School Innovation & Improvement Plan

Outcome goals for this academic school year

School Innovation and Improvement Plan At-a-Glance

  • 2018-2019

  • Bailey's Elementary School

  • Region 2

  • Julie Easa, Principal  

End of Year SMARTR Outcome:  Literacy Instruction

  • By June 2019, 80% of students K-2 will make at least one year of growth according to the DRA2.

  • By June 2019, 80% of PreK students entering Kindergarten (FECEP/HeadStart/PreSchool) will know 12 or more uppercase letters, 9 or more lowercase letters, and score 5 or more on name writing assessment (FCPS PreK Expectations).

Strategy 1

  • Monitor literacy growth for all students


  • Round Table 15 min (RT-15) imbedded into CLT meetings throughout the year (as needed / at least monthly)

  • Look at student writing in CLTs and name and determine next teaching point

  • Review data to form focus groups (students with similar needs:  plan, teach, monitor, assess) in CLTs starting in September around reading, writing. oral language

  • Students not making expected progress (not meeting quarterly benchmarks, unsuccessful Tier 1 interventions, pre-identified Tier 2 & 3 students, etc) will be monitored through MTSS

Strategy 2

  • Implement Word Study throughout the Language Arts workshops


  • Professional development (PD) embedded into CLTs /Lab sitess

  • Set School-wide expectations around: structure, time, content, assessment, context

  • Quarterly check-in and feedback from teachers, check data, transfer to reading and writing

Strategy 3

  • Implement Shared Reading and Interactive Read Aloud during the Language Arts workshop.


  • Continue to plan for Shared Reading(SR)/Interactive Read Aloud (IRA) during CLTs (Prek-1) throughout the year

  • PD around SR/IRA (small and whole group) and plan at CLTs (2nd) (focus on thinking deeply about text) (increasing student oral engagement at all language levels)

  • Focus parent/family engagement around the impact of reading:  reading aloud, conversation, storytelling, questioning, take-home reading

End of Year SMARTR Outcome:  Math Instruction

  • By June 2019, 80% of all K-2 students will make at least one years worth of growth according to the AVMR Addition and Subtraction Rubric.

  • By June 2019, 80% of PreK students entering Kindergarten (FECEP/HeadStart/PreSchool Special Ed) will rote count to 20 and ascribe numerals to dot patterns up to 5.

Strategy 1

  • Implement targeted small group instruction within the math workshop.


  • Implement differentiated stations with learning targets that are engaging and purposeful.

  • Engage in job-embedded professional development around moving kids along the numeracy continuum.

  • Utilize the MTSS process to identify and monitor student progress.

Strategy 2

  • Increase professional learning around the stages of early arithmetical learning.


  • Teachers will engage in professional learning including:

    1. Advantage Math Recovery (AVMR) Course 1

    2. Advantage Math Recovery (AVMR) Course 2

    3. Learning About Numbers in Kindergarten (LANK)

    4. Numeracy Collaborative

    5. Before School Professional Development (Workshop Wednesdays)

Strategy 3

  • Implement strategies to support language learning in math.


  • Incorporate sentence frames in math stations

  • Develop math word wall

  • Broaden word of the week

  • Preview math vocabulary during calendar math or morning meeting

End of Year SMARTR Outcome:  STEM / CETA

  • By June 2019, Bailey’s will move from partial to full in the area of professional development as measured by Bailey’s STEM  continuum of implementation rubric

  • By June 2019, Bailey’s will move from partial to full on the Kennedy Center CETA continuum.

  • By June 2019 at least 10 staff members will receive a Kennedy Center CETA Certificate of Study.

STEM Strategy 1

Increase knowledge and communication with staff and families around STEM.


  • Use social media, school website, News You Choose, parent liaisons, and school staff  to disseminate information about STEM learning opportunities in the community and highlight STEM at Bailey’s. #BaileysSTEM

STEM Strategy 2

Ensure resources and professional development opportunities are available to staff in order to promote STEM integration in the classroom.


  • Professional Development around school-wide STEM definition and understanding at BOY and Workshop Wednesdays.

  • Professional Development around STEM integration into the classroom.

  • STEM bins containing building materials will be created and made available for classroom teachers to check out and use in the classroom twice within the 2018-2019 school year.

  • Use academic vocabulary to create meaningful STEM experiences that promote cross-curricular connections.

  • Develop a database of engineers from the community to serve as partners and career models in STEM education.

CETA Strategy 1

  • Increase CETA communication and implementation.


  • Create Bailey’s CETA Certificate of Study cohort.

  • Use Bailey’s Primary ES Google Community to create staff buy in (share resources, examples of CETA happening in the classroom, things learned at workshops).

  • Increase presence on social media #BaileysCETA.

  • Increase communication around The Kennedy Center’s Certificate of Study (specifically collaborative submissions and past celebrations).
