Outcome goals for this academic school year

School Improvement & Innovation Plan At A Glance

Mantua Elementary High School | Fairfax County Public Schools | Region 5

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

All targeted students, scoring at or below the 39th percentile on the Universal Screener, will accelerate learning in reading and/or math to decrease the gap, by having at least 85% make at least one year’s progress in one year’s time, as measured for reading by the DRA2 or the QRI, and as measured for math by an end of year math assessment or the Math SOL.

Strategy 1

  • Students who are identified, through the Universal Screener and additional diagnostic evaluations, as struggling with reading will receive specific reading interventions, with ongoing monitoring, to ensure the effectiveness of employed strategies.

Strategy 2

  • Students who are identified, through the Universal Screener and additional diagnostic evaluations, as struggling with Math will receive math interventions, with ongoing monitoring, to ensure effectiveness of employed strategies.

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Utilizing data from ongoing formative assessments, all teachers will understand each student’s learning profile by name and need, including the opportunities for both curricular remediation or extension, as measured through CLT data discussions 5 times per year.

Strategy 1

  • Utilizing common formative assessments, teachers will analyze data to understand areas of strengths and/or weakness for each newly targeted student reflecting their individual learning profiles.

Strategy 2

  • During CLT, teachers will collaborate to create a unique focus for instruction for newly targeted students based on assessment data.

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

All students 2nd through 6th grade across all “identities” will report healthy social/emotional skills and positive relationships with peers and adults within their classroom, as measured by a survey based on the Core Virtues expressed by Dr. Ernest Boyer, which will be administered twice during the school year, in the fall and in the spring.

Strategy 1

  • Utilizing student survey results, teachers will analyze data to understand student’s perceptions of the classroom climes as it relates to the Core Virtues.

Strategy 2

  • Teachers will model the vocabulary and behaviors of the Core Virtues through classroom meetings, individual conversations with students, and classroom discussions.
