However, we saw an increase this year of library patrons! ** 2011-2012 is the first year with the Automated Patron Counter; all other years were only estimates. February, 2012 and February 2013 - Automated Patron Counter stopped working for a couple of weeks, so some estimating involved during those two weeks..

Objective 2: Teachers will differentiate for learners who demonstrate proficiency and for learners who are not demonstrating growth. Results: Results indicated that classrooms with consistent fact review and student charting showed an increase in fluency.
District Goal: Align instructional practices with data Horizon Goal 3: Teachers will engage in data discussions and coaching opportunities to refine their instructional practices and differentiation strategies. Objective 1: All teachers will receive training in using MAP and other sources of classroom and school data as measured by documentation in grade level team meeting minutes. This information will be used to tier students as part of RtI process. Results: All grade level teams participated in a 4 week training regarding RtI.
