During individual data chats in early 2017 the administrative team met with teachers to discuss student data and needs relating to current SPP goals. Teacher feedback and analysis of small group pre/post lessons and station plans allowed the team to determine a need to continue with our focus areas but go deeper. Grade levels were given the task to make notes on changes and additions to current SPP goals and teacher actions. A leadership team with a representative from each grade level met on May 12th, 2017 to update the SPP including grade level notes and revisions. The administrative team met May 16th, 2017 to make small adjustments and discuss sharing the draft with all teachers during post planning to gather more input during the formative stages of SPP revision and development. Administrators and instructional coaches facilitated a collaborative activity (Silent Discussion) to allow grade levels to delve into ELA Focus 1 & 2, Math Focus 1, and Science during Post-Planning May 31st,

4 School Profile Located in the Florida Panhandle, Shalimar Elementary School serves approximately 660 students from the Shalimar and Fort Walton Beach areas. Initially SACS accredited in 1966, we have been honored to serve the communities students, families, and stakeholders. Shalimar Elementary works together: the faculty, staff, volunteers, and stakeholders have established rigorous academic standards for our students, and we are committed to providing flexible, high quality, differentiated instruction for all students. Shalimar is proud to serve a diverse community of learners. It has earned an A rating, as measured by the State of Florida grade calulation method, for 15 years; earning a B this past school year. One hundred percent of Shalimar s instructional staff are highly qualified. Shalimar recently had a high number of retirees and has brought on new energetic young teachers that have brought fresh ideas and enthusiasm to Shaliamr. Shalimar' students are served by KG (5 classes), 1st (6 Classes), 2nd (5 Classes), 3rd (7 Classes), 4th (6 classes) and 5th (5classe. We have 3 ESE units: two 3rd Grade EBD Units and 1 PreKD unit. Our classrooms are both departmentalized and levelized to better serve our students. Our Title 1 support team consists of 3 classroom assistants and 2 full time teachers to serve students in a remedial capacity throughout the year. We also benefit from an Instructional Coach and a Math Coach who are available to model lessons, work hand in hand with both veteran and new teachers, and help teachers delve deeper into the Florida Standards for maximal instrucation. A full time Guidance Counselor, ESE teacher, SLP are also on staff to assist students and teachers. Shalimar offers many specials to students: Physical Education (to include a state and national ranked archery team), a full music program, a talented and gifted program hosted by the local Master Gardeners Associaton, Safety Patrols, ELL program, a leadership team, and a hands on Science Lab. Shalimar is proud of its family of engaged learners and stakeholders who have been committed to our goal of providing a safe learning environment to all. 3

5 Community and Parent Awareness 4

6 Community and Parent Awareness What does the data tell you regarding the positive aspects of your school? The community and parent awareness survey had a total of 42 responses. Strengths recognized by parents were in regard to student safety, feeling a part of the school and the physical apperarnce of the school. A primary focus at Shalimar is for students to be safe, responsible and respectful. We feel we work very closely with parents to instill a feeling of satisfaction in those 3 areas. 90% of parents felt their school maintained a safe envirionment. Teachers and staff at Shalimar work towards students feeling safe not just in a physical sense, but safe within a learning environment: safe to make mistakes, to try again, and to challenge themselves. What does the data tell you regarding the opportunities for improvement in your school? Two weaker areas noted in the above survey were in the areas of guidance and the amount of time spent on homework. The guidance counselor is attending MTSS meetings and reaching out to parents in more positive ways by sponsoring anitbullying events and programs such as Safe Kids and Change for Children. We will also be adding a piece from the counselor in our newsletters. The parent concern about homework is being improved by providing teachers with a better understanding and training about research based homework practices within their department meetings, grade level meetings and faculty meetings. Homework will be aligned with spiraling of standards. Provide a description of the various forms of communication to your community and parents.

12 School Action Plan ELA (Reading): Assessment Data Analysis What does the analysis of your school data tell you about your school s academic strengths? K-2: In the past 2nd grade has had a significant drop in proficiency however, this year they had a 10% increase in proficiency from the previous year. Both Literature and Information proficiency scores increased from the 2016 school year and were above our district average. Kindergarten proficiency has continued to increased and is up from 80% to 85% this year. Cohort groups from Kindergarten to first grade show significant gains as well, however, the overall proficiency for 1st grade fell by 3%. Kindergarten has reduced the number of students scoring level 1 on DEA over the past 3 years down to only 4 students, and 1st grade has had no level 1s for the past 3 years. Kindergarten has continued to increase proficiency in Non-fiction this year with an increase in Literature as well. and were above our district average. 1st grade has also increased proficiency in Non-fiction over the past 3 years and were even above the district average last year. 3-5: Our cohort groups in 3rd, 4th, and 5th are increasingly more proficient each year with an average increase of 3 percentage points. However, each grade level is still scoring below our district average. In addition, the 5th grade Free and Reduced lunch population scored 57% proficient which is 6% above the district average. 5th grade writing scores continue to be above our district writing average. The area of Craft & Structure has increased from last year in 4th and 5th grade but is still below our district average. What does the analysis tell you about your school s opportunities to improve? K-2: Cohort groups are also showing decreased proficiency from 1st grade to 2nd grade. (18% which has reduced the deficit by 3%) Overall cohort groups from 1st to 2nd grade drop across the board. Language proficiency in 1st and 2nd grade is below the district average. 3-5: 5th graders were 3 points below our district average in learning gains this year, dropping 8 points from The number of students scoring level 5 are consistently below district averages. The number of students scoring level 4 in 4th and 5th grade is dropping while the number scoring 5 is also dropping. We need to work on enriching our higher achieving students. The number of students scoring level 2 has significantly increased in 4th grade, while the number of level 1s in 3rd and 4th is above our district average. We still need to focus intently on moving our level 2s to proficiency and remediating our level 1s. Integration of Knowledge and Ideas continues to be the lowest strand across the board. Key Ideas and Details also dropped in 3rd through 5th grade. 4th grade writing has dropped each year and the gap from our district average has increased. Differentiating small group instruction and mini-lessons when applicable will help to target our students and ensure we are moving them toward or beyond proficiency for each standard. 11

13 Central Focus: ELA Focus 1 School Action Plan ELA: Strategies & Programs to Support the Objectives Implementation of the Balanced Literacy Model (Whole Group, Teacher-led Small Group Instruction, and Standards-based, Differentiated Stations with Accountability). A focus will be placed on: Utilizing Text Dependent Questions (TDQs) at varying DOKs and Phases within Everyday Instructional Reads, which lead to a rigorous culminating task o TDQ Flip Chart Achievement Level Descriptors (ALDs, Gr. 3-5) and Learning Progressions (Gr. 1 and 2) Utilize data to inform instruction (MAP, iready, etc.) Emphasizing complex text while using multiple sources o Resources: Common Lit, NewsELA, Achieve 3000, Read Works, Time for Kids, Story Works, etc. Text markings and annotations derived from the TDQs Purposeful student talk derived from the TDQs Purposeful Read Aloud 12

14 Shalimar s Focus Targeted School-based Focus: Implementation of Balanced Literacy Model (Teacher-led Small Group Instruction, Standards-based, Differentiated Stations with Accountability).

This is where an EIR assists in the writing process o How are we addressing writing an introduction? o How are we addressing writing a conclusion? o How are we addressing citing relevant evidence? (EIR) o o How are we addressing elaboration? (EIR) How are we addressing transitions? o How are we addressing content specific vocabulary? 18

20 Shalimar s Focus: Targeted School-based Focus: Writing: Teaching how Analysis and Synthesis lead to Elaboration *Increase student knowledge and use of the Rubrics with a focus on the Evidence and Elaboration portion *Differentiated writing instruction based on student needs identified through the Rubrics with an emphasis on Analysis and Synthesis (Evidence and Elaboration) -Writing Conferences, Small Group, Stations, etc. *Writing the Essay: Teaching students to Read like Writers and Write like Readers with a focus on the following: -How are we addressing purposeful text marking and annotations specific to the prompt? (TDQ) -How are we addressing citing relevant evidence? (EIR) -How are we addressing elaboration? (EIR) Targeted School-based Professional Development: 1. Calibration training will be offered to new teachers or teachers new to a grade level via release time with Literacy Coach or grade level peer after first Cold Write. Grade level calibration will be offered upon the release of the K-5 OCSD Sampler Papers created by the Writing Working Groups. Calibration of papers will lead to discussions of trends/needs for classroom instruction and result in planning for mini-lessons or teaching stratgies to meet those needs. (Grade Level Meeting or 1/2 day Release time). 2. Teachers who attend grade level specific trainings offered on My Learning Plan and will share with the grade level during Tuesday Tips or Grade Level Meetings. 3. Based on data from the SES Needs Assessment, differentiated writing professional development will be offered by the ELA Instructional Coach and/or Lead Teachers to support implementation of the school writing plan. (Tuesday Tips, Differentiated Coaching, Calibration Trainings, Optional trainings based on Grade level/band needs each semester) 4. Writing Meetings will be held once a Quarter with 4th and 5th grade ELA teachers, Instructional Coach, and Administration to address progress, success, and challenges in Analysis and Synthesis (Evidence and Elaboration). 5.

21 Shalimar Elementary School Academic Writing Plan Unpacking the Prompt Instruction: All teachers will use a common process to unpack the prompt: BUCL (Buckle) 1. Box Mode (opinion, informational) 2. Underline Purpose and Audience, when applicable Note: If no audience is specified in the prompt, it is understood the audience is a knowledgeable person 3. Circle Topic 4. List any academic/domain specific words if present (1-5 only) Teacher models the process for unpacking the prompt using the FSA Writing Sampler Sets and/or Okaloosa Writing Exemplars (1-5) and student samples (K) Student Outcomes: Students will practice unpacking the prompt. (With scaffolding and support in K) Students will write a possible prompt for a given mode of writing. Student prompts will be used as a tool for instruction (i.e., students unpack each other s prompts). (Writing will be collaborative during a shared writing experience in K/1 first semester) This could be a literacy station after the gradual release model has been used to introduce the task. Note: A student should later practice coding response written to prompts use the coding process above, in order to determine that they have addressed all aspects of the prompt. Purposeful Text Marking Specific to Prompt (K-5)/ Note Taking Specific to Prompt (3-5) Instruction: Teacher will use FSA Writing Sampler Sets (3-5) Okaloosa Writing Exemplars (K-5) to model how unpacking the prompt determines purposeful text marking. (Purposeful text marking will be modeled and guided in K/1.) (Could later be placed in a literacy station.) Kindergarten Example: Write and tell how Pilgrims lived long ago. Possible Purposeful Text Marking: L= Long Ago 20

22 Example: Text marking through shared/interactive writing First/Second Example: Ernest Shackleton was an explorer. He sailed on a ship called the Endurance. Write an informative essay explaining why the voyage of the Endurance was unforgettable. Use information from the passage in your essay. Possible Purposeful Text Marking: U= Unforgettable Third-Fifth Example: Write an informative essay to present to your class about the problem of light pollution in the United States today. Use information from the passages in your essay. Possible Purposeful Text Marking: P= Problem, S= Solution Student Outcomes: Students will use unpacked prompts (from previous section) to determine possible purposeful text marking. Using Student Talk, students will justify their purposeful text marking and how it relates to the prompt. Planning for the Essay Instruction: Teacher will provide an overview of the goals for the Purpose, Focus, and Organization (PFO) category of the FSA-like Writing Rubrics(4-5) (opinion, informational) through the use of developmentally appropriate language and by modeling the degrees of each score point during a Shared/ or Interactive writing: Teacher and students will unpack the Purpose, Focus, and Organization (PFO) category of the FSA-like(1-3)/FSA Writing Rubrics(4-5) (opinion, informational) by conducting an Everyday Instructional Read of each score point (1 st -2 nd grade will discuss success criteria for PFO.): Highlight key terms in each section. (2-5) The teacher will discuss key elements in each section. (Kdg/1st) As a class, define and analyze each highlighted key term (2-5) 3-5 Example: fully sustained - What does this mean? 21

23 Kindergarten/1 st /2 nd Example: When we write we need to organize our thoughts so they make sense to the reader from the beginning to the end Looking at this model, how can we order these thoughts to make sense to the reader? Does the order matter? Thinking aloud and modeling. Identify and discuss the elements (success criteria) of each score point 1-5 Example: How is a 3 in PFO different from a 4 in PFO? The teacher will identify, discuss and model the elements of each score point (Kdg) Kindergarten Example: How can we change this model so it makes more sense to the reader? (Change the order, add an item, remove an item.) third Fifth will create anchor chart of text structures (Compare/Contrast, Problem/Solution, How/Why, Sequence, etc.) with appropriate graphic organizer. Kindergarten will create anchor chart of the different ways the author and illustrator of a text present the ideas or information in a text. First grade will use a planning sheet/graphic organizer for each genre of writing. Teachers will guide students to use this organizer to plan before writing. Some 2 nd grade teachers model using a graphic organizer for each genre of writing. Teacher will create Writing tasks requiring students to: Unpack a prompt (1-5) Create a purposeful text marking pertaining to the prompt Analyze a text to determine text structure (1-5) Explain how the author and illustrator present the ideas or information from the text (Kindergarten) Complete appropriate graphic organizer (corresponding to mode of writing 1-2) (corresponding to text structure in 3-5) Kindergarten/1 st / 2 nd grade teacher and students will utilize shared and interactive writing to collaboratively plan for writing. (May use Word banks, Graphic Organizer, and other writing aids to assist in planning.) Student Outcomes: Students will list attributes (success criteria) to describe each score point of the FSA-like (1-3)/FSA Writing Rubrics (4-5) for PFO. Students will be able to describe the key elements of quality writing that pertain to PFO Category in the FSA-like Writing Rubric. First-Fifth Grade students will complete tasks requiring the unpacking of a prompt, the creation of purposeful text marking, and effectively planning to respond in writing. Kindergarten students will complete Everyday Instructional Reading tasks. 22

24 Kindergarten students will routinely plan for writing activities using the chosen organization methods modeled in class. Scaffolding Instruction to Build from One Source to Multiple Sources (Using Information from Both Text and Illustrations) Instruction: First Fifth Grade teacher will provide explicit instruction on why multiple sources might be required to respond to a given prompt. Example: At least two texts are typically needed for a compare/contrast. Kindergarten Teacher will provide explicit instruction on the relationship between illustrations and the story in which they appear and how the text and illustrations work together to convey meaning.

50 School Action Plan Math: Assessment Data Analysis What does the analysis of your school data tell you about your school s academic strengths? K-2: Overall proficiencies for K-2 grades show at or above the district average. The first grade class, now second grade, shows 7 points above the district average for level 4-5 students. First grade also shows scores above the district average in all math domain areas. Additionally, the ESE sub group scored well above the district average in all three grades K : The ESE subgroup in 4th grade scored 17 points above the district average for proficiency. In 4th grade the percentage of learning gains for both level 4 and 5 scores are bove the district average. Both the ESE and ELL sub groups also show learning gain percentages well above the district average. What does the analysis tell you about your school s opportunities to improve? K-2: In the primary grades, percentages of level 4-5 students are lower than the district average for kindergarten and second grade. Kindergarten shows a three year history of scoring below the district average for the Numbers in Base Ten domain. Second grade shows all of the math domain areas below the distrcit average in proficiency. Last school year's data indicates there is an 18% gap between female and male profeciency for 2nd grade. This same 2nd grade cohort group had a 30% gap between black and white students. 3-5: All cohorts made significant drops in both overall proficiency and learning gains. All math domain areas in all three grades 3-5 showed proficiency percentages below the district average. Specifically 5th grade had a dramatic drop in both proficiency and gains. 49
