School Improvement Plan

Outcome goals for the 2017-2018 academic school year

End of Year SMARTR Outcome: Collaboration

By June 2018, 100% of all students will demonstrate increasing levels of proficiency in the skill of "collaboration" as measured by the P.O.G. collaborator rubric.

Strategy 1

All teachers will participate in yearlong professional learning focused on embedding collaboration skills into the classroom setting.

Strategy 2

Teachers will implement new learning in a "plan-do-reflect" cycle each month.  Professional Learning Teams will design direct instruction of P.O.G. skills laid out in the Collaborator Vertical Articulation document.

Strategy 3

Teams will practice and reinforce collaboration skills by designing and implementing Problem Based Learning opportunities in classrooms.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome: Positive Relationships

According to a student survey, in the Spring of 2018, survey data will show that 100% of all students will be able to identify at least one adult in the building with whom they have a positive relationship.

Strategy 1

Teachers will identify the students who did not specify having a positive relationship with an adult and create opportunities to help students build a relationship with staff members.

Strategy 2

Teachers will work to maintain and strengthen existing positive relationships through embedding "big 5" professional learning into the classroom environment (Responsive Classroom, Cooperative Learning, Outdoor Learning, Executive Functioning, and Global Classroom).

Strategy 3

We will use the already existing Eagle Aide Mentor program to intentionally pair students and teachers to foster positive relationships.
