Channelview High School is located in Channelview, TX—anunincorporated community of approximately 30,000 people locatedeast of Houston. We are part of a petrochemical area that has madeHarris County and the surrounding Houston area a wealthy part ofTexas.
Channelview High School is ethnically mixed, diverse campusthat consists of a melting pot of Hispanic, White and African-American students. There are 233 LEP students and 278students with special needs with a total student population of2250 students.
According to datacollected, Channelview HighSchool has various instructionalneeds. Their ELA & Social StudiesTAKS results are high among alleconomic groups;however, improvement is neededon Math & Science, especially inthe African-American group.
Other areas that need improvement? • Commended Rates • Parent Involvement
• Professional development for teachers • Student tutorials and funding of Math specialists positions • Pull out programs• Technology in the classroom (document cameras, projectors, laptops)
• Offer information in a multitude of formats • Increase teacher- parent communication via emails and phone calls • Involve parents on campus planning
Implementation• We decided after integrating the different interventions and strategies that we needed to develop Curriculum Based Assessment tests (CBAs). After developing the CBAs that were aligned with the curriculum, we needed to implement a system or instrument that would allow us to disaggregate the data quickly.
Introduce: AWARE• AWARE is a software program that scans the CBA and automatically downloads the information into the computer and breaks down the information based on certain criteria selected (different populations on campus like ESL or LEP, etc).
We also utilize Forethought for ourteachers. It allows teachers toinput their scope and sequenceand to design and enlist differentlesson plans so one or moreteachers can access their lessonsif they choose.
Finally…• Once a teacher has inputted their information into AWARE and the software has disaggregated the data, each administrator meets with his/her department to review the data.
• If everything seems to be working, then institutionalization of the strategies will take place.• If something needs to be changed, then we collaborate on an appropriate solution and move forward to ensure we are providing the best education to our students.
