Wayland Heath                                   Elementary Principal

Melanie Baer                                      Reading Specialist

Melissa Hinish                                   Reading Specialist

Morgan Stoudnour                             Reading Specialist

This annual review should answer two general questions:

 

  1. Was the program implemented as intended?
  2. Were there improvements in student achievement, particularly the lowest preforming students?

 

  • Did we meet our goals from our 2016-2017 School-wide Title I Plan?
    • Goal #1
      • PSSA Scores will improve in Reading and in Math as a result of Title I school-wide program.

 

  • Team Conclusion on Goal #1:
    • PSSA scores are unavailable at the time of the review. The team feels the scores will support the success of goal number one.

 

  • Goal #2
    • All teachers will focus instruction based on test data. Instruction and student groups will be adjusted on a regular basis to reflect data collected throughout the school year.

 

  • Team Conclusion on Goal #2:
    • Data collection throughout the school year is an essential component of the Title I Program. The data collected is in the form of AIMSweb, Running Records, Sight Word Recognition, Letter Recognition, and Problem Solving Assessments. Classroom reading instruction is guided by progress monitoring using these assessments. The data was used to guide instruction, develop lessons, adjust student groupings, and develop Guided Reading groups in Kindergarten through fourth grade. The data collected throughout the school year was shared with parents during conferences. Data collection plays a significant role in the process of progress monitoring and should remain for the future.

 

  • Goal #3
    • Teachers will co-teach together in regular education classrooms and collaborate with one another to provide instruction for individual students or small groups based on assessment data.

 

  • Team Conclusion on Goal #3:
    • Regular education and Title I teachers were able to co-teach in the regular education classroom throughout the 2016-2017 school year.

 

  • Goal #4
    • A Guided Reading Program will be implemented district wide in grades K-4 for the 2016-2017 school year. Data will be collected to monitor for the effectiveness of the program.

 

  • Team Conclusion on Goal #4:
    • Guided reading instruction was provided daily for students in grades K-4 and student data was collected monthly. Student groups were adjusted based on data collected during the Guided Reading sessions. Students demonstrated growth in their reading level throughout the school year as a result of the Guided Reading Program.
