Strategic Plan Indicators

  • After each school leadership team reflected on its school culture, community, and the key contributing factors to student growth, they used this information to select the Strategic Plan Indicators that would have the greatest positive impact for their students.  Each school was directed to select two to six indicators on which to focus during the 2018-19 school year.  Certainly, we all know that if we focus narrowly and deeply, we are more likely to realize positive results.  The indicators that this school’s leadership team selected are noted below.

  • 2019-2020 Strategic Plan Indicator(s) Chosen by the School - 3, 6 (expand to view details)

    Indicator 3.  INCREASE THE USE OF RESTORATIVE PRACTICES IN SCHOOLS AND OFFICES

    Indicator 6. INCREASE THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS IN GRADES 3-8 WHO MEET OR EXCEED EXPECTATIONS ON STANDARDIZED READING, LANGUAGE ARTS, AND MATHEMATICS ASSESSMENTS

    After reviewing the 2018-2019 SIP and indicators, it was determined that we needed to refine our focus to use data that was available in a more timely manner and could be measured throughout the school year. Our PBIS program focuses on preparing students for their future and respecting self, learning, property and others. Programs such as Restorative Practices and Second Step provide students with additional strategies to foster collaborative and positive relationships. Our hope is that by providing strategies, we can reduce the number of incidents between students, resulting in a decrease of referrals.

    To align with the county initiative of increasing the number of 2nd graders reading on or above grade level, data for our incoming third graders indicated that 48% of our students were reading below grade level. Further analysis revealed that 58% were ELL students and 14% were Special Education students who were reading below grade level. It was determined that professional development and strategies that focus on explicit vocabulary instruction and oral language development would provide students with foundational skills that will increase their reading proficiency.

Strategic Journey

  • Throughout the next 3 years, schools will focus on their chosen Strategic Plan Indicators as the drivers to increase student engagement and achievement within their schools. They will choose strategies to help them grow or increase within each indicator and will monitor and evaluate the student and school changes that take place along the journey.  Below you will see what this school imagines their students and school to look like in 2021 after having focused and worked on their chosen indicators for three years.

Our Vision of Success: 2021

  • By the spring of 2020, students and adults should be able to observe the following routines and practices at Brock Bridge Elementary. Throughout all classrooms, restorative practices, including peace circles, will be implemented. The use of PBIS incentives and celebrations will also be present throughout the school environment. The school will have established the student ambassador program to welcome all new students into our community. Parents will be actively involved in quarterly events to help develop strong community relationships. All staff will participate in monthly team building activities to foster strong collaborative relationships.

    Parents will be able to discuss how the use of Class Dojo has improved communication with teachers. All adults in the school community should notice students’ more positive perspective of the school and its learning environment as well as improved conflict resolution skills. Finally, school staff should be aware of active student leadership in the welcoming of new students through the student ambassador program, the Playworks Junior Coach Leadership Program, and various PBIS events.

    Staff will implement instructional strategies and daily guided reading to increase student growth in the areas of reading, assessments, and language acquisition. Our staff will receive differentiated professional development on the various instructional strategies identified within the School Improvement Plan. We will continue to collaborate with the reading team, EL team, Central Office, and the Title 1 office to provide PD and resources for language acquisition. We recognize our EL students have a deficit in language acquisition and therefore need additional strategies and resources to achieve academic growth.

    Students will see improved academic growth, feel comfortable taking risks, feel supported, and have a voice in their academic success. They will say that Brock Bridge is a nurturing and supportive environment where all stakeholders have a genuine concern for student success.
