Teacher and Student Success Plan
2022 - 2023


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:
 

We reviewed school goals, student academic data, teacher implementation data and our school professional learning plan in two School Community Council Meetings. Members of the SCC were pleased with academic growth that was made when we presented our Middle of the Year data, and the instructional focus we have identified in both reading and math. Many grade levels were very close to reaching their end of the year goals, and a couple surpassed them as well.  We are working to align our literacy growth goals to match the Uniform Growth Goal of 60% made by the state.  We believe that students should be able to grow this much in one year with high quality teaching, and implementation of the curriculum.  We reviewed our office referrals with a focus on aggression, and this will be our school climate goal for next year.

Academic Goals

40% of Midvale students are not making typical or above typical growth on Acadience Pathways of Progress in their grade level specific measurements reading. This pattern is most common in grades K, 2nd and 3rd grades with 50% of students not making typical or above progress. It is most prevalent in our multilingual students and students with disabilities populations. We believe the challenge is a result of inconsistent implementation of maximizing instructional time, fidelity to the standards, curriculum and instructional blocks of time in the master schedule. Another factor contributing to lack of growth is consistence attendance, and the mobility of a high percentage of students who attend Midvale Elementary.


Goal #1 - LITERACY By May 2023, Midvale Elementary students will have demonstrated the skills necessary to meet each targeted, grade specific Literacy goal identified below:

Kindergarten: By the end of May 2023, 65% of Midvale’s Kindergarten students will make typical or above typical growth in NWF-CLS (nonsense word fluency-correct letter sounds) according to Acadience Pathways of Progress.

First: By May of 2023, 75% of Midvale’s First Graders will make typical or above typical growth in NWF-WWR (whole words read) according to Acadience Pathways of Progress.

Second: By May of 2023, 65% of Midvale’s Second Graders will make typical or above typical growth in Accuracy in oral reading fluency (ORF) according to Acadience Pathways of Progress.

Third: By May of 2023, 65% of Midvale’s Third Graders will make typical or above typical growth on their accuracy and 60% of Midvale’s Third Graders will make typical or above typical growth on their ORF (Oral Reading Fluency) according to Acadience Reading Pathways of Progress.

Fourth: By the end of May 2023, 80% of Midvale’s Fourth-Graders will make typical or above typical growth in Reading Composite Score according to Acadience Pathways of Progress. 60% of students will also reach At or Above Benchmark in ORF according to the End of Year report.

Fifth: By the end of May 2023, 80% of Midvale’s Fifth Graders will make typical or above typical growth in ORF (oral reading fluency) and Accuracy according to Acadience Pathways of Progress. 70% of students will also reach At or Above Benchmark in ORF and accuracy according to the End of Year report.

Special Education: By the end of May 2023 Midvale’s Students with Disabilities will grow 30% toward benchmark goal as measured by phoneme segmentation (PSF) in Kindergarten, nonsense word fluency correct letter sounds (NWF CLS) in first grade, and accuracy in oral reading fluency (ORF) in grades 2nd -5th.

7. Professional development will be planned in collaboration with our Instructional Supports, Student Advocacy, Responsive Services, and Special Education Departments.
8. Professional development will be presented throughout the year, and followed up with collaborative team planning, implementation of those plans, and finally; to reflect on the impact that their professional learning has on student achievement. Continued focus on teacher clarity, and use the Teacher Clarity Playbook throughout the year. ($1300)
9. Substitutes for BLT members to analyze data, collaborate and intentionally plan after professional development/and or after benchmark testing. ($3,000)
10. Coaching cycles, observations, and walkthroughs will be implemented to refine teaching skills and advance continuous improvement amongst our teachers.
11. Maintain our current Brain Booster Arts Technician ($15,000)
12. Hire two additional interventionists. (30,000)







All literacy goals to quantify student progress will be measured using Acadience Pathways of Progress and End of Year Benchmark reports. Baseline Pathways of Progress data is available after the Winter (2022) testing.
Baseline Benchmark data will be available in the Fall, and Winter (2022) and Spring (2023).


IEP goals will be shared/communicated with general education teachers in the fall. Special Education teachers will meet with Grade Level Teams monthly to analyze shared student data, and identify additional supports and scaffolding as necessary.


We offer our Spanish Dual Language Immersion program exclusively to our neighborhood students and continue to expand it each year. We have an ASL facilitator who works with our students on individualized language development. We encourage all of our teachers to become ESL endorsed to support progress and proficiency in our population. To increase proficiency in the WIDA standards, we embed ELL supports in our professional development for teachers such as structured classroom discussion, close reading and creating sentence frames for increased language development.
We are also looking forward to learning more and implementing the Wonders curriculum which has robust scaffolds for language learners and newcomers.


Progress will be shown through Acadience Pathways to Progress and presented at meetings held with BLT, Faculty, SCC after the Fall, Winter and Spring Benchmarks. Progress will also be shared via newsletters to community and during family conferences in September and February.

Academic Goals

In 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th grades, 40% of Midvale students are not making typical or above typical growth on Acadience Pathways of Progress in their grade level specific measurements in math. It is most prevalent in our multilingual students and students with disabilities populations. We believe the challenge is a result of the current lack of maximizing instructional time, lack of students using concrete, representational and abstract thinking, an inconsistent implementation of; rigor, fidelity to the standards, curriculum and instructional blocks of time in the master schedule. Another factor contributing to lack of growth is consistence attendance. and the mobility of a high percentage of students who attend Midvale Elementary.


Goal #2 - MATH By May 2023, Midvale Elementary students will have demonstrated the skills necessary to meet each targeted, grade specific Math goal identified below:

School Climate Goals

Currently at Midvale Elementary, aggression incidents are the highest number of offenses that are reported. 244 incidents (as of 4.13.2022) have been documented this school year. We believe that this is due to the inability for many of our students to self regulate their emotions, and use appropriate social skills "in the moment". These events are most likely to occur during unstructured times during the day between the hours of 10:55 and 1:00 when lunch and recess starts.


Midvale will reduce the number of aggression office referrals by 10% in each term during the 2022-2023 school year. This will reduce the amount of time students are out of class and not engaged in learning.


No Yes


To reduce student behavior that leads to Office Discipline Referrals involving aggression and to increase student time spent learning in classrooms, Midvale Elementary will hire one additional MTSS assistant (33,000) for a total of three, focus on increasing our 4:1 positive to corrective feedback ratio in classrooms during the school day, increase opportunities for students to build community beyond their own classroom, provide regular recognition for students following our school rules (PBIS Rewards incentives (1,400) CEO traits assemblies), provide a stipend for teachers to reach out to families to build relationships regarding absences (12,000) and provide the opportunity for students identified as high risk for externalizing/internalizing behaviors to receive services from our SEL team and behavior interventionists.
We will do this by focusing on:
1. Introduction of a “Movement Room/Wellness Room” Purchase movement and exercise equipment such as a mini trampoline with handle, tactile play mats, sensory paths, fidgets, sensory putty, and other movement or calming items as needed. (5,000)
2. Social emotional learning and supports that will be guided by SRSSIE data
3. Increasing our positive to corrective feedback ratio as determined by IPOP data
4. Increasing opportunities for student community building which include:
-using the peace path for restorative conversations
- continue morning meeting implementation
-Buddy Day each month for cross grade level activity- Purchase art supplies, extra holiday themed craft items for activities, and games.(5,000)


Use Discipline Dashboard to monitor aggression ODR's.


Monthly IPLC's, BLT meetings, and with our SCC.
