The purpose of Allen Elementary is to offer a high quality education for all students. Teachers use the Common Core State Standards as a measure of skills that students should achieve. Teachers use ongoing assessments to check for student achievement towards these grade level expectations. The data from these assessments help determine which students need extra support.
The current data includes:
Local Assessments such as, Guided Reading Levels, District Writing rubric scores, and skill area levels for all academic areas including science and social studies. Teachers officially turn in a list of students who need extra assistance in September, January, and March. Students who are At-Risk receive extra support in a number of ways. Once identified students may receive extra help from an Interventionist during the day. We also use school social workers to assist students who are struggling in other non-academic areas.
Allen Elementary will have a concentrated focus on continuing improving student proficiency in student engagement and higher order thinking, through continued implementation of Total Participation Techniques and the Higher Order Thinking Question Stems as well as Student Centered Instructional Strategies. We will review the Data Walk Data to ensure implementation and progress.
