Executive Summary

 

William S. Reyes Elementary School (WSRES) is located in Chalan Kanoa village, on the island of Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.  The school is home to the largest enrollment of students over 695 from K-5 as of May of 2019.  The growing number of students enrolled at WSRES reflects increasingly diverse groups based on ethnic, social-economic backgrounds and special needs.  The student population is comprised of 17 different ethnic backgrounds. Eighty-three students receive special education services, with 7 initial evaluations and 8 eligibility lined up. The school has identified 5 students with Section 504 accommodation and 87 receiving services in the Title I reading program. 100% of the students were enlisted on the free meal program not based on income, but with an “All'' inclusion basis as granted by the USDA-FNS. WSRES currently employs 62 personnel from classroom teachers to support staff, administrative staff, and community agency partnership.

 

The school’s continued efforts in raising student achievement in Reading remains at the forefront of the school’s priorities, however all other content areas are being addressed as well. Based on previous year results, more emphasis on effectively teaching reading is necessary in order to continue the upward trend in student reading success. This year presents Year 5 of the State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) implementation. The SSIP continues to be a critical component extending across all classes from Kindergarten through Grade 3. Reading scores continues to reveal a need for improvement on college and career readiness as reported by the ACT Aspire assessments in Grades 3-5.  Additionally, focus on addressing Writing, Science and Math scores across Grades 3 to 5 will need to be addressed. Intentional and job-embedded professional development, implementation of the Daily 5 literacy center-based classroom practice across all grade levels, collaborative instructional practices, acquisition of instructional materials/ resources, and intensive student interventions continues to be the key elements the school will carry on  in order to strengthen all efforts to help raise student achievement.

 

WSR uses a variety of assessment data to determine students’ academic performances. The data presented in this report were derived from the GES School Year 2019-2020 STAR Reading, Early Literacy, and Math Proficiency Level Screening 1-3 Data along with the CNMI PSS-WSR ACT Aspire Interim 3 Assessment data up to March 2020 only.  Please note that outcome data for STAR assessments and ACT Aspire Summative are not available due to COVID-19 nation-wide pandemic school closure.

 

WSR continues to be committed to providing quality education that meets the needs of our students, staff, and parents. With our combined efforts, we aim to meet the three following goals as stated in our School-Wide Action Plan:
