Action Plan Steps

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

  1. Provide teachers opportunities to meet in PLC to monitor student progress in Reading and determine intervention strategies. This opportunity will be facilitated by the PLC aides who rotate in classrooms for 50 minutes twice a month.  Reading aide will work under the direction of the reading coach to support reading intervention for students K-3 who score intensive on the DIBELS assessment.
  2. Reading Center staff members will be hired to run small group reading intensive interventions.
  3. Continue and maintain the district reading program.
  4. Reading fluency and comprehension will be monitored using DIBELS and benchmark assessments. This assessment will be administered at the beginning, middle and end of the school year to diagnose our progress.
  5. Funding for substitute teachers to support teachers during benchmark assessing.
  6. All teachers will participate in Professional Development in the areas of Reading/Language Arts instruction.
  7. Technology Repairs, Replacements, and Maintenance will be done to ensure each member of the Reading Team has access to the technology and Software.

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

Teachers met in PLC weekly for 2 hours to monitor progress and plan.  Two PLC aides were hired to help facilitate these rotations and their salary was provided through trustland funds. Additionally, intervention aides were provided to assist the Reading Center staff in support small group intervention.  Substitute teachers were utilized twice in a year to provide teachers the opportunity to do benchmark testing.  Finally teachers received ongoing professional development in Reading/Language Arts instruction and books purchased (Mindset, Visible Learning, Lost at School) for each team for PD support.
