Music

  • LCAP fund - we estimated $146,000. to start this program

  • Expenditures - $147,000.

  • Purchased - 518 instruments and books for all students

  • In addition to two additional full time music teachers

Introduction of our Music Program

  • Each site held a parent/ student information night
  • Each of these informational meetings were highly attended
  • At some sites, it was standing room only

At these meetings parents / students were given the opportunity to hear about all of the instruments available to those participating in this program

At the end of the meetings, students were able to touch and hold each instrument as a means of helping them identify the type of instrument that would be best for them

Parents were presented with information that would assist them with renting an instrument for their student if desired, and if not, how the school would provide these instruments

Outcomes

  • Total musicians (4th - 8th) across our schools - 628 participants

  • Many sites have been able to include our lower grades once a week/every other week by teaching rhythm, singing and recorders

  • Pride in students - the way they carry their instruments the amount of pride is evident

  • The demand for music in our schools was so high, that some schools have purchase additional instruments for their students use

Timely Intervention to move students toward college and career readiness

Smarter Balance- Data

First remember the depth and rigor of these tests!

Grade 5 math Sample:

Mrs. Phelps bought 4 boxes of crayons at the store to share with her students. Each box contained a total of 64 crayons. What is the total number of crayons Mrs. Phelps bought at the store? Explain your answer using diagrams, pictures, mathematical expressions and/or words.

Then part B and C

Part B:

Mrs. Phelps wants to give each of her students an equal number of the crayons she bought. There are 32 students in Mrs. Phelps’ class. How many crayons should each student get?

Part C:

How many more boxes of crayons does Mrs. Phelps need if she wants each of her students to get 12 crayons? Explain your answer using diagrams, pictures, mathematical expressions and/or words.

Vs the old math test

At a school, there are 704 desks to place into 22 classrooms. If the same number of desks is placed in each classroom, how many desks will be in each room?

A. 32

B. 34

C. 42

D. 44

Not nearly the same level of required depth or number of steps.

Predicted to be at grade level- 3rd
