Sunset School's goal is to build and sustain a learning atmosphere that encourages every student, as defined by state and district requirements, to achieve their full potential. With a solid academic curriculum, they challenge their pupils, providing distinction at all grade levels. To achieve this result, they are dedicated to a continuous support system. At Sunset, their aim is to make all students aspire for their highest potential and "Be Your Best in Every Way" is their motto.

 

The Instructional Leadership Team at Sunset coaches and assists workers in implementing state requirements. In order to address problems, policies, and curriculum, the Instructional Leadership Team (ILT) meets regularly. The ILT, as a solution-oriented team, helps set the school's tone, pace and emphasis. In addition, to ensure strategies, challenges and instruction are addressed and followed, they act as a gateway to their grade level teams. As a brainstorming outlet, the ILT is leveraged to develop new concepts for the school, as well as a way to create creativity pockets. For employees to follow the following monthly schedule, the ILT has devised:

  • Two of the four Wednesdays each month are devoted to grade level teams participating in joint teaching practice discussions to better address the learning needs of all students as they work to meet the California State Standards ability levels.

  • One out of the four Wednesdays is reserved for teachers to concentrate on intervention and to address the needs of students who do not meet the requirements of competence.

  • For District Workshops/ Employee Development/Meeting Sessions, one out of the four Wednesdays is reserved.

  • In addition to collaborative Wednesdays, the 6.5 hours of Flex Staff Development are used by teachers to benefit from professional development opportunities tailored directly to their needs and personal growth objectives.

 

Every year, teachers take part in many organized staff development days. Mathematics, intervention, and English Language Development (ELD) guidance will require professional development. To support individualized growth, opportunities will also be provided for teachers to self-select professional development sessions. Teachers have been actively working on completing their 6.5 Flex Staff Growth hours, in line with differentiated professional development.

 

In meeting student learning needs, teachers continue to engage in programs they find beneficial and important to their teaching. For example, attendance at a SMART goal setting workshop designed to promote the professional development of teachers in the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTPs) assisted teachers in defining areas of focus, encouraged self-analysis using a rubric, and supported individual teachers in partnership with the principal in creating powerful goals. All Flex operations are pre-approved by the principal, and before submitting paperwork for final approval, teachers are responsible for completing a reflection.

 

An English Language Development Implementation Plan is implemented by a joint initiative at all grade levels to ensure that all English Language Learners obtain the English language and advance academically. Students are grouped with no more than two adjacent levels in an instructional cluster according to their overall California English Language Development Test (CELDT) standard. All ELD students are given a minimum of 30 minutes of allocated ELD instruction daily; the time devoted to ELD instruction is included in the ELD Implementation Schedule.
