Teacher and Student Success Plan
2020 - 2021


Overarching Goal


School Community Council and Staff Involvement in the TSSP
School Community Councils play an integral part in the development and monitoring of TSSP goals. Please briefly describe the participation of SCC members in the development process of this TSSP:
 

The SCC was updated on the data the school has collected on the student's progress.  The SCC was also involved in discussions about what goals were needed to help our students to be more successful.

Not Entered
Academic Goals

23.4% of students are not yet proficient in literacy (based on Reading Inventory and Curriculum Based Measure mid-year data). This pattern is most common in our 2nd and 3rd grade students and our SPED students. They are not making adequate progress along their individualized projected targets. We believe the problem is a result of lack of understanding about how to appropriately engage SPED students in Whole Group Instruction through explicit instruction, diagnosing student need and connecting the appropriate intervention.

A strategy for improvement is
improving our use of Structured Classroom Discussion (and its application in writing),
standards-based, purposeful planning with specific attention to contextualizing instruction and
the elements of Teacher Clarity (Learning Intentions, relevance and Success Criteria), &
refining our use of explicit instruction and our application of interventions in Tier 2 and 3.


In Literacy (based on Reading Inventory in 4th and 5th grade and Acadience data K-3), from Fall 2020 to Spring 2021, we will increase our school-wide (K-5) proficiency percentage by 8%.

In order to meet our goal we will focus on:
-Explicit teaching with Teacher Clarity
-Structured Classroom Discussion Phase 1 (supporting English Learners and all)
-Optimizing Tier 2: Diagnosing student need & connecting appropriate intervention; Using data; Connecting appropriate measure; using Pathways of Progress and how to apply to Student Intervention Plans (SIPs), and appropriate deliberate practice.
-We will have professional development to help the teachers improve their instruction, especially with teacher clarity and structured classroom discussion. We will provide materials and substitutes where needed.
-We are given a .75 Beverly Taylor Sorenson (BTS) teacher but we will fund the additional .25 out of TSSA so that we can use her additional time to help with Tier 2 interventions in targeted classrooms. We will also hire classroom aides that will also help with individual classroom interventions that will be determined by the achievement coach and teacher collaborating together.
-Our kindergarten teachers will need to meet 3 times a year in a full day IPLC to get professional development in how to do teacher clarity and structured classroom discussion with their little ones.
-To ensure that every student has is able to make adequate progress we will offer before and after school extended learning opportunities.
-We will be purchasing Lexia or a comparable program to help our kindergarten and 1st graders master the literacy goals we have for them.


4th & 5th Grade: Reading Inventory, K-3:Acadience Learning Measures


Our action plan specifically targets students with disabilities. The refined implementation of Explicit Instruction, Structured Classroom Discussion & focusing on appropriate interventions as part of our Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) process will likely increase performance of our students with disabilities. We will monitor progress with Acadience measures that match interventions and data that supports the targeted Individualized Education Plan (IEP) goals.


Our action plan includes focus on Structured Classroom Discussion & explicit instruction with Clarity which is likely to support the increase language development of our English Learners.

Academic Goals

35.5% of students are not yet proficient on RISE Science. This pattern is most common in our SPED and 4th grade students. We believe the problem is a result of lack of resources (in English and Chinese), planning and standards-based common formative assessments (CFA). A strategy for improvement is becoming more knowledgeable about the Science standards and backwards designing curriculum and assessments.


90% of our teachers will be effectively teaching the new science standards measured by their adherence to the indicators on our fidelity walkthroughs and outlined in their detailed lesson plans/backwards design plans.

In order to meet our goal we will focus on:
-Explicit teaching with Teacher Clarity
-unpacking the science standards to understand them better and effective planning/backwards design & assessments. We will do this on a couple of days outside of teaching days to allow the teachers the time and resources needed to plan for the new science standards and curriculum. We believe the Chinese classes will need additional materials purchased in Chinese that will not be provided by the district or state.

School Climate Goals

27.3% (externalizing) & 38.1% (internalizing) of students are presenting at-risk behaviors according to the Student Risk Screening Scale - Internalizing/Externalizing (SRSS-IE). This pattern is most common in1st Grade (Internalizing/Externalizing), 2nd grade (internalizing), 3rd grade (Internalizing/Externalizing), 4th grade (externalizing) 5th grade (Internalizing/Externalizing). We believe the problem is a result of fidelity and use of Restorative Practices and Second Step Curriculum and that our Positive Behavior Intervention Systems (PBIS) system (including Dragon Scale motivators) has become unmotivating. A strategy for improvement is revamping our PBIS System school-wide and continuing our implementation and use of Restorative Practices and our Second Step Social/Emotional Learning curriculum.


90% of our teachers will be effectively implementing Restorative Practices and the Second Step Social/Emotional Learning curriculum measured by their adherence to the indicators on our fidelity walkthroughs.


No Yes


To meet our goal we will focus on evaluating and growing our understandings of Restorative Practices, better integrating Second Step curriculum and upgrade the effectiveness of Positive Behavior Intervention Systems (PBIS) school-wide. We will use TSSP money to purchase supports for this program. There are several different kinds of supports including incentives and books as well as workbooks and worksheets.
-We will hire an additional behavior aid to specifically work on PBIS strategies during recess time and implement a recess level system.
-We will hire additional aides to help us implement and support our second steps, restorative practices and PBIS in the school and classroom.
-We will be revamping out PBIS program this summer and depending on what that ends up looking like we will need to purchase Incentives for both students and teachers to ensure we get everyone on board. We will also need to purchase the tools to help students know what this new revamped program will look like. This will include but is not limited to posters and parent informational forms.

Summary of Expenditures for all Goals
Summary - replace me

If we end up with additional funds we will use those funds to purchase some additional or replacement chrome books and iPADs.  This will help us as we implement the math and reading goals with the new software that we are intending to purchase.  We will also purchase computers and iPads for some of the teachers whose current digital equipment is not enough to run the programs that we are working towards using. We will also consider using any extra funds to pay for supplies and software that can enhance our goals as well as additional substitutes to enable us to have additional professional development.
