Dr. James Patrick, Principal
By June, 2024, 50% of English Learners (Level 1-4) will enroll in Math 7HN or higher (rising 7th grade) or Algebra 1 or higher (rising 8th grade) for the 2024-25 school year.
Increase school communication about open enrollment to ensure all school staff (including elementary schools) communicate a shared message around open enrollment and mathematics course pathways.
Improve teachers’ implementation of the Framework for Engaging & Student-Centered Mathematics Instruction.
Increase systems of support during the school day, after school and summer to help students achieve success in mathematics.
By the end of the 23-24 school year, students who score basic or below basic on the Reading Inventory will grow two bands as indicated by the suggested growth reports in the SAM database.
Increase the frequency of formative integrated reading and writing tasks (i.e. reading responses, annotations)
Increase opportunities to explicitly teach vocabulary using evidence-based methods (i.e. semantic feature analysis, analyzing word parts, Frayer model, defining words in context, semantic mapping, etc.)
Utilize small groups to increase opportunities for students who need extensions

60% of English Learners will meet expected growth as measured by WIDA.
Develop oral academic language skills with frequent opportunities for students to talk about their reading and writing
