2015-16 LAND Trust Final Report:
In the 2015-16 school year, Oakridge Community Council agreed to focus on improving reading and math proficiency. To meet our goals, we completed the following:
- We collected baseline data to determine the proficiency levels of students. Teacher collaboratively discussed the results of the assessments, identifying those intensive and strategic students in need of further interventions. Teachers implemented small group and one-on-one interventions according to student needs. Through the year, we administered formative assessments to monitor student progress. Small groups and one-on-one interventions remained flexible, based on the results of the formative assessments
- Substitute teachers covered classes for three days during the school year, providing teachers with additional time to look at data and collaborate as grade-level PLCs.
- We hired one Language Arts aide to organize and train volunteers and other aides on how to implement the STAR program. These volunteers and aides assisted students struggling in reading. Three part-time aides further supported students struggling in mathematics.
- We hired a part-time technology specialist to assist teachers and students with technology and data needs.
- We purchased library books to expand our guided reading library.
- We purchased computer equipment, utilizing it to collect student assessment data, measure growth, provide interventions and instruction based on student needs, and select students to work with teachers or specialists one-on-one or in small groups.
