At the Charter Schools of Excellence, we have established a community where teachers, parents, and students work together towards school year goals. Collecting data based on our students' performance and learning needs is an area in which we excel. At the beginning of each school year, we conduct a staff meeting to discuss data and develop SMART goals for the upcoming school year. We believe that a strong component to delivering effective instruction is knowing our students first. During the first week of the school year, teachers complete an informal survey to identify their students' learning styles. Once a month, the principal and teachers participate in data chats to discuss areas of strength and needs for development. Grade level teams participate in vertical planning to review grade level standards and skill progression for K-5.
Teachers have built their skills and knowledge base in using data to drive their instruction to ensure key expectations are mastered. Students are also provided the opportunity to be part of the data chat process. This involves students in the data analysis and gives them the opportunity to develop their personal learning goals and review their progress. We maintain a school culture that uses data to drive instruction by building a school community where everyone is involved in our students' success. During our Title I Meetings, parents are informed on ways they may support their child at home. A Data Wall is displayed to showcase our students' progress within each assessment period. Our school has implemented an I-Ready Challenge, where the class that has achieved the most learning gains, in the computer-based assessment program, receives the Class Trophy. Collaboration and teamwork is evident on campus. It is the key to maintaining a positive school environment where all stakeholders are able to plan together to accomplish school-wide plans.
