The Single Plan for Student Achievement (SAP/SPSA) is a plan of actions to raise the academic performance of all
students to the level of performance goals established under the California Academic Performance Index. California
Education Code sections 41507, 41572, and 64001 and the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) require each school
to consolidate all school plans for programs funded through the School and Library Improvement Block Grant, the Pupil
Retention Block Grant, the Consolidated Application, and NCLB Program Improvement into the Single Plan for Student
Achievement.

Located in the residential area of northwest Pasadena, Cleveland Elementary School is one of 20 elementary schools in the Pasadena
Unified School District, which also includes three intermediate schools and five high schools. During the 2014-15 school year, 213
students were enrolled at Cleveland Elementary School in grades kindergarten through five. Cleveland Elementary also supports the
districts Pre-Kindergarten students with two Pre-K classrooms, one morning class and one afternoon class and two Special Day Pre-K
classroom, one morning class and one afternoon class. Total student enrollment has been declining by between 5 10% for the past
3 school years. Slightly over 90% of our students were on Free or Reduced Lunch. Our student body is made up of 72% Hispanic
students, 24% African-American students and 4% Asian students. Approximately 40% of students at Cleveland Elementary are
designated at English Learners.
Cleveland Elementary had 10 classroom teachers, K 5. We also had a 50% Science Teacher, a 50% Intervention Teacher (half of the
year), a 37.5% Library Coordinator, and one Instructional Aide. To assist with our Special Education population, we were staffed
with a School Psychologist, one Resource Specialist Program teacher and one Special Education Instructional Assistant.
Cleveland Elementary completed an upgrade to its facilities in August on 2013. The construction project provided our school three
new classrooms, a computer lab, new offices for the Family Center, a new Main Office, and office space for other staff members. The
school already had a beautiful library for the students. After the new building was completed, we removed the portable classrooms,
which allowed more playground space for the students.

In order to include our parents in our school activities, events and meetings, all communication from Cleveland is delivered in both
English and Spanish. Information during our meetings and workshops, like student data and academic goals, are also delivered in
both languages. We are constantly encouraging our parents to get involved in the activities hosted by our school. We are planning
to re-establish our school's PTA in the 2015 - 2016 school year. It will be responsible for the many events and fundraisers regularly
held at Cleveland.

Analysis

Analyze and address both implementation and outcomes.

Based on the established 2015 - 2016 base line of student No


scores on Performance Tasks and District Trimester tests,
Students in grades 1 - 5 will demonstrate 10% gains each
trimester, working towards 70% proficiency by May of 2016.

Upon analysis, we made some progress towards this goal, but our
students continue to have a difficult time with comprehending
Performance Task questions and written explanations. With the
implementation of CCSS, our math assessments require more
literacy skills than before. The students have to read the prompt,
figure out what is being asked, create a response, and then explain
their thinking in writing. Since English Language Arts has been a
weakness at Cleveland, it makes sense that it is negatively
affecting our math scores. We often have a large number of
students who are just below Proficient on the Performance Tasks.
When we analyze the results, there are a large number of students
in Basic because of weak writing skills and/or the lack of
understanding of parts of the problem. Students are lacking the
endurance to complete the tasks being presented. Many students
only partially complete the tasks.

Based on the established 2015 - 2016 base line of student No


scores on Performance Tasks and District Trimester tests,
Students in grades 1 - 5 will demonstrate 10% gains each
trimester, working towards 70% proficiency by May of 2017.

Even though we made some progress towards these goals,


Cleveland students continue to struggle with reading
comprehension and writing skills. Many of our students in grades
3 5 are at least one grade level below proficiency. Kindergarten
and 1s grade students have made some growth in reading
decoding, but continue to to struggle with Reading
Comprehension. We are seeing some progress in the reading skills
of these students, as recorded by data from Reading Partners and
Lexia Core 5 Reading. Yet, the progress is not enough to get the
students to grade level by the end of the school year. The students
are struggling to meet a standard that is constantly increasing.
Students are lacking the endurance to complete the tasks being
presented. Many students only partially complete the tasks.

During the 2015 2016 school year, we will reclassify at least Yes

During the 2015 2016 school year, we reached the goal of

becoming Long Term English Learners.


During the 2015 - 2016 school year, we experienced a great
decrease in the number of office referrals than in the previous
year. The success is that many of the referrals are from repeat
offenders for whom we found appropriate supports. Once the
necessary supports were in place, the number of referrals
decreased for these students and had a great an affect on our
overall goal of better supporting our male students. The male
support group, later named Boys to MENtor, was created during
the second semester and served to support the Social Emotional
Development of our students.

By May of 2016, Cleveland Elementary will have re- No

submission of paperwork to District Council.

During the 2015 - 2016 school year, we held 5 PTA meetings and
were on our way to re-establishing our charter. Unfortunately, 3
of our 5 Board Members moved away due to elements out of our
control. The lack of a full Board decimated our momentum and
the team stopped short of applying for a new charter.

During the 2015 2016 school year, Cleveland Elementary will Yes
decrease the number of suspensions and office referrals by
paying more attention to repeat offenders, which will then
indicate more productive instructional minutes for all
students.

At this point in the 2015 - 2016 school year, we have 39


suspensions, which is a decrease from last year's 61 suspensions.
At this point we have 141 office referrals as opposed to last year's
254. These are decreases from the previous school year.
Many of these suspensions are from students who are in foster
care and who needed a maximum amount of support upon their
arrival at Cleveland. There were many students who are
suspended multiple times. Many of these students are now
receiving the support they need to be successful in the school
environment, either on our campus or elsewhere. If the
suspensions of those students were removed from our data, you
would see a much lower rate.

School Safety,
Climate and Culture

Our data on Office Referrals mirror the same phenomenon as the


suspension data. Our students are responding positively to the
strong implementation of the Behavior RTI Tier I strategies.

demonstrated by district and site performance tasks.


We did have increased exposure to the STEAM topics during the
2015 - 2016 school year. Cleveland introduced the Engineering
Design Process to all classrooms in order to support our students'
need to practice their problem solving skills. This year, the process
was used to create projects for event celebrating the school-wide
read of The Lorax and again for Earth Day. These student projects
were not graded. The students were given feedback from their
peers, their teachers, and the community representatives who
represented an authentic audience for our students at the events.
Students were given the opportunity to improve upon their
projects as part of the Engineering Design Process.

Throughout the 2015 2016 School Year, Cleveland students


will continue with weekly exposure to STEAM topics, such as
Science, Music, Technology, and Engineering, as they will be
integrated throughout the school day within varying curricular
areas.

Students in grade levels K - 2 visit the STEAM Integration room


weekly. Students 3 - 5 visited during their 4 - 8 week modules.
Lessons are led by our STEAM Integration teacher. All teachers
continued to grow in their knowledge of the NGSS and effective
science instruction techniques.
By the end of the school year, all students were regularly using
technology as part of their regular instructional week. Students
were also using Lexia Core 5 and Accelerated Reader to increase
overall reading skills and motivation in our students.
This was our third year partnering with Education Through Music.
Standards based music instruction continued to be provided to all
students, K-5. Students in grades 3 - 5 were also provided
instruction in instrumental music with recorders and ukuleles.
PUSD Music Department also provided violin instruction for 3rd
graders and band instruction for 4th and 5th grade students who
were interested.

the underlying needs and potential barriers.


The creation of this class was successful due to the careful collaboration between the Special
Education Department, Focus Point Academy, and the staff of Cleveland Elementary. The
class is appropriately staffed and the teaching staff at Cleveland have welcomed the students
into their classrooms for mainstreaming purposes. All of the students are working towards
returning to a Comprehensive General Education Setting. They are all male students, 50% of
whom at students of color. We believe two of the four students currently in the class will be
ready to transition back to a fully comprehensive setting by the end of the 2015 - 2016
school year.
One of the challenges is filling the class with more students who are ready to transition back
into the General Education setting. The maximum number of students for the class has been
set at 10 students. There has also been a struggle identifying female students who can
enroll.
The other challenge is constantly having to protect the vision and mission of the classroom.
Many want to place students in the classroom that are not ready or do not have the goal of
transitioning back to the general education setting. Having students assigned to this class
that are not ready can cause all of the other students to regress into old patterns. It is
important that students are appropriately placed in this classroom.

Culture

During the 2016 2017 school year, Cleveland Elementary will support all students by getting trained in strengths-based strategies to employ
with students in the development of strong Social-Emotional Skills. The debrief sessions after an office referral will become more studentdirected and we will decrease in the number of in-school suspensions as a consequence so that students continue to spend the maximum
amount of time in their appropriate educational setting.

Kindergarten Transition Plan and Objectives
Objective

One of the major challenges children have to faces in their early childhood years is the transition to kindergarten. It sets the tone and
direction of a childs school career. In 2006, the Pasadena Unified School District convened a Transition to Kindergarten Focus Committee in
conjunction with the City of Pasadenas Childcare Office, Head Start, and the Los Angeles Office of Childcare. PUSD representation on this
committee includes preschool and Kindergarten teachers and administrative leadership.

Mission

The mission of this committee is to collaborate with educators and members of the community in order to plan and develop policies that will
serve to provide effective transitions from preschool to Kindergarten.

Findings

Findings by the National Center for Early Development and Learning indicate a need for greater communication among Kindergarten
teachers, families and the school. With the support of Transition to Kindergarten Focus Committee, the PUSD organized an informational
forum for parents whose children were transitioning to Kindergarten and developed Kindergarten Readiness Packets that are distributed
annually each spring to families.
Instruction is provided to families, in English and Spanish, on the use of the materials in the kit. Materials included: pamphlets on activities
parents and children could do together to get ready for Kindergarten, arts and craft supplies, transition booklet, PreK literature selections
from Open Court, picture books and much more. Our plan is to improve and expand this effort to provide support and instruction to parents
combined with engaging school readiness materials that are given to graduating PUSD preschool students.

Actions

A key component of our Early Reading First plan is to expand promising practices to support the language development and literacy of
English learners (ELs), we continue looking to expand the promising practices being developed at our three English Learner Acquisition and
Development Pilot Program schools; Longfellow, Washington and Willard. PUSD utilizes the lessons learned from these promising English
learner strategies as well as from a successful Reading First program. We continue to seek to improve alignment, continuity and the sharing
of best practices in language development and literacy for preschool and elementary schools, our proposed professional development plan
includes training teachers in the adopted reading program (now Open Court, with potential new adoption anticipated next year) as well as
training for English learner strategies and providing ongoing coach support.
Increased communication between our preschool and Kindergarten teachers will also strengthen the transition to Kindergarten and the
types of promising practices being used at our elementary schools, including the development of Individual Learning Plans, newcomer
support, intervention strategies, Reclassification, and follow-up.
