Learning Recovery Plan


Identifying Academic Needs

Impacted Students:


How will schools/districts identify which students have been most impacted by the pandemic in terms of their learning progress (with a focus on the most vulnerable student populations including but not limited to disengaged students)?


Considerations:

  • Resources  (Existing and Needed)

  • Partnerships (Local/Regional, ESC, ITC, libraries, museums, after-school programs, civic organizations, etc.) 

  • Alignment (Other District/School Plans, Wellness and Success plans, remote learning plans, improvement plans, CCIP-related plans, graduation plans, student success plans, etc.)

    • Alignment with current OIP five-step processes (1-Identify Critical Needs, 2-Research and Select Evidence-Based Strategies, 3-Plan for Implementation, 4-Implement and Monitor, 5-Examine, Reflect, Adjust)

  • Core Questions to Consider:

    • What do students need to know?

    • How do we know if they’ve learned it?

    • How do we intervene for those students who have not learned it?

    • How do extend other opportunities for those who have learned it?

Budget

Spring 2021


New Lebanon Local School District will identify students that have been most impacted academically during the pandemic using several processes:

  • NWEA MAP testing- those who fall in Red and Yellow areas will be considered for intervention. Students whose overall performance is on target will receive intervention if a subtest area is identified as off track.

  • District RTI processes-- teacher teams at each grade level will review the progress of students based on MAP testing and classroom assessments to determine appropriate instruction and interventions for students.  RTI teams will monitor student progress to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions and adjust as needed.

  • State Assessment results--teacher teams and administrators at each grade level and department will review state assessment results to determine learning gaps with individual students and relative to grade-level/subject matter. Teams will analyze data for their current students, as well as the incoming cohort of students.

  • Review of Remote Learning Achievement-- the curriculum director and remote educators will review assessment data and the completion of remote work among individual students to determine the learning needs of individual students who learned remotely during 2020/21.  Those students who have been identified as disengaged will be assessed to determine learning needs and credit make-up needs as appropriate.

  • Additional evaluation tools will be adopted as needed


Assessment and evaluation for special education students and students with difficult socio-economic circumstances will be a priority based on pre-COVID achievement and the likelihood that periods of online learning and quarantine will have the greatest impact on these students. 


Assessment and intervention processes will be aligned with state standards,  the existing New Lebanon School District 20/21 Ohio Improvement Plan in addition to the New Lebanon School District/ Montgomery County ESC Wellness and Success plan.


New Lebanon Local School District partners with the Dayton Metro Library to provide literacy experiences to augment classroom reading instruction, The Montgomery County ESC partners with New Lebanon Local School District in Wellness and Success planning in addition to providing a number of resources for special education students.
