                                    School Data and Summary Analysis
Use data identified on the Data Sources tab (or from other sources) as the basis for understanding the school and
identifying priority areas for improvement.
Guiding Questions: Review school data and consider a variety of perspectives including overall school/student
performance, sub-group performance, attendance, teacher satisfaction, instructional practice (from walk-
throughs/observations), and student learning (also from walk-throughs/observations as well as data).

1. What does the analysis tell you about your schools strengths?
Denton Elementary is performing well in grades K-2 as evidenced by proficiency levels ranging from 96% to 82% on
math objectives and 83% to 90% on reading objectives. Kindergarten writing proficiency is 99%. The school met AYP for
all students in reading and math. Our fourth and fifth grade students demonstrated improvement in reading, math, and
science EOG test scores. Denton exceeded targeted attendance proficiency of 90% and attained 96.8% for the 2008-
2009 school year. Denton’s performance composite improved from 65% to 72.8% in 2009.

Teachers at each grade level are provided the same planning time once a week. This allows collaboration and sharing of
lessons and strategies to help students achieve. There is ongoing staff development for instructional practices and
integrating technology into the curriculum. These two strengths were indicated when the Denton Elementary Staff took
the NCDPI Comprehensive Needs Assessment.
Parent surveys reflect a positive relationship with the community.


2. What does the analysis tell you about your schools gaps or opportunities for improvement?
Areas for improvement are observable in K-2 math summative proficiency levels ranging from 65% to 84%. First and
second grade writing scores show a decline in skill levels. Third grade reading and math scores also showed decreased
proficiency in 08-09 when compared to the previous year. The school is below district levels in every area except 4th
grade reading and math. Denton’s EDS subgroup met AYP via Safe Harbor status.

Staff surveys indicated need for improved classroom libraries, more bookroom resources, increased parental
involvement, more indepth data to direct instruction, and increased collaboration across grade levels. The departmental
needs survey prioritized list identified the need for math problem-solving units, connecting literacy to math methods, as
well as increased algebra resources. The staff requested concept based units for science, inquiry based science
assessments, and units of study for writer’s workshop.

3. What is data is missing, and how will you go about collecting this information for future use?
Math Summative proficiency scores in K-2 suggest skills are not being mastered. Closer analysis of those deficits needs
to occur. A more thorough examination of benchmark assessments would help provide specific skill information to aid
instruction.

Given the periodic nature of the Teacher Working Conditions Survey our staff completed the NCDPI Comprehensive
Needs Assessment School Level Instrument. Denton Elementary Staff also completed an end-of-the-year staff survey at
the completion of the school year 2008-2009 to help provide valuable feedback to improve our school.




4. Based upon the analysis conducted, what 3-5 top priorities emerge for the school?
Cite relevant evidence from your analysis to support these priorities.
1.Science is a priority. Denton’s science proficiency is 56.6% whereas the county’s proficiency is 67.3%. The staff has
expressed a desire for increased collaboration among grade levels sharing the same units as well as the need for more
concept based units of study.

2. Math EOG scores are below district proficiencies across the grade levels except at 4th grade.. EDS met math AYP by
safe harbor status. Students appear to be lacking basic skills as evidenced by K-2 math summative proficiencies. Those
deficiencies are carrying over into the upper grades. Children need to “know it and own it” to improve performance.
Teachers have requested additional staff development to connect literacy and math, problem-solving strategies, and
algebra resources.

3. Literacy scores for grades 3-5 are also below district levels with the exception of 4th grade. The staff has identified
the need for more bookroom sets, improved classroom libraries, and more expository text for struggling readers.

 Overall SMART Goal (Three Year Projection):
 All students entering the second grade will be proficient in reading by the year 2012. 90% of all Grades 3-5 students will be

 What is your next step? (Identify key approach or strategy that you will implement during 1st quarter to achieve your target
 goal.)
    Provide staff development/sharing time each month for teachers to talk across grade levels about implementing science goals
 which they share (Ex. 1st and 4th – rocks and k, 2nd and 5th – weather).
    Provide a large notebook for each grade level to download the DPI North Carolina Science Curriculum and then have each
 grade level create a list of resource needs from that material for implementation.
    Purchase additional science leveled readers for our bookroom.
