      #1  Professional Development Academy

      Out of District Professional Development is costly and does not necessarily lead to improved instruction for students.  Therefore, the Brick School District will develop an in-district Professional Development Academy that will be linked to instructional classroom strategies and best practices.  Teachers will be provided opportunities throughout the 2013-14 school year for professional development that will provide groups of teachers (grade level subject  specific, and/or methodology based) to engage in on-going, job imbedded professional development.  On-line professional development opportunities will also be made available through organizations such as ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum and Development), (this model is supported by Adult Learning Research).

       #2  Enhancement of Walk-Through Process

      To enhance our Walk-through Process and our electronic “tool” so that the data collected focuses on “best” practices in the areas of learning objectives, questioning skills and assessment techniques.  The process will include a “feedback loop” to teachers.

       #3  Mathematics

      Our students’ growth percentile (SGP) on the NJAsk in mathematics will be higher than typical growth for students in grades 3 -8 in like schools.

       #4   NJ Teach

      Using the Marzano model/I-Observation,100% of our administrators will receive a Certification of Completion, so that our administrators will be able to assess teaching performance with accuracy and consistency.

       #5 – Language Arts

      1A. Improve informational writing for grade 3 using the Common Core grade level writing rubric, pre/post. Students scoring between 0-2 on the pretest will score a minimum of .5 increase on a post test using the NJ Holistic scoring rubric.

      1B.    Improve informative/explanatory text for grade 4 using the Common Core grade level writing standard (W.4.2) pre/post.  Students scoring between 0-2 on the pretest will score a minimum of .5 increase on a post test using the NJ Holistic scoring rubric.
