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:
 

The SCC received school wide data updates during the year and participated in discussions on

A.) Value of using funds for instructional assistants 

B.) Challenges of hiring aides to fill open positions and the alternative of increasing hours for aides

C.) PD initiatives: Teacher Clarity, Structured Classroom Discussions, Number Talks, CRA Model

D.) Providing substitutes for peer-to-peer observations

Academic Goals

According to mid-year data:
53% of students in grades Kindergarten-5th, moved from below benchmark to at or above benchmark on grade-level MATH CBM.

Only 57% of 1st graders are proficient or above in Advanced Quantity Discrimination while only 53% of 2nd graders are proficient or above in Math Composite CBM. We expect that these younger grades suffered most from the effects of instructional constraints during the pandemic.

A strategy for improvement is expanding proficiency in number talks (Structured Classroom Discussions) and ongoing use of concrete, representational, and abstract (CRA). In addition, focusing on Teacher Clarity and increasing consistent use of Daily Common Core review.

Strategies for addressing the results of instructional constraint during the pandemic include, prioritizing content and learning, maintaining the inclusion of each and every learner and identifying and addressing gaps in learning through instruction while avoiding the misuse of standardized testing to place kids into high or low ability groups or providing low levels of instructional rigor to lower performing students.


Math Goal
By May 2022:
A. Increase the number of students at or above benchmark on Acadience Math Composite Scores from 70% (January 2021) to 80%.
B. Increase the number of students moving from below benchmark on Acadience Math Composite Scores to at or above benchmark from 53% (January 2021) to 75%.
C. Raise overall school proficiency on RISE Math scores in grades 3-5 from the 75th percentile (May 2019) to at or above the 80th percentile of demographically similar schools.
