In-Service Day at Eagle Elementary

November 24, 2012

What do you do on a cold, somewhat damp day when you are a teacher at Eagle Elementary and school is not in session?  What else...have professional conversations with your colleagues about student progress and ways to help improve student achievement.  That is exactly what teachers across the district did on Monday, November 26.  


Eagle teachers started the day by having six members from the Foundation for Education present a $1,300 grant to Mrs. Dutton.  This grant entitled, "Ipads for All Learners" will provide additional resources in her classroom to use with all curriculum areas.  Thanks to the FFE for this generous contribution.


Teachers then "attacked" data.  Information was presented in regards to various types of data; demographic, achievement and perception data.  State and federal accountability data at the district and school level were reviewed.  


At the October in-service day, teachers had started reviewing reading and writing data looking for factual information about the data.  This is the first step in the process of reviewing data.  At the November in-service day teachers went further with the reading and writing data by hypothesizing why the data might be showing what it does.  They concluded the data look by discussing next steps (actions) that need to be taken.  The data that was used for this work was the NeSA-R & NeSA-W data as well as the Norm Referenced Test Data from the 5th grade students.  


As the data was reviewed it was obvious to the teachers that there is still more to find out in regards to the data.  Another data area that the building will also be looking at is math.


The work of reviewing how students are doing is an on-going job and there never seems to be enough time, but...we realize the necessity of this work and how important it is to review data in order to take student from where they are now to their next level.  A teacher's job is never done!
