2016-2017 School LAND Trust Plan

School Plan 2016-2017

1. Briefly describe the School LAND Trust Plan by explaining each goal the council has identified.
Goal#1: Improve the reading ability as measured by the DIBELS test, of students in 1st grade through 3rd grade by 35%.

b. Highlight the academic area for this goal from the list. You may select more than one area for this goal.

Reading

c. Identify the specific measurement(s) you will use to determine if you are making progress towards the goal. Include the baseline and completed measurement.

We will use the DIBELS which will give us a baseline indicator at the beginning of the year. Students who are not at grade level in grades k-3 will then be monitored using the DIBELS every 3 to 6 weeks in a progress monitor situation to see if we need to change the instruction those students receive in small groups.

d. List the specific steps of the ACTION PLAN to reach this goal. Be sure to include a description of how each expenditure is part of the action plan.

Students in grades K-3 who do not reach benchmark levels as determined by the DIBELs test will receive additional help in small group settings. Aide time will be purchased to allow this help to be given to students in need, or to work with other groups which will allow the teacher to work with those students needing the most help. ERI, Words Their Way, Read Naturally, and other programs will be used to assist learning based upon individual needs.

e. Does this goal include a behavioral/character education/leadership component?
NO

f. Planned expenditures (for all expenditures that are not included in part e)
Expenditure Categories:
Salaries and Employee Benefits (100 and 200)...........................$14,000 reading aide(s) salary

Goal #2 Technology education will increase typing speed and increase the understanding of how learning fits into the information age to prepare students to succeed in a world of computers and instant communication.

b. Highlight the academic area for this goal from the list. You may select more than one area for this goal.
Technology

Professional development

c. Identify the specific measurement(s) you will use to determine if you are making progress towards the goal. Include the baseline and completed measurement.

A typing speed test will be used to assess the amount of improvement in typing grades 3-6. A baseline test will be given in September and then again in May to determine improvement. Since it is difficult to test how technology learning fits into student’s world, Power Point, Spreadsheet, Internet navigation, google drive apps, and Word Processing abilities will be assessed utilizing teacher observation to assess growth and the value of this goal.

d. List the specific steps of the ACTION PLAN to reach this goal. Be sure to include a description of how each expenditure is part of the action plan.

1. Students in every grade will receive age appropriate instruction designed to help them understand technology, its uses in learning, and distribution of information. To make this happen, a technology aide will be utilized to plan and teach lessons under the direction of the teacher that will expose students to the educational usage of Power Point, Spreadsheet, Internet navigation, and Word Processing as well as other educational programs that emphasize what students are learning in their CORE classes. Typing will be taught which will assist students in taking the SAGE test especially the writing component where multiple paragraphs are expected. This goal will also help with our professional development allowing teachers to work in learning communities and lesson studies while their kids are working on technology lessons.

2. Teachers will receive training on ‘Tech Wednesdays’ from Alan Rhees, a 6th grade teacher at our school, who knows how to use the technology from a ‘teacher’s perspective’. He will help teachers to see new uses of technology, the latest software, educational options, and provide follow-up support. Alan will be encouraged to attend the UCET conference and continue to keep up on current technology advances to then keep the rest of the faculty current on best practices with technology

e. Does this goal include a behavioral/character education/leadership component?
NO

f. Planned expenditures (for all expenditures that are not included in part e)
You may select more than one category for each goal.
Expenditure Categories:
Salaries and Employee Benefits (100 and 200).....................$11,500 technology aide(s) salary

Goal #3 Increase the engagement level of students in our school:

b. Highlight the academic area for this goal from the list. You may select more than one area for this goal.

Reading
Fine Arts
Science
Writing
Technology
Health
Foreign Language
Social Studies
Professional development

c. Identify the specific measurement(s) you will use to determine if you are making progress towards the goal. Include the baseline and completed measurement.

Engagement levels will be determined utilizing a school wide observation form tracking student opportunities to respond and a visual engagement checklist by the principal. This will take place school wide in the first 3 weeks of school. A comparison will be taken mid-year and again in May to assess improvement of engagement at the school.

d. List the specific steps of the ACTION PLAN to reach this goal. Be sure to include a description of how each expenditure is part of the action plan.

1. Professional Development will assist teachers in their delivery of engaging lessons. Teachers will participate in Professional Learning Communities on a regular basis by learning about best practices, discussion of their lessons, a lesson study where they video themselves teaching and then work with other teachers to improve their teaching. To make this time available to teachers, we will need to have an aide take one of the classes, the gym teacher will take one class, and the computer aide will take the last class, thus utilizing them not only for technology, but also for the professional development time.

2. Our music teacher, Dan White, will assist teachers in utilizing music to engage students at the same time he is teaching core concepts. Dan will be showing teachers how to teach math, science, reading etc. utilizing music to helps students remember the more difficult parts. By working with our mentor school, Weber State University, Dan will be utilizing best practice and learning from other teachers who are also using an art form to teach core concepts.

3. To improve science and math lessons, teachers will be asked to include manipulatives and science experiments. To accomplish this goal, supplies that get used up will be purchased as well as manipulatives purchased to make the learning more hands-on.

4. The last place where engagement will increase is that 5th grade will be engaged through the curriculum of Junior Achievement where they learn about the workforce, banking and finances and then put it all into practice going to ‘work for a day’ at the Junior Achievement City in Salt Lake.

e. Does this goal include a behavioral/character education/leadership component?
NO

f. Planned expenditures (for all expenditures that are not included in part e)

Funding Summary for 2015-2016

Trustlands final reporting of school year 2015-2016

Goal #1

Improve the reading ability as measured by the DIBELS test, of students in 1st grade through 3rd grade by 20% by May 2016.

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

We will use the DIBELS which will give us a baseline indicator at the beginning of the year. Students who are not at grade level will then be monitored using the DIBELS every 3 weeks in a progress monitor situation to see if we need to change the instruction those students receive in small groups.

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

We utilized the DIBELS indicator test at the beginning of the year to gather a baseline and to help us identify students who may need extra assistance.  We then used the progress monitoring tests available with DIBELS to monitor what students were doing to keep our small groups appropriate and addressing those areas where students were struggling.  Our average scores at the beginning of the year (BOY) and end of the year (EOY) are as follows:

1st grade BOY = 56.79,  EOY = 83.78 Avg growth 1st grade = 47.51%; 

2nd grade BOY = 74.18,  EOY = 112.41 Avg growth 2nd grade = 51.54%;

3rd grade BOY = 107.72,  EOY = 143.44 Avg growth 3rd grade = 33.15%;

When we look school wide, the numbers are:

BOY = 81.79,  EOY = 115.71 Avg growth school wide = 41.47%

which is well above the growth we had set as our goal.       

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

Students in grades k-3 who do not reach benchmark levels as determined by the DIBELs test will receive additional help in small group settings. Aide time will be purchased to allow this help to be given to students in need, or to work with other groups which will allow the teacher to work with those students needing the most help. ERI, Words Their Way, Read Naturally, and other programs will be used to assist learning based upon individual needs. In 2nd grade we noticed a need for more non-fiction, high-interest readers to assist struggling readers in small group instruction, so we will be purchasing 10 sets of six books for this purpose.

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

We utilized our reading aides to help students who were identified by the DIBLES indicator test.  These aides worked in small groups on age appropriate and need specific materials to helps students to improve their reading skill.  These interventions did include ERI, Words their Way sorts, Read Naturally reading passages, as well as Imagine Learning, Reading Horizons reading supports.  $11,708 was spent on salaries for the aides helping with these small groups.

 $144 was spent on the high interest books in 2nd grade. Due to a miscommunication among teachers the remaining $266 was not spent on time and was requested to be carried over to be spent at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year.

Goal #2

Technology education will increase typing speed and increase the understanding of how learning fits into the information age to prepare students to succeed in a world of computers and instant communication by May 2016.

Academic Areas

  • Technology

Measurements

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

A typing speed test will be used to assess the amount of improvement in typing grades 3-6. A baseline test will be given in September and then again in May to determine improvement. Since it is difficult to test how technology learning fits into student's world, Power Point, Spreadsheet, Internet navigation, and Word Processing abilities will be assessed utilizing teacher observation to assess growth and the value of this goal.

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

Our technology aide used ATRT to teach typing skills to the students.  At the beginning of the year she took their first assessment and their concluding assessment to determine percent growth and average words per minute increase in students.  Students had to use the correct fingering and not the hunt and peck method of typing in order for the typing to count.  Here are the results of those assessments: (BOY= Beginning of Year, EOY = End of Year)

3rd grade BOY: zero WPM EOY: 9.265 WPM which shows a 9.265 WPM gain

4th grade BOY 7.85 WPM EOY: 17.04 WPM which shows a 9.19 WPM gain (117%)

5th grade BOY 14.93 WPM EOY: 25.11 WPM which shows a 10.18 WPM gain (68.2%)

6th grade BOY 20.98 WPM EOY:  WPM which shows a 9.19 WPM gain (63.8%)

School wide AVG growth 10.41 WPM (83.1%)

Teacher observation of growth in Power Point, Spreadsheet, internet navigation, and Word processing abilities pointed out a need to train on and utilize Google products due to our use of the Chromebook format, but overall teachers felt that the technology aide was well worth the time and money being spent to increase technology understanding.  Our technology aid assistance was especially useful during the PLC process since it allows students to be progressing with their skills while allowing teachers the professional development they get to participate in.

Action Plan Steps

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

Students in every grade will receive age appropriate instruction designed to help them understand technology, its uses in learning, and distribution of information. To make this happen, a technology aide will be utilized to plan and teach lessons under the direction of the teacher that will expose students to the educational usage of Power Point, Spreadsheet, Internet navigation, and Word Processing as well as other educational programs that emphasize what students are learning in their CORE classes. Typing will be taught which will assist students in taking the SAGE test especially the writing component where multiple paragraphs are expected. This goal will also help with our professional development allowing teachers to work in learning communities and lesson studies while their kids are working on technology lessons. After we learned of a carryover from a previous year’s allotment due to a miscommunication, we determined that we would like to purchase 24 chrome books and a carrying cart which cost $10,051.  These Chromebook computers were used to help teach technology in the classroom and used to assist in Computer testing of the SAGE.

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

We were able to utilize a teacher’s aide to teach our technology classes which included the typing for grades 3-6.  She included internet safety into her instruction as well as the internet navigation and Imagine Learning reading program with our younger grades.  As developmentally appropriate, with the help from teachers, she then added skills in word processing, spreadsheet, Power Point, Google Classroom, and other educational applications of technology.

As per the decision to purchase additional technology, we purchased the 24 Chromebook computers which made technology more readily available to our 3rd through 6th grades inspiring, and allowing many teachers to utilize Google Classroom and other technology in their lessons as well as writing simulations in a computer based setting.  Writing instruction tied into their typing skills as they typed for their SAGE testing which improved by a score of 38 in the ELA test section according to the School Grades put out by the USOE. This as well as our sustained growth in Math, and Science all combined to earning an “A” for our school on the SAGE test.

Goal #3

Increase the engagement level of students in our school by 10% from September to May as measured by walk-through observation form.

Academic Areas

  • Reading
  • Mathematics
  • Writing
  • Technology
  • Science
  • Fine Arts
  • Social Studies
  • Health
  • Foreign Language

Measurements

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

Engagement levels will be determined utilizing a school wide observation form tracking student opportunities to respond and a visual engagement checklist by the principal. This will take place school wide in the first 3 weeks of school. A comparison will be taken mid-year and again in May to assess improvement of engagement at the school.

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

Data was kept utilizing a modified walk-through data form that was designed by Education Innovations, we tracked student opportunities to respond and engagement levels of students.  Beginning of the year data was collected from September 7-25th, Middle of the year data was collected from January 12- January 27th, and End of the year testing was collected from April 18- April 28th.  It was decided that May would not be a fair month to assess engagement levels due to SAGE testing and other classroom disruptions.   All three incidents were measured by the principal who has gone through a calibration process with the Education Innovations Consulting Company in the 2014-2015 school year.  Data represents a 10-minute walk-through for each teacher which keeps track of students’ opportunities to respond where a single student responds, where all students respond in a choral situation, and where all students respond using an action or an action with a verbal response.  Data is also collected for engagement where students are counted as engaged if they are exhibiting behaviors one would expect from a student who is on task.  If a teacher is speaking, students would be expected to be looking at the teacher, if the request is to be working at their desk a student would need to be at their desk with pencil in hand etc.

 Data collected is presented in a school wide average as follows:

BOY opportunities to respond Single student: 12.6 choral response: 4.2 all accountable 6.21 Engaged behaviors 85.71%

MOY opportunities to respond Single student: 13.2 choral response: 6.87 all accountable 7.15 Engaged behaviors 90.44%

EOY opportunities to respond Single student: 11.25 choral response: 8.31 all accountable 10.68 Engaged behaviors 92.85%

This data represents an overall growth of 31.42% in opportunities to respond going from 23.01 to 30.24 opportunities average.  In engagement levels it is a 8.33% growth in percent of students engaged in a lesson.

Action Plan Steps

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

Professional Development will assist teachers in their delivery of engaging lessons. Teachers will participate in Professional Learning Communities on a regular basis by learning about best practices, discussion of their lessons, a lesson study where they video themselves teaching and then work with other teachers to improve their teaching (this is why we will purchase the camera base). To make this time available to teachers, we will need to have an aide take one of the classes, the gym teacher will take one class, and the computer aide will take the last class, thus utilizing them not only for technology, but also for the professional development time. Our music teacher, Dan White, will assist teachers in utilizing music to engage students at the same time he is teaching core concepts. Dan will be showing teachers how to teach math, science, reading etc. utilizing music to helps students remember the more difficult parts. By working with our mentor school, Weber State University, Dan will be utilizing best practice and learning from other teachers who are also using an art form to teach core concepts. To improve science and math lessons, teachers will be asked to include manipulatives and science experiments. To accomplish this goal, supplies that get used up will be purchased as well as manipulatives purchased to make the learning more hands-on. The last place where engagement will increase is that 5th grade will be engaged through the curriculum of Junior Achievement where they learn about the workforce, banking and finances and then put it all into practice going to work for a day? at the Junior Achievement City in Salt Lake.

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

Professional development went as planned with our Professional Learning Communities (PLC) occurring 26 times for every grade. Once a month one teacher per grade would video themselves teaching a lesson and bring that with them to the PLC meeting.  Teachers in the grade and the principal would then have a lesson study utilizing the video taken to look at best practices including opportunities to respond, positives to corrective feedback from the teacher, engagement levels, wait time, depth of knowledge questions and tasks, and other teaching strategies as identified by Hattie’s research on effective practices.

Our music teacher did a great job of integrating music into the core and helping teachers to see how music can help their students to remember what they learn.  A few of the ways he helped included: understanding of early American culture and practices, size in space and planet composition, trade and customs influencing US history, erosion, fractions, multiplication, and many others.  In his culminating experience, students performed a musical in grades 3-6 to showcase what they had learned.  Teachers have expressed that they liked to see how the music can influence an understanding of concepts that at times are difficult to remember for some students.

Goal #4

In one year improve the mathematical abilities of students who struggle at the 3rd and 4th grade level with their basic math functions as defined by the pre-assessment and observation of teachers given in September.

Academic Areas

  • Mathematics

Measurements

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

Grade level math assessments will be used for identification purposes and then re-given at the end of the year only for those students who received help with the math aide to show progress from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

This year in 3rd and 4th grade we used our SLO tests as provided by our district.  These tests are grade specific that allow us to track which concepts are being understood by students as they master the CORE.  We tested students at the beginning, middle and ending of the year.  Students who did not have the pre-requisite concepts mastered were the students who received intervention in the first quarter and then in subsequent quarters, any student who did not master the SLO target test would then receive interventions in a small group as well. Below are the scores of those students who were identified in September as needing interventions and their score on the same SLO test in May.

September Avg Score: 12.5%

May Avg Score 72.88%

This shows a 60.38 percentage point gain with those students who were struggling at the beginning of the year.  

Action Plan Steps

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

An aide will work on building not only fluency, but understanding of concepts with those students who are identified as not having a sufficient understanding. She will be able to work with a small group of students on a weekly basis to improve understanding utilizing manipulatives and simple arithmetic fluency speed.

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

We utilized two aides who worked with the different grades in helping with students who were identified by the SLO test as needing extra help.  They worked with students in small groups an average of 1.5 hours a day (30 minutes in three classrooms.)  The help included working on fact fluency as well as the current misunderstandings.

Expenditures

Category Description Estimated Cost Actual Cost Actual Use
  Total: $3,200 $4,482  
Salaries and Employee Benefits (100 and 200) Math aide salary $3,200 $4,482  

Actual Carry-over

In the Financial Proposal and Report, there is a carry-over of $9,504 to the 2016-2017 school year. This is 24% of the distribution received in 2015-2016 of $40,427. Please describe the reason for a carry-over of more than 10% of the distribution.

We were expecting a $3500 cost for the AmeriCorps reading aide and it was not taken from our account. We are currently trying to figure out where the error occurred. We were also told that our portion of our Music Teacher would be $3000 and it ended up only costing $662 causing an extra $2338. Finally we were quoted $500 entrance to Junior Achievement City, but due to a private donation to the JA City, they did not charge the entrance fee. Had these changes not occurred, we would have had a carry over of $3166 which is less than 8%. We will figure out what happened with AmeriCorps and then quickly amend this years plan to utilize the extra funds immediately.

Increased Distribution

The school plan describes how additional funds exceeding the estimated distribution would be spent. This is the description.

If there are any remaining funds they will be placed toward goal 1 with more non-fiction books purchased for 2nd and other grades who need them. We will also purchase more aide time to be able to have more small-group time with struggling readers, depending upon how much additional fund we receive, we may also put some toward goal 3 to improve the engagement of students.

Description of how any additional funds exceeding the estimated distribution were actually spent.

The extra funds were rolled into our amendment which we used to purchase Chromebook laptops for student use in goal #2 and Goal #3

Publicity

The following items are the proposed methods of how the Plan would be publicized to the community:

  • Letters to policy makers and/or administrators of trust lands and trust funds.
  • School newsletter
  • School website

The school plan was actually publicized to the community in the following way(s):

  • Sticker and stamps that identify purchases made with School LAND Trust funds.
  • School assembly
  • School newsletter
  • School website

Plan Amendments

Approved Amendment #1

Due to an additional carry over that was not anticipated, we are amending our budget for the 2015-2016 school year to increase the amount spent on our current goals which will include the following changes: Goal 2 will include: $4508 to purchase 14 Chromebook laptops will be purchased to allow more students access to the technology and opportunities to collaborate. Currently we have a Chromebook lab that is used by 5th and 6th grade and they are utilizing it to the point that other grades do not have the opportunity to use them. We would like to purchase 14 additional Chromebooks which would allow our 3rd and 4th grade to have enough to have two students share in a class setting. Our PTA is looking at purchasing 12 more which would allow us to have a class set allowing a one-to-one situation with 3rd and 4th grades. Having a one-to-one ratio would allow individual typing and other practice, and when desired two classes could use a collaboration model where two students worked on the same program, Power point, spreadsheet, or writing project. Goal 3 will include: An additional $400 towards the purchase of science and math manipulatives to create more engagement with hands on lessons. Goal #4 will include an additional $3000 towards a math aide who will help students who are struggling with concepts that have been previously taught but not mastered.
