Know Our Kids, Meet their Needs, Up the Mountain to T-2-4!

I have been so proud and impressed with the teachers who have had their data conferences so far.  The amount of work, effort, and thought that have been put into the plans using the data has been outstanding.  We have only a few weeks to move some of our students and with the planning going on – it will happen!  Keep making that march – it will happen!  Go Knights!

Here are the goals for Root Cause 1 – Quarter 3 (Feb. March, April)
55% of all students:
* Pass the 6th grade Released Reading STAAR test
* Pass the 7th grade Released Reading STAAR test
* Pass the 8th grade Released Reading STAAR test – DONE! YEAH!!!!
* Pass the 8th grade Released SS STAAR test –
75% of all Students:
* Pass the Reading Unit Tests
100% of core subject area classrooms using ELL strategies – DON’T FORGET THE ELL STRATEGIES!
Root Cause 2 – Quarter 3 (Feb. March, April)
* 60% of students pass the Writing STAAR  – Writing Released Practice was 27% – we are almost 1/2 way there
Root Cause 3 – Quarter 3 (Feb. March, April)
At least 50% of all students will score 85% or abovve on all unit tests

These are our goals for the next three months!  We need to be focused, focused, focused on these goals and on the readiness standards and make sure our students have the success we know they can have!  I will have the final scores for the other Released STAAR tests next week and will put them on the bulletin.

You all are continuing to do a great job using the Passports with your students.  Please be sure you state your CHAMPS expectations with your students so that everyone knows what to do!  We can never assume they know – always state what you want them to do, and follow the CHAMPS chart!  You are doing a great job – I am proud of you all!!
