TSSP Goals (Same as before)
Growth in reading is staying quite consistent as years before, about 4% from the beginning of the year until now.
Read 180 classes, and Math 180 classes are still working. More kids in Math 180. 17% growth already.
Struggling with the early warning systems, there is still 12% risk. A big part of this due to the attendance, and kids getting sick. When a student is sick, they are encouraged to stay home. Teachers are doing great working within the restraints we have.
The suspensions are up since summer, the beginning of the year there was a lot more fights. Tick Tok isn’t a reason for fighting. The suspensions have gone down and kids are doing better. The data takes into consideration the in school suspension.
Mountaineer Time: Social worker and Psychologist have put together some videos for the students to watch and learn. Freedom given to the teachers to use these videos by their discretion. The videos are getting approved by the district, and SCC. A link will be sent out. The Empathy slides were shared with the team. There are videos, activities, and class plans available for review. Topics include: Empathy, Friendship, Teasing, Integrity, Disagreeing Respectfully, Respect, Gossip, Diversity & Acceptance, The Real You. Suggested that the links or information is shared with families.
A small amendment to the land trust needs to be amended because it is no longer allowed. Second Step lessons have been review and it is changed to update the action. Original goal is the same. Proposed plan is updated with approved digital citizenship plans. Debbie made the motion to approve the updated land trust amendment for the second step, and Marie seconded it. Everyone was in favor. The signature needs to be added, before the 27th.
