                                           Section 2: School Narrative

       The Lee School community believes that children learn best in a child-centered environment
where curriculum and instruction are developmentally appropriate. By accepting each child as an
individual and in helping each child reach his/her maximum potential, each child will have a better
opportunity to achieve a higher quality of life. We believe that teachers, educational assistants,
parents, administrators, students and the community share in this responsibility.
       We will strive to improve pupil achievement at all grade levels, foster parent involvement and
meet all P5 and Title One objectives. We will provide for an appropriate instructional program, pupil
services and procedures to meet the unique needs of all students. Parents, teachers, support staff,
educational assistants and administrators will be included in an ongoing evaluation of Lee School’s
educational plan. We will provide for appropriate staff development to enable these individuals to help
carry out the plan. We will strive for academic gains that will exceed district-wide average or
schoolwide average for the three preceding years.
        Lee School is located at 9th Street and Meinecke Avenue, in the heart of Milwaukee. The
student population numbers 425 students. Approximately 99% of the school population is eligible for
free or reduced meals. Thirty nine percent of the school population receives special education
services. Ninety seven and two tenths percent of the students are African-American and 2.8% are
Asian. Approximately 20% of the student population attends the CLC after-school program. Based on
demographics, Lee is designated as a P-5 school. The staff is comprised of 21 teachers, 18
assistants and 9 support staff members.
        In an effort to improve students’ reading skills, Direct Instruction, a research-based reading
program, is being used in regular education classes from K-5 through 4th grade. All special education
students requiring specialized instruction in reading are taught using Direct Instruction through eighth
grade. The Direct Instruction Language for Learning program is taught beginning in K-4. The Direct
Instruction Spelling Mastery program will be implemented in the 2005-2006 school year in K-5 and
first grade. Grades 5-8 will use Board-approved reading adoptions. Students are encouraged to read
independently through participation in the 600 Minute Club and Pizza Hut Reading Incentive
programs. Students receive additional reinforcement in reading though the Computerized Curriculum
Corporation(CCC) and the Community Learning Center (CLC program).
       P-5 portfolios have shown student growth in writing skills as a result of monthly On-Demand
writing prompts. The 6+1 Writing Traits program will continue to be used in the 2005-2006 school
year and will continue to be a focus of staff development activities.
       Lee School focused on the need to improve students’ basic computation skills in the 2004-
2005 school year by implementing Mad Minute Mondays. This school -wide practice was successful
and will continue in the 2005-2006 school year. Students will continue to use the CCC program which
provides individualized tutoring in math. Math support will be provided to students in the CLC after-
school program. Intermediate CLC students will be required to use the web-based Skills Tutor
program for math, reading and writing. To support improvement in the area of math, the staff will
continue to participate in various inservices provided by the Math Reform Grant. Staff will develop
Classroom-Based Assessments (CABS) based on the learning targets to provide a measure of
consistency among grade levels.
       One major success at Lee School has been the improved reading skills of students who have
used the Direct Instruction Reading program for four years. Classroom-based assessments (CABS)
and reading verifications reflect an improvement in comprehension and oral reading skills all content
areas. Special Education students at Lee have excelled in the area of reading. Their decoding and
comprehension skills have consistently improved with the use of Direct Instruction. Standardized
                   2005 -2006 Lee Elementary Reviewed Educational Plan, Page 3 of 20, 5/6/10
testing results show that special education students do not score significantly lower than their regular
education peers in the area of reading.
        The Homework First grant was a huge success at Lee School for students in grades 3-5.
Students were extremely engaged and interested in completing their homework. Students took an
active interest in their homework and were excited about having completed their work.
       Student and parent surveys indicate that another area of success is the positive environment
that Lee School fosters. Parents’ surveys strongly reflect that they believe students are treated with
respect, that the school is meeting students’ needs, that Lee is supportive of parents, and that Lee
has a culture of caring for students. Parents have expressed that they believe that the Lee School
staff makes a strong effort to work with and communicate with parents. A majority of parents
expressed that they felt their children were making academic progress and that Lee School is doing a
good job of preparing students for the future. Programs such as Student Government, basketball,
cheerleading and peer tutoring provide students with opportunities to develop positive social skills
and improve their self-esteem.
        Another success was the implementation of various family and community programs. During
the 2004-2005 school year, students participated in the Pennies for Patients program which benefited
leukemia patients and the Jump Rope for Heart program which helped raise students’ interest in
community involvement. Students were extremely excited about the funds they raised by participating
in these programs and were proud that they were able to help others. Further successful programs at
Lee School include the UW -Milwaukee pre-college program, the Activate America program and the
Abstinence Program. The UWM pre-college program involved UWM staff members conducting
weekly sessions with 7th and 8th grade students in the areas of career exploration and education,
study skills and test taking, planning for the future, surviving high school and life skills. The Activate
America program allowed 4th and 5th grade students and their families to enjoy membership at the
YMCA, and educated students on the benefits and importance of physical fitness and healthy diets.
Students participated in physical fitness activities both at Lee School and at the YMCA. Students
enjoyed this program and developed an understanding of the importance of being physically active
and living a healthy lifestyle. The Abstinence Program taught students about remaining abstinent until
marriage, and encouraged students to think about their futures, using their minds, not their bodies.
Another opportunity afforded to Lee students was an entrepreneur summer program at UW -
Whitewater. Six Lee School students attended. Furthermore, the Junior Achievement Program and
Career Week activities provided community models for students and encouraged future success.
        One challenge during the 2005-2006 school year will be to improve in the area of Critical
Thinking in mathematics. Analysis of test scores shows that Lee School students need to strengthen
their problem-solving skills. The success of the school-wide Mad Minute program has resulted in the
implementation of the Word Problem of the Week, which will help students develop the skills they
need to successfully work complex word problems. The Math Reform Grant will continue to provide
for staff development which will help us improve instruction. The Math Lead Teacher will collaborate
with CLC staff to align math goals.
        Lee School continues to face the challenge of meeting the needs of new students who are low
performers. Curriculum must be constantly modified to accommodate the needs of these students.
This presents a significant challenge to classroom teachers. The staff at Lee School makes every
effort to meet the needs of all students and is dedicated to helping each child reach his/her potential.

You are only required to list and develop strategies for Continuous Improvement Focused Monitoring (CIFM) items below 80%. In left column, list MPS ED Plan CIFM numbers of
items below 80%. In the right column, cut and paste Special Education CIFM item numbers and descriptors below 80%, which can be found in your school’s 2004-2005 CIFM
report. This report will be posted in the Educational Plan 05-06 folder on the MPS portal. The goal is to improve compliance to 100%. If your school is not required to develop
strategies to address any CIFM items (i.e. none were below 80%), enter the word ―none‖ in the table below. No strategies will need to be documented in Section 7.
