Goal 1: Improve Student Achievement Through Standards-Based Education

Strategic Actions
Performance Targets

1.1 Implement a classroom observation system that focuses on reading, mathematics, and science

School wife HSA Reading 70% proficient

1.2 Insure fidelity to "Trophies", language arts and "Everyday Math", programs

School wide HSA math 41% proficient

1.2 Generate formative assessments aligned with identified language arts and mathematics curricula

General Learner Outcomes Baseline for this year

Targeted Intervention

Align language arts and math curricula with HCPIII while building grade level student assessments.

Rationale:

Student performance data shows that although student performance in reading is above state benchmark of 44%, student performance in mathematics falls short by 7 percentage points. Language Arts and Mathematics programs that are aligned to the Hawaii Content and Performance Standards are in the initial stages of implementation. Classroom observations and collaboration meetings help to monitor fidelity to the programs. Students are not able to articulate the meaning of the standards/ benchmarks being taught and relate them to learning experiences. The use of pacing maps in not consistent from one class to another within the same grade level.

Implement classroom observations focusing on language arts, math and science standards.

Check for the posting of standards/ benchmarks that are related to the lesson and referred to during instruction

c. 100% of teachers will post standards/ benchmarks that are related to the lesson and refer to them during instruction, as measured by 10 observations/ walkthroughs

d. 75% of students will be to articulate the meaning of the standards/ benchmarks being taught and relate them to learning experiences as measured by 10 observations/ walkthroughs

TOTALS/ SUMMARY

Goal 1: Improve Student Achievement Through Standards-Based Education

Strategic Actions
Performance Targets

1.2 Develop a remedial reading and math program

School wife HSA Reading 70% proficient

1.2 Develop small group instruction in language arts and mathematics at each grade level

School wide HSA math 43% proficient

Targeted Intervention

Ensure appropriate instruction to meet student needs by restructuring grade level programs and providing a system for remediation.

Rationale:

Current heterogeneous grouping of students for language arts and mathematics results in inappropriate instruction for those students whose scores are in the "well below Proficient" categories. This type of grouping also compromises the instruction of those students whose scores are in the "meets proficiency" and meets with excellence" categories.

Address unique needs of below proficient learners and proficient learners for language arts and mathematics

a. 100% of teachers will conduct "pre" and "post" assessments to determine current ability level of each student as evidence by a class placement list for each of the receiving grade levels

1.3 Align student rewards program and character ed program with General Learner Outcomes

School wife HSA Reading 70% proficient

School wide HSA math 43% proficient

General Learner Outcomes 15% increase from baseline year

Targeted Intervention

Improve school wide character education and rewards program so that they are aligned with General Learner Outcomes

Rationale:

Our Current character education program is based on the 5 themes represented in the "Five Rs" character ed program. Student recognition is based on the components of a "Super Raider" Each program functions independently of the other. Neither relate directly to the the General Learner Outcomes.

1.4 Coordinate efforts of PCNC and PTA in identifying parent needs and obstacles to school involvement

School wide HSA math 43% proficient

General Learner Outcomes 15% increase from baseline year

Targeted Intervention

Improve school functions and procedures that promote positive parent participation, facilitate a shared interest in student achievement and create more opportunities for partnering with community members

Rationale:

Although the majority of our parents express satisfaction with the school, 50-75% of parents have attended Open House for the last three years. Less than 10% of parents have attended meetings that explain Standards-Based Instruction, Standards-Based Report Cards, student achievement on Hawaii State Assessment, Academic and financial plans, School Community Councils, and the new math program. Only one parent expressed an interest in running for the School Community Council.
