Reflections on the 2015-16 School Year

Roosevelt Elementary School has a great foundation on which to build our educational plan and school community: our students, parents, staff and community partners. We have a community that tirelessly lends its support through special events, donations, and volunteerism to make it possible for our teachers and staff to continually provide a quality education for our children.

This past year, our students’ assessment scores demonstrated the following achievements:

English Language Arts. Scores were above the state average in 3rd (+20.9%), 4th (+2.3%), and 6th (8.3%) grades.

Math: Scores were above the state average in 3rd (+17.9%), 5th (+ 2.8%) and 6th (+22.6%) grades.

Science: Fifth grade science has a four year positive trend in % of students at level 4 to 42.6%; 81% are at standard; scores are 15% higher than the state average.

Plans for the 2016-17 School Year

Our main goal is to create a learning community where every student is receiving excellent instruction every day. We will be focusing on building community in our classrooms, across our school with staff and students, as well as with our families so that all students make at least one year’s growth.

The Roosevelt content focus is math which aligns to the district focus of math.

We chose math after reviewing past Measurement of Student Progress and Smarter Balance Assessment data. Our root cause analysis showed that pacing, instructional strategies, interventions, knowledge of math facts, and scheduling of SBA testing were challenges we needed to address.

Our assessments will be used to guide our instruction.

We will use the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment for grades third-sixth three times during the year. The results will be used to create small, flexible groups for intervention, as well as to guide next steps for instruction. Kindergarten teachers use the WA Kids assessment in the fall to gather information to inform their instruction as well as other informal literacy assessments throughout the year. Kindergarten-second grades use enVisions assessments for math. First/second grades use various informal assessments for reading.

Remediation Summary:

After-school math support for 5th grade; 3rd-6th grades reading support after school; RTI team assigned to K-6th grade levels for 30 minutes for small group, focused, double-dose of reading instruction; extra 30 minutes of literacy support for six struggling kindergarten students; school-wide universal screenings using DIBELS in reading; DRA in first 3x per year, STAR for 1st-6th; MAP assessment used for grades 3rd-6th; small group instruction in RTI; progress monitoring using the Houghton Mifflin curriculum, DIBELS, & DRA/STAR; collaboration time looking at tiered instruction & movement in response to individual student needs; small group and individual support using volunteers; AmeriCorps member to support struggling students; continue to explore Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS).

Professional Development.

The School District will continue regularly scheduled collaborative time so teachers can support each other in understanding student achievement data and its connection to instructional strategies, curriculum and assessment.Additionally, Roosevelt staff development activities will be aligned with the action plans listed in our continuous School Improvement Plan and supported by data. The Instructional Leadership Team team will guide, review and schedule whole staff professional development. Our professional development will include learning times for both teachers and paraeducators. Our foci of our school is: 1. Building Community; 2. Helping all students make at least one year’s growth; and 3. Math.
