Final Report for 2018-2019
Our reading interventionists worked with students in small groups and one on one in specific reading skills. They also helped train paraprofessionals to provide interventions for students in reading. The number of students proficient on DIBELs increased from last year in kindergarten, 2nd, and 3rd grades. Our 5th grade language arts RISE scores stayed the same as SAGE scores last year. 3rd and 4th grade scores dipped lower than the year before.
Our certified art teacher worked with our 4th and 5th grade teachers to collaborate on the science core so she could incorporate it into her art classes. We did not see an increase in proficiency scores on the science RISE test for 4th and 5th grade students this year.
We had a surplus of carry over funds from the previous year. We used those funds to purchase technology for the teachers to help with implementing the district adopted reading program.
Trust Land Use for 2019-2020
We will retain 2 highly qualified reading interventionists to target students needing specific help with literacy in order to increase our language arts assessment scores by 10% at the end of the year. We will also provide all students with weekly art lessons taught by a certified art teacher. Our 4th and 5th grade students will have lessons that combine the art and science curriculum to reinforce science concepts being taught in the general education classroom. This will help raise students’ science assessment scores by 10% at the end of the year.
