Scheduling

September 1, 2016

Daily period of individualized, differentiated instruction to advance personal learning environments; remediate defined student weaknesses; integrate learning centers; and provide release time for therapies and elective instruction.

 

 

 Progress Report – Goal 2A

 

  •        R.I.S.E. is an attenuated period in the elementary day (22-25 minutes) to enhance the remedial needs of students in each class and advance curriculum and program initiatives using both directed and independent measures of instruction driven by data and teacher observation.  On any given day during this period, an instructor will establish a classroom environment where he/she may be reviewing with several students an important concept taught earlier in the day while other classmates are reading independently, beginning homework, researching a topic, or collaborating on a project that emanates an academic rigor that will challenge students to utilize higher order thinking skills and multiple intelligences to problem solve.  Further, this period will be scheduled, whenever possible, to include pull-out sessions for special assignments including instrumental music, OT/PT, Speech Therapy, group counseling, and other necessary programs that traditionally interrupt full academic periods of instruction.  As R.I.S.E. will also be a common period throughout each elementary school during the school day, students who are departmentalized will be afforded the opportunity to visit their teachers within a specific subject area to ask questions regarding content; reinforce a concept he/she may be having trouble with; or even clarify a process needed for that evening’s homework assignment.  

 

  •       R.I.S.E. is not a free period from academics for students to converse with peers, nor is it an extension of the period before it.  Rather, it is a time for the classroom teacher to assess the needs of his/her students and ensure that these needs are met.

  

Overall Status – Goal has been met.

  

Quantitative Goal Goal #1:                                                                                                                                             

Enhance communications between the district and school community over and above what is required. The goal is to disseminate a minimum of three (3) e-newsletters that will successfully reach at least 70% of district parents having an active email address and other public community venues (e.g. website, bulletin boards). In an effort to strengthen the reach to parents via an ancillary venue, the superintendent will continue to conduct a minimum of three (3) Superintendent’s Forums throughout the year to be held during the evening hours.
