ELA All Students 67% 69% 71%
ELA SED 67% 69% 71%
ELA Disabilities 64% 66% 68%
ELA Hispanic 56% 58% 60%
Math All students 47% 49% 51%
Math SED 40% 42% 44%
Math Disabilities 47% 49% 51%
Math Hispanic 62% 64% 66%
As measured by Bridges Common Assessments in Reading and Writing, by June 2019, at least 71% of all K-8 students will be meeting or exceeding grade level. In Math, at least 51% of students will be meeting or exceeding grade level by June 2019.
As measured on Raz Kids, student who attend school level intervention program for ELA or Math will show improvement of 20% between the pre and post-test.
By Spring of 2019 all identified English Language (EL) students will increase language skills by 1 level in 2 out 4 categories
1.3 Collect student performance on Common Assessments by reporting periods throughout the year; analyze data using a PLC model; and track student progress with electronic “data walls.”
1.4 Utilize Student Study Team (SST) to provide strategies to address student needs in the classroom and to schedule additional support by Intervention staff.
1.5 Provide 8 hours of Professional Development in ELD/SDAIE Methods, Scaffolding, and Universal Design to promote in-classroom Tier 1 differentiation to address student needs including the needs of English learners.
1.6 Increase school level intervention services for Math, ELA and ELD by 40% including push-in and pullout intervention with RTI Teacher and Resource Teacher.
1.7. Form a cross-grade level math committee that meets monthly to research and apply new practices for teaching and learning math that will increase engagement and achievement for all students.
1.8 Coordinate and provide supplemental intervention services: Social Emotional Services Specialist, academic and EL intervention teacher(s), counseling and social skills services, occupational therapy, speech and language and resource specialist.
1.8 Professional development logs will be maintained to include formal training, informal faculty meeting in service, independent professional development (on-line research) and focused collaboration time with colleagues – both scheduled and unscheduled, with a goal of 50 hours per teacher per year.
1.9 Provide frequent student progress information to parents using electronic data systems and other communication methods. Implement consistent methods for weekly communication about student progress across grade levels.
Summary of Professional Development:, Data analysis, instructional differentiation, UDL, ELD/SDAIE, intervention and student progress monitoring, CCSS Aligned Math Strategies, referral process for services.
GOAL 2: TRAIN AND SUPPORT TEACHERS TO IMPLEMENT INSTRUCTION ALIGNED TO CALIFORNIA COMMON CORE STANDARDS (CCCS), NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS (NGSS), AND 21ST CENTURY LEARNING/TECHNOLOGY OUTCOMES.
100% of Bridges classroom teachers will receive professional development on California Common Core Standards, Mathematical Practices as defined in CCSS’s, Next Generation Science Standards and related CAASPP assessment strategies, as evidenced by professional development logs and faculty meeting agendas
Bridges classroom teachers in grades 3-8 will indicate on a year-end survey a 20% increase in implementation of digital literacy standards.
2.1 Continue to refine year-long curriculum maps for ELA, math and science that include digital literacy standards and that are in alignment with CCSS and NGSS.
2.2 Provide 3 hours of professional development on integrating K-8 digital literacy/technology standards and 21st century skills expectations for each grade level.
2.3 Implement at least two project-based learning units per grade level that are interdisciplinary and aligned with 21st century learning. Teachers will utilize school-wide rubrics to assess student projects/presentations and 21st century skills.
2.4 Teachers will input student achievement data from 21st century rubrics into data tracking system for analysis in PLC groups.
2.4 Monitor implementation of STEMScopes curriculum to ensure that all science units are inquiry-based across all grade levels.
2.5. Analyze data from benchmark assessments three times annually in grade level teams in order to adjust instructional practices and improve student learning.
2.6. Teachers will make explicit to students their Common Core and NGSS aligned learning objectives, and students will be able to state the objective in 2 out of 4 instances when asked by observer during informal classroom observation.
Summary of Professional development: Common Core Standards, Digital Literacy, NGSS and assessments, project-based and inquiry-based learning, STEMScopes, identification/tracking of 21st Century skills and grade level technology competencies for students, learning objectives.
GOAL 3: PROVIDE AN EFFECTIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR LEARNING BASED ON WHOLE CHILD TENENTS (healthy, safe, engaged, supported, challenged) AND THE BRIDGES CHARTER “EXPECTED SCHOOLWIDE LEARNING RESULTS” (academic standards mastery, oral/written expression, critical thinking/reasoning, creativity, personal responsibility, social-emotional growth)
85% of students (grades K- 8) will set and evaluate their own learning and personal growth goals each reporting period.
Increase student attendance. ADA of Bridges’ classroom-based programs will increase by .3% over prior year from ____ to ____% k-5 and from ___% to ___% at grades 6-8.
Suspension/expulsion rates will be less than 3% of enrollment annually.
Parent satisfaction survey will indicate that at least 70% of respondents “agree” and “strongly agree” that Bridges is effective in the following areas:
2017-2018 Results – N= 87:
82% student instruction, engagement, support, and challenge with learning
76% social-emotional learning and conflict resolution and skill development
