Amargosa Valley  School  Progress Update

Amargosa Valley School Progress Update #3

 School Performance Plan Implementation:  Using data from your winter interim assessment(s), provide a narrative to capture your progress in the implementation of your SPP thus far.

 

Professional Development

 Progress:      

School Principal and Instructional Coach have presented strategies from SIOP to all teachers during morning PLC and PD time. 

 School Principal, along with Teacher-in-Charge, Instructional Coach, and District Instructional Learning Team, facilitated six Professional Development (PD) sessions with the certificated staff on Hattie’s book, “Visible Learning For Teachers.”

 Barriers:

 We still could use a full-time EL teacher at our school since over 60 percent of our student body identifies as Hispanic.                 

Next Steps:

We intend to bring our new District EL Coordinator out to our school during the Fourth Quarter to share the most effective, high yield strategies to improve target language acquisition.

 Family Engagement

 Progress:

We are about to hold our second Family Engagement Meeting for Parents on March 2nd.  It will be both face-to-face and virtual.  New literacy strategies will be shared and expounded upon.  We continue to ensure that all communication to parents from information going home in backpacks to messages on our School Facebook Page all have Spanish Translations.

Barriers:

The Covid-19 Pandemic still hampers the number of parents who can attend our face-to-face meetings.                       

Next Steps:

Look for ways to use technology in a more welcoming and user friendly mode for our parents when we invite them to meet with us virtually.

 Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment

 Progress:

We made significant growth on our NWEA MAPS targets in 4 of the 8 grade levels.                      

Barriers:

One of our elementary teachers has been out on sick leave for the last two months. The entire school moved to ‘Learning at a Distance’ for two weeks just prior to the Winter Break.       

 Next Steps:  All teachers will use their NWEA MAPS Class Report and Learning Continuum report to guide and inform their learning activities for the remainder of the school year.
