5 Describe your school's strategies to recruit and retain highly qualified, certified-in-field, effective teachers to the school; include the person responsible. Imagine Schools prides itself on its selection/recruitment of the highest quality instructional personnel. Currently, the entire staff at Imagine Nau is fully certified and in-field and only six teachers are still working on achieving High Quality status. From to , the turnover of instructional personnel was over fifty percent. Empowering these teachers through the Imagine Shared Values philosophy, as well as a commitment by the current principal to serve for more than one year, will improve retention. The person responsible for teacher recruitment and retention is the principal, John P. Drag, Jr. Mr. Drag's retention rate of instructional personnel from his previous schools is over 95%. Teacher Mentoring Program/Plan This section meets the requirements of Sections 1114(b)(1)(D) and 1115(c)(1)(F), P.L , NCLB, codified at 20 U.S.C. 6314(b). Describe your school's teacher mentoring program/plan including the rationale for pairings and the planned mentoring activities Mentors are assigned usually in the same grade level as the beginning teacher. Despite over fifty percent turnover of staff, at least one teacher at each grade level remained for the school year. It is these "veterans" that we tap as mentors. The Instructional Coach is assigned the overall responsibility of tracking new educators to ensure they are appropriately indoctrinated and supported. Monthly meetings with a specific topic are held for the benefit of all - voluntary for experienced teachers, but attendance is encouraged. Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) / Response to Intervention (RtI) This section meets the requirements of Sections 1114(b)(1)(B)(i)-(iv) and 1115(c)(1)(A)-(C), P.L , NCLB, codified at 20 U.S.C. 6314(b). Describe your school's data-based problem-solving processes for the implementation and monitoring of your MTSS and SIP structures to address effectiveness of core instruction, resource allocation (funding and staffing), teacher support systems, and small group and individual student needs We utilize a continuous improvement model (CIM) to assess MTSS and SIP structures. It is formative in nature. End of the year discussion is also conducted when state test results are analyzed. All students are identified as to their needs and placed in the appropriate tier level. A pullout teacher works with Tier 2 and 3 students in reading on a weekly basis. What is the function and responsibility of each school-based leadership team member as related to the school's MTSS and the SIP? Each member of the school-based leadership team is responsible for MTSS and its connections to school improvement as both are connected. Analyzing the data may suggest that earlier identification of students for RtI may be necessary and/or additional training of instructional personnel is required. Describe the systems in place that the leadership team uses to monitor the fidelity of the school's MTSS and SIP The leadership team monitors the fidelity of the school's MTSS and SIP through constant review of the SIP and by attending MTSS meetings. Moreover, the Principal discusses the MTSS process and RtI through informal discussions with instructional personnel. Describe the data source(s) and management system(s) used to access and analyze data to monitor the effectiveness of core, supplemental, and intensive supports in reading, mathematics, science, writing, and engagement (e.g., behavior, attendance) PMRN, FLDOE for FCAT data, and Imagine Schools for SAT data (twice a year) through "Ready Results." All state data (to include behavior and attendance) is in Skyward (St. Lucie County Schools) Page 5 of 29 Last Modified: 10/11/2013

6 and Imagine Nau has contracted Performance Matters (data management/analysis program) to access that data. Describe the plan to support understanding of MTSS and build capacity in data-based problem solving for staff and parents Conduct continued professional development on MTSS and publish all related documents (manuals, etc.) on the T-Drive. Conduct a training session for parents. Provide links on school website for information (pdf) and links (URLs) for additional information and resources. Increased Learning Time/Extended Learning Opportunities This section meets the requirements of Sections 1114(b)(1)(B)(ii)(II)-(III), 1114(b)(1)(I), and 1115(c)(1)(C)(i) and 1115(c)(2), P.L , NCLB, codified at 20 U.S.C. 6314(b). Research-based strategies the school uses to increase the amount and quality of learning time and help provide an enriched and accelerated curriculum: Strategy: Weekend Program Minutes added to school year: 720 Strategy Purpose(s) Instruction in core academic subjects, Teacher collaboration, planning and professional development Strategy Description Beginning in January, "Saturday FCAT Camp" for students matched to their need - writing, reading, math, and science. How is data collected and analyzed to determine the effectiveness of this strategy? All students will be given a pre and post test. We will also compare scores of students who attended Saturday FCAT Camp versus those that did not. Who is responsible for monitoring implementation of this strategy? Principal and Instructional Coach Strategy: Before or After School Program Minutes added to school year: 21,600 Strategy Purpose(s) Instruction in core academic subjects, Teacher collaboration, planning and professional development Strategy Description Homework assistance for all students. How is data collected and analyzed to determine the effectiveness of this strategy? Student achievement data is analyzed and compared with students in After Care and those that are not. Who is responsible for monitoring implementation of this strategy? Principal, After Care Coordinator, and Instructional Coach Page 6 of 29 Last Modified: 10/11/2013

7 Strategy: Extended Day for All Students Minutes added to school year: 5,400 Strategy Purpose(s) Instruction in core academic subjects Strategy Description Imagine Nau's K-8 educational program runs from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM. An extra thirty minutes allows teachers additional time for core academic subjects. How is data collected and analyzed to determine the effectiveness of this strategy? Data will be collected this year and analyzed so as to ascertain the benefit of an extended day. Who is responsible for monitoring implementation of this strategy? Principal, Instructional Coach, Student Data Manager Literacy Leadership Team (LLT) Names and position titles of the members of the school-based LLT Name John P. Drag, Jr. Vernesha Swoope Erin Ritter Jonathan Oglio Daniel Roberts Title Principal Instructional Coach Kindergarten Teacher ESE Specialist Middle School Reading Teacher Describe how the school-based LLT functions (e.g., meeting processes, roles, functions) Imagine Nau LLT will meet monthly to assess the effectiveness of existing programs and discuss the reading progress for all students. Members of the Academic Growth Committee will supplement the membership of the LLT. The actual LLT itself is comprised of 3/5 members that are Reading Endorsed. What will be the major initiatives of the LLT this year? Coordinate the purchase of a new basal reading series (Houghton Mifflin Journeys) for students in grades K-6. Provide professional development for same and continued checks for fidelity in implementation. Implement a research based, technology-supported reading program for students in intensive reading (middle school). Coordinate the purchase of reading intervention materials and a research based, technologysupported reading program for students in intensive reading, grades 3-5 (FCAT levels 1 and 2). Full implementation of The Daily Five and The Cafe Book throughout K-5 classrooms. Every Teacher Contributes to Reading Instruction Describe how the school ensures every teacher contributes to the reading improvement of every student Imagine Nau first ensures that every teacher contributes to the reading improvement of every student through mandatory professional development in reading - from use of the approved basal to additional elements of the school's reading program, e.g. The Daily Five and The Cafe Book. Every teacher is required to know the current level of performance in reading for each student. The teacher maintains a Data Binder for the class that contains individual performance data. Each teacher conducts Data Page 7 of 29 Last Modified: 10/11/2013

8 Chats with students and shares this information with parents. The Principal and Instructional Coach (with input from the LLT) review professional development needs for teachers and provide training as necessary. Finally, the LLT ensures that all elementary teachers are following the St. Lucie Public Schools K-5 Integrated Literacy Routine and all K-8 teachers are knowledgeable regarding the St. Lucie County Public Schools Reading Plan. Preschool Transition This section meets the requirements of Sections 1114(b)(1)(G) and 1115(c)(1)(D), P.L , NCLB, codified at 20 U.S.C. 6314(b). Describe strategies for assisting preschool children in transition from early childhood programs to local elementary school programs, as applicable Imagine Nau is fortunate to have a Pre-K and VPK program as part of its campus. One strategy used for assisting preschool children in transition from early childhood programs to local elementary school programs is the simple inclusion of preschool staff in all K-8 school operations. There is an apparent and intentional demonstration of inclusion of our Pre-K and VPK students into the K-8 program - from assemblies to fund-raising efforts. Vertical teaming will occur with our kindergarten teachers and the Pre-K and VPK teachers to ensure that standards are discussed and students in the early years are "readied" to handle the academic, social, and emotional requirements of elementary school. College and Career Readiness This section meets the requirements of Sections 1114(b)(1)(B)(iii)(I)(aa)-(cc), P.L , NCLB, codified at 20 U.S.C. 6314(b). How does the school incorporate applied and integrated courses to help students see the relationships between subjects and relevance to their future? Imagine Nau incorporates real world application through project-based learning and scenarios. Middle school students utilize Executive Functions (curriculum through School Speciality) as part of their Critical Thinking class. How does the school promote academic and career planning, including advising on course selections, so that each student's course of study is personally meaningful? Students complete interest surveys so teachers can better make learning more meaningful. Describe strategies for improving student readiness for the public postsecondary level based on annual analysis of the High School Feedback Report, which is maintained by the Department of Education, pursuant to Rule 6A , F.A.C 1. Prepare students earlier via 2. Gear curriculum to higher-level/project based learning which provide real world application. Page 8 of 29 Last Modified: 10/11/2013
