Data that includes students from low-income families, students of color, English learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and migratory students will be reviewed during weekly professional learning community time (PLCs) by teachers using data spreadsheets. Weekly PLC time will be set aside/protected during the contracted teachers' time. Per trimester, teachers will again review data and provide data sheets to parents and discuss: academic progress, social emotional learning, and mental health needs.
Administrators will support teachers to review the data and determine updated services by conducting regular meetings with teachers bimonthly and will also review data sheets independently to ensure low-income families, students of color, English learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and migratory students are responding to interventions.
