Gabrielino High School’s LCAP-Aligned Single Plan for Student Achievement for the 2015-2016 School Year
ELA, ELD, and math CCSS Standards & ELA/ELD and math framework Science NGSS Standards and Framework Understanding by Design Meeting the needs of included special education students
Ongoing instructional assistance and support for teachers (e.g., use of content experts and instructional coaches) (EPC) All new teachers are enrolled in the local BTSA program with activities that focus on the use of standards-based instructional materials. New teachers receive two (2) years of support through the development of a cohort. Additionally, all teachers are observed frequently by an administrator and are evaluated annually. The administrative staff provides support in the areas of instructional practices, classroom management, and additional areas, as needed.
Teacher collaboration by grade level (EPC) The school has regularly scheduled late start days for teachers to collaborate. The teachers receive professional development on pupil free days and attend relevant professional development opportunities off-campus.
Teaching and Learning 9.
Alignment of curriculum, instruction, and materials to content and performance standards (NCLB) Teachers and administrators are participating together in the adoption and implementation processes for transition to the new Common Core State Standards and the implementation of 21st Century shifts in mathematics and ELA as specified in CA 2015 ELA/ELD Framework and 2014-revised Math CCSS. This includes a math textbook adoption of BIG IDEAS and the 3D curriculum for ELD 3. These adoptions have access to digital curriculum aligned to the CCSS via one-to-one devices. Gabrielino is progressing towards effective use of one-to-one technology in the classroom to promote teaching and learning and staff will be trained in the SAMR Model (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition) via district professional development. Professional development and opportunities for collaboration support the design of lessons to promote and support 21st Century skills: Collaboration, Creativity, Communication and Critical Thinking. Teachers have and continue to collaborate to align existing curriculum with CCSS (ELA-ELD, sath, science and social studies/history).
