School Innovation & Improvement Plan

Outcome goals for this academic school year

School Innovation and Improvement Plan At-a-Glance

  • 2018-2019

  • Freedom Hill Elementary School

  • Region 2

  • Scott Bloom, Principal  

End of Year SMARTR Outcome: Math

  • By June 2019, 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.

  • By June 2019, 85% of grade 3-6 students will achieve pass or pass advance on the Math SOL.

  • By June 2019, 85% of grades K-2  students will achieve a passing score on our school-developed assessment.

Strategies:

  1. Math Workshop

    • Teachers will plan for and implement a math workshop model with a focus on guided math groups and rich math tasks.  

  2. Problem Solving

    • Teachers will implement the FHES problem solving rubric to help students solve single-step and multi-step problems and use data to make instructional decisions.  

  3. Assessment and Monitoring of Data             

    • Increasing meaningful use of data: Teams will identify and implement meaningful common assessments on a structured scheduled.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome: Reading

  • By spring 2019, 90% of K-2 students will be reading on or above benchmark as measured by the DRA.

  • By Spring 2019, 90% of students will engage in literacy conversations, as measured by the PoG communicator rubric.

  • On the Spring 2019 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 Teachers College Reading and Writing Units of Study in conjunction with the FCPS pacing guide in the reading workshop model in all K-6 classrooms.

  2. Enrichment/Intervention

    • Teachers will develop accountable talk structures and measure through implement the FHES communicator rubric to help students.

  3. Assessment and Monitoring of Data      

    • Increasing meaningful use of data: Teams will identify and implement meaningful common assessments on a structured scheduled.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome: Science

  • By the end of the 2018-19 school year, the adjusted pass rate in Science will meet or exceed 85% as measured by the Grade 5 Science SOL and an unadjusted pass rate of 77%.

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 technology lab and STEM lab.
