Single plan Student Achievement On-line Application

Introduction to the Online Single Plan for Student Achievement Local District Northeast December 5 & 8, 2016 SCHOOL SITE COUNCIL and the SINGLE PLAN for STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT

The Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) is a written plan developed by the School Site Council (SSC) describing the schools program and how resources will be used to meet the supplemental

educational and related needs of participating students. The SSC must approve the 2017-2018 Online SPSA. The new online 2017-2018 SPSA template replaces earlier SPSA template versions in Word format. SPSA: CYCLE OF CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT Analyze Data and

Identify School Needs Evaluate Effectiveness Monitor

Identify Measurable Objectives Implement Relevant, Evidence-Based Strategies

CHANGES FOR 2017-2018 New Flexibility for SPSA Completion There are six Goal pages: 100% Graduation, ELA, Mathematics, EL Programs, Culture & Climate, and

Social/Emotional. Schools must complete the Goal pages for Culture & Climate and the EL Programs For all the remaining Goal pages, schools need to indicate key findings from the data analysis and identify underlying issues related to the key findings. CHANGES FOR 2017-2018

A school may choose to not address the Focus Areas for particular Goal page. If this is the case, then an explanation must be provided. For the Goal pages that the school determines to be most effective in addressing students academic needs, the school must complete Strategies/Actions and Tasks for the Focus Area. However, within each Goal page, schools are no longer required

to address all Focus Areas: Professional Development, Classroom Instruction, Interventions, and Building Parent Capacity. CHANGES FOR 2017-2018 New Flexibility for EL Focus Areas

All schools receiving Title III funds must complete the EL Programs Goal page. o If a school has been assigned a Title III Coach, this Goal page does not need to be completed, but N/A or Not Applicable needs to be indicated. Schools have the option of addressing only those Focus Areas that they determine best meet EL students academic needs (based on data analysis). Schools are not required to address all Focus Areas

on the EL Programs Goal page. CHANGES FOR 2017-2018 Culture and Climate Goal Page and Focus Areas All schools writing the 2017-2018 SPSA must complete the Culture

and Climate Goal page (Student, Staff, Parent, and Community Engagement) in its entirety, including all Focus Areas. The information on this Goal page should align with the schools Title I Parent Involvement Policy/PIP, as the PIP guides the schools work to engage parents and to build parent capacity.

SOURCES OF RESEARCH-BASED STRATEGIES The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences. Established in 2002, the WWC reviews and

assesses research evidence for educational programs, products, practices, and policies. Its goal is to provide educators with the information they need to make evidence-based decisions. The WWC link is available at:

To enter new or edit existing Strategies/Actions and Tasks or budget items click the pencil icon shown. Enter Strategies/Actions and Tasks, Action Begin & End Dates, and Measurement of Effectiveness in the appropriate grid control boxes.

To add a new Position Item, click the Add New Budget button. Note: the system will assign a temporary Position number starting with TM for new positions. Once you obtain the actual position number, overwrite the temporary Position number with the actual Position number. Save the page. For Position Items, click the dropdown selection arrows under the subheading Funding Source & Budget Description. Boxes with a blue background can accept data entries. Many positions are shown multiple times by number of hours and/or

number of days. To add a new Non-Position Item, click the Add Non-Position Budget Items button. Unlike the Position Items, Non Position Items only allow changes to the number of unit or the Total Cost. Unit selections are A for Annual, H for Hourly, S for Semester, D for Daily, M for Monthly, T for Trip, and Y for Yearly.

In cases where you know how much money to budget, but you dont know how many units to budget, divide your Total Cost by the Rate. In this example, $6,270 Total Cost/$209 per Day = 30. Enter 30 Days. You can also enter decimal values, e.g., .25, etc. REGARDING NON-POSITION ITEMS

Remember to place the exact amount(s) of non-position resources (e.g., SIM, Teacher Release Days, etc.) in the Goal(s) and Focus Area(s) where you intend to use them. Failure to do so may result in frequent SPSA Modifications. Schools are required to complete question 3, 4, 7, and 8 of the Title l Schoolwide Program Schools/ESSA 1114.
