School Innovation and Improvement Plan At-a-Glance

  • 2017-2018

  • Virginia Run Elementary School

  • Region 5

  • Laraine Edwards, Principal

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #1

By June 2018, all students will make progress in the area of problem solving and reasoning as measured by the mathematics performance task rubric scored on a 1-4 scale. All students will show at least one level of growth in the problem solving and/or reasoning domain of the rubric. Students that receive 4’s on the fall baseline assessment will show growth in at least one additional domain on their grade level rubric.

Strategy 1

  • We will work collaboratively to strengthen Tier 1 math instruction using math workshop model

Strategy 2

  • Teachers will assess students quarterly using grade level determined performance assessments based upon data (KMRA, MRA, SOL, etc).

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #2

By June 2018, Gap Group 3 students will make progress in the area of problem solving and reasoning as measured by the mathematics performance task rubric scored on a 1-4 scale. Gap Group 3 students will show at least one level of growth in the problem solving and/or reasoning domain of the rubric. Students that receive 4’s in the fall baseline assessment will show growth in at least one additional domain on their grade level rubric. By June 2018, SPED students will make progress in the area of problem solving and reasoning as measured by the mathematics performance task rubric scored on a 1-4 scale. SPED students will show at least one level of growth in the problem solving and/or reasoning domain of the rubric. Students that receive 4’s in the fall baseline assessment will show growth in at least one additional domain on their grade level rubric.

Strategy 1

  • The school will continue to implement math workshop as a way to strengthen tier 1 instruction.

Strategy 2

  • The school will use a structured process for identifying, monitoring, and instructing all students at risk in mathematics.

Strategy 3

  • Responsive Instruction

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #3

By Spring 2018 all students will demonstrate growth in writing by moving one level in the Structure and Organization and/or Meaning and Elaboration domains of a grade-level FCPS writing rubric. Students who receive a 4 on the Structure and Organization and Meaning and Elaboration domains on the fall baseline assessment will show growth on at least one additional domain on the grade-level FCPS writing rubric.

Strategy 1

  • We will work collaboratively to strengthen Tier 1 Writing Instruction using the Writing Workshop Model.

Strategy 2

  • Teachers will assess student writing using the FCPS writing rubric.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome #4

By Spring 2018, students in grades 1-6 identified at risk by the universal screener in reading (at or below the 39th percentile) will make more than one year’s progress as measured by DRA2. Students in Kindergarten identified at risk by the universal screener in reading (at or below the 39th percentile) will meet a 3 or higher on the spring DRA2.

Strategy 1

  • The school will use a structured process for identifying, monitoring, and instructing all students at risk in reading.

Strategy 2

  • Responsive Instruction
