2020-21 Phase Three: Comprehensive School Improvement Plan
    Rationale
School improvement efforts are a collaborative process involving multiple stakeholders. During
the improvement planning process, leaders focus on priority needs, funding, and closing
achievement gaps between identified subgroups of students. When implemented with fidelity,
the Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) cultivates an environment that promotes
student growth and achievement.

    Operational Definitions
Goal: Long-term three to five-year targets based on the five (5) required school level goals.
Elementary/middle schools must have goals for proficiency, separate academic indicator,
achievement gap, growth, and transition readiness. High schools must have goals for proficiency,
separate academic indicator, achievement gap, graduation rate, and transition readiness. Long-
term targets should be informed by The Needs Assessment for Schools.

Objective: Short-term target to be attained by the end of the current academic year. There can
be multiple objectives for each goal.

Strategy: An approach to systematically address the process, practice, or condition that the
school will focus its efforts upon in order to reach its goals or objectives. There can be multiple
strategies for each objective. The strategy can be based upon Kentucky's six (6) Key Core Work
Processes listed below or another established improvement approach (i.e. Six Sigma, Shipley,
Baldridge, etc.).

Activity: Actionable steps used to deploy the chosen strategy. There can be multiple activities for
each strategy.

Key Core Work Processes: A series of processes identified by the Kentucky Department of
Education that involve the majority of an organization's workforce and relate to its core
competencies. These are the factors that determine an organization's success and help it
prioritize areas for growth.

KCWP 1: Design and Deploy Standards
KCWP 2: Design and Deliver Instruction
KCWP 3: Design and Deliver Assessment Literacy
KCWP 4: Review, Analyze and Apply Data
KCWP 5: Design, Align and Deliver Support
KCWP 6: Establishing Learning Culture and Environment

Measure of Success: Criteria that shows the impact of the work. The measures may be
quantitative or qualitative but are observable in some way.

Progress Monitoring: Process used to assess the implementation of the plan, the rate of

                                                                                                                 Page 3 of 5

improvement, and the effectiveness of the plan. Should include timelines and responsible
individuals.

Funding: Local, state, or federal funds/grants used to support (or needed to support) the
improvement initiative.

    Requirements for Building an Improvement Plan
There are six (6) required district goals:
• Proficiency, separate academic indicator, achievement gap closure, graduation rate, growth, and
transition readiness.

The required school goals include the following:
• For elementary/middle school, these include proficiency, separate academic indicator,
achievement gap, and, growth.
• For high school, these include proficiency, separate academic indicator, achievement gap,
graduation rate, and transition readiness.

        were one of two Kentucky Schools to receive the National ESEA Distinguished
        Schools Award for academic performance. Looking forward, Ruth Moyer Elementary
        would like to refine our process for our below Proficient/Distinguished students that
        will better ensure all children (specifically those in our gap areas) are able to
        perform at the same high level in the classroom and on the state assessment. We
        continue to refine our RTI, Title 1, and ESS programs to serve those students. We
        have added help with executive functioning skills in ESS and a mindfulness session
        to help with behavior students. We also implemented the tools and support of
        Leader in Me. This mission allowed us to survey our parents, students, and teachers
        to determine areas of weakness and create lighthouse teams to develop these
        areas. These teams are spearheading the following: On-going staff learning, direct
        lessons for students, family communication, physical and emotional environment,
        student leadership and voice, school wide events.

Understanding Continuous Improvement: The Needs Assessment
In its most basic form, continuous improvement is about understanding the current state and
formulating a plan to move to the desired state. The comprehensive needs assessment is a
culmination of an extensive review of multiple sources of data collected over a period of time (e.g.
2-3 years). It is to be conducted annually as an essential part of the continuous improvement
process and precedes the development of strategic goals (i.e. desired state).

The needs assessment requires synthesis and analysis of multiple sources of data and should
reach conclusions about the current state of the school, as well as the processes, practices and
conditions that contributed to that state.

The needs assessment provides the framework for all schools to clearly and honestly identify
their most critical areas for improvement that will be addressed later in the planning process
through the development of goals, objectives, strategies and activities. 703 KAR 2:225 requires, as
part of continuous improvement planning for schools, each school complete the needs
assessment between October 1 and November 1 of each year and include: (1) a description of the
data reviewed and the process used to develop the needs assessment; (2) a review of the
previous plan and its implementation to inform development of the new plan; and, (3) perception
data gathered from the administration of a valid and reliable measure of teaching and learning
conditions. Further, as required by Section 1114 of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Title I
schools implementing a schoolwide program must base their Title I program on a comprehensive
needs assessment.

Protocol

      Clearly detail the process used for reviewing, analyzing and applying data results. Include
names of school councils, leadership teams and stakeholder groups involved. How
frequently does this planning team meet and how are these meetings documented?

        In a typical year, the process for reviewing, analyzing, and applying data results in
        our district and in our school consists of the following: Scores are reported to
        district and principal. District meets with principal to review data and determine
        strengths and weaknesses. Last year, the district also reviewed the new testing
        formulas and helped us understand the new system. These scores and this
        information are then sent to teachers and each group of teachers looks at how last
        year students grew in each area. We then meet as an entire school to complete a
        data worksheet that looks at the following areas using two years of data (Reading
        NAPD percentages, Math NAPD percentages, Social Studies NAPD percentages,
        Writing NAPD percentages, Separate Academic Indicator Percentages, Performance
        by Demographic groups for Math and Reading, Student Growth Indicator and
        ACCESS for EL). This data is reviewed as a school and as a grade level in PLC's. We
        use this data to create a list of strengths/weakness and possible reasons for these
        strengths and weaknesses. This data is also reviewed as a School Based Council
        along with MLA survey results, RtI data and Star Scores. The CSIP is created by
        principal, teachers, and SBDMC using all data. Principals and District meet together
        to combine all data into the CSIP. Parents receive individual student data at
        conferences and CSIP with trend data is also posted on the SBDMC website. All
        agendas with CSIP development are listed on the website in advance and noted in
        principal update. District then compiles all data and presents at a board meeting
        and this is televised on a local cable station. Due to covid-19, the state and the
        federal government gave a waiver for all Kentucky schools and therefore, we will be
        using 2018-2019 KPREP data for the remainder of this document.

                                                                                                                 Page 5 of 11

Current State

       Plainly state the current condition using precise numbers and percentages as revealed by
past, current and multiple sources of data. These should be based solely on data
outcomes. Cite the source of data used.

Example of Current Academic State:
-Thirty-four percent (34%) of students in the achievement gap scored proficient on KPREP
Reading.
-From 2018 to 2020, the school saw an 11% increase in novice scores in reading among
students in the achievement gap.
-Fifty-four percent (54%) of our students scored proficient in math compared to the state
average of 57%.

Example of Non-Academic Current State:
-Teacher Attendance: Teacher attendance rate was 84% for the 2019-20 school year – a
decrease from 92% in 2017-18.
-The number of behavior referrals increased from 204 in 2018-19 to 288 in 2019-20.
-Survey results and perception data indicated 62% of the school’s teachers received
adequate professional development.

        Due to covid-19, the state and the federal government gave a waiver for all
        Kentucky schools and therefore, we will be using 2018-2019 KPREP data Current
        Academic State: Overall Score 79.4 with a 5 Star Rating Proficiency Indicator 93.3
        rating Very High Separate Academic Indicator 90.6 rating Very High Growth Indicator
        57.2 rating Medium.

                                                                                                                 Page 6 of 11

Priorities/Concerns

     Clearly and concisely identify areas of weakness using precise numbers and percentages.
NOTE: These priorities will be thoroughly addressed in the Comprehensive School
Improvement Plan (CSIP) diagnostic and template.

Example: Sixty-eight (68%) of students in the achievement gap scored below proficiency
on the KPREP test in reading as opposed to just 12% of non-gap learners.

        2018-2019 KPREP Testing: 57.2 Growth Indicator will be our area of priority. Growth
        Data is a priority based on "Medium" Rating. Math 4th and 5th Grade - 33 students
        out of 280 tested had zero points for growth. 22 of these 33 students were Novice/
        Apprentice scoring students. 10 of these 33 students were proficient/distinguished
        scoring students. Therefore, 11.8% of the entire testing population of 280 students
        received a score of zero points in Math.Reading 4th and 5th Grade - 41 students out
        of 280 tested had zero points for growth. 26 of these 41 students were Novice/
        Apprentice scoring students. 15 of these 41 students were proficient/distinguished
        scoring students. Therefore, 14.6% of the entire testing population of 280 students
        received a score of zero points in Reading. In addition, we are also using district
        benchmarks and STAR data to find new areas of growth needed due to the 6
        months of NTI and covid quarantine. The district has provided these scores per
        student and subject to each leadership team.

                                                                                                                 Page 7 of 11

Trends

      Analyzing data trends from the previous two academic years, which academic, cultural
and behavioral measures remain significant areas for improvement?

        2018-2019 data trends showed Social Studies on a decline when looking at the past
        three years of data. However, in 2019 we increased to 87%. 2016 - 81.9% proficient
        and distinguished.2017 - 75% proficient and distinguished. 2018 - 73.6% proficient
        and distinguished. 2019 - 87% proficient and distinguished. Disability Groups and
        Economically Disadvantaged Groups continue to show lower scores than their
        counterpart groups. *Disability in Reading went lower than "All students" this year
        only. **All others show two years of lower scores than "all students" but not decline
        from previous years. 2018 - Reading P/D for All Students 72.6%Reading P/D for
        Economically Disadvantaged 61.5% Reading P/D for Disability 73.3% Math P/D for

Potential Source of Problem

      Which processes, practices or conditions will the school focus its resources and efforts
upon in order to produce the desired changes? Note that all processes, practices and
conditions can be linked to the six Key Core Work Processes outlined below:

KCWP 1: Design and Deploy Standards
KCWP 2: Design and Deliver Instruction
KCWP 3: Design and Deliver Assessment Literacy
KCWP 4: Review, Analyze and Apply Data
KCWP 5: Design, Align and Deliver Support
KCWP 6: Establishing Learning Culture and Environment

        Our staff will review, analyze and apply data to determine strengths and
        weaknesses of our program. We will look at our curriculum K-5 to make sure we are
        designing and delivering the correct instruction at each level. We will continue PLC's
        with general education and special education so we can align our content and
        differentiate in both settings. We will look at our Title 1 and RtI programs and make
        sure that all students who are scoring lower will receive intervention and support.
        We will use our STAR district data to help the gap created by NTI and covid-19
        quarantine.

                                                                                                                 Page 9 of 11

Strengths/Leverages

      Plainly state, using precise numbers and percentages revealed by current data, the
strengths and leverages of the school.

Example: Graduation rate has increased from 67% the last five years to its current rate of
98%.

        Our Proficient/Distinguished percentages continue to remain at a high level:76.4%
        of our students scored P/D in Reading as compared to 74.2% 17-18 and 70.5% the
        previous year. 73.9% of our students scored P/D in Math as compared to 75% in
        17-18 and 70.9% the previous year.53.3% of our students scored P/D in Science as
        compared to 57.9% in 17-18. 75.9% of our students scored P/D in Writing as
        compared to 79.3% in 17-18 and 57.5% the previous year."Two or more races" have
        a higher proficiency score than our "all student" proficiency score in Reading. All
        students: 41.4% Proficient. Two or more races: 53.3% Proficient "Two or more races"
        have a higher proficiency score than our "all student" proficiency score in Math. All
        students: 38.9 Proficient. Two or more races: 43.8% Proficient * This demographic
        group also have zero Novice while our "all student" group as 5.4% novice. All areas
        on state testing were above state average. 5 Star Rating. One of the new problems
        we face is a 6 month NTI quarantine period. This has created gaps that we will
        analyze using STAR date three times a year and weekly probes for students who are
        in Title 1 and RtI.

                                                                                                                Page 10 of 11

2020-21 Phase One: Continuous Improvement Diagnostic for
Schools
       The Comprehensive School Improvement Plan or CSIP is defined as a plan
developed by the school council, or successor, and charter schools with the input of parents,
faculty, and staff, based on a review of relevant data that includes targets, strategies, activities,
and a time schedule to support student achievement and student growth, and to eliminate
gaps among groups of students.

The comprehensive school and district improvement plan process is outlined in 703 KAR
5:225. The requirements included in the administrative regulation are key components of
the continuous improvement process in Kentucky and ultimately fulfillment of school,
district, and state goals under the Kentucky State Plan as required by the Every Student
Succeeds Act (ESSA).

While the regulation outlines a timeline for compliance purposes, the plan itself is a
strategic and proven approach to improve processes and to ensure students achieve. The
timeline for the school’s 2020-21 diagnostics is as follows:

Phase One: August 1 - October 1
• Continuous Improvement Diagnostic for Schools

Phase Two: October 1 - November 1
• The Needs Assessment for Schools
• School Assurances
• School Safety Report

Phase Three: November 1 - January 1
• Comprehensive School Improvement Plan
• Executive Summary for Schools
• Closing the Achievement Gap Diagnostic for Schools
• Professional Development Plan for Schools

Phase Four: January 1 - December 31
• Progress Monitoring

As principal of the school, I hereby commit to implementing continuous improvement
processes with fidelity to support student achievement and student growth and to
eliminate achievement gaps among groups of students.

Please enter your name and date below to certify.

2020-21 Phase Three: Professional Development Plan for Schools
The purpose of this diagnostic is to support the school in designing and implementing a
professional development plan that aligns to the goals established in KRS 158.6451 and the local
needs assessment. The basis of the professional development plan aligns to 704 KAR 3:035,
which states the following:

Annual Professional Development Plan:

Section 2. Each local school and district shall develop a process to design a professional
development plan that meets the goals established in KRS 158.6451 and in the local needs
assessment. A school professional development plan shall be incorporated into the school
improvement plan and shall be made public prior to the implementation of the plan. The local
district professional development plan shall be incorporated into the district improvement plan
and posted to the local district Web site prior to the implementation of the plan.

Section 3. Each school and local district professional development plan shall contain the following
elements:

1. A clear statement of the school or district mission
2. Evidence of representation of all persons affected by the professional development plan
3. A needs assessment analysis
4. Professional development objectives that are focused on the school or district mission, derived
from the needs assessment, and specify changes in educator practice needed to improve student
achievement; and
5. A process for evaluating impact on student learning and improving professional learning, using
evaluation results

         1. What is the school's mission?

        Our students are actively engaged in a variety of differentiated experiences that
        foster creativity and curiosity, demonstrating the skills needed to solve real world
        problems and become caring and productive members of the global community.
        Our teachers exhibit a student centered passion for teaching, a deep understanding
        of content, a caring approach for each individual while utilizing research based
        strategies to challenge and meet the needs of all learners. Our support staff play an
        integral role in our school community enhancing all aspects of the educational
        experience. Our leadership maintains high expectations and works collaboratively
        wiht everyone to ensure decisions are made in the best interest of all students, with
        a commitment to growth and achievement. Our parents are essential partners in
        their child's education through active collaboration with our school. Our community
        is a valued resource in helping students develop civic pride through service learning,
        community engagement, and global awareness. Our instruction fosters individual

                                                                                                                     Page 3 of 8

        student growth to prepare students for their next level of academic success and
        instills a passion for lifelong learning. Our technology is integrated by teachers and
        students to enhance strengthen learning and creativity while connecting global
        community.

       2. The needs assessment provides the framework for all schools to clearly identify
their most critical areas for improvement that will be addressed in the planning process
through the development of goals, objectives, strategies and activities.

Based on the most critical areas for improvement identified in the completed needs
assessment per 703 KAR 5:225 (3), what are the school's top two priorities for
professional development that support continuous improvement?

        To analyze the priorities for Moyer, we reviewed our mission, looked at all the data
        and determined the following two areas as priorities for continued Professional
        Development. 1) Feedback and Coaching as noted in the Impact Kentucky Survey
        Results 2) Shared Leadership through our Leader in Me initiatives and Impact
        Kentucky data

      3. How do the identified top two priorities of professional development relate to
school goals?

        These priorities are closely aligned to our Workplace CSIP goal and are based on the
        data received in our Impact Kentucky Survey Results.

      4a. For the first priority need, what are the specific objectives for the professional
development aligned to the school goal(s)? Consider the long and short term changes
that need to occur in order to meet the goal.

        Feedback and Coaching: Short Term objectives will be to increase the amount of
        time teachers have to work together on Professional Development and with our
        district provided coach. Long Term objective will be to work with district to add this
        time into the district calendar and to provide substitutes so these scheduled
        meetings can occur both school and district wide.

         4b. What are the intended results? (student outcomes; educator beliefs, practices, etc.)

        The intended results will be to better align the curriculum and add best practice
        teaching strategies to each grade level team through peer and coaching feedback

2020-21 Phase Three: Closing the Achievement Gap Diagnostic
    Rationale

The Closing the Achievement Gap Report is required by KRS 158.649, which requires the
school-based decision making council, or the principal if no council exists to set the school's
targets for eliminating any achievement gap. The targets should be established with input from
parents, faculty, and staff and submitted to the superintendent for consideration and the local
board of education for adoption.

In addition to being a legal mandate, the Closing the Achievement Gap Report is also a vital
component of the continuous improvement process. The report is designed to underscore a
school's trend data (i.e. two-year window) relating to its individual gap groups. Upon completion
of the Closing the Achievement Gap Report, schools will have already engaged in a significant
piece of school improvement work by intentionally focusing on the gaps that exist among its
underserved student populations.

                                                                                                                    Page 3 of 12

I. Achievement Gap Group Identification
Schools should use a variety of measures and analysis to conduct its annual Closing the
Achievement Gap Report pursuant to KRS 158.649.
         Complete the Achievement Gap Group spreadsheet and attach it.

        No gap group for achievement gap met the minimum number of 10 students in any
        category for ATSI in Reading or Math testing. To complete this section I will analyze
        my students with a disability in the area of Reading as compared to those without a
        disability in the area of reading using the KPREP data provided by the state.

II. Achievement Gap Analysis

      A. Describe the school's climate and culture as they relate to its achievement gap
population.

        Ruth Moyer Elementary, founded in 1930, is a kindergarten through fifth grade
        school located in the heart of Fort Thomas, Kentucky (pop.17,000). With an
        enrollment of 589 students, our school mission statement guides our everyday
        interactions with students and parents. Our mission statement: "Our students are
        actively engaged in a variety of differentiated experiences that foster creativity and
        curiosity to solve real world problems." Our teachers exhibit student centered
        passion for teaching, a deep understanding of content, a caring approach for each
        individual while utilizing research based strategies. Our support staff plays an
        integral role. Our leadership maintains high expectations and works collaboratively
        with everyone to ensure decisions are in the best interest of students. Our parents
        are essential partners in their child's education. Our community is a valued
        resource in helping students develop civic pride through service learning. Our
        instruction fosters individual student growth to prepare students for their next level
        of academic success. Our technology is integrated by teachers and students to
        enhance and strengthen learning and creativity while connecting the global
        community. All students K-5 use iPad to supplement and support their learning.
        Ruth Moyer Elementary has been a consistent top performer on state assessments.
        In 2009 and 2015 Ruth Moyer Elementary was named a National Blue Ribbon
        School of Excellence. Since the implementation of the Kentucky Education Reform
        Act of 1990, Ruth Moyer Elementary School has maintained a course towards
        proficiency for all students. In 2020-2021 we were one of two Kentucky Schools to
        receive the National ESEA Distinguished Schools Award for academic performance.
        According to the 2018 KPREP results, Moyer continues to perform above the state in
        all content areas with an overall proficiency score of 94.9 in Reading and a score of
        91.7 in Math Proficiency. The current state system rated Moyer Elementary the
        highest rating as a Five-Star School. Moyer prides itself on providing a "guaranteed
        and viable" curriculum for all students. The programs that Moyer uses are research
        based (Wonders, Everyday Math, and intervention programs) that are designed to
        challenge students to be creative and critical thinkers, problem solvers, and real
        world appliers. We support our district Portrait of a Graduate mission to develop
        courageous leaders, empathetic collaborators, global communicators, curious and
        critical thinkers, and creative problem solvers. Every year the staff of Moyer
        evaluates a different curriculum strand (Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies
        and Special Area Classes) and revises it to ensure that it is providing the best
        educational practices and programs. Currently, Moyer offers two full and two half

                                                                                                                    Page 5 of 12

        day Kindergarten classes as well as grades one through five. We provide EL services
        for our district in grades K-5 which has enriched our classrooms with amazing
        diversity and provides a cultural awareness for students. Ruth Moyer has
        outstanding community and parent involvement. Students at all levels participate in
        Service Learning projects in which content areas are connected to community
        service projects. Parents are extremely supportive and involved in our school.
        Programs such as Junior Achievement, COSI, Red Ribbon Week, Kentucky Kid's Day,
        and Mustangs Care demonstrate a high level of involvement in which parents
        organize and often teach lessons in our classrooms. After school opportunities for
        students are plentiful. Students have the opportunity to participate in Drama Club,
        Studio Art, Chess, Chorus, Student Technology Leadership Program, Journalism
        Club, Academic Team, Big Buddies, Robotics, Lego League and Girls on the Run. (As
        COVID and CDC Regulations and Guidelines Allow) Ruth Moyer Elementary prides
        itself on providing a safe, friendly, and nurturing environment for our students to
        learn and grow. We succeed because the community and families we serve value
        and support excellence in education. This tradition of excellence is the reason that
        Moyer is among the top Northern Kentucky elementary schools and continues to
        improve.We aren't able to monitor same GAP groups for two years as our numbers
        do not have enough to keep trend data. Therefore, the only GAP data that we have
        that is not closed is the disability group.

      B. Which achievement gaps has the school successfully closed? Use specific data
from the previous two academic years when analyzing trends.

        We aren't able to monitor same GAP groups for two years as our numbers do not
        have enough to keep trend data. Therefore, the only GAP data that we have that is
        not closed is the disability group. With KPREP testing on pause in 2019-2020 due to
        the global pandemic, MES has utilized STAR data to monitor our GAP groups and
        meet regularly on interventions for these students.

      C. Based upon the analysis of the school's achievement gap data, identify the gap groups
and content areas where the school has shown improvement. Use specific data from
the previous two academic years when analyzing trends.

        Reading and Math for Novice and Apprentice are analyzed for our 2 gap group
        demographic areas (Economically Challenged/Disability). This is a comparison from
        2017 and 2018 KPREP data. We did not have enough students to report Gap Groups
        for any other areas in any other contents. Math - Economically Disadvantaged went
        from 39.4% Novice and Apprentice to 33.3% Novice and Apprentice. This shows that
        less students from this category are scoring in the Novice/Apprentice range and
        therefore an increase in the Proficient/Distinguished range. For Disability NAPD

                                                                                                                    Page 6 of 12

        Results we found the following improvement: 2017 Data: 25.7% Novice/Apprentice
        for all students and 26.7% Novice/Apprentice for disabilities. This shows very similar
        results for both categories and therefore good progress for our students with an
        IEP. However, 2018 data showed a decline. 2018 Data: 23.6% Novice/Apprentice for
        all students and 54.6% Novice/Apprentice for disabilities. This shows a decline from
        last year and this needs to be addressed for this year. See more in the lacked
        progression section below. With KPREP testing on pause in 2019-2020 due to the
        global pandemic, MES has utilized STAR data to monitor our GAP groups and meet
        regularly on interventions for these students. This data is showing that 43% of this
        group will meet their KPREP goal of Proficient in Math if they continue on their
        current path and 52% in reading. We are currently adding interventions to increase
        this percentage.

      D. Based upon the analysis of the gap data, identify the gap groups and content areas
where the school has lacked progression or regressed. Use specific data from the
previous two academic years when analyzing trends.

        Reading and Math for Novice and Apprentice are analyzed for our 2 gap group
        demographic areas (Economically Challenged/Disability). This is a comparison from
        2017 and 2018 KPREP data. We did not have enough students to report Gap Groups
        for any other areas in any other contents. Reading - Economically Disadvantaged
        went from 13.4% Novice and Apprentice to 40.7% Novice and Apprentice. Reading -
        Disability went from 26.7% Novice and Apprentice to 54.6% Novice and Apprentice.
        Reading for all students show Novice and Apprentice for the most recent KPREP
        data at 23.6%. Math - Disability went from 66.7% Novice and Apprentice to 68.2
        Novice and Apprentice Math for all students show Novice and Apprentice for the
        most recent KPREP data at 26.1%

      E. Describe the processes, practices and/or conditions that have prevented the school
from closing existing and persistent achievement gaps.

        The teachers (EL, Special Education, RtI and Title 1) do not have enough designated
        time to plan and discuss individual student needs. Teacher planning period is based
        upon common plan for grade level teachers and does not include teacher
        mentioned above. Therefore, teachers attended meetings every 6-8 weeks to
        discuss grade levels. These teachers without the common plan need to lose pull out
        time with their kids to attend these meetings. ESS is not as intentional as we would
        like and needs to be refined. We started this process last year by creating more
        options before school for children. This caused attendance issues so this year we
        moved this to end of the day. We have added (Yoga, Executive Functioning,
        Presentation Skills...) to the already successful academic offerings. The global

                                                                                                                    Page 7 of 12

        pandemic has halted many of these plans due to CDC guidelines and/or remote
        learning demands due to quarantine. We will continue to refine out schedule and
        are meeting via TEAMS to discuss students. The district has also added days into the
        calendar for staff to meet together and discuss students, curriculum and learning
        gaps.

       F. Describe the process used to involve teachers, leaders, and other stakeholders in the
continuous improvement and planning process as it relates to closing the achievement
gap. List the names and roles of strategic partners involved.

        CSIP is shared with stakeholders through various means. Goals are discussed with
        district and building leadership. Teachers discuss goals through team meetings,
        Faculty Meetings and specific meetings created to dissegregate the data. SBDM
        Council is informed and discusses goals in relation to the achievement GAP. We look
        at KPREP created demographic reports and created a three year data trend using
        the NAPD KPREP data. We also show RtI Progress using STAR reporting in both PLC's
        and SBDMC meetings. Updates on student progress reported monthly at SBDM
        Council meetings via scores, classroom activities, events, technology and/or policy
        review. A draft was created for approval of SBDMC and teachers discussed draft and
        possible revisions during PLC's. The draft was then presented to the board at a
