4 Executive Summary SY Page 1

5 Introduction Every school has its own story to tell. The context in which teaching and learning takes place influences the processes and procedures by which the school makes decisions around curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The context also impacts the way a school stays faithful to its vision. Many factors contribute to the overall narrative such as an identification of stakeholders, a description of stakeholder engagement, the trends and issues affecting the school, and the kinds of programs and services that a school implements to support student learning. <br><br> The purpose of the Executive Summary (ES) is to provide a school with an opportunity to describe in narrative form the strengths and challenges it encounters. By doing so, the public and members of the school community will have a more complete picture of how the school perceives itself and the process of self-reflection for continuous improvement. This summary is structured for the school to reflect on how it provides teaching and learning on a day to day basis. SY Page 2

6 Description of the School Describe the school's size, community/communities, location, and changes it has experienced in the last three years. Include demographic information about the students, staff, and community at large. What unique features and challenges are associated with the community/communities the school serves? is an urban city school in the southeastern section of Florida. The community breakdown is: majority Hispanic, follwed by White, with the minority of the population being African American and Asian. The elementary school is a pre-kindergarten through fifth grade school. The total school population consists of 784 students in The ethnic racial background of the student population is 83.5 percent Hispanic, 7.7 percent White, 3.9 percent Black, and 4.9 percent Asian/Indian/Multicultural. Of this population, 24 percent are English Language Learners (ELL) and 44 percent receive free or reduced lunch. Additionally, 18 percent of the populations are students with disabilities (SWD). The ethnic racial background of the teachers is: majority Hispanic, followed by White, African-American and Asian. During the past three years, our SWD population has grown as we have become an Autistic Student Center (ASD), where we house 5 fulltime units, and 44 percent of the ASD students are on modified curriculum. Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten are housed at the Primary Learning Center (PLC), which is adjacent to the main campus, where students in grades 1-5 are housed. The school consists of 58 classroom teachers; 100% receiving effective rating or higher, 87% Highly Qualified (HQT), 74% ESOL endorsed, 5% reading endorsed, 39% with advanced degrees, 5% National Board Certified, 64% with 15 or more years of experience.

7 School's Purpose Provide the school's purpose statement and ancillary content such as mission, vision, values, and/or beliefs. Describe how the school embodies its purpose through its program offerings and expectations for students. School's Principal/Assistant Principal provide a common vision for the school. This vision includes the implementation of a systematic plan of action that consists of input from all stakeholders. The plan includes learning objectives, measurable goals, quantitative/qualitative benchmarks, best practices, and other strategies that support the overall foundational use of data-based decision-making. In addition, the plan ensures that the school-based team is implementing RtI objectives with fidelity. Lastly, the plan facilitates implementation of intervention support and documentation ensures appropriate professional development to support remediation strategies. Moreover, our school is a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) school. Hands-on activities allow students to design and develop science and engineering projects which increase scientific thinking. Inquiry-based activities allow for testing of hypothesis, data analysis, explanation of variables and experimental design. All of our classrooms have computer/projector capabilities and several other classrooms have been retrofitted with SMARTBoards or Mimeo devices, which are all highly interactive, engaging and productive educational experiences. School envisions every child to be a lifelong learner who is a responsible, productive, and caring citizen. It is our mission to create an environment that focuses on the child's strengths, to motivate parents, teachers, administrators, and noninstructional personnel to believe that, in "The School of Discovery," all children are allowed to explore the depths of their potential; and to create an environment for learning where every child succeeds. Students with Disabilities (SWD) are placed in the least restrictive setting based on their Individual Educational Plans (IEP). Students who are on a modified curriculum are taught in a self-contained classroom with highly qualified teachers. Those who are on a standard curriculum are either serviced in a resource setting for Reading/Language Arts and/or Mathematics, or in a general education classroom with a Special Education Teacher (SPED) offering consultation support to the general education teacher.

8 Notable Achievements and Areas of Improvement Describe the school's notable achievements and areas of improvement in the last three years. Additionally, describe areas for improvement that the school is striving to achieve in the next three years. We continue to work diligently on improving student achievement through our pull out intervention programs in reading and math. Students are pulled out from grades K-5 during their special area classes; at which time, a certified teacher works in small groups on targeted skills using the Wonderworks Intervention Program. Several teachers voluntarily hold before school tutoring sessions, where students utilize the Success Maker Program to reinforce reading and/or mathematics. The Accelerated Reader (AR) program is in place for students in grades Kindergarten through fifth grade. Students read books at their designated reading level, and then take a comprehension/vocabulary test to determine level of understanding. Prizes are issued monthly to those who meet their goals. The following are award and recognition programs our school participates in: The District Science Fair, Hispanic Heritage, Black History Oratorical Contest, Cuba Nostalgia, PTA Reflections, Miami-Dade County Honors Orchestra and Dan Marino Walkabout for Autism Awareness. School was awarded monetarily by "Reading Plus" during the school year for achieving the third highest amount of passages read district wide. The top three readers in the school were awarded with gift cards. The Dan Marino Foundation awarded School with $ due to participation in the 2013 Dan Marino WalkAbout for Autism. The money was used to purchase additional technology devices to enhance teaching and learning within the (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) ASD program. Areas of Improvement: Efforts are being made to increase the number of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) related experiences provided for students. Field Trips are planned strategically to provide students with additional hands-on Science involvement. Parent Participation is being targeted during the school year. Communication has been increased as grade level newsletters provide parents with details of monthly curriculum updates. Many teachers are communicating with parents via . The School Web site is updated frequently to ensure parents are kept up to date with school happenings. With Social Media taking center stage, it is the goal for teachers to begin communicating online more consistently through Teacher/Classroom web sites. SY Page 5

Our school provides comprehensive services to staff and students in accordance with our school mission statement. The District Allocation Plan and Position Control Report are used for the hiring, placement and retention of professional and support staff. Protected Instructional time is highly valued. In house activities as well as field trips are educational in nature and offered to all students regardless of their academic standing or economic status. The vision of the school is for all teachers to have all needed resources in order to be successful in the instructional arena. The master schedule is in compliance with state/district mandates. Safety, cleanliness and a healthy environment are defined by the leadership of the school as top priority. All school personnel are accountable for maintaining these expectations. A school wide arrival and dismissal plan are in place and all faculty members are assigned strategic responsibilities to guarantee supervision throughout the school site. EESAC members review the budget annually. Technology implementation is in place throughout all grade levels. Two technology labs are available to all students including those who stay for the after-school care program. A technology upgrade is projected to transpire in the upcoming months. This upgrade will provide school wide wireless access to all faculty and students. The student services department provides support to all students in the area of counseling, assessment, referrals, educational and career planning needs. A career fair is held annually, and several local agencies provide educational support throughout the school year such as a DARE Officer, Guest Readers, Middle School Articulation Representatives, and various presenters through the KAPOW program. All grades levels are taken on field trips for additional growth opportunities. As indicated in standard 4.5, stakeholders feel the technology infrastructure is not adequate to meet instructional needs. The school is slated SY Page 23

27 for an upgrade during the fiscal year. Wireless technology will be in place schoolwide. As indicated in standard 4.6, stakeholders felt additional measures need to be in place to ensure students physical, social and emotional needs are met. Morning announcements are used to facilitate "Core Value" initiatives. As indicated in standard 4.7, more emphasis needs to be placed on student services. The guidance counselor will appear routinely on morning announcements to pledge support for the district "Core Value" initiative. SY Page 24
