BONNEVILLE SCHOOL

SELF-REPORTED INDICATORS

Schools may choose to describe up to two additional pieces of information about how their school is supporting students. These self-reported indicators are not factored into school accountability calculations but provide the opportunity for schools to highlight successful programs or practices in addition to the indicators included in school accountability.

SCHOOL-LEVEL FACTORS

Arts and science extension opportunities.

Bonneville Elementary has implemented arts and science into our daily curriculum by hiring a certified science specialist to teach science for all grades. Bonneville also works with Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program by providing one art teacher for grades K-6. Our community helps to raise money to offer extension opportunities in arts and science. Our arts and science programs are utilized to address the whole child by providing unique learning opportunities and hands-on experiences. Our sixth-grade team worked closely with our science teacher to increase SAGE science median growth scores. In 2018-2019 sixth grade was at 61% proficient in science and utilizing our science specialist sixth grade increased their science proficiency to 72% in 2020-2021. Bonneville will continue to work to offer unique opportunities in science and art.


STUDENT FACTORS

Increase efforts to serve MLL students.

Bonneville Elementary implemented multi-language learner (MLL) services for identified students (typically 10-20 per year). Bonneville utilizes teachers with an English Language Development (ELD) certification that meets with MLL students every day for 45-minute sessions. Our certified ELD teachers utilize the curriculum from Wonders to teach, monitor and assess our students. Based on assessments in Wonders and reports from our ELD teachers, students are showing growth in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Bonneville Elementary also assessed students by administering the WIDA assessment to every student classified as MLL. One indicator of success will be growth on the WIDA assessment from the previous year. At the end of the 2020-21 school year, all students identified as ELD increased their score on the WIDA test.
