End of Year SMARTR Outcome #1: Math

By May 21, 2021, 85% of students will achieve 3s (meeting grade-level expectations in accuracy) or higher on a computation and estimation math common assessment.  

Students who did not achieve 3s will move up at least one continuum in the rubric.

Students who achieved 3s (consistent control of grade-level expectations in accuracy) at the baseline assessment point (deadline 10/2/2020) and then took the following grade-level’s assessment will be expected to increase their overall raw score on that above grade-level assessment.

Strategy 1  

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

Strategy 2

  • Consistent use of open-response math common assessments, designed to elicit student problem solving, across units throughout the year in Collaborative Teams to drive instruction.

Strategy 3

  • Professional development to support teachers in reaching these math SIIP goals.

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #2: Reading

By May 21, 2021, 85% of all kindergarten students will name at least 48 out of 52 letters, will identify the use of initial sounds with 44 out of 48 letters, and will read 14 out of 20 High Frequency Words.

Strategy 1

  • Teachers will implement effective core literacy instruction in a workshop format as assessed by FCPS Elementary Literacy Framework guidelines.  

Strategy 2

  • Teachers will continue to  implement the Kindergartners Learning About Print (KLAP) program to plan and instruct students in early literacy skills.

By May 21,  2021, 85% of students in grades 1-6 who scored at or below the 39th percentile on the BOY iReady assessment will make at least one year’s growth in reading progress as assessed by the DRA2 PMT (see appendix).  This includes our target subgroup populations (Black, ESOL, SPED students).

Strategy 1

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

Strategy 2

  • Teachers will use data from  formative assessments to guide instruction.
