School Innovation & Improvement Plan

Outcome goals for this academic school year

School Innovation and Improvement Plan At-a-Glance

  • 2018-2019

  • Fairfax Villa Elementary School

  • Region 5

  • Elizabeth Bumbrey, Principal

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #1

By May 27, 2019, 75% of students who scored 49% or below on the BOY iReady assessment will make at least one year’s reading progress as assessed by the DRA2.

Strategy 1  

  • Teachers will implement core Reading instruction in a workshop format, with a focus on student goal setting and conferencing, as assessed by FCPS Elementary Literacy Framework guidelines.

Strategy 2

  • Teachers will become familiar with common assessments to assess readers and guide goal setting conferences and instruction.

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #2

By May 27, 2019 of the 2018 – 2019 school year, 80% of students will achieve 3s (meeting grade level expectations in accuracy and strategy communication) or higher on a computation and estimation math common assessment.  

Students who achieve 4s (consistent control of grade-level expectations in accuracy and strategy communication) at the mid-year assessment only will be expected to maintain 4s at the end of year.

Students who achieved 4s (consistent control of grade-level expectations in accuracy and strategy communication) at the baseline assessment point and then took the following grade-level’s assessment at mid-year will be expected to increase their overall raw score by the end of the year.

By the end of the year, 15 of our 21 1st-6th grade teachers (i.e., ~70%, an increase of 10 percentage points from the 2017-18 school year) will have shrunk the gap from the BOY testing period between the lowest and highest achievers in their class in computation and estimation accuracy and reasoning. That is, the standard deviation in scores at the EOY testing period will be less than the standard deviation in scores at the BOY.

Strategy 1

  • Support student conceptual knowledge through consistently implementing cooperative learning in Math Workshop in grades K-6.  

Strategy 2

  • Consistent use of math common assessments across units throughout the year in CLTs to drive instruction.

Strategy 3

  • Regular use of Number Talks within the Math Workshop structure to strengthen student conceptual and procedural knowledge.

Strategy 4

  • Implement Advanced Math Grades 3-6.

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #3

By the end of 2018-2019, the Fairfax Villa 5th grade Science SOL pass rate will be 73%, reflecting a 3% increase from the previous year..

Strategy 1

  • Align, unpack, and plan using the new science standards and resources to support science instruction in grades 4 and 5.

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #4

By June 2019, students will complete the EOY rubric with 90% increasing their skillset on at least 3 of the POG attributes.

Students who perform at the highest level on any attribute will provide real-life examples of how they demonstrate that POG attribute.

Strategy 1

  • Utilize a current events class in grades 3-4 to highlight global events and reinforce Portrait of a Graduate attributes.
