Lexington School Continuous Improvement Plan School Improvement Goals/Strategies/Action Steps

  Lexington School's Continuous Improvement Team has selected three goals on which to improve for the 2010-2011 school year.  The goals are to increase proficiency in the following areas:  reading, math, and graduation exam.

     In order to increase reading proficiency, teachers will use data interpretation.  Based on the data information from Alabama Reading and Math Test (ARMT) and the Stanford Achievement Test, 10 ed. (SAT-10), teachers will update pacing guides to reflect the areas in need of improvement.  Elementary teachers will also utilize Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI) strategies in their classrooms.  The reading coach will provide teachers in K-6 with professional development concerning best practices in reading.  Instructional pacing guides will also be used in the elementary classrooms for language arts.

     Another goal for Lexington's Continuous Improvement Plan is to increase math proficiency based on SAT-10 and ARMT results.  To accomplish this goal, teachers will use the strategy of curriculum alignment.  They will work together to align Alabama Course of Study standards for math and the materials needed to meet these standards.  They will also provide students with intensive instruction by implementing small group instruction in their classrooms.  Teachers that have been trained in the Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative (AMSTI) program will utilize the hands-on math investigation and manipulatives.

The third goal is to increase the Alabama High School Graduation Exam (AHSGE) proficiency in all subjects.  One strategy that will be used to accomplish this is vertical alignment of core subjects.  Departments will collaboratively develop pacing guides, correlate lessons to the AHSGE specifications, and provide targeted assistance to students.  Another strategy to be implemented is curriculum alignment.  Teachers will align the curriculum by first identifying the least mastered standards.  Next, they will develop pacing guides for these standards.  The final step will be remediation of skills as needed.
