Lake View is very grateful to Young Ford for their generosity!!!

Young Ford in Brigham City is donating $1,500 to Lake View!!!  This is the money we “earned” because our students submitted coloring pages to the dealership this past Halloween.

Goal #1
Goal
Our goal is to improve reading achievement at our school. Specifically, to have 80% of our students at benchmark, or grade level, by the end of the school year.
Academic Areas
  • Reading
Measurements
This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.
We will use the DIBELS score to determine if students are at benchmark. DIBELS will be administered three times during the school year. The first administration will be in September. The second administration will be in January.  The third and final DIBELS assessment will be in May.  The  final assessment of the school year and will be used to determine whether we reached our goal.
Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.
Beginning of year DIBELS score for the school: 61% on benchmark

End of year DIBELS score for the school:
74.3% on benchmark
Action Plan Steps
This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.
Lake View will continue to implement small group reading intervention for grades K-3. We have been conducting these groups since February 21st of 2014 and we have seen very positive results. For the 2016-2017 school year, we plan to implement these groups from the beginning of the school year.

To follow is a summary of how these reading groups will be formed and conducted:
1. Students will be grouped according to skill need, not based on guided reading levels. Skill needs will be based on a combination of DIBELS results and the results of the PAA and QPS assessments.
2. Each student in grades 1-3 will be placed in a group which will meet daily for 45 minutes.
3. All students will be involved in a group during their grade level's assigned reading intervention time. There will be no independent work center time.
4. Aides and teachers will work together and all will lead a group of their own.
5. We will provide as many groups as our budget will allow.  We will make the groups as small as possible and therefore, improve their effectiveness.
6. Progress will be monitored and students will switch groups or progress within their group as is appropriate.
7. Assessments will be completed regularly by the adult in charge of each group so that we can monitor student progress. Each program we are using includes a built-in assessment.
8. All kindergarten students will receive a 30 minute small group instruction time. 9. The instructional day for all half-day kindergarten students will be extended by 30 minutes. This 30 minute time period is when the small group reading instruction will be provided to kindergarten students.
10. The kindergarten groups will not be considered intervention groups. Targeted instruction will be provided using a direct instruction, phonics and phonemic awareness program. ALL kindergarten students will be taken through this program. The completion of this program by ALL kindergarten students will establish a solid foundation for them and will hopefully prevent gaps in learning. Our goal is to move away from intervention on a large scale.
Here is our time line for implementation of the plan:
1. Kindergarten testing,           Aug 31-Sept 3.        The PAA test will be administered to all incoming kindergarten students.
2. 1-3 testing,          Sept 3-14 The QPS will be administered to all 1-3 grade students.
3. Teachers, aides and the literacy coach will work together to determine appropriate placement of students into groups. (Ongoing)
3. Professional Development for aides    3-Sep Training on intervention groups using BEPS and BEPAS data.  Training on other programs as determined by the literacy coach.  
4. All K-3 reading groups should begin on September 19th.
5. Grades 4-5 reading groups will begin at about this same time. They will start once students have been assessed using the BEPS.
