On average, sixty-nine percent of the Union Middle students are currently able to demonstrate mastery of state core standards on our Union common formative assessments. GOAL: 75% of students will maintain proficiency on Union's common assessments in all subject areas through May, 2021. (Scoring 70% or above on a common assessment will be considered proficient.) This goal will be achieved through: the development of high quality common comprehensive/unit assessments, purposeful collaboration in Instructional Professional Learning Communities (IPLCs), appropriate rigor (ready for end-of-level state assessments), and frequency (at least one per quarter) - including data for English Language Learners and students on Individual Education Plans - to support student achievement.
On February 20, 2020, the School Community Council members reviewed data measuring progress on the academic and cultural goals contained in the 2020-21 TSSP.
Due to community health directives to slow the spread of Covid-19, the Union SCC members reviewed an emailed version of the TSSP for 2020-2021. We responded to questions and incorporated feedback from council members. By April 13, 2020, the School Community Council members (via email) unanimously approved the TSSP/Continuous School Improvement Plan, the expenditures for the TSSA funding, as well as the Land Trust Plan and budget for the 2020-21 school year.
