  • Kings Park Elementary School
  • Region 4
  • Dotty Lin, Principal

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Identified specific subgroup of students will make more than one year’s growth in reading as measured by the Kings Park Growth Goals chart.

Strategy 1 CLTs will collaboratively build unit plans for the literacy workshop block.

Strategy 2 Language Arts CORE team, Literacy Coach and ESOL/Interventionist teachers will provide strategic support.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Over the next two years Kings Park will decrease the unadjusted achievement gap on the Math SOL of Students with Disabilities (baseline 20%)  and Hispanic (baseline 10%) compared to all students by:

  • 2020-2021 by 3% (H= 7%, D= 17%)
  • 2021-2022 by 3% (H=4, D= 14%)

Strategy 1  Across math strands, teachers will  develop a deeper conceptual understanding of the continuum of mathematical learning that will increase student conceptual understanding and procedural fluency.

Strategy 2  Redesign instruction to have a greater emphasis on students’ conceptual understanding of math concepts and help students utilize this understanding to develop procedural fluency. 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Using the Young Scholars Implementation Rubric, Kings Park will progress from “Launching” to “Developing” in the areas of Committed Professionals and Find/Identify.

Strategy 1  Staff will participate in ongoing professional development regarding equity and the Young Scholars (YS) Model in order to understand KPES demographics, representation in advanced programs, and the essential elements of the YS profile (access, advocacy, and affirmation).

Strategy 2  Staff will engage with the “Behavioral Considerations” document to use asset-based language regarding student potential and will begin to gather data to identify students demonstrating potential characteristics and behaviors of YS.
