a. Goals & Action Plan (TSSA & LAND Trust)
TSSP – click on link to get plan
- 75% of students will meet or exceed expected growth on the Reading Inventory (RI)
during the current school year.
- 60% of students will meet or exceed expected growth on the Math Inventory (MI) during the current school year.
- On a monthly basis, at least 95% of students will be recognized through our school-wide positive behavior intervention system.
100% of students have been recognized each month
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.
Based on funding we will have some changes with teachers. Some teachers will be
asked to go part time or hourly. We will need to use some of the TSSA and
LandTrust funding to help reduce the number of teachers we will lose.
This will help us keep elective choices and intervention classes for students.
All decisions have been made based on data and student needs.
Our district and school administration have been very supportive. Parents are willing
to help volunteer to help support teachers in the classroom.
Action Item: Approve Teacher Student Success Plan 2023.
