School Innovation & Improvement Plan

Outcome goals for this academic school year

2023-2024 SIIP At-a-Glance

Hollin Meadows Elementary School

Region 3

Jon Gates, Principal

English Language Arts - Reading by 3rd Grade


By Spring 2024, the percent of students with disabilities meeting end of year reading benchmarks will increase by 9 percentage points, (from 11% - 20%) as measured by iReady. 


  1. Expand access to evidence-based tier 1 instruction as well as intervention for students demonstrating risk in a multi-tiered system of supports. (HLP 1-5)
  2. Increase use of data (e.g., iReady, CORE, PASS, PRF, WIDA) to plan instruction and monitor progress for students demonstrating risk. (HLP 2-5)
  3. Increase interdisciplinary opportunities to build language development across content areas and throughout the school day.



By the end of 23-24 school year, the failure rate on the SOL Math assessment will decrease by at least 10% for the subgroups of students with disabilities and Black students. The subgroup of students with disabilities will increase from 20.5% (unadjusted) to 28.5% (unadjusted) and the subgroup of black students will increase from 32.2% (unadjusted) to 39.2% (unadjusted). 


  1. Improve teachers’ implementation of Framework for Engaging & Student-Centered Mathematics Instruction.
  2. Increase teacher implementation of explicit instruction and other components of effective mathematics intervention.

Chronic Absenteeism


By the end of the 2023-2024 school year, Hollin Meadows will reduce its school's chronic absenteeism rate to 15% or below as evidence by our school's chronic absenteeism data. 


  1. Strengthening messaging to staff, students and families around attendance to school. Each stakeholder should be able to understand how daily attendance matters, not only for academic success, but because school offers an opportunity to develop social and emotional skills such as listening, paying attention, problem-solving and self-regulation, all which are needed to grow and learn.
  2. Strengthen school team practices to monitor attendance data and determine need for intervention and additional support.
