RAMS Road Map Change in grading practices RAMS Academy Focus on Equity Focus on Literacy PBIS Pre-AP ELL – Sheltered Content Target Services – SLAM, SEGE, AVID
RAMS Academy An in-school homework/assignment help program whose main purpose is to set aside time during the school day for students to complete missing assignments that might other wise prevent the student from being successful in a class.
Focus on Literacy
Academic SMART Goal Using the fall to spring MAP growth indicators in reading, RAMS students will move from baseline (55-64% of students meet expected growth in RIT target) to Progress (65-69% of students meet expected growth in RIT target) by Spring Using the fall to spring MAP growth indicators in math, RAMS students will move from baseline (55- 64% of students meet expected growth in RIT target) to Progress (65-69% of students meet expected growth in RIT target) by Spring 2011.

Equity SMART Goal During the school years, RAMS will reduce the discipline referral to less than 10% over-representation of students of color.
Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports
What is PBIS? Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports Framework for improving our schools social behavior climate and supporting or enhancing the impact of academic instruction on achievement. The emphasis is on preventing problems and providing a comprehensive and consistent continuum of positive behavior support. Staff can use data to evaluate their efforts. Shifting the focus to prevention minimizes behavioral problems and increases academic time for students.
When this type of system is fully in place: Staff are more consistent in their expectations and actions. Students and staff are positively recognized for demonstrating expectations. Families and the community know these expectations. A more positive relationship exists between and among staff and students. Focus is on an educational approach to teaching, modeling and acknowledging expectations. Providing predictability, stability, clear limits, consistency, and routine helps create safe learning environments. Structure helps children develop internal control and self-discipline by organizing their world and providing age-appropriate opportunities for them to make their own positive decisions.

PRE-ADVANCED PLACEMENT (Pre-AP)
Pre-AP is… An inclusive program for encouraging more students to access higher learning A way of thinking and approaching the classroom A tool for working together in the same direction A system for strengthening the skills every student needs to succeed – in AP, on SAT, in college, and in careers It is neither a prescribed set of courses nor a prescribed curriculum.
Pre-AP – not a course, but a concept that: Builds rigorous curricula Promotes AP access to more students Prepares students for success when they take AP and other challenging courses
Effects of Pre-AP and AP Better prepared academically More likely to choose challenging majors Likely to complete more college-level work Likely to perform significantly better than students who did not take AP courses More likely to exercise leadership More likely to graduate with a double major Twice as likely to go into advanced study Willingham and Morris,1986, UT Study 1988

SEGE Social Emotional Gifted Education TOPS Targeted Opportunities for Success S.L.A.M. Students Learn & Achieve More AVID Advancement Via Individual Determination
TOPS-Targeted Opportunities for Success Targeted Services (nicknamed TOPS - Targeted Opportunities for Success), is a year- round extended academic math and reading program for K-8 students who have lower test scores, academic concerns, or are identified by teachers as at risk for academic success. Qualifying students are invited to attend before and after school classes taught by licensed teachers, often their own classroom teacher.Continual Learning Plans are developed for each student by the teachers. There is also a 5-week summer school program offered free which also provides transportation and a snack. The small class sizes, 12 students or less, allow teachers to meet the individual student needs and provide intensive reinforcement of necessary math and reading lessons necessary for success during the school day. Continual Learning Plans are developed for each student in partnership with teachers and parents.
S.L.A.M. Students Learn and Achieve More SLAM Saturday is an extension of TOPS. It meets on Saturday toward that end of each Trimester. Students are invited to attend if they are missing work and/or have low grades. 4-5 staff have the students go through an academic boot camp: organization, computer (school center checking grades), cleaning out their binders and lockers, role playing, self advocacy, goal setting and work time to complete work.
