English Language Arts Strategies

Outcome:  Ensure students are making sufficient progress to be on grade level in English Language Arts.

Goal: By June 2024, the percentage of grades 1-3 students who demonstrate progress in language acquisition, as measured by WIDA, will increase by at least 10 percentage points. (From 46% in 2023 to ≥56% in 2024)


  • Strategy 1:  Improve use of interactive read alouds for building knowledge and vocabulary through texts that affirm students' lived experiences. (HLP 1, 3)
  • Strategy 2:  Increase interdisciplinary opportunities to build language and SEL skill development across content areas and throughout the school day. (HLP 1, 3)
  • Strategy 3:  Increase intentional use of scaffolds, supports and extensions in whole group settings (word recognition, language comprehension and writing). (HLP 2-4)

Mathematics Strategies

Outcome:  Ensure students are making sufficient progress to be on grade level in Mathematics.

Goal: By June of 2024, the percentage of English Language Learners in grades 1-6 meeting expectations in the iReady "Numbers and Operations" domain will increase by 10%.


  • Strategy 1: Use conversation structures to increase academic talk between students.
  • Strategy 2: Increase teachers implementation strategies related to Shift 8: from looking for correct answers towards revealing student thinking.

Chronic Absenteeism

Outcome: Decrease chronic absenteeism 

Goal: By June 2024, our chronic abseenteism rate will decrease from 18.7% to below 15% as measured by district dashboard.


  • Strategy 1: Strengthen school team practices to monitor attendance data and determine need for intervention and additional support.
  • Strategy 2: Strengthening messaging to staff, students and families around attendance to school. Each stakeholder should be able to understand how daily attendance matters, not only for academic success, but because school offers an opportunity to develop social and emotional skills such as listening, paying attention, problem-solving and self-regulation, all which are needed to grow and learn.
