School Achievement Goals

Major Initiatives, Actions and Services to Improve Student Achievement

Goal 1: Student Achievement:

  • By May 1, 2022, through the thorough implementation of Reading, Writing, Phonics, and Math Workshop, performance task preparation, and RTI, passing i-Ready ELA scores (mid- grade-level or higher) will increase by 10 percentage points (from 15% to 25%) and iReady Math scores will increase by 10 percentage points (from 13% to 23%) from 2020-2021. Teachers will endeavor to provide at least one year of growth for students at or above grade level and 1.5 years of growth for students below grade level, as measured by Guided Reading Levels and iReady Growth. Likewise, our ELL proficiency level on iReady ELA will increase by 10 percentage points (from 2% to 12%) and on iReady Math (from 2% to 12%). Our SPED proficiency on the iReady ELA will increase by 10 percentage points (from 6% to 16%) and on iReady Math (from 0% to 10%).
  • Maple's goal is that 100% of our students (TK-6 ) will make adequate progress towards proficiency in the core content areas. Students who are not making adequate progress toward their goal(s) will have an RTI plan in place whereby teachers design a tiered model of intervention and monitor their progress.
  • The percentage of students in grades 3-6 scoring in levels 1 and 2 ("not meeting State Standards") on the 2021-22 Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) CAASPP assessment will decrease by a minimum of 20% from the 2018-19 ELA and Mathematics results.

  • Teachers will implement Common Core Curriculum Standards. Each grade-level PLC Team will collaborate to review standards and curriculum, clarify when needed, and make sure all content within the curriculum is being taught and that 100% of students demonstrate mastery on identified Guaranteed and Visible Standards.
  • In order to provide strong Tier 1 and Tier 2 ELA instruction, all grade levels will be fully trained in the principles and practice of Balanced Literacy, including Reading and Writing Workshop. Each classroom will have a full, robust, culturally responsive classroom library so that students will have ample practice in reading books at their independent reading level. In addition to the classroom library, each teacher will have full access to our Scholastic Guided Reading Book Room for guided reading activities and RTI.
  • Every trimester, PLCs and the RTI Teacher analyze data to create targeted intervention groups using the SIPPS and LLI intervention programs. These groups will meet with the RTI Teacher and Instructional Assistant multiple times per week and will be progress monitored toward meeting their instructional targets.
  • Teachers will utilize their PLC time to design tiered instruction based on their students' needs and reteach material as needed. A 50% PE Teacher will provide instruction for classes at the same (or close) grade level, so they can meet for PLCs.
  • Maple will utilize substitutes to strategically release teachers to plan, deliver, and reflect upon their CCSS-aligned ELA and Math curriculum (including Reading and Writing Workshop), as well as discuss/share effective instructional strategies and

review student work. 

  • All students in grades 4, 5, and 6 will experience hands-on, immersive science at Astrocamp and Catalina Island Marine Institute.
  • Maple will offer a comprehensive Speech and Debate program for our 4th, 5th, and 6th graders to help with English language acquisition, listening, speaking, and writing skills.
  • Maple will invest in NGSS curriculum, materials, and supplies to fill our new STEAM lab so that students will have access to NGSS-aligned investigations and activities.
  • The principal will be leading formal and informal professional development on Reading, Writing, and Phonics Workshop (TCRWP) as well as Math Workshop/CGI to improve instructional practices and outcomes in ELA and Math. Teachers will also utilize a spiraling Math program to ensure multiple exposures to grade-level concepts.


 Goal 2: Technology and Digital Literacy

  • All Maple students and staff will implement blended learning models and utilize technology strategically to individualize learning for our students and prepare them for success in the 21st Century. In our 1-to-1 iPad environment, students will extend learning beyond the school day due to our VIP Plus Program, in which all students (TK-6th grade) take home their technology devices daily.

  • Teachers will utilize a blended-learning ELA and Math model, in which students will use their devices to access individualized curriculum, tailored to their specific needs and skills. These programs will include Lexia Core 5, Newsela, Learning A-Z, and iReady Math/ELA.
  • Maple’s VIP Plus program will extend to all grade levels, including Transitional Kindergarten so that significant individualized learning can take place beyond school hours. All students will take home their technology devices each night. 
  • Maple’s Technology initiative will be supported by our Media Services Tech 1 and 2 positions to keep an inventory of and maintain technology devices and to provide tech assistance when necessary. This position will ensure devices are ready to help students meet their achievement goals at school and at home. 
  • Maple’s information literacy program will launch this year--each week during students’ library time.
  • Maple will have an after-school engineering and robotics program to increase students' 21st Century and problem-solving skills.
  • Maple will seek to identify students' passions through the online platform, Thrively. Students will then complete passion-aligned work to determine a clear course to meet their goals in their specific passion area. Teachers and staff will guide students and align their curriculum to better meet the interests of their students.

Goal 3: Safe and Secure Environment

  • Maple School will provide a welcoming, safe, and secure environment for all members of our school community. Maple will strengthen the school climate through increased focus on community events, positive behavior support principles, parental involvement, attendance rates, and suspension rates.

  • Mental Health Therapist/Counselor will work with the School Psychologist to provide mental health interventions and counseling to all at-risk students.
  • Promote positive relationships among adults, between adults and students, and among students.
  • Fund and grow the PBIS program to Gold status, including digital accounting and recognition.
  • Support school-wide activities such as assemblies, concerts, classroom competitions, field trips, partnerships, and celebrations.
  • Create/modify school environments to ensure students and staff are likely to feel safe and comfortable at school.
  • Support School-wide participation as an OC GRIP Program School through the OC District Attorney's office to support attendance, tardies, behavior, gang suppression, and drop-out prevention.
  • Regular fire, earthquake, and lockdown drills will be held to support emergency preparedness.
  • Emergency supplies will be cataloged and updated on an as-needed basis.

Goal 4: Parent Engagement

  • Maple School will provide excellent communication and customer service among all members of our school community as measured by our annual Youth Truth Survey. Maple believes the schoolhouse should be the center of the community and all efforts to increase the knowledge base of our community will show dividends in the classroom. Maple pledges to provide culturally responsive education to our students and our parents.

  • Support parent education classes in ESL, Technology, Digital Citizenship, and Balanced Literacy.
  • Maple's SSA will actively develop strong, trusting relationships with our parent group and proactively provide access to needed community services.
  • Maple, in partnership with the Fullerton School District, will provide the following parent education courses for the 2021-2022 school year: PEBSAF Parenting Classes, as well as Monthly morning workshops based on the parent, needs assessment survey.
  • School administration and Classroom Teachers will establish positive communication before the start of the school year. 
  • Information will be disseminated to families describing school programs, policies, and procedures in the language they understand.
  • The school will communicate via phone, e-mail, website, and newsletters to inform all families of current events, to celebrate success, and support academic

excellence in the language they understand.

    • Personal phone calls and face-to-face meetings will ensure that important information is conveyed directly in the language they understand.
    • Maple will actively recruit parents to serve on its Leadership and Action Teams.
    • Monthly "Coffee with the Principal Events" will engage parents in important dialogue and act as a forum for questions, concerns, and feedback.
    • Maple School will utilize social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Website) to promote school programs, practices, events, and to celebrate success.
    • Maple School will practice positive communication with community partners that include non-profits, businesses, colleges and universities, and faith-based organizations.
