Here are some highlights:




Academic Excellence and Early Learning:  Although each SMART goal is different and aligns to a specific Tacoma School District goal, an effort was made to narrow the focus and align strategies for a more targeted approach so there were less than six big initiatives.

Academic Excellence Target Area:  Reading for 5th Grade Students:  

Our Current Reality: 6 out of 42 students (14.2%) in: 6 out of 42 students (14.2%) in 5th grade met standard on the ELA SBA. 9 students were identified at level 2 on the ELA SBA.

Our SMART Goal: : 32 out of 45 (70%) students in 5th grade will meet standard on the ELA SBA.


Academic Excellence Target Area:  School Wide Attendance:  

Our Current Reality:  89% of our Kindergarten students attend school daily.  Larchmont Elementary's overall daily attendance is 92.5%.

Our SMART Goal:  95% of Larchmont students will attend school daily.


Early Learning Target Areas:  Reading for 2nd Grade Students:  

Our Current Reality:  9 out of 45 (20%) of second grade students were identified as on or above grade level on the Fall 2017 i-Ready ELA Assessment.

Our SMART Goal:  :  32 out of 45 (70%)  students in second grade will score on or above on the Spring 2018 i-Ready ELA Assessment   

Area of Focus:   Our focus for this year is ELA prioritization and using quality formative assessments, both of these through the lens of intentional planning. 




Our Current Reality:  Larchmont Elementary has 24 community partnerships.  Registered school volunteer data is limited from the previous years.

SMART Goal:  The number of registered parent volunteers/community members will be 75 members strong by June 17, 2018 as measured by the number of registered volunteers/community members on June 17, 2018.


Safety:  To create and maintain safe learning environments that promote academic



Target Areas Time and Place:

Our Current Reality:  There were 53 discipline referrals written between the hours of 11:00 -  2:00 p.m. during the 2016-2017 school year.  There were 32 referrals written outside of that time frame.  62% of the referrals were written in the classroom.  Accuracy of this data is in question due to shift in administration during the 2016 - 2017 school year.

​​​Our SMART Goal:  The number of discipline referrals to the office will be less than 40 as measured by data collected on June 17, 2108.
