Larchmont Elementary Improvement Goals:

 

 

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.

 

EARLY LEARNING TARGET AREAS: Math for 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Students

Our Current READING Reality:

  • 24% of 3rd grade students met standard on the 2017 Fall Reading I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.

  • 25% of 4th grade students met standard on the 2017 Fall Reading I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.

  • 12% of 5th grade students met standard on the 2017 Fall Reading I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.

 

Our READING SMART Goal: 70% of students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade will perform on or above level on the 2018 Spring Reading I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.

Our Current MATH Reality:

  • 9% of 3rd grade students met standard on the 2017 Fall Math I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.
  • 17% of 4th grade students met standard on the 2017 Fall Math I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.

  • 8% of 5th grade students met standard on the 2017 Fall Math I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.

 Our MATH SMART Goal: 70% of students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade will perform on or above level on the 2018 Spring Math I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.

Our Current READING Reality:

  • 13% of 1stgrade students met standard on the 2017 Fall Reading I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.
  • 23% of 2nd grade students met standard on the 2017 Fall Reading I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.

 

Our READING SMART Goal: 70% of students in 1st and 2nd grade will score on or above on the Spring 2018 I-Ready Reading Assessment. 70% of Kindergarten students will meet or exceed level 4 on the DRA in the Spring.

 

Our Current MATH Reality:

  • 43% of Kindergarten grade students met standard on the 2016 Spring Math I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.
  • 4% of 1st grade students met standard on the 2017 Fall Math I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.

  • 10% of 2nd grade students met standard on the 2017 Fall Math I-Ready Diagnostic Assessment.

 

Our MATH SMART Goal: 70% of students in K, 1st, and 2nd grade will score on or above level on the Spring 2018 I-Ready Math Assessment.

 

Area of Focus: Our focus for this year is standards based instructional planning (ELA Prioritization) using quality formative assessments in both Math and Reading.

PARTNERSHIPS:   

SMART GOALS:

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 achievement:

 

 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.
