School Innovation and Improvement Plan At-a-Glance

  • 2017-2018

  • Freedom Hill Elementary School

  • Region 2

  • Scott Bloom, Principal  

End of Year SMARTR Outcome: Math

  • By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, 80% of students will use the FHES problem-solving rubric and show at least 1 level of improvement in a particular domain as determined by the grade level team, based on pre-assessment data.

  • On the Spring 2018 Math SOL test, 85% of students in grades 3-6, will achieve a passing score on the Math SOL test.

Strategies:

  1. Math Workshop

    • Teachers will implement the math workshop model in all K-6 classrooms to include Number Talks, focus lessons, guided math, learning stations, and reflection, as well as provide advanced mathematics opportunities to students.

  2. Problem Solving

    • Teachers will continue to refine and implement the FHES problem-solving rubric to help students solve single-step and multi-step problems.

  3. Intervention/Enrichment

    • The implementation of math intervention and enrichment programs.

  4. Communication and Collaboration

    • Teachers will create flexible learning structures that promote opportunities for student collaboration and communication, including blended learning.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome: Reading

  • By Spring 2018, 90% of students will engage in literacy conversations, as measured by the PoG communicator rubric.

  • On the Spring 2018 Reading SOL test, 85% of students, in grades 3-6, will achieve a passing score on the Reading SOL test.

Strategies:

  1. Literacy Workshop

    • Teachers will implement the reading workshop model in all K-6 classrooms using the Teachers College Reading and Writing Units of Study.

  2. Enrichment/Intervention

    • Teachers will implement targeted reading instruction to include intervention and enrichment programs.

  3. Communication and Collaboration

    • Teachers create flexible learning structures that promote opportunities for student collaboration and communication, including blended learning.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome: Science

  • By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, the pass rate in Science will meet or exceed 82% as measured by the Grade 5 Science SOL.

Strategies:

  1. Grade level teams will work strategically to unpack, plan, and develop assessments to support science instruction and prioritize learning goals.

  2. Teachers will integrate science content into math and literacy workshops and STEM.
