Teacher and Student Success Plan
2020 - 2021


Overarching Goal

By May 2021 teachers will have demonstrated mastery with cohesively planning their Tier One English Language Arts block, and maintaining 90% engagement during their foundations block to increase the percentage of students K-5 who reach at or above typical progress according to the Acadience Pathways of Progress, from 66% (May 2019) to 85% by May 2021.  As of January 2020 59% of our whole student population is making typical or better progress according to the Acadience Pathways of Progress. Comparatively, 52% of our students who are economically disadvantaged are making typical or better progress.  52% of our students with disabilities are making typical or better progress, and 54% of our students who are English learners are making typical or better progress.  By Mayth 2021 all teachers at East Midvale will show competency in embedding multiple high quality English Language Development essential practices within their ELA instruction as demonstrated by multiple recordings using their SWIVL or I-pad and corresponding implementation checklist. 

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 East Midvale SCC was able to give feedback on the specifics of our plan and the expenditures.  Overall the feedback was good and that they feel confident that focusing on attendance and reading is still what the school needs to do.

Academic Goals


59 % of students are at typical or above in Acadience Pathways of Progress. We believe the problem is due to a lack of consistent high student engagement during the ELA block. A strategy for improvement is implementing Structured Classroom Discussion. Our students need to be talking and they need to be talking about the content in the lesson.


By May 2021 85% of students K-5 will achieve typical or better progress on the Acadience Pathways of Progress measure.

1. By December 2020 all teachers at East Midvale will show competency in embedding multiple high quality English Language Development essential practices within their ELA or Math instruction as demonstrated by multiple recordings using their SWIVL or I-pad and implementation checklist.

2. By December 2020 teachers at East Midvale will demonstrate that 90% of their students remain engaged during the Foundations Block every day as evidenced by drop in observations by administration and coaches and recorded lessons using the on-task observation form.

3. We will continue to provide Tier Two reading interventions during Skill Based Instruction to provide targeted reading skill development for small groups and individual students.




We will use the Acadience Pathways of Progress to measure progress towards this goal.


By focusing on engagement levels and English language development strategies we will be more purposeful and diagnostic about what strategies work best to keep students engaged with reading content. English language development strategies will help students with disabilities practice and use language more explicitly which will help overall academic performance.


By integrating research based English Language Development strategies in the classroom, students who are learning English will have more opportunities to speak and use language in content areas which will increase their overall proficiency over time with reading skills.


We will communicate progress in School Community Council meetings, monthly newsletters, and parent teacher conferences.

School Climate Goals


East Midvale Elementary currently has 67% consistent attendance school wide as reported by USBE School Grades site. We believe this is due to a lack of engagement, low confidence in school safety, and inconsistent implementation of school wide PBIS. A strategy for improving attendance is to have clear and consistent school-wide PBIS, implementation of a school wide Social Emotional curriculum, and improved engagement.


We will increase our average daily attendance to 90% by January 30th 2021.


No Yes


1. PBIS makeover-We will establish expectations and routines with holding morning meetings to focus on building relationships with students and their teachers and to strengthen student relationships with each other. We will continue to train our staff on and use trauma informed practices, and restorative practices as part of our school wide MTSS implementation. We will update our school store and Eagle ticket system to be more specific and targeted to overall school climate goals.

2. Daily tier 1 Social Emotional Learning Curriculum in every classroom- We will use 2nd Step Tier One as a tool for students to learn social emotional skills like self regulation, problem solving, peer conflict resolution, and as a way to tie in restorative practices within Tier One instruction.

3. School-wide and classroom incentive programs - The "Star Wars On Time Alliance" is a program where teachers keep track of how many students are on time and add lego pieces to a Star Wars lego ship. When the ship gets built the class gets a party. We will add to this program to increase incentives and a focus on attendance as the driver for classes, grade levels, and the whole school getting access to incentives. This is where the TSSP budget is really supporting the school in spending general supplies on incentives like more lego things to build, fun and creative class parties, and whole school assemblies where we celebrate increases in attendance.

4. Engagement walkthroughs associated with academic goals: We are also tying in the increase in engagement through the use of essential language development practices as a piece to keeping students excited in attending everyday. We believe if we are planning and purposeful with our engagement our attendance will improve.




We will use our average daily attendance to determine if our plans are successful.


We will communicate with stakeholders via school newsletters, teacher emails, and on the school website on a weekly basis to keep people excited about improving attendance. We will post weekly numbers on a poster in high visibility place in the school.
