2016-17 LAND Trust Final Report:
In the 2016-17 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. Teachers 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 two 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. Two part-time aides further supported students struggling in mathematics.
- We purchased paper, toner, and ink to print materials for whole class, small group, and individual student instruction.
- We purchased equipment, utilizing it to collect student assessment data, teach and reinforce Core concepts, and provide additional practice, intervention, and enrichment to students.
