Goals Linked to WBWF Outcomes

.  

Annandale Public Schools has established Early Childhood Preschool Objectives to guide preparation for kindergarten. Annandale Preschool developed early childhood objectives based on the Minnesota Early Childhood Indicators of Progress. This Pre-K desired results developmental profile is completed throughout a school year for each child in our program.  This profile is given to the Kindergarten team to review. 

In 2015-2016, students transitioning from various school district preschool and non-school district preschool programs were tracked.  Staff sought a strong measure to determine transitioning success.  Teachers will rely on two screening measures supported by the Minnesota Department of Education: the ES!-R, Early Screening Inventory-Revised, 2008 Edition and an Ages and Stages Questionnaire.

Goal - 98% of students who satisfactorily complete ISD 876 Kindergarten Readiness will transition successfully to Kindergarten by September 30, 2017, as determined by Annandale Elementary School Kindergarten teachers following the process that includes the ESI-R and ASQ screening assessment.

All Students in Third Grade Achieving Grade-Level Literacy

Elementary Literacy Goal (aligned with Q Comp goal) is based on the RtI Framework (Response to Intervention) for literacy as documented in our District Literacy Plan.  This tiered approach allows us to reach all students based on defined data and interventions in place within our elementary school.

Goal - The percentage of third grade students enrolled by October 1, 2016 in Annandale Elementary School who achieve proficiency in all 2017 MCA Reading assessments will be at least 3% higher than the results achieved in 2016. The results in 2016 were 67.2%, so the goal is 70.2% proficiency.  

Results - In 2016, 64.2% of third grade students enrolled by October 1, 2015, achieved proficiency.  This was a significant 7.6% increase from the 2015 third grade percentage of 56.6%.
