School Improvement Plan

Webster Elementary

School Improvement Plan | 2017-18

For the 2017-18 school year, our community at Webster Elementary is dedicated to working together toward our school-wide goals, focused on increasing the academic achievement of all students and ensuring that our school is a great place for all learners.

This year we are striving to achieve the following goals:
Goal 1:
The percentage of African American students in Math will meet or exceed their expected growth

goal from 38% to 58% by Winter 2018 based on the FAST Math assessment.

Goal 2: Students will increase reading proficiency from 61% to 75% on FAST reading assessment by 2019.

Goal 3: Refining and further developing our MTSS process (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support), creating schedules, team goal setting, and identifying resources. Embed the MTSS process with our Literacy Curriculum adoption and PLC/Data work.

Goal 4: Student behavior referrals will decrease 10% by end of January 2018 from where we were last year and 10% less (or more) for the second half of the school-year (as measured in June).

In order to reach these goals, we'll be using the following strategies:

DreamBox Implementation

Classroom teachers will utilize DreamBox software for a minimum of 60 min/week with all students. Teachers and support staff will monitor the data and use the settings in the software to target instruction and small group work to provide further differentiated instruction for students.

Literacy Curriculum Development

Teachers fully implement newly adopted literacy curriculum. Teaches utilize components of whole group and small group instruction. Support staff (Special Education, English Language Learner, and intervention) collaborate with classroom teachers to provide intentional support for students at high risk.

MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Support) Implementation Improvement

Further implementation of our Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS).

Second Step & Zones of Regulation Curriculum Integration

Classroom teachers will work with the School Social Worker to develop and refine a schedule for incorporating both curricula into one cohesive content area for implementation in all classes. Observers, Behavior Dean, and School Social Worker will monitor implementation through check-ins and observations.

ENVoY

Webster staff will use ENVoY non-verbal classroom management techniques in classroom and school wide settings. Staff will complete an ENVoY workshop this fall and continue training throughout the year with external and internal coaching and peer support.
