Teacher and Student Success Plan
2022 - 2023


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 as outlined in Portrait of a Graduate.

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 Schools Community Council (SCC) members spent months discussing and adjusting 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

57% of students are meeting expected growth on the Reading Inventory (RI). Multi-Lingual Learners (ML) and students with special education services have the lowest percentage of students making expected growth. Strategies for improvement are implementing a school-wide focus on comprehension, increasing structured classroom discussion based on standards, increasing active engagement, reading intervention classes, prioritizing small-group instruction, and professional development for teachers to implement these strategies systemically.


75% of students will meet or exceed expected growth rates on the Reading Inventory (RI) in the 2022-2023 school year.

School Climate Goals

In the post-survey from 2021, 84.4% of the students agreed that they know an adult at school who they can talk with and get help, an increase of 2.6% from the pre-survey. Students also responded in the post-survey that 93.1% of them had friends at Midvale Middle School, an increase of 3.3% from the pre-survey. We will continue to focus on providing support for all students and ensuring that students feel listened to and valued.


By May of 2023, 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 homeroom on Portrait of a Graduate.

School Climate Goals

On average, 93% of our students are currently being recognized monthly through our school-wide positive behavior intervention system. To increase the number of students who are being recognized we will focus on professional development on positive feedback and building positive student-to-teacher relationships.


On a monthly basis, at least 95% of students will be recognized through our school-wide positive behavior intervention system.
