  • New elementary school coming to the POWER Zone in 2019  

    This new neighborhood elementary will add to District 49’s portfolio of schools through integration of the visual and performing arts with traditional academic standards to develop the passion and talents of all students. Scheduled to open in August of 2019, the school will serve the Banning Lewis Ranch area and surrounding neighborhoods. This school is the second of two new D49 elementary schools outlined in the Building Our Future Community plan, made possible by the voter approved 3B MLO of 2016.

    Current and Ongoing Activity

     

    Primary Literacy

    Last May, at the completion of a Language Arts curriculum review and adoption process lead by Sherry Kyle, POWER Zone elementary schools began to plan professional development around new programming entitled Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA).  Two days of training occurred over July 30th and 31st.  K-5 teachers dove into the material and began a learning process to better understand how to best deliver these materials to a wide variety of learners.  The program was chosen primarily due to its strong explicit core phonics instruction, along with the relevancy and engagement of their reading passages.  This particular resource will align well with current benchmarking indicators and will provide the zone with the opportunity for whole zone collaboration around reading and writing instruction.

    D49 Pathways

    VRHS now has a dedicated lead Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) advisor whose primary responsibility is to ensure a core group of selected teachers are continually trained in the development of ICAPs for every student.  Advisory will now have an ICAP focus at strategic points throughout the year.  No longer will ICAPs be a formulaic checklist with little to no differentiation per student.  The expectation at VRHS is that ICAPs will be targeted and supported a monthly basis for each and every student.      

    Assessment Work

    POWER Zone will now use Beacon Assessments in place of Scantron for ELA and Math in grades 2-8.  These assessments are aligned to on grade level material that has the most impact on student learning.  Beacon also creates a virtual concept math for each individual student that can then be tracked once the student takes the beginning of year assessment.  This will allow for further differentiation across classrooms and grade levels.  These assessments will also be used within the zone’s student growth portion of their evaluation model.

    POWER Zone Performance Surveys

    POWER Zone is asking students, parents, and staff to take 2 surveys at the beginning of this year in order to measure the effectiveness of their three main zone initiatives of ensuring a safe, collaborative, and learning focused environment for our staff and students, ensuring they offer curriculum and learning opportunities that are engaging, rigorous, and individualized, and finally ensuring they have the most effective educators possible in each and every classroom.  The Level 1 High Reliability Schools Certification process offered through Marzano Research will serve as a framework to measure how successful each stakeholder group believes POWER Zone is in implementing strategies to meet these initiatives.

     

    Upcoming/Other Activity


    Two main focuses of the POWER Zone this year are to track feedback from their High Reliability School and Performance Dashboard surveys.  Both surveys will serve as major components of their overall community feedback process.
