School Land Trust Report
It is the focus of Heartland Elementary to increase the number of students reaching proficiency and/or showing growth on the end-of-year testing by:
- Hiring Instructional Assistants to support instruction within the school setting. The assistants will be assigned to work with low performing students to provide research-based interventions. Progress will be monitored each week and discussed during PLC meetings.
- Offering Professional Development to support teachers in the Core Curriculum, Turn Around process, and behavior/social research-based strategies. Specifically, teachers will focus on improving Tier I instruction. Ongoing feedback to teachers will be provided by administration and coaches. Teachers will utilize professional development time to identify essential learning concepts and plan common formative assessments.
- Purchasing any needed materials to support increased student learning, including professional books for teachers.
