West Jordan Hawthorn 2015-16 Goals and Use of Monies:

In addition, provide professional support for teachers to collaborate in application and evaluation of application of these skills and strategies in the classroom. The goal is for 90% engagement of students in learning, 90% of the time.

2. Provide practice opportunities for students on math concepts and better inform teacher instruction based on formative assessments that identify student learning.

Teachers are tracking progress and setting the program to specific areas of practice when they find students are struggling with math skill success.

3. Increase time to review math concepts, study and organizational skills through paying for three class periods. Funds will fund two math lab classes for students struggling with the application of math concepts in the new core and one class for students who are failing classes two or more core classes which will include math in grades 8thand 9th. Students in the 8th/9thclass will also receive instruction in reading comprehension

In addition, provide professional support for teachers to collaborate in application and evaluation of application of these skills and strategies in the classroom. The goal is for 90% engagement of students in learning, 90% of the time. Funds will pay for substitutes so that teachers can meet in grade level teams for 2 to 3 hours 8 times during the year to receive SIOP training, observe each other apply teaching strategies, and provide immediate feedback to each other.

2. Provide Professional Development to teachers new to Hawthorn Academy in the methodology of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. As IB is the state approved focus of the school it is critical that teacher understand the program and how to utilize it in their classrooms. The emphasis of IB is inquiry and aligns to the objective and vision of the Utah Core. As South Jordan Hawthorn Academy is a new elementary, 90% of the teachers had not had any training in IB and were limited in their professional development training on cross curricular and inquiry teaching strategies.

3. Provide additional practice opportunities for students on math concepts at the level of learning on math skills and better inform teacher instruction based on formative assessments that identify student learning. Purchase copies skill practice books that students will use at the beginning off the day to reinforce math skills for students in grade 3. Obtain math workbooks that align to the Utah Core for all students in grades K-2.
