Keystone Elementary chose to get down to grade-level specific data from our fall, winter, and spring FAST assessments, as well as building-wide PBIS office referrals and weekly Progress Monitoring and Intervention data. Our data wall will give us a chance to look at trends and take ownership of what is happening in our classrooms.
The goal is to turn data into information, and information into insight.

Data is recorded and tracked over time.
We found that last year, sometimes
Progress Monitoring inadvertently was missed or incomplete. This type of result was especially heightened during shortened weeks due to holidays or inclement weather. According to the new Differentiated Accountability process in Iowa, 90% of the Progress Monitoring and Interventions must happen 90% of the time. Our district has made it a focus to ensure that our Differentiated Accountability numbers continue to rise, and ensuring our Progress Monitoring and Intervention Time is being entered will help with this goal. our
Teachers make these two integral pieces a part of their classroom routine. On Wednesdays, reports are run for the previous week and the data wall is updated. Teachers are working hard to remember to make this a part of the routine, and as a result, Progress Monitoring happens every week and Interventions times are being entered with fidelity. As the quote says, it's all about the kids. This data wall is not about pointing fingers or calling each other out. Instead, it is about embracing the "us" mentality. These are our kids and we can work together to ensure their success.
