Teacher and Student Success Plan
2022 - 2023


Overarching Goal

The overarching goal is to increase student reading skills.  We want to focus on the standardized components of the new curriculum from Wonders, 95% Group, 95% Phonics Lesson Library (PLL), and 95% Phonological Awareness (PA).  We want to strengthen our teachers' skills in these components.

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:
 

School Community Council (SCC) helped develop goals for the 2022-2023 school year.  We have discussed data and student growth at each meeting.  We have discussed parent concerns and accolades at each meeting.  As a team we looked at what we believe are the most important areas of focus for the coming year.  Data showed our reading progress has dropped.  This could be due to Covid related absences and online learning.  As a team we decided to focus our efforts in reading.  SCC members offered suggestions and ideas to help promote reading in and out of school.  There was a lot of discussion about technology use and best practices for its use in the classrooms.

Not Entered
Academic Goals

Students are not making sufficient progress to advance to the next levels of proficiency. This pattern is most common in below and well below students based on Acadience reading composite and below basic and basic students based on Reading Inventory. We believe this is a result of deficits in phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension. A strategy for improvement is ensuring that every teacher implements the district protocols for whole group instruction using Wonders, and the foundations piece using 95% Group, and providing small group instruction regularly, using 95% Phonics Learning Library, and 95% Phonological Awareness. Another strategy for improvement is continuing to have interventionists working with students in small groups every day. Another strategy for improvement is teachers teaching in small groups using the 95% Phonics Lesson Library (PLL) in grades 2-5 and 95% Phonological Awareness (PA) in grades K - 1 for students who fall in the below and well below category.


By spring 2023 Willow Springs will increase the percentage of kindergarten students who are proficient in Nonsense Word Fluency/Correct Letter Sounds by 4%, from Middle Of Year to End Of Year

By spring of 2023 Willow Springs will increase the percentage of 1st grade students who are proficient in Nonsense Word Fluency/Whole Words Read by 10%, from Beginning Of Year to End Of Year

By spring 2023, 75% of students in grades 1, 2, and 3 will achieve typical or better progress as measured by the Pathways to Progress in Acadience.

By spring 2023, 70% of all 4th and 5th grade students will meet or surpass their expected growth goal as measured by Reading Inventory in the Expected Growth Goals report.

We will hire 3 aides to work in our kindergarten classes for $36,000
We will hire 1 Booster teacher to make booster class sizes smaller for $16,000

We will hire 7 reading interventionists to work with all grade levels for $84,000
We will purchase technology Laptops, iPads, headphones, Apple TVs, chromebooks for $7000

We will provide professional development on Wonders, 95% Group, 95% Phonics Learning Library (PLL), and 95% Phonological Awareness (PA). We will provide professional development on the use of calming tools. We will provide training on the best practices for technology use. Technology implementation will be through Reading Plus, Lexia, and Lexia English. We will increase public practice through allowing teachers to do a video reflection of their teaching in English Language Arts or through targeted observations by the achievement coaches.


We will assess students in the fall using Reading Inventory for 4th and 5th grades and look at each student's Expected Growth Goal. Fall testing will include Acadience Benchmark Testing for kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. Midyear check for 4th and 5th grades will be measured by the winter Reading Inventory and student progress toward the Expected Growth Goal. Midyear check for kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades will be measured by the winter Acadience Benchmark tests and Acadience Pathways to Progress reports. Reading Plus usage will be also be monitored monthly. Lexia usage will be monitored monthly. Implementation of the new reading programs (Wonders, 95% Group, 95% Phonics Learning Library (PLL), and 95% Phonological Awareness (PA) will be monitored through checklists, walkthroughs, targeted observations, and coaching cycles.


Students with disabilities will be in class during core instruction in reading. They will participate in Wonders and 95% Group core instruction. They will be given the proper scaffolds to be successful. They will also receive small group instruction from their homeroom teacher, tier 2 or tier 3 instruction from an aide or Wonderworks with the resource teacher. They will have time on Reading Plus or Lexia. Implementation will be monitored through checklists, walkthroughs, and coaching cycles.


Language production will be increased through training in and implementation of Wonders and 95% Group. We feel there are more opportunities for classroom discussion and opportunities to respond with these new programs. Implementation will be monitored through checklists, walkthroughs, and coaching cycles. English Learners will use Lexia English to increase basic language skills.


Teachers will share data with parents during Parent teacher conferences.
Data will be discussed quarterly in School Community Council.
Data will be discussed in Building Leadership Team (BLT) monthly.
Data will be discussed in Instructional Professional Learning Communities (IPLCs) weekly.

School Climate Goals

In the Fall Student Risk Screening Scale (SRSS-IE) 2021, 83% of students were in the Low Risk range for Externalizing behaviors. In the Winter Student Risk Screening Scale (SRSS-IE) 77% of students were in the Low Risk range for Externalizing behaviors. By the end of March of the 2020-2021 school year there were 21 office discipline referrals. By the end of March of the 2021-2022 school year there have been 26 office discipline referrals. Student externalizing behavior is increasing. We feel this is due to lack of consistency of being in a full time classroom due to covid restrictions, school closures, and online school.

A strategy for improvement is to purchase calming kits filled with calming tools and training teachers how to use the calming tools in their classrooms.


By Spring of 2023, 80% of students (K-5) will be in the Low Risk range of externalizing behaviors as measured by the Student Risk Screening Scale (SRSS-IE).
