Teacher and Student Success Plan
2021 - 2022


Overarching Goal

Close the achievement gap between students who are "At Risk" and students who are not "At Risk" by at least 2% per year in (on track for graduation) graduation rate, absenteeism, and academic performance.

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:
 

In our February SCC meeting we had a discussion regarding how we can best use our TSSP and Land Trust funds to help get students back on track after the worldwide pandemic. We discussed the possibility of adding a school wide approach to provide improved academic supports for our middle ground students. Many of our existing programs were also discussed including, summer school supports, credit recovery efforts, extended math year, and supports for English language learners.

Academic Goals

Through informal and formal classroom observations it has become apparent that improving teacher clarity is still an important area of focus for Brighton High School teachers. Through continued professional professional development, formal and informal observations, and teacher feedback, we will improve teacher clarity in every classroom at Brighton High School.


Brighton High will increase the number of teachers that are providing daily learning intentions and success criteria to students. We will use IPOP data as well as targeted teacher clarity walkthrough observation tools that specifically measure efforts at teacher clarity in an effort to collect baseline data and measure progress.

We will provide all teachers in our four core areas of instruction with 4 days of professional development dedicated to improvement of teacher clarity. Specifically addressing learning intentions, common targets, common pacing, and common formative and summative assessments.


Each core content team will provide the BHS Administration with a pacing plan specific to Brighton High, as well as formative and summative assessment artifacts created collaboratively through the professional development efforts.


Through the development of common targets and assessments, each content team will develop a better understanding of learning targets and how they can best address the needs of learners with special needs.


Through the development of common targets and assessments, each content team will develop a better understanding of learning targets and how they can best address the needs of multi-lingual learners.


Progress will be communicated to stakeholders at the end of the 2022 school year through our anual report.

Academic Goals

Based on data collected and reviewed as a BLT, Brighton has noticed a considerable gap in academic performance between our students that are economically disadvantaged versus those students that are not. We will continue to try and improve our practices in an effort to reduce this gap every year.


Brighton High School's at risk students are at much greater risk of not graduating, based on Early Warning System (EWS) indicators in Data Dashboard. Brighton High School will reduce the EWS discrepancy between students who are at risk and the general population by at least 2% in each of the areas of graduation rate, attendance and academics (GPA and F's and D's) during the 2021-22 school year.

School Climate Goals

Brighton High's lowest indicators on the school climate survey include parent concerns regarding a lack of emotional supports, student safety, and school communication with the home regarding what they need to know about their child.


Brighton High will improve indicator #5 (emotional well-being) and indicator #8 (communication with home) to meet or beat the high school average for indicators #5 and #8 for fall 2021 parent survey. Through increasing our efforts to improve student safety and school climate we will also be increasing student engagement and well being which will contribute to addressing our achievement gap in our early warning system measurements of (on track for graduation) graduation rate, absenteeism, and academic performance.
