Indian Hills Middle School

Teacher and Student Success Plan 2020-2021

Indian Hills Middle School is committed to creating a safe and positive school environment that focuses on strengthening students’ foundational academic skills in content literacy, reading strategies, critical thinking, and executive functioning skills.

General to all Academic Goals:

Measurement: Student growth and proficiency on the end of year state test with district-level assessments used to measure progress throughout the year.

Students with disabilities: Students will be targeted and discussed as a subgroup to ensure consistent support and monitoring. Content literacy supports and reading strategies will be used to support our students with disabilities.

ELL Students: Students will be targeted and discussed as a subgroup to ensure consistent support and monitoring.  Content literacy supports and reading strategies will be used to support our ELL students.

Communicating Progress with Stakeholders: Student proficiency will be posted on the Indian Hills, Canyons School District, and state websites

Literacy

Analysis Summary: The 2018-19 RISE data indicate that 62.6% of students reached proficiency in ELA with a growth score of 51.3.  However, this is the first and only year for this testing company,  As a result, we want to ensure the data is reliable.  Therefore, our goal is reflective of this reality.

Goal: To increase the number of students achieving proficiency or higher school-wide in ELA to 65% or greater, with a minimum gain of 3% in each grade level on the end of year state tests and student growth score of at least 55 points.

Action Plan Summary: We will provide professional development support of teachers to refine and master the CSD behavioral priorities.  Teacher data teams will work with the academic coach to focus on underachieving groups by continually improving the teachers’ use of structured classroom discussion and scaffolding. Teacher animal teams will work with the academic coach to identify at-risk students and develop interventions.  We will include a weekly requirement on the IPLC form indicating their use of content literacy practices.  We will provide weekly after-school support.  We will provide support with instructional support aides through our SOS center.  We will provide ongoing support and guidance from our BLT and WEB leaders through ongoing professional development.  We will provide rewards for those improving on their Reading Inventory scores twice during the year.  We will provide students with planners and organizational binders and teach them how to use them.  Lastly, we will engage in a book study on reshaping student discipline to align with our Restorative Practice focus.

School Climate

Analysis Summary: According to the CTESS Secondary Student Survey given in fall 2019, an average response of the students reporting that they feel recognized for positive behavior was 3.29.  In the Parent Stakeholder Survey, the average score of parents reporting they feel their child is supported socially and emotionally is 3.17.  We believe the problem is a result of teacher to student relationships and interactions and a lack of communication with the community.

Goal: To increase the average score of students responding they have been recognized for following expectations on the student stakeholder survey from 3.29 to 3.35 and the average score of parents responding they feel their child is supported socially and emotionally from 3.17 to 3.25 on the parent stakeholder survey.

Action Plan Summary: We will continue to use Warrior Cards as a school-wide reward system.  Students may still use these cards for prizes during drawings or at the Warrior Store.  Teams will meet three times each year to discuss EWS data.  Grade level teams will continue to implement quarterly rewards.  We will implement school-wide elements of circles, WEB and restorative practice each Friday during Warrior Time.  Teachers will also participate in a book study of Hacking School Discipline to aid in classroom management and building relationships.

Measurement:

Communication: The goal will be communicated with students during the opening class meetings and with parents through an introductory email regarding weekly Warrior Time.  Emails will be sent monthly to parents communicating the monthly theme.  It will also be communicated through the school’s webpage.
