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 received school wide data updates during the year and participated in discussions on

A.) Value of using funds for instructional assistants

B.) Challenges of hiring aides to fill open positions and the alternative of increasing hours for aides

C.) Intervention initiatives: Saxon  Phonics and Dyad Reading

D.) Providing substitutes for peer-to-peer observations

E.) Updating technology (with excess funds)

F.) Possibility of increasing Instructional Technology (IT) support/ Professional Development (PD) for teachers

Academic Goals

According to mid-year data, 94%of students in Kindergarten, 70% of students in 1st grade, 69% of students in 2nd grade, 86% of students in 3rd grade are making typical or better progress in pathways of progress. 80% of students in 4th grade and 79% of students in 5th grade are at or above benchmark on their math composite score (Number Identification Fluency for kindergarten).

A strategy for improvement is implementing number talks (Structured Classroom Discussions) and ongoing use of concrete, representational, and abstract (CRA). Consistent use of Daily Common Core review.


Math Goal
By May 2020-21:
80% of students will be at or above benchmark according to their math composite score

Academic Goals

In 4th grade 60% of students are proficient or above on RISE Science from 2018-2019 school year. In 5th grade 76% of students are proficient or above on RISE Science from 2018-19 school year. A strategy for improvement is to continue the use of structured classroom discussions, interactive notebooks, and systematic vocabulary routines and systematic review.



Science:
4th Grade: 65% of student proficient on RISE

Academic Goals

According to mid-year data, 80% of students in Kindergarten, 58% of students in 1st grade, 65% of students in 2nd grade, 62% of students in 3rd grade are making typical or better progress in pathways of progress. 62% of students in 4th grade and 77% of students in 5th grade are proficient or advanced on reading inventory. Based on additional benchmark measures, 2nd and 3rd grade scores are most concerning. We believe the problem is a result of the following:
• Saxon - not familiar with the program, perhaps more training needed.
• Lack of fidelity to approved programs in SPED
• Students do very little sustained reading.

A strategy for improvement is additional training/coaching cycles for Saxon Phonics, implementation of Dyad Reading, review-refresh-retrain Reading Mastery in SPED.


ELA Goal
By May 2021:
75% of students K-3 will be in the pathway of progress
Kindergarten: Phonemic Segmentation

2nd Grade: Oral Reading Fluency
3rd Grade: Oral Reading Fluency
B. 80% of 4th & 5th grade students will be proficient on the reading inventory

School Climate Goals

Students were given a belonging survey that was created by the BLT. After analyzing the results, we have determined that a significant portion of our students may not feel safe at school (especially on the playground).
• 84% of students feel like they belong at school
• 86% of students have a meaningful connection with at least one adult in the building
• 67% of students feel safe at school

We will begin implementing a weekly Second Step lesson and at least two circles a week in each class. We will revise our belonging survey so that we are getting to the heart of why students don't feel safe or connected to school.


By May 2021, 90% of students surveyed will feel like they belong at school, have a meaningful connection with at least one adult in the building and feel safe at school.
