Improvement Plan

SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN

LEBANON PRIMARY SCHOOL

Grade Levels Served:  Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, First

2015-2016


The following is a brief description of how Lebanon Primary School will meet the accreditation benchmarks, or the requirements to be fully accredited, for this school year.
Accreditation benchmarks for state and federal AMO’s will serve as a priority for Lebanon Primary School.  We will follow the regional CIP pacing guides and curriculum guidelines that are in alignment with the Virginia State Standards of Learning.  The data will be monitored weekly through the use of student monitoring sheets, monthly tier monitoring sheets, PALS benchmarks, PALS Quick Checks, and formative/summative assessments.
The following is a list of goals for student academic improvement.  (To see the list of strategies for meeting these goals and to see other information pertaining to the LPS School Improvement Plan, please click on the pdf file at the bottom of this screen.)
English Goal:
To achieve state and federal (AMO) requirements, students will demonstrate proficiency in English by maintaining a 77% or greater pass rate on the end of the year SOL test. Our kindergarten and first grade students do not take the SOL test, instead they are administered the PALS End of the Year Assessment.  In alignment with SOL standards, based on our student’s end of the PALS assessment for the 2014-2015 school year, students will demonstrate proficiency in English by achieving an 84% or greater pass rate by the end of the 2015-2016 school year.  To achieve state and federal (AMO) requirements, this number will increase to 78% by the end of the 2016-2017 school year, and the Lebanon Primary School PALS requirement will increase to 85%.  Students within the disability subgroup will achieve a 65% pass rate on the end of the year benchmark assessment. 
Math Goal:

To achieve state and federal (AMO) requirements, students will demonstrate proficiency in Math by maintaining a 72% or greater pass rate on the end of the year SOL test. Our kindergarten and first grade students do not take the SOL test, instead they are administered the End of the Year Harcourt Mifflin Math Assessment.  In alignment with SOL standards, based on our student’s end of the year math assessment for the 2014-2015 school year, students will demonstrate proficiency in math by achieving a 96% or greater pass rate by the end of the 2015-2016 school year.  To achieve state and federal (AMO) requirements, this number will increase to 73% by the end of the 2016-2017 school year, and the Lebanon Primary School math goal will increase to 97%.
