Dear Beverly Park Community,

Congratulations on a great 2014-15 school year! We have many accomplishments to be proud of, but I want to highlight these results we can already measure for 2014-15 success:

   • Teacher professional learning and coaching for Guided Reading practices contributed to growth from 42% of students reading at 
      level standard in June 2014 to 52% of students reading at grade level standard in June 2015
   • Implementation of Reading Partners one-on-one reading tutoring for 50 students with community volunteer tutors, students in the
      program averaged over 1.5 years growth as readers, many students moving to grade level standard as readers
   • School goal of 5/20 students with IEPs proficient in math as measured by Highline Benchmark Assessment 3 met with average of 6/20
      students with IEPs proficient
   • School goal of reduced Office Discipline Referrals (ODRs) met: less than 6/20 students received 1-3 ODRs and less than 3/20 students
      received 3 or more ODRs
   • Growth for ELL students meeting state language proficiency standard on WELPA: 6% of ELL students exit ELL at level 4 in 2014,
