Oskaloosa Community SchoolsAddressing Student Needs+The Picture of Oskaloosa CSDMiddle School and High School SINA 4 and SINA 6 Buildings. Elementary on Watch List first year (subgroups)Professional Development was 1 early release per month with full day PD opportunities during the year. Each building had their own focus.Little collaboration taking place some did, others did notIowa Core had not been implemented consistentlyInconsistency from classroom to classroom what, how and how assessedGaps existed in skills for Math and ReadingDistrict self reports improper use of test booklets DE does not investigate

+The Picture of Oskaloosa CSD2 Main goals: (1) Build Leadership Capacity and (2) Increase capacity of teachers to have sustained and continuous improvementIowa Core implementation Grade Level Benchmarks and Components created 5 year cycle createdPLC Approach to Professional Development in place early release days incorporated into schedule collaboration and focused professional developmentPLC Facilitators (District and Building level teams)District Leadership Team established (DLT) as part of Iowa Core implementation requirementsStandards-Based Grading Learning Supports identified to assist students not meeting district level expectations (1s and 2s) Predictive of Proficiency?+The Picture of Oskaloosa CSDIn the meantime, the state initiatives are changingIowa Core implementation The Iowa Core and the Common Core merge MUCH more rigorous expectations for our students (Shifts in ELA and Math)Additional gaps in student skills are exposedInstruction does NOT match level of Iowa Core!Iowa Assessments instead of ITBS/ITED - NSS instead of %tile rank (2011-2012)RtI becomes a state focus to address gaps across the statePLC Approach to Professional Development State identifies collaboration expectations for districts Oskaloosa looked to for PLC direction by other districts

+The Picture of Oskaloosa CSDIn the meantime, the state initiatives are changingMS and HS continue on SINA Path Project-Based Learning pursuedAssist with gaps in instruction and rigorElementary becomes SINA (IEP and F/R)SINA Team completes a gap analysis to find reason for statusPrograms versus Quality Instruction was identified by Support Team (AEA and State) as an issue in OskaloosaWe are directed to focus on increasing the quality of instruction rather than turning to a programSmall Group Instruction chosen as consistent, quality, research-based approach (Readers Workshop)+The Picture of Oskaloosa CSDSINA Plan determined by teacher team (SINA 2 Requirements)Small Group Instruction Readers and Writers Workshop assists ALL students and helps identify struggling students more effectively.Instructional Coach hired to assist with this processDemonstration classrooms createdAngela Maiers expertise soughtQuality instruction and consistency between classrooms is our goal

SINA 3 Requirements: In addition to Year 2 - Restructuring Schedule at Elementary shifted to include reading and writing blocksBlock of time for interventions (Tier 2 and Tier 3)Intervention Coach K-3 is hired to help problem-solve and be proactiveSWAT Teams formed to analyze data and identify areas of concern in core instruction

Shows growth in students and is aligned to Iowa Core.

+Oskaloosa PerformanceWhat we know the data suggests:The 1st two years of Iowa Assessments both 3rd and 4th grade did not perform at a high levelWe have inconsistent performance for IEP students historicallyF/R rate has increased by over 200 studentsSome grades do well one year and not as well the next year. The data suggests a system consistency issue3rd and 4th grade while not a trend, it is an indication of an issueDisconnect between GLBs and InstructionAimsweb, consistent assessments, Iowa Core shifts Some years we performed higher than the state or AEA, others we did notSystem inconsistency
