Teacher and Student Success Plan
2022 - 2023


Overarching Goal

On average, fifty-nine percent of the Union Middle students are currently able to demonstrate mastery of state core standards on our Union common formative assessments.  THREE YEAR GOAL:   75% of students will maintain proficiency on Union's common assessments in all subject areas by May, 2025.  (Scoring 70% or above on a common assessment will be considered proficient.)  Within this three year period, we would like to achieve the following benchmarks:

  • 65% of students will maintain proficiency on Union's common assessments in all subject areas by May, 2023.
  • 70% of students will maintain proficiency on Union's common assessments in all subject areas by May, 2024.
  • 75% of students will maintain proficiency on Union's common assessments in all subject areas by May, 2025.

    This goal will be achieved through: the development of high quality common comprehensive/unit assessments, purposeful collaboration in Instructional Professional Learning Communities (IPLCs), appropriate rigor (ready for end-of-level state assessments), and frequency (at least one per quarter) - including data for English Language Learners and students on Individual Education Plans or 504 Plans - to support student achievement.  

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 the 2022 February and March SCC Meetings, the School Community Council members discussed and approved the TSSP goals for the 2022-23 school year.

1. To strengthen our Tier One instruction, we will give teachers time to collaborate, review achievement data, and plan. We will pay for substitutes for these collaboration days. We have allocated $15,000 from TSSA for this action step.
2. To provide additional academic support, we have allocated $29,754 from Land Trust to pay for after school tutoring in Math, Science, Social Studies and English Language Arts.
3. We will hire aides 2 instructional aides to run Check In, Check Out, and to help support and track students' academics. We've allocated $22,000 from Land Trust for this action step.
4. We will pay for an English Language Arts teacher to support literacy and to help students develop writing skills. We've allocated $80,000 from TSSA for this action step.
5. We will pay .75 of 1 FTE for an English Language Arts teacher to support literacy and to help students develop writing skills. We have allocated $60,000 out of Land Trust for this action step.


Instructional Professional Learning Communities (IPLCs) will measure the percent of students proficient on Union Common Summative Assessments (based on state standards) for each unit across all content areas. We will also track progress on the Reading Inventory (RI), the Math Inventory (MI), RISE data, and WIDA scores (ELL Students).


We will provide the accommodations and/or the specially designed instruction required on IEPs or on 504 Plans. In addition, teachers will support Tier 1 instruction with embedded high quality instructional scaffolds, such as: rubrics, graphic organizers, explicit vocabulary instruction, small group instruction, providing visuals and modeling. Student progress will be tracked through progress on assessments in core classes, Math Inventory (MI), Reading Inventory (RI), and Rise assessments.


Students will receive targeted language instruction in the ELD classrooms. In addition, teachers will support Tier 1 instruction with embedded high quality instructional scaffolds, such as: rubrics, graphic organizers, explicit vocabulary instruction, small group instruction, providing visuals and modeling. Student language proficiency will be tracked through WIDA, Read180 and System44, and progress monitoring in ELL classes. This implementation will help ELL's make gains on the World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) Tests, Reading Inventory, and state end of level testing.


IPLC teams will report progress to achievement coaches and administrators on their data team planning days. Student proficiency will be posted on the wall in the coaches' office and in the hallway. Throughout the year, we will share our progress with the School Community Council. School Community Council notes will be shared with all parents.

School Climate Goals

On our most recent School Connectedness Survey, we asked the students: How often does a feeling of anxiety prevent you from participating in the learning in class?
27% of students responded daily
24% of students responded once a week
20% of students responded once a month
29% of students responded never
We want to foster a feeling of family and connectedness that will provide an emotionally safe environment for our students to learn.


80% of students will report that they do not have feelings of anxiety that prevent them from participating in the learning in class more than once a week.

We will pay for .5 FTE for a third school counselor. Our counselors work with individual students and in groups to support students’ social and emotional well-being. For the 2022-23 school year, our counselors are going to focus on teaching stress management strategies and running groups for students with feelings of anxiety. We will allocate $40,000 out of TSSP for this action step.


The PBIS team will conduct a yearly targeted school climate survey to measure progress by May, 2023.


Throughout the year, we will share our progress with the staff and the School Community Council. School Community Council notes will be shared with all parents.
