Mapleshade SMART Goal # 1
All students will grow at least one proficiency level (N, B, P, M) towards mastery of ELA and Math Priority Standards as measured by formative assessments and District Benchmark Assessments (ie: District Common Assessments). Priorities will be reviewed and agreed upon by grade level teams which will include, but are not limited to: standards that articulate writing texts for a variety of purposes across all content areas, spanning the genres of argument/opinion, informative, and narrative; Mathematical, Scientific and Engineering practices.
Person/persons responsible for monitoring: Collective AccountabilityBegin Date: 9/2016 Anticipated Completion Date:
- Teachers will work collaboratively with their grade level partners and literacy coach on a regular basis to identify priorities, create challenging assessments and utilize mastery to analyze the results of those assessments
- Teachers and coaches will analyze formative data and district assessment data to set priorities, develop lessons and assessments, peer observe, access professional coaching and debrief consistent with best practices for teaching in all content areas.
Ongoing 2. Teachers will implement a schedule for assessing priority standards, uploading student results into Mastery Connect and engaging in data review cycles to plan instruction, interventions and actions.
- Data review cycles will take place throughout the year to analyze data, create action plans and plan instruction for ALL students.
- Grade Level Meetings will be used as PLC Data teams utilizing Mastery Connect and formative assessment learning outcomes.
3. Teachers will agree upon formative priority standard assessments that are performance-based in nature for ELA, mathematics and science and engineering practices.
- Rubrics and assessment items will be aligned to the standard expectations outlined in the 2011 ELA and Math Frameworks as well as the 2016 STE Frameworks
- Models and exemplars of student work samples and mentor texts will be utilized
- Instructional components will be planned to ensure that students understand the rubrics
- Throughout the year assess your student’s performance with the common rubrics and assessments.
- Students will construct high quality written responses to literature across genres with the direct instruction of their teachers and the support of the literacy coach, collegial planning, and peer observations.
- Students will be formatively assessed in the mathematical, scientific and engineering practices. Standards-based writing outcomes will be analyzed using Mastery Connect.
- Standards-based ELA, Math and Science outcomes will be analyzed using Mastery Connect.
4. Action plans will be collectively developed to provide direct teaching, instructional changes, strategies and assessments of the agreed upon priorities to analyzed collaboratively during the next data review using Mastery Connect.
Education Results – (data):
- Results from Mastery Connect Assessments will show that 100% of students have improved academic proficiency by growing at least one proficiency level (N, B, P, M)
- All students will improve their academic performance on the state assessment ( ) resulting in the school meeting the ( ) Target of ( ) in ELA 2017; ( ) Target of ( ) in MATH 2017; ( ) Target of ( ) in STE 2017, as set by the state’s 6-year targets (FY12-FY17) in order to meet our PPI goal ( ) for the aggregate population of students
Mapleshade SMART Goal # 2
All students will be instructed for science and engineering, progressing toward mastery, utilizing the MA 2016 STE standards. Students will be engaged in STEM practices pertaining to questioning and defining problems, developing and using models, planning and carrying out investigations, data analysis and interpretation, using mathematical skills, explaining and designing solutions, obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information for a purpose.
Person/persons responsible for monitoring: Principal and Principal’s Advisory Committee
Begin Date: 9/2016 Anticipated Completion Date: 6/2017
- Teachers will use Carolina Science Technology Concepts and Engineering is Elementary for students to carry out investigations, develop and use models, and define and questions problems.
- Teachers will give children the opportunity to build models, designs, or experiments individually or in teams through a trial and error process that requires problem solving and critical thinking to solve a problem, devise a solution, or create a working model/design.
- Children will make observations, read research/reports, ask questions, and share scientific discoveries to learn new information or unlearn misconceptions and communicate their learning and/or form and opinion with scientific and/or mathematical evidence.
Education Results – (data):
- Students will be engaged in questioning and defining problems, developing and using models, planning and carrying out investigations, data analysis and interpretation, using mathematical skills, explaining and designing solutions, obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information for a purpose from evidence in their science classes. Formative assessment data will be gathered based on priority standard assessments of these areas.
- All students will improve their academic performance on the state assessment (MCAS) resulting in the school meeting the CPI Target of ( ) in STE 2017 as set by the state’s 6-year targets(FY12-FY17) in order to meet our PPI goal ( ) for the aggregate population of students.
