  • A COACHS PLAN: GRADES PRE-K - KBecause we know that in SeptemberOnly 31% of kindergarten students knew all 26 upper case letters;Only 5% of kindergarten students knew all 26 lower case letters; Only 13% of kindergarten students knew all 20 beginning consonant sounds;17 four-year-olds are currently classified; 8 more are being evaluated.And we also know thatOur expectation is that all kindergarten students enter 1st Grade reading at least at a Level E-F in the Guided Reading Program;

    Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and assessments have been drastically changed to demand more rigor, and a deeper understanding and application of skills, abilities and knowledge

  • RECOMMENDATION

    Maintain 2 Pre-K teachers until Spring enrollment, then adjust.

    Add 1 Section of Kindergarten due to an increase in enrollment

    Add 2 PCAs (Personal Care Aides)OUTCOME

    5 Sections of K = 100(18, 18, 21, 21, 22)(Not Including Retentions)

    100 / 4 Sections = 25 (Not in compliance with the contract)

  • A COACHS PLAN: GRADES 1 - 4Because we know that We have one remedial math teacher who works with children in Grades 3 and 4 only;

    On BEDS Day 2010, we had 71 children ages 6-11 identified as SWDs; on BEDS Day 2011 that number increased to 88 (20% increase). Since October 2011, SWDs in this age group have increased to 92, with 8 pending placements.

    From 2007 2009, the AVERAGE of our SWDs in Grades 3-8 who were NOT proficient on ELA Assessments was 64% From 2010 2011, that percentage increased to 86%.

    From 2007 2009, the AVERAGE of our SWDs in Grades 3-8 who were NOT proficient on MATH Assessments was 49%. From 2010 2011, that percentage increased to 79%.

  • Because we know that

    With the addition of one more grade level to Newfane El., there are 130 additional students served in the cafeteria.

    And we also know that

    Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and assessments have been drastically changed to demand more rigor, and a deeper understanding and application of skills, abilities and knowledge

  • RECOMMENDATION

    Grade 1 = 5 Sections(No Change)

    Grade 2 = 5 Sections(Reduce by 1 Section)

    Grade 3 = 6 Sections(Increase by 1 Section)

    OUTCOME

    5 Sections of Grade 1 = (18, 18, 18, 19, 19)4 Sections of Grade 1 = (23, 23, 23, 23)

    5 Sections of Grade 2 = (18, 19, 20, 21, 21)4 Sections of Grade 2 = (24, 25, 25, 25)

    6 Sections of Grade 3 =(19, 22, 22, 22, 23, 23)5 Sections of Gr. 3 = (26, 26, 26, 27, 27)
