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.
