  • 1. Student Learning Plans (SLPs) 2008-09 School Year
  • 2. Why do we prepare SLPs?
    • State Law requires SLPs for students to assure that all students are on track for high school graduation.
    • Our district is committed to ensuring that students meet state standards and have skills to be successful after they graduate from our schools.
  • 3. In what content areas must plans be developed?
    • Reading
    • Mathematics
    • Writing
    • Science (beginning with students in the class of 2013; this year’s 8 th graders and students in earlier grades)
  • 4. What determines who needs a plan?
    • Scores on the WASL are used to identify students who need an SLP. Students not meeting standard need plans.
    • Students served in the district’s Learning Assistance Program (LAP) are identified through district and classroom assessments
  • 5. What about Special Education students?
    • Special education students who did not meet standard in a content area and who have an IEP in that area are not required to have an SLP.
    • We will need to work as a team to identify which special education students in our school need a plan and which do not need a plan, based on the areas being served.
  • 6. How long must a student have an SLP?
    • Students who meet WASL standards no longer need an SLP
    • Students who need SLPs are identified annually, based on the most recent test information.
    • LAP students in Grades K-3 have plans until they meet school or district standards
  • 7. How are SLPs prepared in Puyallup?
    • Classroom teachers have the primary responsibility for preparing SLPs.
    • Resource room and LAP teachers may assist in developing SLPs. Other certificated staff may participate as well.
    • We will make efforts to fairly distribute SLPs among our staff.
    • The district has developed a web-based tool to streamline the preparation of SLPs. All schools in Puyallup will be using this tool.
  • 8. What are the major parts of an SLP?
    • Student assessment information
    • SLP team members
    • School and class interventions to be used to help students succeed
    • Ways students can participate to improve their achievement
    • Ways parents can help their children at home
    • Documentation regarding plan communication
  • 9. What are school interventions?
    • These are strategies our school believes will help struggling students achieve state standards
    • Not all interventions will be appropriate for all students. Some students may need more assistance than others. For some students, active participation in regular classroom instruction may be sufficient.
  • 10. How were our school’s interventions selected?
    • Our school’s CSIP team identified our menu of school’s interventions
    • To identify the list, we consulted with other schools and district staff; and reviewed the research on successful practices
  • 11. What are our reading interventions
  • 12. What are our math interventions?
  • 13. What are our writing interventions?
  • 14. What are our science interventions?
    • At this time, we recommend teaching our new science curriculum as the best course of action.
  • 15. We are a LAP school
    • LAP students are required to have a Student Learning Plan (SLP).
    • An additional page has been added to the SLP to meet state requirements for preparing SLP for LAP students
      • This page includes student learning goals for students and actions taken to help students meet goals
    • How was the district menu of LAP Student Achievement Goals selected?
      • A district committee of LAP teachers identified goals that would be appropriate for LAP students
  • 16. When should SLPs be developed?
    • SLPs should be developed as soon as possible, but no later than the end of the first semester.
    • Plans should be communicated with parents and monitored and updated throughout the school year.
  • 17. How will our school communicate SLPs with parents?
    • Two attempts should be made to conference with parents/guardians.
    • After two unsuccessful attempts, or one no-show for a scheduled conference, the SLP will be mailed to the parent/guardian.
    • SLP’s mailed home will be signed by our building administrator.
  • 18. What are the expectations for follow-up for students?
    • In elementary schools, during the second semester teachers will hold face-to-face conference with parents whose students are not meeting standards
  • 19. How will we know if our school efforts have been successful?
    • Each year we receive reports from the district assessment office on the progress of our students
    • For example we know that:
      • XXX students with SLPs in reading went on to meet the state’s reading standard in the spring
      • XXX students with SLPs in math went on to meet the state’s math standard in the spring
  • 20. How do I access our district’s web-based SLP?
