Teacher and Student Success Plan
2021 - 2022


Overarching Goal



By May of 2022 50% of students at East Midvale K-5 will reach benchmark for Math computation.  98% of students K-5 will who scored proficient at the beginning of the year will score proficient at the end of the year.  70% of students who scored below proficient at the beginning of the year will score at or above benchmark by the end of the year.  No students who score below benchmark will drop to below benchmark.  60% of students who score well below benchmark at the beginning of the year will move to below or at or above benchmark by the end of the year.  




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:
 

  On March 10th the SCC met to discuss the proposed changes to the TSSP.  The parents were informed about the discussions had with the teachers to shift the focus from Reading to Math.  It was discussed that the teachers were excited about shifting the focus as we have been focusing on Reading for about six years straight.  The SCC shared their support for the teachers and agreed that it would be good for their to be some attention to math and that for many students its would be a good way for them to shine if they weren't a strong reader and were better at math.  It was discussed that it would be nice for the interventionists to provide math intervention as well as reading interventions.

Academic Goals

Currently 96% of students are remaining at or above benchmark on Acadience math Benchmark (K-BQD, 1st-AQD, 2-5 Composite), 47% are currently advancing from below to at/above benchmark on Acadience math Benchmark (K-BQD, 1st-AQD, 2-5 Composite), 16% of students are currently dropping from below benchmark to well below benchmark on Acadience math Benchmark (K-BQD, 1st-AQD, 2-5 Composite), 30% of students are advancing from well below to at/above or below on Acadience math Benchmark (K-BQD, 1st-AQD, 2-5 Composite). We believe that this is due to the fact that teachers have not had the opportunity to align and identify essential standards, discuss instructional strategies, and do the vertical alignment work necessary. Additionally we have not had formal training and time to identify a process for unpacking math standards, create objectives, success criteria, and daily assessments. Finally we believe that this is also due to a lack of training in understanding Depth of Knowledge and how to accurately identify different DOK level questions for math. Some strategies for improvement would be collaborative team planning around unpacking standards, creating objectives, success criteria, and informal and formal assessments that are aligned to the standards.

1. By May 2021 Teachers at East Midvale will identify prioritized standards for math, and create a contextualized scope and sequence that highlights which math standards will be taught to mastery and which standards will be taught in an integrated manner. Teachers will meet with the grade levels above and below to discuss what gaps they see year to year and identify instructional strategies for each domain that will enhance student learning from year to year.
2. By September 2021 East Midvale teachers will identify a process for unpacking math standards. They will use this process to cohesively plan out Learning Objectives, Success Criteria, and daily assessments for each standard being taught.
3. By October 2021 100% of teachers will have posted, relevant, and current objectives and success criteria for each math lesson as evidenced by two administrator or coach walkthrough observations.
4. By December 2021 East Midvale Teachers will be able to identify DOK 1, 2, 3, and 4 level math questions and generate Common Formative Assessments for math that have a balance of DOK levels.
5. By November 2021 80% of students East Midvale will accurately identify and restate the learning objectives and success criteria for a math lesson when asked by an administrator or coach.
6. We will spend $39,038 for a .5 teacher, $875 for the "Teacher Clarity Playbook", and $5,000 on supplies for Math nights for families. $36,259 for two math interventionists (addendum).


Admin walkthroughs looking at posted objectives and success criteria as well as student responses to the following questions: What are you learning?, Why are you learning this?, How will you know when you learned it?.
Monthly progress monitoring of Acadeince Probes (BQD, AQD, COMP, CAP) and Acadeince Benchmark Testing
We will analyze assessments for the correct balance of DOK levels.


Teachers will include more explicit vocabulary instruction and more structured classroom discussion to support students with disabilities. Teachers will collect video evidence of the practices in their classroom as well as admin walkthroughs.


Teachers will include more explicit vocabulary instruction and more structured classroom discussion to support students that are english language learners. Teachers will collect video evidence of the practices in their classroom as well as admin walkthroughs.


Progress will be communicated monthly at SCC and BLT meetings

Academic Goals

Currently 62% of East Midvale students are reaching typical or better growth in Acadience Pathways of Progress. We believe the problem is due to a lack of consistent engagement with the Foundations Block and not enough embedding of English Language Development strategies. A strategy for improvement is continued collaborative team planning with the foundations block, increasing engagement of all students during reading instruction and embedding multiple high quality language development strategies across all content areas.


85% of students with a beginning of year composite will make typical or better growth on Acadience Pathways of Progress for reading by May 2022.

1. By December 2021 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. Teachers will create video evidence and maintain a library of high quality implementation of the systematic vocabulary routine, structured classroom discussions, and show 90% student engagement during foundations.

2. By October 2021 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.
4. We will spend $18,436 for a 28 hours per week intervention assistant.


We will use monthly progress monitoring including monthly IPLC data dives. We will also use the Acadience benchmark data and Acadience Pathways.


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.

School Climate Goals

Currently at East Midvale we have 55% of students on track for attendance, 16% at risk, 15% off track, and 13% with severe attendance. We believe this is due to the fact that many students have experienced quarantine, are not engaged with school, or experiencing other challenges that are preventing them from attending regularly. This is impacting student growth and achievement as measured by reading and math benchmarking scores that are below proficient or for students not achieving adequate progress due to lack of regular attendance. Strategies for increasing attendance will be continued implementation of school wide positive behavior interventions and supports, following the school Attendance plan and policy, and increasing communication with parents about the importance of daily attendance, and a plan for implementing and tracking a Tier 2 attendance intervention.


By May of 2022 East Midvale will increase our average daily attendance to 90%.


No Yes


We will continue to implement school wide PBIS with our Dojo point system to ensure school is a positive place that students want to be. In August 2021 teachers will be trained on the components of our Attendance plan, including when to call home, how to track efforts to get students to school, and how and when to refer a student to our Students Support Team (SST) for an attendance intervention. We will implement Tier 2 interventions as approved by the SST throughout the school year and review progress at our weekly SST meetings. Admin will send the necessary compulsory attendance letters when students hit certain numbers of unexcused absences as outlined in our attendance policy. We will use ParentSquare to set up meetings and communicate with parents in their native language to address attendance issues. We will post our average daily attendance and make daily announcements to encourage school wide awareness of this goal.
We will spend $3,000 on Field Trip Admissions, $5,000 on Field Trip costs for transportation, $7500 on Supplies, and $8,441 for supplies to support our School Wide Positive Support Plan.


We will calculate our average daily attendance and look at the trends over time, from term to term.


We will communicate progress in weekly parent communications, monthly with School Community Council, and monthly with faculty meetings.
