The RAISE program, pursuant to s. 1008.365, F.S, established criteria for identifying schools for additional support. The criteria for the 2023-24 school year includes schools with students in grades kindergarten through 5, where 50 percent or more of its students, for any grade level, score below a Level 3 on the most recent statewide, standardized ELA assessment; or progress monitoring data collected from the coordinated screening and progress monitoring system shows that 50 percent or more of its students are not on track to pass the statewide, standardized grade 3 assessment for any grade level, kindergarten through grade 3.
Include a description of your Area of Focus (Instructional Practice specifically relating to Reading/ELA) for each grade below, how it affects student learning in literacy, and a rationale that explains how it was identified as a critical need from the data reviewed. Data that should be used to determine the critical need should include, at a minimum:
- The percentage of students below Level 3 on the 2023 statewide, standardized ELA assessment. Identification criteria must include each grade that has 50 percent or more students scoring below Level 3 in grades 3-5 on the statewide, standardized ELA assessment.
- The percentage of students in kindergarten through grade 3, based on 2022-2023 coordinated screening and progress monitoring system data, who are not on track to score Level 3 or above on the statewide, standardized ELA assessment.
- Other forms of data that should be considered: formative, progress monitoring and diagnostic assessment data.
Grades K-2: Instructional Practice specifically relating to Reading/ELA
Grades 3-5: Instructional Practice specifically related to Reading/ELA
State the specific measurable outcome the school plans to achieve for each grade below. This should be a data-based, objective outcome. Include prior year data and a measurable outcome for each of the following:
- Each grade K -3, using the coordinated screening and progress monitoring system, where 50 percent or more of the students are not on track to pass the statewide ELA assessment;
- Each grade 3-5 where 50 percent or more of its students scored below a Level 3 on the most recent statewide, standardized ELA assessment; and
- Grade 6 measurable outcomes may be included, as applicable.
Grades K-2 Measurable Outcomes
Grades 3-5 Measurable Outcomes
Describe how the school’s Area(s) of Focus will be monitored for the desired outcomes. Include a description of how ongoing monitoring will impact student achievement outcomes.
Person Responsible for Monitoring Outcome
Enter the name of the person responsible for monitoring this outcome.
Describe the evidence-based practices/programs being implemented to achieve the measurable outcomes in each grade and describe how the identified practices/programs will be monitored. The term "evidence-based" means demonstrating a statistically significant effect on improving student outcomes or other relevant outcomes as provided in 20 U.S.C. §7801(21)(A)(i). Florida’s definition limits evidence-based practices/programs to only those with strong, moderate or promising levels of evidence.
- Do the identified evidence-based practices/programs meet Florida’s definition of evidence-based (strong, moderate or promising)?
- Do the evidence-based practices/programs align with the district’s K-12 Comprehensive Evidence-based Reading Plan?
- Do the evidence-based practices/programs align to the B.E.S.T. ELA Standards?
Explain the rationale for selecting practices/programs. Describe the resources/criteria used for selecting the practices/programs.
- Do the evidence-based practices/programs address the identified need?
- Do the identified evidence-based practices/programs show proven record of effectiveness for the target population?
List the action steps that will be taken to address the school’s Area(s) of Focus. To address the area of focus, identify 2 to 3 action steps and explain in detail for each of the categories below:
- Literacy Leadership
- Literacy Coaching
- Professional Learning
