I think I have bit off more than I can chew but it is something that has to be tackled so here goes. Students failing classes because of homework.

There is no specific date because this will be an on-going process. I will start with an action research looking at random students failing a class or classes. I will then look at why they are failing - because of test, homework or just lack of effort. From there I will build a PLC to look at this issue.

By May 15, 2013, there will be a 10% reduction in the number of students referred for Special Education when compared to the number of students referred for 2011-2012.

Now to explain...for my Leadership project I would like to tackle the RTI system my school currently has in place. We have the formal RTI documents that teachers fill out when they have students who need assistance, and have Tier 1, 2, and 3 interventions in place in both literacy and math. The project would be to pull all of these things together into a coherent system that works continuously to find the best solutions for students. Right now we have several parts of the system working, but not they are isolated and disjointed. The number of students referred for Sped. has not been impacted significantly even with these parts in place. I would like to work with all the different personnel involved (collaboratively) and find a way to make our system more meaningful for students and teachers. My goal is that the number of students who still need to be tested would be reduced because we would find out what works for them before getting to that point.

By May 1, 2013, there will be a 50% increase in the number of students in math pull-out interventions who have grown one grade level from math pre-test to post-test as measured by the Brigance diagnostic testing tool.

Our school has had great success with interventions in the area of literacy. Utilizing that program design, I want to implement a pull-out intervention program that has an intense focus on number sense and problem solving. Pre-test show that we have 66 children in grades 3-5 that are currently working well below grade level with most of these kids performing between the 1st and 2nd grade level in mathematics. Data also shows all 66 students are struggling with basic number sense. My goal is to ensure that all students grow in the area of math and specifically that at least 50% grow by a grade level (based on diagnostic tool) by the end of the 2012/13 school year.

By April 1, 2013, there will be a 100% growth in literacy scores from at-risk to some risk in the 3rd grade as measured by Dibels Next and Daze.

I am very excited with the SMART goal. We have pulled the 3rd grade students who are at-risk. This was determined from the Iowa test scores, Dibels Next and Daze scores. Our goal is to not only provide small group intervention as well as one-on-one intervention but we want to involve the parents in the intervention process. By working with the teachers and instructional facilitators, we are going to provide intervention instruction to these parents of the at-risk students. We are personally calling and inviting them to the school for pizza and then we will provide hands-on activities for them to take home to work with their student. Every two weeks we will send home two more activities for them to use at home. We know that having parents involved in the education of their child increases their chance for success at school. This will be my Leadership Project. My goal is to see 100% growth in these students through the interventions they are receiving at school as well as from the intervention they are receiving from their parent. We will target phonics and fluency.

By implementing enrichment activities to our classrooms on a daily basis, we will see growth in all students. My goal is to ensure that our above grade level students are also continuing to grow.

• Date: May 2012 • Measureable change: Implement enrichment activities so when a student has already mastered a standard, they can be working on a different assignment that will challenge them and build their back ground knowledge. 75% of students, who scored above grade level, will continue to improve their scores throughout the year. • Target Population: Students who tested above grade level • Maps scores. These test are taken 3 times a year

By May 2013 there will be a 80% change in the physical environment in the school climate as measured/evidenced by the physical appearance and cleanliness of JacksonvilleHigh School.

By May 31, 2013 there will be a 50% decrease in the number of office referrals as compared to the 2011-2012 data as measured by the increased number of Classroom Walk Through’s and consistent visibility.

SMART GOAL By May 31, 2013 there will be a 50% increase in the number of SPED students who meet or exceed growth on the MAP assessment.

LEADERSHIP PROJECT My leadership project includes creating staff development for teachers so that they can better understand and utilize student MAP data.

By May 31, 2013, there will be a 20% decrease on the number of 7th grade students placed in In-School Suspension as measured by school discipline data as compared to the 2011-2012 school year.

This goal will be conveyed with the 7th grade student body as well as the 7th grade team of teachers. The responsible parties involved in accomplishing this goal are the 7th grade student body, the 7th grade team teachers, and myself.

There will be consistent communication throughout the year regarding this goal via classroom discipliine logs, office referrals, emails between teachers and principals, and school discipline pep rallies.

SMART Goal ... broken down into quarters. By 2012-10-18, there will be an increase to at least 75% in feedback on weekly team notes as measured/evidenced by emails to teams.

By 2012-12-21, there will be an increase to at least 75% in feedback on weekly team notes as measured/evidenced by emails to teams.

By 2013-03-15, there will be an increase to at least 75% in feedback on weekly team notes as measured/evidenced by emails to teams.

By 2013-05-24, there will be an increase to at least 75% in feedback on weekly team notes as measured/evidenced by emails to teams.

By the end of 2012-2013 school year, there will be an increase in profiency on Common Formative Assessments for Algebra I students as measured by the invention services provided by the math teachers.

At Star City High School we have implemented the use of Common Formative Assessments to provide point in time intervention services and intervention services in a "Focus" time to specifically target learning deficiencies. Through the use of cloud technology, this is being implemented and will be my Leadership Project.

Here is my SMART Goal for T.G. Smith Elementary: There will be a 10% increase in math and/or literacy growth goals for PAC/RTI (Professional Assistance Community/Response to Intervention) students as measured by an increase in NWEA MAP math and/or literacy lexile scores from the Fall, Winter and Spring test scores.

By May 2013, there will be an increase in the number of classroom Walkthroughs. Currently we are seeing the schools 40 teachers about once a month. In May we would see that number change to 4 per teacher per month per adminstrator.

Plan- Find Focus areas with teacher imput in Literacy, Math and Activity classes. Do- Walk with specific areas listed above and report back to teacher Check - Review data collected and review with school leadership team. Act - Change Focus area with advice form the leadership team.
