55% of Mockingbird students in grades K-6 will meet or exceed their projected growth goal on MAP testing in the area of math.
Strategy: All students will increase their understanding of math concepts and problem solving strategies through small-group, differentiated math instruction to address skill deficits determined by common and formative assessment data.
36% (85 out of 237) of students from Fall of 2019 to Fall of 2020 met or exceeded their projected growth goals in Math.
Students were unable to test in Spring 2020 due to Covid-19.
Other sources of data: MAP Math (K-6), NSCAS Math Test (3-6), District Common Formative Assessments, NSCAS, AQUESTT
Staff will identify and unpack priority math standards at each grade level.
Staff will meet regularly in professional learning teams to review student assessment data, make regrouping changes as needed, and identify curricular resources to best meet the skill needs of students in each group.
All teachers will utilize explicit math instruction and manipulatives to develop conceptual math knowledge (systematic, direct, engaging and success oriented).
Use student data to determine student mathematics intervention and enrichment needs.
Each grade level will schedule a 30 minute math intervention and enrichment block to provide small group instruction with paraprofessional support allocated to the math intervention block.
Steering team will meet quarterly to analyze building-wide data.
All students are engaged and active learners who demonstrate the five core social emotional learning competencies (self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making)
Strategy: Implementation of Morning Meeting and utilization of conscious discipline strategies.
