North Boulevard School
  • Third Quarter Report
  • May 11, 2007

2
Key Accomplishments for the Third Quarter
2006-2007
  • Data Driven Instruction (DDI) continues to be the
    focus for the administration, teachers, support
    staff, students and parents of NBS. Plans for
    student achievement profiles were begun in the
    third quarter and an action plan rubric is being
    developed by the NBS Implementation Team for DDI
    in the fourth quarter.
  • Data sets in the student achievement profile
    include
  • SRI, Pequannock Benchmarks, Term marks,
    Standardized Tests, Curricular Program
    Assessments, teacher recommendations
  • A direct result of DDI was the increased
    re-grouping of students into non-graded flexible
    ability groups based on SRI test results. Two
    additional reading workshop reading groups were
    added during the third quarter. The District SRI
    Committee continued to help our staff improve the
    NBS practice reading program and ensure
    consistency of program in the elementary schools.
  • Mrs. Deirdre Schmitt, Reading specialist, modeled
    15 lessons that focused on reading comprehension
    strategies and using data to improve instruction.
    All Lessons were based upon the research in
    Strategies That Work.
  • Mr. Michael Foglyano, Math and Literacy Skills
    teacher (MLSP), met with teachers and the
    principal to share the results of the third
    Benchmark Test. Michael met with staff 9 times
    to help them utilize individual student, class
    and grade-level item analyses in their planning.
  • Individual, class and grade level action plans
    developed in December/January by the PLCs were
    implemented in the second and third quarters to
    address needs for remediation and enrichment
    leading to the State Testing program in March of
    2007.
  • MLSP and Reading Specialist implemented weekly
    Drop Everything and Write language
    arts/mathematics writing prompts in grades 3-5
    from the end of the second quarter to NJ Ask
    Testing in March. All grade 3-5 teachers planned
    and taught test-awareness lessons in the same
    period. NJ Ask results for this targeted group
    of students will be reviewed to assess program
    success rates and to establish benchmarks for
    07-08.
  • Grade two teachers, Mrs. Callan, Mrs. Ulrich and
    Mrs. Van Ness, planned and taught New Jersey Pass
    test awareness lessons for their students in the
    weeks before the standard test.

3
Key Accomplishments, Continued.
  • Character Education Committee The Committee,
    chaired by Mrs. Leslie Ulrich, has completed or
    will complete nine grade level or school-wide
    service learning projects early in the fourth
    quarter, including Polar Express Wrapping
    Project, Grade Two Food Pantry Donation, Paterson
    Coat Drive, Kinders Care Bracelet Sale/Food
    Shopping project, Fourth Grade Bear Hugs for the
    Holidays Donation, Amaryllis Planting with Cedar
    Crest Seniors, Grade Three Walkathons to benefit
    diabetes research, the first grade collection for
    the Pequannock Animal Shelter and the Fifth Grade
    NBS Beautification Project. The NBS staff
    collected 2455 for the Walk for Life cancer
    benefit. The estimated monetary value of all
    donations by the service projects to charity or
    the NBS community is over 10,000. Individual
    classroom service projects have been completed in
    every grade.
  • Four parent meetings were held in the third
    quarter with the NBS Home and School Association
    and the parents were advised all major third
    quarter activities.
  • Discussions were begun in the third quarter to
    reconfigure the special education programs
    located at NBS. Eight meetings were held with
    the SNAPP education staff and the school
    principal to ensure a smooth transition to the
    two teacher collaboration model. The NBS
    community welcomed Mrs. Jackie Kypers as the new
    SNAPP teacher.
  • NBS Power Hour for special education students was
    completed in the third quarter. The NJ Ask
    results for this targeted group of students will
    be reviewed to assess program success rates and
    to establish benchmarks for 07-08.

4
Key Learning for the Third Quarter
  • NBS staff has been observed using data driven
    instruction techniques (achievement profiles and
    action plans for concern list students) when
    making key decisions related to student
    achievement and program adjustment.
  • 20 lessons were formally observed when teachers
    were using Strategies That Work to improve
    reading Lexile 45 strategies. This is an
    increase of 16 lessons over Q2. The increase is
    a result of a more defined supportive supervision
    program put in place during the third quarter
    that emphasized this content.
  • North Boulevard Grade level PLCs were very
    active during the third quarter. All grade level
    communities met weekly to develop consistent
    plans for standardized test preparation,
    character education and best practice in the
    reading workshop lexile groups. Common
    planning activities are documented in staff
    plan-books that are reviewed by the principal
    every two weeks.
  • Achievement profiles of concern list students
    that were developed in the second and the third
    quarters will serve as the model to demonstrate
    the level of correlation between profile
    components and term marks. This information will
    be shared with staff in the fourth quarter as
    part of the data driven instruction (DDI)
    initiative pilot.
  • MLSP and Reading Lab support was increased for
    five students in response to data analysis and
    parent/teacher concerns.

5
Key Learning for the Third Quarter
  • Course content and essential skills were in
    better synchronization during the third quarter.
    Emphasis on drop everything and write,
    mathematics reviews and reading/writing for a
    purpose were implemented in grades three through
    five.
  • Formal observations for all staff were completed
    in the third quarter. Informal drop-ins with
    feedback to teachers continue to encourage
    frequent use of cooperative learning, engaging
    reading instruction strategies and higher forms
    of teacher/student questions have raised
    expectations in these important areas.
  • Access to the EMC and the gymnasium during recess
    time began in the third quarter. This limited
    access gave rise to a 2007-2008 Implementation
    Team for Master Schedule improvements to provide
    daily access to the EMC and gymnasium in the
    coming school year.
  • The third quarter term mark posting on K-12
    Planet was accomplished with minimal problems.
    This process continues to help teachers learn
    some essential technology skills quickly to meet
    district deadlines. Greater collaboration
    between staff has been observed as they support
    each other in this effort.

6
Key Learning for the Third Quarter
  • North Boulevards Aggregate LA/Mathematics Result
    Ranking on the NJ Ask 2006 as compared to all
    elementary schools in the state fell from a 2005
    ranking of 314 overall to a ranking of 417.
    Staff was informed of this fact during the third
    quarter and it was decided that this annual
    analysis of rankings will become part of the
    annual DDI.
  • Benchmark results were shared with 3-5 teachers
    with improved analysis of grade level strengths
    and areas needing improvement. Mr. Michael
    Foglyano, the new MLSP teacher, met with grade
    levels 6 times to share the percentage results
    and individual item analysis.
  • Benchmark results in grades 3-5 showed
    significant increases in advanced proficiency.
    Language arts increased 37 and mathematics
    increased 27. All three benchmark tests have
    shown greater advanced proficiency which is a
    very encouraging trend.
  • SRI results were shared with all staff by Mrs.
    Deirdre Schmitt, reading specialist. Again the
    percentage of advanced proficient students
    increased significantly. Q2 advanced proficiency
    was 22.75 while Q3 advanced proficiency was
    29.1
  • Parents played a significant role in the Master
    Schedule Improvement Initiative that was begun in
    the third quarter. The NBS Home and School
    Association has been supportive of a common
    lunch/recess time and planned a resolution that
    will support significant H.S.A. funding of a new
    playground on the north side of . The new
    playground is considered essential to success of
    this initiative and the parents of NBS are
    considering donating the majority of the cost of
    this project.

Achievement Goals for 2006-2007
Objective 1 Language Arts Grade 3 test scores
increases in 2006-2007 by 7.8 Advanced
Proficient. Grade 3 Baseline 2005-2006
40.0. Grade 3 2006-2007 target increase 47.8.
Objective 2 Language Arts Grade 4 test
scores increases in 2006-2007 7.8 Advanced
Proficient. Grade 4 Baseline 2005-2006
54.9. Grade 4 2006-2007 target increase 62.7.
  • Third Quarter Actions
  • Better Use of Instructional Time The NBS Master
    Schedule (MS) continued to utilize instructional
    time more efficiently during the third quarter.
    Schedule adjustments (Drop everything and) in
    the month leading to the NJ Ask 3-4 and 5
    resulted in an additional 35 hours (on average)
    of targeted instruction driven by DDI (data
    driven instruction). Improvements in student
    achievement on benchmark tests were significant
    in the third quarter.
  • Children were re-grouped according to their
    lexile score and two additional lexile groups
    were added in the third quarter. Increases in
    SRI advanced proficiency were significant in the
    third quarter.

8
Achievement Goals, continued
  • Third Quarter Actions Continued.
  • DDI The PLCs, reading specialist and the MLSP
    teacher developed individual instructional plans
    for the students on the reading /language arts
    and mathematics content concern lists (low
    proficient or partially proficient standard test
    scores) in grades three, four and five in the
    second quarter and these plans were acted on in
    quarter three. The watch and concern lists of
    students were refined by the third benchmark
    testing completed in March 2007. Classroom
    instruction decisions continued were informed by
    this data allowing teachers to re-teach or enrich
    skills as necessary for all students.
  • The NB Power Hour after school tutoring program
    (for targeted students) was completed in the
    third quarter. NJ Ask results for this targeted
    group of students will be reviewed to assess
    program success rates and to establish benchmarks
    for 07-08.

9
2006-2007 Program Development Goals
  • Organize Schools for Success
  • Three PLC meetings were held.
  • Topics included standardized test awareness
    planning, Master Schedule implementation, SRI
    implementation, Benchmark testing implementation,
    SRI groupings, and student behavior tracking.
  • Twenty active learning lessons were formally
    observed during the third quarter. Informal
    observations revealed frequent active engagement
    on a regular basis.
  • Staff development in cooperative/active
    instruction, higher order thinking, reading
    comprehension strategies and technology infusion
    continued in the third quarter through district
    workshops, reading specialist and MLSP teacher
    modeling and supportive supervision by the
    building principal.

10
2006-2007 Program Development Goals
  • Equip School with Sophisticated Learning Tools
  • Implement a Benchmark assessment system
  • Benchmark testing administered for the third time
    in the third quarter. Item analyses were
    distributed to all teachers to help staff develop
    individual, classroom and grade level
    instructional plans.
  • Deploy an expansive and inclusive technology
    program
  • Improved Web-presence continued in the third
    quarter. E-grades, SRI, Benchmark Assessments,
    United Streaming and many more examples of
    technological enhancements instruction were in
    evidence each day throughout the third quarter.
  • School website continued to include the school
    calendar, teacher welcome letters and progress
    toward school initiatives.

11
2006-2007 Program Development Goals
  • Usher in a new Partnership with Parents
  • The NBS Executive Board members were included in
    the NB Master Schedule Initiative begun in the
    third quarter. Two meetings with the Board
    confirmed their willingness to consider
    significant financial support for a new
    playground that is an essential part of this
    initiative.
  • Student grades and assignments via the internet
    continued to be available during the third
    quarter and parental feedback demonstrates
    positive support for this program.
  • The second elementary Win School report cards
    were distributed in March 2007.

12
2006-2007 Program Development Goals
  • Implement Teaching Methods that Motivate
  • Blooms taxonomy model was given to every
    teacher. Each formal lesson observed in the
    third quarter (20) addressed higher level
    questioning by the teacher and students.
    Teachers planned lessons that encouraged higher
    level thought. Observation of students by the
    principal continued to confirm students using
    higher level questions and responses.

13
2006-2007 Customer Satisfaction Goals
  • Four formal parent meetings were held in the
    third quarter. They included regular H.S.A.
    meetings and H.S.A. planning meetings.
  • Parents volunteered every day in the
    lunchroom/recess and in the EMC throughout the
    third quarter. Recess time access to the EMC and
    gymnasium began in the third quarter.
  • Parent volunteers worked with staff on three
    additional school and grade-level character
    education programs held throughout the third
    quarter bringing the years total to 9 programs.
  • Parent volunteers worked with staff on one
    grade-level music program and two H.S.A.
    enrichment programs throughout the third quarter.
  • Parent/visitor sign-in logs support the above
    activity throughout the third quarter.

14
Student Achievement for the Third Quarter
2006-2007
  • The third benchmark assessment was completed in
    March of 2007. A review of reading benchmarks
    shows significant increases for all students with
    a 41 scoring Advanced Proficient. A review of
    mathematics scores reveals an even higher
    percentage of students highly proficient with 62
    in this band.
  • The second SRI inventory was completed in January
    of 2007 followed by the third SRI inventory in
    March 2007. Results are as follows
  • Growth in average grade level (2-5) performance
    show an overall increase in Advanced Proficiency
    of 6 basis points from January to March.
  • The above growth represents a 40 increase in
    Advanced Proficiency.
  • Grade distributions by school, grades, and
    teachers The grade distributions by school,
    grade and teachers were consistent between the
    second and third quarters. Variations in the
    grade distributions between teachers at a grade
    level will be analyzed and addressed.
  • Success rates by school, grades, and teachers
    The results for the third quarter were again
    consistent with Q1 and Q2. Again, variations in
    the success rates between teachers at a grade
    level will be analyzed and addressed.
