Transcript of Vance Elementary Annual Report

Looking Ahead
Work with 1st and 5th grades to increase student checkouts.

Work with 4th and 5th grade to find ways to increase student use of mobile technology.

MC and ITF will block time in our schedules to ensure we each have the opportunity to meet with PLCs monthly.

MC and ITF need to block weekly time to collaborate with each other so that we can fully support teachers.

Continue to plan two book fairs a year to maintain budget and increase family interest in the Media program.

Continue EBOB team format and schedule because this proved to be successful.

Advocate for a small line item in the school budget that will provide a set amount to plan with. Form an MTAC subcommittee for purposeful technology planning.

Establish family technology nights.

Top Grade Level circulation Statistics

The Bottom line: We purchased 372 new books this year that meet the expectations of the Common Core and the Essential Standards. Magazine subscriptions were evaluated and selected based on need (some previous titles were eliminated due to lack of need and budget constraints). Online subscriptions were also evaluated (due to the high cost of each). In the future, it would be ideal to set more money aside for book purchases, which will require evaluating magazines and online subscriptions more thoroughly.
The Bottom Line: Students are coming to the library frequently to check out books. Some grade levels and students do not come in as often as others, though. This could be related to the varying length and difficulty of leveled texts and the time it takes to complete books.

Bottom Line: Book fairs are very helpful in making sure students obtain books for home libraries and in increasing our annual budget. This was the first year Vance held a Spring book fair. Both of our book fairs were very successful!
Battle of the Books
District Champions
Bottom Line: The Battle of the Books team met weekly for the majority of the school year. Students were excited about reading and were very prepared for the competition. As a result of winning the competition, we received a $200 award from Follett to purchase books.

Lab Access
All Kindergarten students come to the lab once a week. All 1st-5th grade students come to the lab twice a week.
Laptop and iPad Access

Bottom Line: Kindergarten and 2nd grade collaboration was most successful. Kindergarten also had a weekly fixed time to visit the library, increasing the total number of lessons taught. This time was beneficial for Kindergarteners, although did take time away from other grade levels. Third grade did not come frequently enough, likely because of new testing requirements.
Bottom Line: All grade levels are accessing resources. If the grade level use was high in one resource, such as media use, then technology use may be lower. This shows that teachers are using the resources they have available when time allows, but often limit it to one resource.
Some grade levels balance this very well.
Utilizing Resources
Bottom Line: Kindergarten rarely accesses mobile technology without additional ITF support due to student age. 1st grade used laptops in ELA centers daily. 2nd and 3rd grade used laptops frequently. 4th and 5th did not access laptops as much as expected.
Thank you for your time and all the support you give!
We couldn't do it without you!
4 iPads Purchased for Media Use
Bottom Line: Collaboration has been most successful in Kindergarten and 2nd Grade. Kindergarten teachers are very invitational about collaboration which is reflected in the data. The iPad initiative probably influenced the 2nd grade data. A priority next year is to increase collaboration with 4th grade.

Student Technology Ratio
Bottom Line: This year there were A LOT of new initiatives, roll outs and deployments!
Bottom Line: Technology needs have been met through a combination of school capital outlay, media funds and two ACS Foundation grants.
Kindergarten: Science and Social Studies with writing integrated
Group inquiry informed how we worked with students to build an understanding of research practices
cultural awareness unit
animal research unit

Second Grade: Social Studies with writing integrated
Individual inquiry informed how students researched an area of interest, leading them to become topical experts
cultural crosswalk unit

Fifth Grade: Social Studies with writing integrated
Individual inquiry and concept framework informed how students learned the 5th grade social studies curriculum
planned gallery walks for multiple units
utilized pictures and videos for inquiry based learning
Highlights of ways we worked together:
The Beauty of Team Teaching

2:1 student to digital learning device ratio
Bottom Line: Vance has a 2:1 ratio which includes desktops, laptops and iPads. This data needs further examination per grade level so that we understand where the highest need for additional technology. Our ratios has improved from last year. We are making progress!
