School Goals

Mission: Together with families and community, our mission is to create a student-centered comprehensive learning environment fostering personal and academic excellence.

School Learning Objective: In the 2015-16 school year, each grade level at Trevor-Wilmot School from 5K through 8th will gain a minimum of 100% of their expected grade level growth in the Informational Text goal strand of the MAP Reading assessment to reach the mean RIT equal to the CCR level of the ACT >= 22.

Baseline Data and Rationale: 

A review of fall 2015 Achieve 3000 (A3K) and Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test results show that the Informational Text goal strand is below College & Career Readiness (CCR) levels. Significant progress has been made over the last year to increase the percentage of students who are CCR. The A3K results show students who are CCR increased from 25% to 33% in one year.  

Instructional/Leadership Strategies and Support: (What methods or interventions will you use to support this objective?)

  1. All teachers will provide strong universal reading instruction with explicit teaching.
  2. Literacy coaches will provide support for universal reading instruction.
  3. Utilize Achieve 3000 with strong teacher presence for informational text in grades 3-8 and implement new strategies learned during in-service.
  4. Utilize Scholastic News for informational text in grades 5K-2 with strong teacher presence.
  5. Utilize the Informational Text unit of the Writer’s Workshop for one trimester at all grades.
  6. Implement 50% of guided reading with informational texts in grades 5K-5 and 50% of strategy groups with informational texts in grades 6-8.
  7. Implement 50% of running records with informational texts for appropriate grades.
  8. Calculate the new SLO growth target for grades 5K-8.
  9. Conduct systems check classroom walk-throughs during curriculum implementation.
  10. Conference with the literacy team (curriculum director & literacy coaches) twice per trimester for updates.

Progress to Date: According to the end of the year 2016 assessment data, we have met the School Learning Objective.
