December 12 BOE (v5 12/06/07) - 16 - Robeson Visual and Performing Arts: Solutions Areas of Concern:Strategies and Practices Used to Address Area of Concern Progress So Far This Year (Student Achievement & Teacher Practice) 1. Low Performance relative to other schools (API) Strengthen department structures so that PLCs are developing by content area and focusing on acceleration strategies, standards- based instruction, and student learning results. Principal feedback to teachers following regular classroom observations focuses sharply on improving instruction. As a result of PD, data collected on teacher practice shows increased use of acceleration strategies in instruction. but evidence in classrooms is still uneven. Principal is holding to schedule of more time in classroom daily and debriefs same day with teachers observed. 2. English Language Learners Provide PD on literacy an EL strategies for all teachers Data inquiry will continue to identify needed accelerations and target instruction (focus on CAHSEE and meeting proficiency targets.) ELL focused PD has been arranged through Instructional Service Provider. Students given support for Math and ELA CAHSEE to achieve AYP target. CAHSEE Passage Rate for 12 th graders is only 74% for Math, but 84% in ELA. Students are still lagging behind district averages on ELA and Math Benchmarks 3. Teacher RetentionNew teachers are being supported through BTSA, principal, coaches. A case manager was hired to support students so that principal can spend more time in classrooms. Feedback to teachers has increased; Classroom strategies to accelerate instruction are more frequently observed.
