Teacher and Student Success Plan
2021 - 2022


Overarching Goal
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:
 

Sprucewood's School Community Council discussed our proposals for TSSP during our February 22nd and March 29th meetings.  Proposals were created by the Building Leadership Team (including one teacher representative from every grade level, our coach, school social worker and principal). Our SCC asked several clarifying questions and provided adjustments to our goals.  They voted unanimously to implement this year's goals on March 29th.

Academic Goals

52 % of students demonstrated below benchmark skills according to Math Acadience Winter Composite scores. This pattern is most common in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. We believe this is a result of students needing more time practicing basic math skills at the concrete and representational practice levels. A strategy for improvement is implementing number talks and using the CRA (concrete, representational, abstract) model daily during math instruction.


By May 2022, 70% or more of Sprucewood students will demonstrate at or above benchmark skills according to Acadience Spring Composite scores.

1) provide professional development on unpacking standards so all planning is standards-based ($0)
2) provide professional development focused on number talks ($0)
3) provide professional development focused on CRA (concrete, representational, abstract) model of teaching ($0)
2) provide professional development focused on the 8 mathematical practice standards ($0)
4) teachers will deliver Tier 1 and Tier 2 math instruction within the master schedule time frames ($0)
5) plan for public practice to occur to improve instruction using two methods: ($0)
a) Teachers will videotape themselves teaching the number talk or CRA portion of their math lesson that can be viewed individually and/or with a peer or coach
b) Teachers observe peers teaching number talks and/or CRA portion of math lessons (can be cross grade)
6) we will not be using any funding from LANDtrust or TSSP for this goal as we have the materials needed to implement this year ($0)


All grades will use Acadience Spring Math Composite data.

1) Our faculty will complete data dives on Pathways of Progress data after the Winter and Spring benchmark assessments (February and May) during our scheduled monthly IPLC meetings.
2) Our School Community Council will be updated on Pathways of Progress data after the Winter and Spring benchmark assessments (February and May) during our scheduled monthly meeting.
3) Parents will receive updates on their own child's growth during February's Parent Teacher Conferences, and will be updated on the entire school's progress in February and May on our school's website, Facebook, Instagram, and Dojo platforms.

Academic Goals

29 % of students demonstrated below typical growth according to Acadience Winter Pathways of Progress data. This pattern is most common in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. We believe this is a result of students needing more effective scaffolds and meaningful reading practice opportunities during Tier 1 instruction. A strategy for improvement is implementing common comprehension strategies that incorporate scaffolded classroom discussion routines.


By May 2022, 80% or more of Sprucewood students will demonstrate typical to above typical growth according to Acadience Pathways of Progress.

School Climate Goals

27% of students are demonstrating internalizing behaviors according to Winter SRSS-IE data . This pattern is most common in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. A strategy for improvement is to have teachers participate in public practice by videoing themselves to self-assess positive to corrective feedback ratios and feedback sequences.


By May 2022, 100% of Sprucewood teachers will demonstrate 4:1 positive to corrective feedback and follow up 100% of corrective feedback with a feedback sequence to reinforce when a student demonstrates the desired behavior as evidenced by informal and formal IPOP data.


No Yes



1) hire and pay for 0.5 FTE of school social worker's salary and benefits to ensure Sprucewood has a full time Social Worker in the building 5 days a week ($43,000)
2) provide access to our wellness room (falcon's nest) for students struggling with anxiety or self-regulation ($2,000)
3) provide professional development on feedback and feedback sequences
4) teachers will participate in public practice to improve school climate by videoing themselves teaching a lesson of choice and watching individually and/or with peer or coach to analyze their positive to corrective feedback ratio, and total number of feedback sequences that follow corrective feedback when students demonstrate the desired behavior


Informal and formal IPOP feedback data


1) Teachers will participate in data dive of SRSS-IE data during IPLCs (November and February) facilitated by School Social Worker
2) School Community Council will be updated on progress during our February and May meetings
