Teacher and Student Success Plan
2021 - 2022


Overarching Goal

Indian Hills Middle School is committed to creating a safe and positive school environment that focuses on strengthening students' foundational academic skills in content literacy, reading strategies, critical thinking, and executive functioning skills.

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 School Community Council reviewed the proposed TSSP goals on February 9, 2021.  Rationale and data for the goals was presented and input was requested.  Adjustments were made as suggestions were incorporated to finalize each goal.

Academic Goals

The 2018-19 RISE data indicate that 62.6% of students reached proficiency in English Language Arts (ELA) with a growth score of 51.3. However, was the first and only year for this testing company. With COVID-19 interrupting testing in 2019-20, we are unable to have more recent comparative data. While still comparing to our last state testing, we want to ensure the data is reliable. Therefore, our goal is reflective of this reality and we are still using our 2018-19 data as a baseline.


To increase the number of students achieving proficiency or higher in ELA to 65% or greater, with a minimum gain of 3% in each grade level on the end of year state tests and student growth score of at least 55 points.

We will provide professional development support for all teachers to refine and master their use of content literacy practices and the Canyons School District (CSD) behavioral priorities through a professional development day in August. We will provide ongoing support and guidance from our Building Leadership Team (BLT) and Where Everyone Belongs (WEB) leaders through ongoing professional development throughout the year to continually strengthen our ELA outcomes. ELA teacher data teams will work with the academic coach to focus on underachieving groups by continually improving the teachers' use of structured classroom discussion, scaffolding and behavioral priorities. We will hire an additional counselor ($10,000), allowing us to better meet the academic and social/emotional needs of students. We will provide instructional support aides through our Academic Support Center to help students with ELA work completion, testing, reassessment, and tracking. We will provide rewards ($2,500) twice during the year (Winter and Spring) for all students improving their Reading Inventory scores. Grade level teams will provide ELA focused academic incentives ($5,000) through friendly inter-team competitions. We will provide additional hours for our office aides ($1,000) to compile data in overall GPA improvements to reward students in their success. We will provide students with classroom required supplies ($3,000) to facilitate academic preparedness in all classes. An instructional aide ($5,000) will be hired to help with our most vulnerable ELA population to work one on one and in small groups with the most academically challenged students. We will continue to provide online ELA resources and technology upgrades (Moby Max, Flocabulary, etc) ($4,970) to allow students greater support and academic practice to enhance and reinforce ELA concepts. We will support students struggling in ELA through a study skills class when appropriate. We will provide ELA teachers with maximum student centered time by hiring a copy aide ($3,000), allowing greater ability to utilize their time with students. Grade level IPLC teams will work with administrators, counselors, school psychologist, and social worker to identify at-risk students and develop proper, ongoing interventions. We will be implementing a school-wide program Second Step to meet the social and emotional needs of our students to allow them greater academic focus and success. Lastly, we will provide funding for teacher mini grants to pursue independent ELA academic support ideas not covered by our general plan.

Students will be targeted and discussed as a subgroup to ensure consistent support and monitoring. Content literacy supports and reading strategies will be used to support our students with disabilities.

Academic Goals

The percentage of students "On-Track" on the D and F Early Warning Indicator is inconsistent in each grade level. Our current 3 year average is 71% on-track, with a quarter low of 56%, and a quarter high of 87% respectively.


To increase the number of "On-Track" students on the D and F Early Warning Indicator to 80% or more in each grade level each quarter.

Teachers will conduct an ongoing analysis of their assessment grades to track their overall student success. With this information, teachers will adjust scaffolds and curriculum to ensure students are being successful on assessments and will schedule a re-take session during the school day if 75% of students do not reach proficiency. We will provide additional hours for our office aides (j$1,000) to compile data in overall GPA improvements to reward students in their success. We will provide students who improve their GPA each quarter with incentives and recognition ($2,000). We will provide teachers with maximum student centered time by hiring a copy aide ($3,000), allowing greater ability to utilize their time with students. We will hire an additional counselor ($10,000), allowing us to better meet the academic and social/emotional needs of students.

School Climate Goals

In past student surveys, there has been a low number of students reporting feeling recognized for following school rules as well as a difficulty creating and executing such surveys. Our school-wide rewards system has thus far consisted of paper Warrior Cards. There has been inconsistent use of these cards, and therefore it has been difficult to track the number of students receiving recognition for following school wide expectations.


To implement PBIS Rewards, a school wide rewards system, with 100% of students receiving recognition with "points" on their PBIS Rewards card.


No Yes


We will implement the PBIS Rewards digital system school-wide ($6,000). Students may use the earned points in team level stores. Grade level teams will continue to implement quarterly rewards ($4100). We will continue to implement school-wide elements of circles, WEB and restorative practice each Friday during Where Everyone Belongs (WEB) Time. We will continue to develop our WEB program and activities by supporting WEB teacher planning time ($1,500). We will continue to support the social/emotional well being of all students with the support of a full-time school counselor ($10,000), through school-wide SEL supplies and curriculum ($5,000), and we will be implementing the SEL program Second Step ($1,000). We will extend our attendance office aide ($1,000) hours to reward student attendance each week and quarter. We will extend our counseling aide hours to reward students in their academic improvements each quarter. We will actively pursue ways to inform and teach students about the dangers and effects of vaping ($3,000).


We will use the data from the PBIS Rewards system to determine the percentage of students who have received "points" as recognition.


The goal will be outlined to students during the opening class meetings and through opening PBIS lessons detailing the PBIS Rewards system. An email will be sent to parents at the beginning of the school year regarding this new system as well as regarding weekly WEB time. Emails will be sent monthly to parents communicating the monthly theme. These themes will also be communicated through the school's webpage. Progress toward the goal will also be communicated with stakeholders through quarterly reports.
