Progress Monitoring at Work: Launching a School-wide System
Hoffman-Boston is a diverse school with 400 PreK-Grade 5 students speaking 25 different languages, 65% ESOL learners and 70% eligible for free or reduced meals. We designed a three tier approach: creating a data team comprised of teacher leaders from core areas; establishing Student-centered Learning Teams, and designing a K-5 system of data protocols focused on schoolwide, grade level, class and individual monthly progress monitoring.

Student-Centered Learning Teams (SCLT’s) include teachers assigned to a grade (classroom, coaches, spec.ed.& ESOL teachers). Protocols include: monitoring and managing a comprehensive student “watch list”,monthly grade level data analysis of achievement and targeted professional development, monthly identification of intervention/ acceleration strategies for students on the “watchlist” (including instructional intervention, academic/behavioral goal, person responsible, time, assessment)and monitoring individual student acceleration plans.
