Required components of the School Improvement Plan for Charter Schools

1. Mission Statement:

It is our mission here at Somerset Preparatory North Lauderdale, to empower all students to reach their maximum potential and render them productive citizens in our global society. We will strive to show compassion to all individuals, and maintain positive energy in order to provide a learning environment where success is the only option.


2. Academic Data:

Our calculations showed that the school’s total scores decreased during 2014 by 117 points when compared to 2013 when the school earned a “C” grade. 2013-2014 school year’s decrease placed the school at a “D” grade. The greatest contributors to the decrease were Math decreasing 20 points and Reading decreasing 33 points. Science decreased 18 points while Writing decreased 18 points. It is important to mention that there is a decreasing trend over the last two years in learning gains for Reading in both regular gains and the lowest 25% learning gains. Reading lowest 25% learning gains lost 20 points during the last two years while Reading regular gains also lost 20 points over the last two years (10 points per year). Math showed decreases on learning gains in the last year only for both regular gains and the lowest 25% learning gains. Math learning gains in the lowest 25% decreased by 1 point when compared to 2013, while the math regular learning gains showed a decrease of 6 points. This year’s school grade and points have not been released. Since only provisional data is available, plans will be reevaluated and modified once the final data is released.

The results are shown on the following tables:

5. Student Performance Deficiency Plan

Provide a detailed plan for addressing each identified deficiency in student performance, including specific actions, person responsible, resources needed and timeline:

Reading

To meet the needs of our K-8th students who scored below proficiency at a levels 1 and 2 on the Reading FCAT/FSA, the Journey’s curriculum is being utilized to provide students with remediation in four areas of reading acquisition ; phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. This curriculum is aligned with the new Florida Standards and is an approved curriculum aligned with Broward County’s K-12 Reading Plan. For grades 3-8 additional curriculums were purchased to assist with improving phonics, grammar and vocabulary skills. Write Bright will allow students in grades K-5 to master the Conventions of Standard English critical for effective writing and success on all assessments. Through the use of these programs, students will enhance their phonics, vocabulary, composition, and grammar skills to increase reading fluency and writing ability, and thus raise student achievement. The district’s approved curriculum Science Fusion is used for Science, and Go Math, Mathletics, and Mountain Math are used for Mathematics.

The middle school, grades 6th-8th, also uses the district’s approved Collections curriculum for Language Arts (ELA), along with the writing component included in the software program. The middle school also uses the Inside curriculum published by National Geographic as a Reading primary resource for all students and Rewards curriculum to address the phonics component, along with previously purchased Book Jams as a supplemental resource. MyOn electronical library has also been purchased for all students to use for reading. Daily bell ringers and exit slips will be used in all core subject areas in order to review and gauge skill acquisition for differentiated instruction. To help meet the needs of all students, technology programs have also been incorporated into the daily schedule. All grades will use Reading Plus. Students will use these programs during the allotted technology time as well as in their classroom. Resource teachers were hired to assist with pulling small groups. These groups were formed based on the 2014 FCAT and FAIR data. Once 2015 FSA data is released, the groups will be reformatted to meet student needs. The borderline students were the students that were just below the level of proficiency and these will be targeted during our free after school tutoring that will begin in October, continuing on until April. This program will target those students who scored below proficiency. In addition, pull-out and push-in sessions will begin in the month of October, continuing on until April. The program’s objective is targeted to those students who need intensive reading assistance in a small ratio, 6 to 1, daily focusing on their specific areas of concern.

To assist with the increase demands of technology, each Reading and Math classrooms have increase the number of student computers for at least 10 to 12 computers which will be used for Reading Eggs (K-2), Reading Plus (3-5), Mathletics (K—8), USA Test Prep for EOCs, and the online components of Go Math, Mathletics, Khan Academy, Mountain Math, Collections and Science Fusion. Students will use these technology programs during the allotted time in classroom as well as in their technology class times.
Reading Action Plan applies to all grade levels including all subgroups:

Although 2015 FSA provisional data has been released, grouping and interventions have been formatted to meet student needs according to 3 year data. Accordingly, the following action plan has been set in place:

1. Students who scored levels 1 and 2 on the Reading 2014 FCAT, including all subgroups, will receive intensive reading daily, which will focus on the areas of decoding and/or text reading comprehension.

2. Intensive Reading pull-out and push-in sessions will commence October 2015 and will continue through April 2016 which consists of small group skill-focused remediation and instruction during the reading block and supplemental to the reading block time, provided by an interventionist. Our pull-outs occur during our students’ electives; the groups are based on the most current assessment data including FAIR and Stop, Drop, and Assess data, and are flexible to target particular deficiencies.

3. All core subject area teachers will use content based materials (i.e. content specific leveled readers) with reading groups in order to practice informational text and research skills.

4. According to the FCAT 2.0 Reading 2014, 3rd grade students were weakest in the Reading Application strand. Therefore, teachers will be implementing summary frames and other summarization strategies in order for students to learn how to deconstruct meaning from a text and then rephrase the reading into their own words.
