2016-17 Land Trust Final Report

Goal

Current winter 2016 benchmark testing shows 39% of students are below benchmark in Reading Fluency. By Spring of 2017 we will increase the percentage of students reaching benchmark by 5%. Baseline data will be collected in Fall of 2016.

Academic Areas

• Reading Measurements

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

The specific measurements that we will use is the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skill (DIBELS) assessments. Kindergarten will use First Sound Fluency and Non-sense words. 1st will use non-sense words and reading fluency. 2nd-5th will use fluency and accuracy scores.

Bell View chose this goal because we have less than 60% school-wide of students reaching benchmark in reading success predictors. We want to increase the percentage of students meeting benchmark in reading fluency.

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.
