Municipal Elementary Land Trust Plan 2017-2018

Goal #1

Goal

Our goal is to improve student performance on DIBLES and SAGE. Our target goal on DIBLES is to

have a 5% increase from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. SAGE test scores will

increase by 3% by EOY.

Academic Areas

  • Reading
  • Mathematics

Measurements

We will use DIBELS scores (three time a year) to determine if students are making 
adequate yearly progress. Sage benchmark tests will be given throughout the year
and data will be looked at iAction Plan Steps
Students will be targeted using data gathered through the DIBELS, SAGE benchmark 
tests, and common formative assessments. This data will be used to screen and progress
monitor students on a regular, ongoing basis, in order to design effective
interventions, adjust instructional groupings and measure student growth in identified areas.
Students scoring below grade level on the assessment will receive Tier II interventions,
in addition to whole group and differentiated instruction in their classrooms.
Data will also be analyzed during the PLC collaboration meetings to determine individual
and overall student growth. During this process teachers will adjust whole group
and small group instruction, as needed. Throughout the year teachers will be involved in
professional development through the School Leadership Team, PLC teams, faculty
training's and additional off-campus professional development. These plans include ongoing
training on topics related to literacy instruction, side-by-side coaching from
our reading specialist, and effective team collaboration.The school will pay for supplemental
aide time to support teachers in differentiated instruction in reading and
PLC time. Teachers will meet weekly in collaborative teams to review student data, adjust
instruction, and discuss placement of students in small groups for reading,
Language and math instruction. This collaborative time will be created when students attend
computer, P.E., music and library. We would use any additional monies to help with Professional Development in providing means
and opportunities to be trained in the PLC area. This and substitute salaries
to make available other local training's that would help enhance classroom instruction at
Municipal Elementary.

Municipal Elementary School’s Trust Lands Plan 2016-17

Goal #1

Goal

Municipal has set to improve student performance by allocating aide time to work with children in grades K-6 in Fine Arts Instruction. The goal is to deliver Music instruction to 100% of the students weekly for 1/2 hour. We are also supporting the fact that an education including the Arts, P.E. and the Sciences have a positive influence on attitude and achievement scores with children who are given a rich, and well-rounded education. We also want to help improve the talents of our 4th-6th grade students by offering a morning music class where they will sing, practice, and prepare for a school wide production and perform a play for the community and school each Spring.

Academic Areas

  • Fine Arts

  • Reading

  • Mathematics

Measurements

We will use the Sage Mathematics scores as our measuring stick to see a 10% gain of students reaching acceptable levels (3 or a 4) on these tests. We expect a growth in scores by 5 % over those students not involved in extended music classes on the Reading and Mathematics SAGE tests in the 4-6 grade classes. It is a well known fact that students who have a more enriched  learning environment in the music arts generally out perform students who do not have such background and training.

Action Plan Steps

One of the Fine Arts specialist will provide instruction on a weekly basis for half an hour per class. The specialist will meet with each class on all the grade levels on a school year basis to coordinate lessons that are aligned with the Utah Core Standards. They will also be a resource for the needs of a teacher or grade when it comes to special programs and projects.
The other Fine Arts specialist will coordinate and run our school choir and prepare the children for a play in the spring of 2017. This position is labor intensive for 2 hrs a week with direct instruction and a lot of student supervision. It becomes more labor intensive when it comes time in Spring for props, costumes, and sets to be created and organized. The enriched music program will involve a lot of reading, memorizing of lines,  and parts, voice reflection the involvement of mathematics and fractional elements that will enhance the whole child. The students will also be required to be on time and be in attendance each and every class 2 times a week plus extra classes in the late winter which help build character of the individual student.

Goal #2

Goal

The school plan is to show growth in the percentage of children reading at benchmark levels at the end of each grade in comparison to the number of students at benchmark levels in their previous grade. Our targeted goal is 90% achievement for all grades on the (EOY) End of Year DIBLES assessment for 2017.

Academic Areas

  • Reading

Measurements

We will identify students from the previous year's (EOY) Intensive struggling students and the Intensive (BOY) Beginning of Year measurement of DIBLES to decipher which students are at risk. When these students are identified they will be pulled for small group instruction to target the areas they need help. We desire to see increased growth in each of the k-3 grades students with a school-wide targeted rate of 90% of the students in grades K-3 proficient by 2017.

Action Plan Steps

We desire to continue funding the use of a reading aide to work with the Reading Coach. These two employees will work with small groups of students working on reading skills. This will enhance and support the students reading abilities that they are learning in the classroom. These children are the children who have been identified as those who need extra help.

Goal #3

Goal

The school plan is to continue to support our (STEM) program through Project Launch. Project Launch is a Hands On / Minds On approach to enhance Math, Science, Engineering and Technology into each elementary classroom. Municipal has also set to improve student performance in Science Education by have 40% of our students proficient on the Sage test for our 4th, 5th and 6th grade students in the spring of 2017.

Academic Areas

  • Mathematics

  • Technology

  • Science

Measurements

We will use SAGE testing and on-going classroom assessments to guide our instruction and need for materials and staff development in accordance with the Utah Core Standards in Science. We will enhance our science learning by providing resources as available to help with hands-on, minds-on instruction and inquiry learning. One of the best features of Project Launch. Project Launch is an activity designed instruction where supplies will need to be purchased consumed and re-ordered. Our goal is to have 40% of our students proficient on the Spring 2017 Sage Science testing.

Action Plan Steps

Continue funding the consumable products that will be used each year in the Project Launch Curriculum. These products play a vital role in allowing students to learn the basic principles using a Hands On /Minds On learning approach. When needed and financially where possible some monies could be used for professional development. Find and replenish our science resources as made available from school, trust lands, and teacher budgets to get materials that help support the aims and core essential materials for the instruction of science.

Goal #4

Goal

Municipal School desires to continue having a Computer Lab Specialist. This Aide will work with all of the students in teaching Keyboarding and supporting the teachers with their students in the student's writing skills.

Academic Areas

  • Writing

  • Technology

Measurements

We will use the SAGE writing scores as our measuring stick to see a 10% gain of students reaching acceptable levels (3 or a 4) on these tests.  We have an overall desire to see 100% improvement in all of our students in their keyboarding and writing skills. The teachers will keep the administration and the computer lab aide aware of the attitudes of the students and other staff members concerning the student's computer / keyboarding skills. We will schedule 1/2 hour of a  computer lab program for each class, each week.
 This should help give our students an advantage in a keyboard centered world.

Action Plan Steps

The Computer Lab specialist will provide instruction on a weekly basis for half an hour per class. The specialist will meet with each class on all the grade levels on a school year basis to coordinate lessons that are aligned with the Utah Core Standards and prepare the students for SAGE writing exams. They will also be a resource for the needs of a teacher or grade when it comes to special programs and projects.
We will also purchase equipment that will aide in keyboarding skills for the computer lab (keyboard Covers).  We will purchase a new software program that will  be used in teaching Keyboarding in our computer class.
