Our three goals areas for this year include:Improve reading comprehensionMath FluencyProcess WritingKellogg Elementary participates in MiBLSi (Michigan's Integrated Behavior and Learning Support Initiative). Through MiBLSi, we worked on implementing research based reading interventions and school wide Positive Behavior Supports. Because a number of other schools from Kalamazoo County also participate in the trainings, we were able to share ideas with other schools and problem-solve specific issues within our building. MiBLSi pairs academic and behavior interventions.Kellogg uses data from our Core Reading Program, DIBELS, Delta CBM, STAR, MEAP,and SWISS to analyze and make changes to our instruction in order to increase student learning.
