HACKETT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Arkansas Comprehensive School Improvement Plan

2014-2015


Believing that all students can learn, the mission of Hackett Elementary School is to provide a learning environment that enables students to attain their full potential. Hackett Elementary will establish a well-developed educational program with emphasis in literacy, math, and technology that will network teachers, students, parents, and community with the resources necessary to compete successfully in the 21st Century.

Grade Span: K-6 Title I: Title I Schoolwide School Improvement: SI_1

Table of Contents

Priority 1: Literacy
    Goal: All student will improve in reading comprehension and open response items.
Priority 2: Mathematics
    Goal: All students will improve in patterns, algebra, & functions and answering open response items.
Priority 3: Wellness
    Goal: Students participating in the BMI activity show a need to improve their cardiovascular, muscular strenght/endurance, and flexibility activity.

Priority 1: The district and elementary school leadership literacy teams have reviewed the 3 year data from grades 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th. A review of the data indicates that we have made significant gains in literacy. Our 2010-2011 success rate was 66.1, our 2011-2012 rate was 78.89. Our 2012-2013 rate increased to 81.50. Our 2014 scores were 90% in 3rd and 4th grades. Our 5th grade is still strong, while the 6th grade follows the state trend of dipping slightly. The building leadership teams redesigned the remediation process and targeted students who were not successful and placed them into small groups as many as 3 times per week. This intense work, with various forms of instruction, i.e. hands on activities, SmartBoard instruction and one on one sessions, demonstrate that students sometimes need a different approach. We have also purchased an assessment program, Northwest Assessment Program (MAP) to help gauge growth throughout the year. We will assess 3 times during the school year to ensure a positive trend in literacy growth.
Supporting Data:
GoalAll student will improve in reading comprehension and open response items.
BenchmarkHackett Elementary was an achieving school in literacy for 2013-14. It is expected that All Students, the Targeted Achievement Gap Group and all ESEA subgroups will meet or exceed the individual 2014 AMO performance and growth targets for literacy and will meet or exceed the state average by 5% in the 2014-15 school year.
Intervention: Hackett Elementary will utilize the Phonetic Connection Program for phonological and phonemic awareness instruction.

COMPREHENSIVE NEEDS ASSESSMENT: We formed ACSIP Leadership Teams and analyzed the test scores from the 2014 administration of the 3RD-6TH grade (Augmented Benchmark)and ITBS Exams. We examined the results from both the combined population and each subpopulation. We conducted data analysis to determine our main areas of weakness. In addition, we studied the three most recent years of Attendance,Disciplinary, Formative and Summative Achievement Data across grade levels within our building. We aggregated and disaggregated all the data for the purpose of establishing student learning and behavioral goals. We looked at our trend data in order to better identify the specific areas of need and help align classroom instruction with our curriculum, assessment and professional development. We examined our routines, customs, and norms in order to dig deeper for the root cause why more of our students are not achieving to their full potential. Our 2013 Supporting Data Statements show the discrepancies in achievement, among our various populations. We are modifying our Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment and Professional Development practices to better meet the needs of all our populations. Based on our Data Analysis we came to the conclusion that the following areas reflect our greatest need within the Literacy Priority: vocabulary and reading comprehension. We will select Interventions and coordinate our various state and federal funding sources to address these areas. In addition, we meet in k-6 teams, and as an entire faculty so that we can review formative, “real time” classroom performance data for the purpose of making decisions regarding the direction, and focus, of our Classroom Instruction. PROGRAM EVALUATION- refer back to data section. MAP is being used, 3 times throughout the school year. After each assessment, classroom teachers and the curriculum coordinator meet together to study the data and determine the best course of action for those students who are in danger of falling behind.

Hackett Elementary will provide for activities to ease the student's emotional and academic TRANSITION from early childhood programs to elementary school programs. We believe that the transition from preschool to kindergarten is one of the most important times in a student's academic career. Our school will continue to provide preschool students with a variety of opportunities to transition into kindergarten. These activities include: Preschool registration, completion of required paperwork, school wide tours, open house prior to the beginning of the school year, monitoring, and identification, of students who exhibit developmental delays with the goal of targeting individual needs as they enter kindergarten. Service providers and parents will be provided with forms and information packets outlining procedures to ensure a successful transition. When appropriate, conferences will be scheduled in order to development plans (IEP, 04, etc.) that will empower teachers in meeting the needs of students entering school.

SCHOOL LEADERSHIP TEAM: Closing the Achievement Gap (Literary): Regular meetings of our Literacy ACSIP Leadership Committee will continue to be held. These meetings will focus on building capacity within our school. Each meeting agenda will include the following Core Principles: A. The selection of research-based, scientifically validated interventions designed to help us enhance our ability to improve student performance on the literacy portion of all high stakes exams; B. The ongoing monitoring of student progress in order to influence classroom instruction; C. The utilization of Formative and Summative Assessment Data to make decisions that impact curriculum, instruction, and professional development. D. Coordination of resources in order to better meet the needs of all students. Written minutes of each meeting, along with a sign-in sheet, will be kept and made available upon request. The intent is that each intervention and action is carefully monitored through the collection of Formative and Summative Data so that those strategies which prove ineffective can be revised or abandoned. Our ACSIP Plan will be revised each spring and fall in order to keep it timely and valid in our efforts to improve teaching and learning.

Priority 2: Our math scores also saw good solid gains. Our 3rd and 4th grade classrooms saw a huge increase in scores, while our 5th and 6th grade classrooms still need help. Overall, our leadership teams indicated that we are heading upward as our scores during the 2014 school year were higher than the previous three years. The building leadership teams have decided to push in instruction in these grades to see if the smaller groups can impact student learning. We have also purchased several software programs aimed at increasing math skills. We are also using the NWEA assessment program, (MAP) to help gauge growth throughout the year. We will assess 3 times during the school year to ensure a positive trend in math growth.

COMPREHENSIVE NEEDS ASSESSMENT: We formed ACSIP Leadership Teams and analyzed the test scores from the 2012 administration of the 3rd-6th grade (Augmented Benchmark) and ITBS Exams. We examined the results from both the combined population and EACH subpopulation. We conducted data analysis to determine our main areas of weakness. In addition, we studied the three most recent years of Attendance,Disciplinary, Formative and Summative Achievement Data across grade levels within our building. We aggregated and disaggregated all the data for the purpose of establishing student learning and behavioral goals. We looked at our trend data in order to better identify the specific areas of need and help align classroom instruction with our curriculum, assessment and professional development. We examined our routines, customs, and norms in order to dig deeper for the root cause why more of our students are not achieving to their full potential. Our 2012 Supporting Data Statements show the discrepancies in achievement, among our various populations. We are modifying our Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment and Professional Development practices to better meet the needs of all our populations. Based on our Data Analysis we came to the conclusion that the following areas reflect our greatest need within the Math Priority: computation, data interpretation. We will select Interventions and coordinate our various state and federal funding sources to address these areas. IN addition, we meet in K-6 teams,and as an entire faculty so that we can review formative, “real time” classroom performance data for the purpose of making decisions regarding the direction, and focus, of our Classroom Instruction.

COMPREHENSIVE NEEDS ASSESSMENT: We formed ACSIP Leadership Teams and analyzed the BMI scores from K-6th grade. We conducted data analysis to determine our main areas of weakness. In addition, we studied the three most recent years of Attendance,Disciplinary, Formative and Summative Achievement Data across grade levels within our building. We aggregated and disaggregated all the data for the purpose of establishing student learning and behavioral goals. We looked at our trend data in order to better identify the specific areas of need and help align classroom instruction with our curriculum, assessment and professional development. We examined our routines, customs, and norms in order to dig deeper for the root cause why more of our students are not achieving to their full potential. Our 2013 Supporting Data Statements show the discrepancies in achievement, among our various populations. Students participating in the BMI activity show a need to improve their cardiovascular, muscular strength/endurance, and flexibility activity. We are modifying our Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment and Professional Development practices to better meet the needs of all our populations. We will select Interventions and coordinate our various state and federal funding sources to address these areas. IN addition, we meet in k-6 teams, and as an entire faculty so that we can review formative, “real time” classroom performance data for the purpose of making decisions regarding the direction, and focus, of our Classroom Instruction. PROGRAM EVALUATION: The elementary PE coach designs and implements programs to help decrease the negative BMI results. Refer to Data Section.
