Subject: Family and Community Engagement (Goal D) LEA Goal: Students will benefit from improved family and community engagement. School Goal #4 Students will benefit from improved family and community engagement. Data Used to Form this Goal: Gabrielino and the rest of the district struggles to have parent representatives on site committees, such as School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Council, and Parent Teacher Association groups. This also occurs with parent and community representatives on district committees, such as District English Learner Advisory Council, District School Leadership Team, and Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Committee. However, attendance at parent education workshop/seminars is high in many cases. But, the families of our unduplicated students (low income, EL, and foster youth) are underrepresented on these committees and attend parent education workshops/seminars at a lower rate. Currently, the AERIES Parent Portal that houses secondary student grades for each course is accessed by 90% of Gabrielino parents and is utilized by 100% of the teachers at Gabrielino. Findings from the Analysis of this Data: These findings from the analysis of this data show that the school is challenged to have parents attend meetings, especially parents of English Learner, SED, and Hispanic parents.

How the School will Evaluate the Progress of this Goal / Identified LCAP Metrics: 1. Parent Workshop/Seminar Attendance will be tracked in year one to 3.

Appendix B - Analysis of Current Instructional Program

Standards, Assessment, and Accountability 1.

Use of state and local assessments to modify instruction and improve student achievement (NCLB) Gabrielino uses multiple sources of evidence from state and local assessments and other forms of evidence to investigate causes and undertakes interventions to address particular needs. Examples of classroom and local assessments used to meet Gabrielino’s goal to create systems of accountability that include assessment, evaluation, and implementation, include technology mobile device applications informal classroom assessments via performance tasks in ELA, math, science, and social science; ELA, science and social studies/history project-based assessments, and SSCC-aligned benchmark assessment in the four core areas. Gabrielino also examines local and state assessments as part of a continuous improvement effort, including math placement assessments such as student proficiency and progress on UCLA’s MDTP; California English Language Development Test/ELPAC, English language development assessment tools, SBAC-formatted classroom assessments in ELA and math, and graduation checks. The major purpose of assessment and accountability is improving significant learning outcomes for students.

2.

Use of data to monitor student progress on curriculum-embedded assessments and modify instruction (EPC) All Gabrielino teachers use curriculum-embedded assessments. Teachers and school staff analyze these data to determine appropriate teaching strategies to meet the needs of the students and to assist in the development of new teaching practices. The results are recorded in the schoolwide grading program in Aeries’ Parent Portal. Scores from common benchmark and end – of-course final exams are recorded in the student data system, EADMs. These assessments are used to monitor student progress and the effectiveness of instruction. The results are used to reteach, modify and differentiate the curriculum to students needing extra support. Historically, Gabrielino used CAHSEE data and CST data to monitor student progress and modify instruction, with the exception of the California Life Science assessment given in the 10th grade. The school is transitioning to the new CAASPP testing system and is facilitating school-wide discussions of 2015 Smarter Balanced scores regarding the district’s targets for growth in 2016. The special education teachers have gone through additional training on implementing the CAA and will discuss data in the fall of 2016. Some ELA and math teachers have participate in SBAC interim assessment training. The state considers the 2016 CAASPP scores baseline data. Gabrielino continues to use CELDT scores to monitor the progress of English Language Learners, including L-TELs. The school will transition to the ELPAC Summative and Initial assessment in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Finally, the physical education teachers use California Fitness test results to determine placement and to

differentiate instruction to students as a result of the data. The school uses curriculum-embedded assessments (in addition to other informal and formal assessments) for monitoring the progress of students with disabilities towards end-of-year goals and IEP goals. Teachers use the information to plan and provide instruction targeted to each specific level of proficiency and academic ability level. All Gabrielino teachers currently design their lessons using the California State Standards. Teachers follow a district approved curriculum and state adopted and district approved textbooks and supplemental materials. Benchmarks and standardized assessments are used to determine the achievement of individual students in addition to schoolwide and sub-groups of students in all subject areas.

Plan Implementation Identify strategies in the most recent board approved SPSA that were fully implemented as described in the plan. The strategies identified in the most recent approved SPSA that were fully implemented were:  Support during the school day and after school for English Language Learners  Low student-to-counselor ratio  Implementation of the Academic Advisory  After-school tutoring  Successful implementation of the Data Team and the ELD team  The One City One Book One Read program  Anti-Bullying program “Gab Week”  Addition of anatomy and physiology to start sports medicine pathway Identify strategies in the most recent board approved SPSA that were not fully implemented as described in the plan or were not implemented within the specified timelines. The strategies identified in the most recent approved SPSA that were not fully implemented include the Family Call Center. What specific actions related to those strategies were eliminated or modified during the year? All of the actions related to the Parent Call Center were eliminated during the year. Identify barriers to full or timely implementation of the strategies identified above. The barriers to implementation include scarce resource of time. What actions were undertaken to mitigate those barriers or adjust the plan to overcome them? The administrative team has a different approach this year to increase the engagement of our Hispanic parents. We will be developing a Hispanic Parent Group as articulated in the book, Reaching Out to Latino Families of English Language Learners. Page 30 of 34


Gabrielino High School’s LCAP-Aligned Single Plan for Student Achievement for the 2015-2016 School Year

What impact did the lack of full or timely implementation of these strategies have on student outcomes? What data did you use to come to this conclusion? Strong home-school connections support student success. There are some Gabrielino Hispanic families that are engaged, but most are not, and in fact feel that they are not welcome at the school. This culture decreases the academic success of our Hispanic students and without a shift, other strategies to support these learners will not be as effective.

Strategies and Activities Identify those strategies or activities that were particularly effective in improving student achievement. What evidence do you have of the direct or indirect impact of the strategies or activities on student achievement? Most of Gabrielino’s major initiatives started during the 2015-2016 school year. These include the English make-up class, the clustering of L-TELs into general ed classes, the after-school tutoring program, the Academic Advisory, the adoption of the new math textbook. Identify those strategies or activities that were ineffective or minimally effective in improving student achievement. The Academic Advisory will be re-examined for next year to determine the future of the program.

Based on an analysis of the impact of the strategies/activities, what appears to be the reason they were ineffective in improving student achievement? Lack of timely implementation Limited or ineffective professional development to support implementation Lack of effective follow-up or coaching to support implementation Not implemented with fidelity Not appropriately matched to student needs/student population Other: Eliminating it from next year’s plan Continuing it with the following modifications:

Involvement/Governance How was the SSC involved in development of the plan? The School Site Council had the opportunity to read and discuss the Single Plan in the spring and again in the fall of 2015. How were advisory committees involved in providing advice to the SSC? N/A How was the plan monitored during the school year? Throughout the school year, the School Site Council examined data that relates to the school's Single Plan/WASC Action Plan that aligns with the district's LCAP.

What changes are needed to ensure involvement of all stakeholders and adequate monitoring of planned activities and outcomes?

Outcomes Identify any goals in the most recent board approved SPSA that were met. The goals of the 2015-2016 SPSA were:    

Students will be college and career ready. Students will receive high quality instruction and intervention to eliminate the achievement gap. Students will have an equal opportunity to learn and succeed in a culturally responsive, engaging, and physically and emotionally safe environment. Students will benefit from improved family and community engagement.

Gabrielino made progress toward these goals, and they are ongoing and align with the goals of the district LCAP. Identify any goals in the most recent board approved SPSA that were not met, or were only partially met. Gabrielino has identified increasing the number of English Learners who graduate and increasing the number of Hispanic students who graduate A-G eligible as the most important indicators for goals 1 and 2 above. We will know after June of 2016 if there is a positive trend for these metrics. List any strategies related to this goal that were identified above as “not fully implemented” or “ineffective” or “minimally” effective. All of the strategies related to these goals were implemented this year or will be in 2016-2017. We do not yet have data to determine effectiveness. Based on this information, what might be some recommendations for future steps to meet this goal? Page 33 of 34
