Our students participate in a daily 45 minute special area schedule which includes graphic arts,
PE, visual art, GEMS Science, media/guidance, and music. All students go to the computer lab
for reading and math using the Pearson Success Maker program. All classes participate in
infusion classes every week where they are provided higher level thinking and problem
solving/critical thinking activities that are application of the core curriculum through drama and
visual arts for 90 minutes every other week. Students scoring 75% or above on a norm

Body Mass Index
Body Mass Index for-age-percentile is a measurement that incorporates height, weight, age, and
gender to compare an individual child against other children of his or her age for height and
weight. BMI is screening tool to assess the health risk status of children. Leon County Schools
Performed BMI calculations on all students in K, 1st, and 3rd-8th grades. This information is
used to provide parent information on their child’s current health status as well as allow the
school district to use the statistical data in determining future health promotion programs and
curriculum changes in the area of health and PE.

On the Reading portion of the FCAT, the percent of students making learning gains in reading
decreased by 1%.


        End of Year Objective 1:
        By June 2006, 64% of the all curriculum (matched) students in the third (retained), fourth
        and fifth grade will make learning gains on the FCAT SSS in reading.

       Research-based Strategies needed to implement this objective:

       Strategy 1: Teachers will provide systematic and explicit daily vocabulary instruction.

       Researched-based Programs for this strategy:
       Open Court, SRA Vocabulary Skills and Five Step Process for Teaching Vocabulary
       (Marzano)

        Progress Monitoring for this strategy:
        1. Administrators will conduct classroom walk throughs
        2. Reading coaches will monitor implementation of strategies
        3. Students will keep vocabulary notebooks (Open Court, SRA Vocabulary Skills and
        Arts Infusion)
        4. Vocabulary instruction will be documented in grade level and weekly teacher lesson
        plans
        5. Weekly vocabulary assessment
Strategy 2: Students will receive explicit instruction in comprehension development.

Researched-based Programs for this strategy:
Open Court, SRA Reading Mastery and PALS

Progress Monitoring for this strategy:
1. Administrators will conduct classroom walk throughs
2. Reading coaches will monitor implementation of strategies
3. Weekly fluency checks with ii and iii students
4. Comprehension strategies will be documented in weekly lesson plans
5. Teachers will administer weekly Open Court assessments
6. Students and teachers will monitor individual reading goals


Strategy 3: All students will receive individualized computer assisted instruction.
Students who have AIP's in reading will participate in the program daily. Other students
will participate at least three times per week.

Researched-based Programs for this strategy:
Pearson's Success Maker

Progress Monitoring:
1. Administrators and teachers will review Success Maker reports on a weekly basis
2. Ongoing review of student data with Pearson consultant


End of the Year Objective 2: By June of 2006, 73% of the lowest 25% of all curriculum
(matched) students in third (retained), fourth and fifth grade will make learning gains in
reading on FCAT SSS.

Research-based Strategies needed to meet this objective:

Strategy 1: At-risk students (first through fifth grade students who are working below
grade level with AIP's in reading) will receive tutoring in reading in the 21st Century
Program.

Researched-based Programs for this strategy:
Achieve It, FCAT Explorer

Progress Monitoring for this strategy:
1. DIBELS will be administered quarterly
2. Bi-weekly vocabulary and comprehension assessments

Strategy 2: At risk students will receive explicit reading instruction in small groups
daily.
         Researched-based Programs for this strategy:
         Open Court and SRA Reading Mastery

         Progress Monitoring for this strategy:
         1. Weekly Open Court, SRA and teacher generated assessments
         2. DIBELS will be administered quarterly

Needs Assessment data for this goal:

Body Mass Index
Body Mass Index for-age-percentile is a measurement that incorporates height, weight, age, and gender to compare
an individual child against other children of his or her age for height and weight. BMI is screening tool to assess the
health risk status of children. Leon County Schools Performed BMI calculations on all students in K, 1 st, and 3rd-
8th grades. This information is used to provide parent information on their child’s current health status as well as
allow the school district to use the statistical data in determining future health promotion programs and curriculum
changes in the area of health and PE.
