Table from Laura Caudill Title 1 Coordinator.
4. Professional Development. (In what ways is PD data-driven, tied to your plan, instructional, and measurable? What follow-up is needed? What PD is provided to instructional assistants? Does the PD for the assistants match the activities in the school’s consolidated plan?)
The Professional Development committee based Professional Development on our school’s consolidated plan and contributions. The 2010-2011 plan includes the following sessions:
· AIMS Web Training
· Writing Training
· Technology Integration Training
· Reading Strategies
· Formative Assessment
· Study Island/ Education City
· Clicker & Goal Calculator Training
Follow up will be provided in monthly curriculum meetings and Teacher Talk sessions among grade levels.
5. Parent Involvement. (How were the parent evaluations used to develop parent activities? How will parental participation be expanded in existing activities? What new activities are planned to increase parental participation?)
Parent evaluations help determine appropriate parent activities. Mapleton will continue the use of Agenda books, Communication Folders, Back to School Bonanza, school and class newsletters, parent-teacher conferences as needed, informal assessment meetings, PTSG, Family Fridays, Family Reading Night,
and Teacher Web Pages.
On-line specific activities and resources correlated to T-Pro subtests will be provided for family involvement in targeting identified areas of weakness.
10 Teacher Licenses are funded for Reading A-Z to provide on-level “take home” reading materials for families.
6. Assists transition. (What will your school do to emotionally and academically ease student transition from level to level – Preschool to Kindergarten, Kindergarten to 1st, Primary to Intermediate, Intermediate to Middle to High School?)
To assist students to make successful transition to the next level we have planned the following events:
3rd grade students will receive percentage grades and 5th graders will visit the middle school in May. Preschool to Kindergarten parents can sign up at the Kindergarten Registration. Jump Start, a two week session designed to assist Kindergarten children entering in the fall, is planned. Prior to the last day of school, Mapleton Movin’ On Up Day is scheduled to meet their teacher for the following school year.
Literacy and Math folders are compiled each year to provide cumulative test data and work samples.
7. Decisions about assessments. (How are teachers included in determining the selection of assessment instruments How are teachers included in interpreting the data from the assessment? How are the data used to improve student performance?)
Teachers review assessment options and choose the one that best serves the needs of the students at Mapleton Elementary. T_Pro (K-3)AIMS WEB), STAR Reading (1-5),CTBS(3), Thinklink(3-5), and Core Reading Program Assessments were selected for assessing reading. After compiling the results, the information is presented to the faculty. Each teacher will make instructional decisions that address
deficits in reading. Also, assessment data is compiled in Literacy folders that follow students to each grade. A literacy assessment timeline was developed based on teacher surveys that were conducted and reviewed by the Literacy committee.
8. Highly qualified staff. (Are all teachers certified in fields in which they are teaching? What is the educational background of instructional assistants?)
All Mapleton teachers are certified teachers for the appropriate grade levels. The Houghton Mifflin
Early Intervention program has trained the Reading Specialists. The Reading specialist
has an endorsement in reading and Masters of Education. Support Personnel (FRC, ESL teachers)
will be invited to attend professional development in appropriate reading strategies.

Students not meeting state standards in Reading are involved in our reading intervention programs. Spreadsheets are maintained by intervention staff to identify students and to track on-going progress. Students are also encouraged to attend E.S.S.. Students who receive migratory assistance are offered at home summer school. The ELL teacher coordinates with the reading specialist to meet the needs of ELL students.
