Teacher and Student Success Plan
2021 - 2022


Overarching Goal

The goal for Midvale Middle School is for all students to show growth in literacy and math by ensuring that students have access to high quality instruction in a safe, positive learning environment that focuses on the overall wellness of students.

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:
 

Midvale Middle's School Community Council (SCC) members spent months discussing and simplifying our goals to focus on growth and school climate.  The SCC reviewed data and provided feedback about the goals and expenditures tied to School Trust Lands. The SCC played an integral part in the development of the Teacher Student Success Plan (TSSP).

Academic Goals

29% of students are meeting expected growth on the Math Inventory (MI). Multi-Lingual Learners (ML), Hispanic, and African American students have the lowest percentage of students making expected growth. Strategies for improvement are implementing a school-wide focus on percentages, increasing structured classroom discussion based on standards, increasing active engagement, math tutoring, and professional development for teachers to implement these strategies systemically.


60% of students will meet or exceed expected growth rates on the Mathematics Inventory (MI) in the 2021-2022 school year.

Students with disabilities will be provided a learning environment that focuses on their individual needs, while ensuring that the priority standards are being taught. District-late starts will focus on the best strategies for implementing math with students with disabilities. Progress will be monitored through the Math Inventory (MI), iReady assessments, and teacher created assessments.


Multi-lingual learners will be provided a learning environment that focuses on their individual needs, while ensuring that the priority standards are being taught. When available, additional staff will support students in their math classes. We will also provide a Math 180 intervention class for qualifying students.

The Reading Inventory (RI) assessment will be given in the Fall of 2021 to establish baseline data. It will be given again in the Winter of 2021 to track progress. The final administration of the Reading Inventory (RI) will occur in the Spring of 2022.


Students with disabilities will be provided a learning environment that focuses on their individual needs, while ensuring that the priority standards are being taught. Focus will be on ensuring that the Individual Education Plan (IEP) is being met and appropriate supports and classes are provided. Progress monitoring will be monitored through the RI, Read 180 assessments, and teacher created assessments.


Multi-lingual learners (MLs) will be provided a learning environment that focuses on their individual needs, while ensuring that the priority standards are being taught. The MLL co-teachers will also provide support to the students. Progress will be monitored through the RI, Read 180 assessments, and teacher created assessment.

School Climate Goals

Currently, 79% of the formal and informal observations have a positive to corrective feedback ratio of at least 3:1. We believe that we can increase this percentage by providing professional development on restorative practices and building student-to-teacher relationships. We will continue to provide training, participate in public practice, and increase administrative and coaches presence in teachers’ classrooms.


During informal and formal observations, 80% of the positive to corrective feedback will be at least 3:1 ratio by May of 2022.


No Yes


Action Plan Summary:
1. Provide professional development on restorative practices to build positive student-to-teacher relationships at a cost of $10,000.
2. Purchase PBIS Rewards to encourage positive feedback at a cost of $3,200.
3. Conduct informal and formal observations on all teachers and provide feedback at no cost.


This goal will be measured through formal and informal teacher evaluations (IPOP). Baseline data will be collected on the positive to corrective ratio in fall and then in May of 2022.


Progress will be communicated to stakeholders in fall, winter, and spring during professional development, School Community Council (SCC), Building Leadership Team (BLT), and Instructional Professional Learning Communities (IPLCs).

School Climate Goals

For the first time this year, we administered the wellness survey. On the initial responses, 81.8% of the students agreed that they know an adult at school who they can talk with and get help. Students also responded that 90.2% of them agreed that adults at our school listen to their thinking and understand their concerns. We will continue to focus on providing supports for all students and ensuring that students feel listened to and valued.


By May of 2022, student connectivity and wellness will increase as measured by improved scores from the pre and post wellness survey through the implementation of the after-school program, counseling supports, and lessons in Trojan Time on trauma-informed practices.


No Yes


Action Plan Summary:
1. Administer the wellness survey to students (fall and spring) at no cost.
2. Social-Emotional staff will review the survey and follow up with any concerns at no cost.
3. Pay to maintain a third full-time counselor at the cost of $40,000.
4. Provide professional development on facilitating restorative circles at a cost of $2,500.
5. Continue the after-school program to support social, emotional, and physical wellness at no cost (funding is provided by the School Board.)
6. Pay for supplies for lessons taught in Trojan Time at a cost of $3,000.


The wellness survey will be administered in the Fall of 2021 and Spring of 2022 to compare the growth on the wellness responses.


Progress will be communicated to stakeholders in fall and spring during professional development, School Community Council (SCC), Building Leadership Team (BLT), and Instructional Professional Learning Communities (IPLCs).
