Teacher and Student Success Plan
2020 - 2021


Overarching Goal

The goal for Midvale Middle School is for all students to show growth in literacy and math by ensuring that students have access to high quality instruction in a safe, positive learning environment that focuses on the overall wellness of students.

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:
 

Midvale Middle's School Community Council (SCC) members spent months discussing and simplifying our goals to focus on growth and school climate.  The SCC reviewed data and provided feedback about goals and expenditures tied to School Trust Lands. The SCC played an integral part of the development of the Teacher Student Success Plan (TSSP).

Academic Goals

29% of students are meeting expected growth on the Math Inventory (MI). English Language Learners (ELL) and Hispanic students have the lowest percentage of students making expected growth. Strategies for improvement are implementing a school-wide focus on graphing, increasing structured classroom discussion based on standards, increasing active engagement, math tutoring, and professional development for teachers to implement these strategies systemically.


60% of students will meet or exceed expected growth rates on the Mathematics Inventory (MI) in the 2020-2021 school year.

#1: Create a unified math focus on understanding and using graphs
1st Quarter: Create goals and create graphs for Reading Inventory (RI) and Mathematics Inventory (MI)
2nd Quarter: Focus on Interpreting and Analyzing Graphs
3rd Quarter: Graphing details on curriculum map
#2: Increase Structured Classroom Discussion based on standards.
#3: Math Tutoring
#4: Increase Active Engagement
#5: Implement Math Intervention, using Math 180
#6: Implement after school programing with chances for enrichment and review/intervention


The Math Inventory (MI) assessment will be given in the Fall of 2020 to create baseline data. It will be given again in Winter of 2020 to track progress. The final administration of the MI will occur in Spring.


Students will disabilities will be provided a learning environment that focuses on their individual needs, while ensuring that the priority standards are being taught. District-wide late starts will also focus on implementing math with students in disabilities. Progress will be monitored through the MI and teacher created assessments.


English Language Learners will be provided a learning environment that focuses on their individual needs, while ensuring that the priority standards are being taught. When available, additional staff will support students in their math classes. Progress will be monitored through MI and district and teacher created assessments.


Progress will be communicated through announcements sent to parents and at School Community Council meetings. Teachers will receive communication during professional development and by accessing data dashboard

Academic Goals

51% of students are meeting expected growth on the Reading Inventory. English Language Learners and students with disabilities have the lowest percentage of students making expected growth. We believe the problem is a result of not embedding literacy skills in all content areas, specifically systemic access to text and academic vocabulary. Strategies for improvement are reading intervention classes, scaffolds for literacy skills to increase students' access to text, increase structured classroom discussion based on standards, increasing active engagement, and professional development for teachers to implement these strategies systemically.


75% of students will meet or exceed expected growth on the Reading Inventory (RI) during the 2020-2021 school year.

School Climate Goals

30% of students are reporting that they do not receive recognition for following school rules in a survey of all students. We believe the problem is a result of missing implementation of PBIS procedures for following school rules. A strategy for improvement is increasing the teacher to student positive to corrective feedback ratio.


During informal and formal observations, 80% of the positive to corrective feedback will be at least a 3:1 ratio by May of 2021.



No Yes


#1: Provide professional development on restorative practices to build positive student to teacher relationships, during Friday late start meetings.
#2: Conduct informal observations on all teachers and provide feedback .


This goal will be measured through formal and informal teachers evaluations (IPOP.) Baseline data will be collected on the positive to corrective ratio in fall and then in May of 2021.


Beginning of the year and throughout the year as needed through PD, BLT, IPLCs, and Faculty Meeting.

School Climate Goals

In 2019-2020, Term 1 had 69% on track with attendance on the Early Warning System, Term 2 had 60%, and Term 3 had 53%. In 2018-19 for Term 4, we had 50% on track.


By May of 2021, student connectivity and wellness will increase as measured by improved scores from the pre and post wellness survey through the implementation of the after-school program, counseling supports, and lessons in Trojan Time on trauma-informed practices.


No Yes


Action Plan Summary:
1. Administer the wellness survey to students (fall and spring) at no cost.
2. Social-Emotional staff will review the survey and follow up with any concerns at no cost.
3. Pay to maintain a third full-time counselor at the cost of $40,000.
4. Provide professional development on facilitating restorative circles at a cost of $2,500.
5. Continue the after-school program to support social, emotional, and physical wellness at no cost (funding is provided by the School Board.)


By May of 2021, student connectivity will increase as measured by the pre and post wellness survey.
