    3. Review of Items for SPSA Goal 1

      1. Tutoring update--3 teachers, focus on 5th and 6th grade Reading and Math as well as 2nd and 3rd grade math

        1. S. Rossall introduced the new structure of tutoring. The focus of the tutoring will be to maintain a low teacher-student ratio to increases effectiveness. The idea would be to focus on foundational skills for teacher selected students that could then move out of the program.

        2. B. Tallosi raised the issue of defining small groups and the commonalities between a second and third-grade student. J. Briggs clarified that the reteach model that we are already implementing in PLCs would hopefully reach most of the students, leaving tutoring for those that are not reached by the reteach.

        3. B. Tallosi raised the question on the effectiveness of the tutoring model, which J. Briggs added that it is a community request.

        4. K. Koonce raised the idea of brainstorming in a staff meeting about a new way to restructure the tutoring system to raise its effectiveness. A. Contreras introduced the idea of making it part of the PLC model of reteach and having those interventions during the tutoring time.

        5. B. Tallosi proposed structuring the program to make it standard specific to address individual standards that are lacking. K. Koonce and A. Steinacher added that perhaps limiting it by time would gain more teacher buy-in (e.g. 6 Wednesdays, 2 months).

        6. S. Rossall voiced the concern about reaching groups of kids across all grade levels that are not reading at grade level.

        7. A. Contreras proposed making it a homework lab, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday for any grade level that needs help with assignments.

        8. B. Tallosi proposed making it focused on Reading and then collecting data on the students who attend and those that we wanted to attend to demonstrate effectiveness.

      2. Addition of language to SPSA Goal 1 Item 3 A to include intervention supports and read staff/students; $4000 for tutoring (3 teachers, small intensive support for reading and ELA); addition of 1 hour of intervention aide time to work with students including learning lab for middle school; No additional money allocated

        1. S. Rossall proposed to add the language to include students and intervention supports, rather than just teachers. No additional money would be needed, just changes to the language.

      3. Thinking maps training day--add $6000 to Goal 1 Action 1 Item d

      4. SPSA Goal 1 Action item 3a--purchasing Kindergarten reading intervention materials

      5. SPSA Goal 1 Action item 3--addition of item h “students and teachers will have access to grade level appropriate technology to increase overall academic achievement for all students”;  addition of $2000 for purchasing 10 devices; will allow 1 to 1 in 4th grade; reallocate goal 1 item 3a to be $11,500; add $1000 to this goal for batteries and screen repair on broken devices to allow access for students

      2. Intervention Aide - $11,000 (addition of 1 hour a day)

      3. 20 Chromebooks ($4,200) addition of 10 Chromebooks

      4. K/1 Scholastic News Sub - $1035

      5. Tutoring - 5 teachers - Started Tuesday

    2. Dashboard data review

      1. S. Rossall shared the dashboard data based on last year’s results. Accessible through https://caschooldashboard.org/reports/19651020110098/2018

      2. Great increase was seen in ELA and if growth maintains, we will be at the state average by next year.

        1. Anaverde was one of few schools who have done relatively well with our students with disabilities. We are in not in the red (no significant subgroups in the red)

      3. In Math, a testing error occurred with many 5-6th graders not finishing the test (due to testing irregularity). Even so, we maintained our our scores from the the previous year. We expect to see great improvement here in this year and have planned ample make up days to ensure that all will finish this year.

        1. No students in the red.

        2. Our African American subgroup scored in the yellow which is great improvement.

      4. Suspension rate and chronic absenteeism also was reported and can be accessed through the link.

        1. 9.9% chronically absent  - Orange level. (New law dictates that anyone that misses 20 days or more (10% of the year) for any reason, even excused, classifies as chronically absent.) This is in line with the state average.

        2. No students in the red. Our African American students were in the green for chronic absenteeism when most neighboring schools have this subgroup in the orange.

        3. Suspension rates - 3.9% suspended at least once. (Number is a comparison of students who were suspended against those who weren’t. Multiple suspension only count once.) Down by 0.9%. About 1% away from our goal of 2% decrease.

      5. 73% of our English Learners are in levels 3 or above. (27.8% are in level 4)

        1. Must be level 4 and in the green as compared to average scores from general education students. (District dictated)

        2. Once new comparisons from the district come out, that will be communicated to EL parents to help them move towards being reclassified.

      6. Area of strength was ELA and work done with students with disabilities. (Greatest increase in ELA in the district and 2nd highest for Math in the district see in this subgroup)

    3. Professional Development update

      1. RTI at Work PLC Conference in Pasadena, April 30th-May 2nd.

        1. Registration $689 each

        2. 11 teachers going - one representative from every grade level (Skinner, Smith, Koonce, Tallosi, Weber, Crowell, Hilliard, Zuaro, Wertman, Sarkisyan-Patel, Briggs)

      2. Southern California Kinder Conference in Pasadena, March 1st and 2nd

        1. Registration $264 each.

        2. All four TK/K teachers attending. (Starr, Smith, Khalifa, Henderson)

 

  1. NEW BUSINESS

    1. Review of Items for SPSA Goal 1

      1. Tutoring update

        1. 5 teachers and began this week. 9 weeks for a total of 45 students.

      2. Professional development update

        1. PLC Conference

        2. Southern California Kindergarten Conference

        3. Use of funds for 1 PD day in July (Title 1 Funds)

        4. Two separate Thinking Maps Training for about 20 teachers were completed over winter break (December 15th and January 4th)

          1. Those who didn’t attend the full day training had the opportunity to come to flash trainings during the contractual 90 minute staff meeting

          2. Some teachers had previously been trained.

      3. Discussion of reading intervention programs shared by A. Contreras

        1. Data was shared of students receiving intervention as compared to norms from those not getting intervention. (1st-3rd grade data)

        2. Interventions were given to those students that are chronically absent helping to keep them on track with the students not receiving intervention.

        3. Especially in the 3rd grade group, the fact that those receiving intervention were scored on a third grade passage is not fully fair as they are not yet reading on level, so the growth is harder to see

        4. A. Contreras encouraged that we are cognisant of where we place our money to make sure that we are using our funds for areas with the highest impact.

        5. T. Hamberlin shared SBAC data that we are lowest in the Reading range.

        6. S. Rossall shared that Kindergarten team is leveling their students all day long so that they get instruction based on their levels currently. (Targeted instruction)

          1. Pilot for the district

          2. Therefore, they feel that Kikos Learning time is no longer a good use of funds. The money would rather be spent on one more hour of the intervention aid. As this is a same line item, no vote was needed.

      4. Addition of intervention time and open lab during lunch and after school

        1. In addition, the computer lab will be open 1 hour each day at lunch (for 4-8th) and one hour after school Tuesday-Thursday for (5th-8th).

          1. Letter going home to parents next week

      5. T. Hamberlin brought a program to S. Rossall named Renaissance (myOn) from the company that used to do AR. K. Koonce recognized that Reading Assistant already could do some of those things - Already a license for every student in the district.

        1. Reading Assistant is the sister program to Fast ForWord. Library of books given to the students based on reading level or Lexile level. Process oriented -  Listen, read with the recording, record themselves reading, listen to themselves reading, then comprehension questions.

        2. Renaissance (myOn) contained more collaborative features that could be used for students that already know how to read.

        3. S. Rossall will get numbers on costs so we can make better decisions. To be presented at our next meeting.

        4. IXL is being explored as an option for the 2019-2020 school year. (Currently in negotiations). S. Rossall will bring more information to the next meeting
