Student Learning Plans (Sl Ps)2008

  1. 1. Student Learning Plans (SLPs) 2008-09 School Year
  2. 2. Why do we prepare SLPs? <ul><li>State Law requires SLPs for students to assure that all students are on track for high school graduation. </li></ul><ul><li>Our district is committed to ensuring that students meet state standards and have skills to be successful after they graduate from our schools. </li></ul>
  3. 3. In what content areas must plans be developed? <ul><li>Reading </li></ul><ul><li>Mathematics </li></ul><ul><li>Writing </li></ul><ul><li>Science (beginning with students in the class of 2013; this year’s 8 th graders and students in earlier grades) </li></ul>
  4. 4. What determines who needs a plan? <ul><li>Scores on the WASL are used to identify students who need an SLP. Students not meeting standard need plans. </li></ul><ul><li>Students served in the district’s Learning Assistance Program (LAP) are identified through district and classroom assessments </li></ul>
  5. 5. What about Special Education students? <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  6. 6. How long must a student have an SLP? <ul><li>Students who meet WASL standards no longer need an SLP </li></ul><ul><li>Students who need SLPs are identified annually, based on the most recent test information. </li></ul><ul><li>LAP students in Grades K-3 have plans until they meet school or district standards </li></ul>
  7. 7. How are SLPs prepared in Puyallup? <ul><li>Classroom teachers have the primary responsibility for preparing SLPs. </li></ul><ul><li>Resource room and LAP teachers may assist in developing SLPs. Other certificated staff may participate as well. </li></ul><ul><li>We will make efforts to fairly distribute SLPs among our staff. </li></ul><ul><li>The district has developed a web-based tool to streamline the preparation of SLPs.

  9. 9. What are school interventions? <ul><li>These are strategies our school believes will help struggling students achieve state standards </li></ul><ul><li>Not all interventions will be appropriate for all students.
