End of Year SMARTR Outcome #1

By the end of the 2017 – 2018 school year, 85% of our students will make progress in writing by meeting or exceeding the Expected level on the Composition and Written Expression Rubric.

The students who do not make or exceed Expected expectations will make progress from the baseline assessment accordingly:

Students who score in the Beginning category will move to the Approaching category.

Students who scored in the Approaching category will move up to Expected.

Students who scored Expected will develop in one or more areas of the Extended strands.

Strategy 1  

  • Teachers will implement core writing instruction in a workshop format, with a focus on student partnerships, as assessed by the FCPS Elementary Literacy Framework guidelines.

Strategy 2

  • Teachers will use FCPS writing rubrics across units to differentiate and guide instruction.  

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #2

By the end of the 2017 – 2018 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 will be given the following grade-level’s assessment at mid-year will be expected to increase their overall raw score by the end of the year.

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

  • Consistent use of Number Talks to strengthen student conceptual and procedural knowledge.

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #3

By the end of the 2017 – 2018 school year, 90% of Hispanic students in grades 3-6 who fall below the 39th percentile on the baseline iREADY assessment will make more than one year’s progress as measured by DRA2.

Strategy 1

  • Teachers will provide comprehensive reading instruction through guided reading group implementation to remediate targeted students.
