Teacher and Student Success Plan
2021 - 2022


Overarching Goal

Academic:

  • To see proficiency levels increase to above 80% as measured by the Reading Inventory (RI).
  • To see proficiency levels increase to above 80% as measured by the Math inventory (MI).

AVID: Earn an Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) site of distinction.

Climate: Increase school wide positive to corrective feedback for every teacher to over 6:1 and specific feedback to over 5 per class observation.

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 discussed data for developing the TSSP in the January 2021 meeting and examined and had input for the draft goals and spending shared in the February 2021 meeting.

School Climate Goals

Based on a student climate survey given to students in February 2021, students responded as indicated in the table below with the following responses to the questions asked.
Survey given February 2021
My Teachers know my name and something about me: 73% positive
Strongly agree 29%, Agree 44%, Neutral 22%, Disagree 2% Strongly Disagree 2%

I know which adult at school I can talk with if I need help: 68% positive
Strongly agree 32%, Agree 36%, Neutral 18%, Disagree 6%, Strongly Disagree 8%

I have opportunities to participate in something I enjoy at school: 63% positive
Strongly agree 20%, Agree 43%, Neutral 25%, Disagree 8%, Strongly Disagree 3%

I like school. 41% positive
Strongly agree 11%, Agree 30%, Neutral 38%, Disagree 6%, Strongly Disagree 13%

Also based on the student survey there was an open-ended question about how to make Eastmont better. Many of the students recommended more clubs or activities.












During the 2021-22 school year, Eastmont will show a 10% increase in students' connection to school as measured by a student survey given at the beginning and end of the school year.


No Yes


Creating connections
Teacher Advisory (TA) class will be held 2 days per week. Teachers will loop from year to year with the same students throughout their time at Eastmont to develop deeper relationships with them.
The TA teacher will become the “case manager” for the student. This will allow for them to dig into interventions necessary, follow up on items with the student and/or parents, and help create a point of contact for each student within the school.
The Second Steps curriculum will continue to be taught in the TA class on Mondays.
Students will be advised on the benefits of our counseling center Serenity Space. They will be taught about the space and the benefits of identifying when you need to reduce your stress and anxiety levels.
In addition to academic help with the after-school program, we will have extracurricular activities that students can participate in. These will range from, but not limited to, lego clubs, debate, coding, art, technological activities. ($5,000 Supplies, TSSP) . Students will be provided a snack in the after-school program ($2,000 Supplies, TSSP)


As measured by student survey given two times per year.


Progress towards goals will be shared 3 times per year with stakeholders via faculty meetings, School Community Council meetings, school web page, and posted at school.

School Climate Goals

In order to increase a student connection in school, teachers will work on behavioral and academic feedback to students. School-wide feedback observations in every classroom in the 2020-21 school year created the following data:

Feedback Observation Data 2020-21
Average feedback frequency 101/hour
Average overall feedback ratio 7:1
Average specific feedback 4
Average behavioral ratio 3:1
Average Feedback Sequences 2


In the 2021-22 school year, Eastmont teachers will increase academic and behavioral feedback to students.
Specific feedback will increase to 8 minimum per observation.
Academic feedback ratio will increase to 5:1
Behavioral feedback will increase to 5:1
Teachers will engage in at least 3 academic feedback cycles, during an observation.


No Yes


Feedback
Teachers will participate in coaching cycles with achievement coaches, peers, and/or administrators.
Teachers will work to develop lesson plans with specific lines of questioning planned into each lesson. This will help them remember to include the feedback required for feedback cycles.
Small group instruction professional development
Hire/rehire 2 - Para-Educators to provide support for small group instruction. ($15,227, Salaries, Land Trust)


As measured by the Classroom Observation Feedback Form twice a year per teacher.


Progress towards goals will be shared 3 times per year with stakeholders via faculty meetings, School Community Council meetings, school web page, and posted at school.
