SCHOOL LAND TRUST FINAL REPORT FOR THE 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR

GOAL

Students will improve their reading and math skills as evidenced by increased reading fluency, improved reading comprehension, and a greater ability to solve math problems.

MEASUREMENT OF GOAL 

1. The percentage of Fairview students in the proficient range (3 or 4) for language arts on the SAGE test will be 3 percentage points higher than the average proficiency level for all Utah State students.

2. 80% of students will read at benchmark as defined and measured by the DIBELS end-of-year test.

3. The percentage of Fairview students in the proficient range (3 or 4) for math on the SAGE test will be 4 percentage points higher than the average proficiency level for all Utah State students.

4. The STAR Reading and STAR Math norm-referenced assessments will indicate progress as evidenced by increased average national percentile scores from beginning of school year to end of school year.

PLEASE SHOW THE BEFORE AND AFTER MEASUREMENTS AND HOW ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE WAS IMPROVED

The percent proficient in Language Arts for all Utah Students as assessed by the SAGE Summative was 44.1% in the 2015/2016 school year. Fairview Elementary had 52% of students proficient. Fairview was 7.9% higher than the state. We are above our goal of 3% higher than the State of Utah.

Fairview Elementary had 78% of students reading at benchmark as defined and measured by the composite score on the DIBELS end-of-year assessment. We did not reach the goal and still have some work to do in that area.

The percent proficient in Math for all Utah Students as assessed by the SAGE Summative was 46.1% in the 2015/2016 school year. Fairview Elementary had 58.8% of students proficient. Fairview was 12.7% higher than the state. We achieved higher than our 3% goal.

RESOURCES PURCHASED

1. Additional Teacher Assistants will provide direct support for reading, math, and technology.

2. Additional iPad minis will be purchased to increase computer access to reading and math software for students in grades K-2.

3. Additional software and needed hardware (LCD projectors, document cameras, classroom PA system, etc.) will be purchased to improve instruction.
