Outcome goals for this academic school year

School Innovation and Improvement Plan At-a-Glance

  • 2018-2019

  • Thomas Edison High School

  • Region 3

  • Pamela Brumfield, Principal 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Over the three-year period, from 2017-2020, each collaborative learning team at Edison High School will reduce the achievement gap between general education students and students with disabilities (SWD) by 10% each year (ex: from 40% to 36%). 

Strategy 1

  • Edison staff will continue with a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) model and provide consistent and targeted support to identified students with the largest gaps in student achievement.

Strategy 2

  • Edison staff will focus on building relationships and academic support as strategic drivers to build a culture of collective responsibility for all students.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

The percentage of ELL students and students with disabilities who fail to graduate within 4 years will reduce by 10%.

Strategy 1

  • All students with disabilities and ELL students will have an understanding of their graduation options to include the Advanced, Standard and Standard Diploma with Accommodations.

Strategy 1

  • A team consisting of the counselor, administrator, parent liaison, SOSA, and social worker will meet regularly to discuss and provide supports to students in danger of not graduating.  The team will monitor student grades and help students to avail themselves of remediation and retake opportunities in order to pass courses. 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome 

Over the three-year period, 2017-2020, Edison High School will succeed in getting 100% participation and completion among sophomores of the IB Middle Years Personal Project.  For the 2018-2019 school year, student participation and completion rates will continue to rise in support of our three-year goal, with 60% of sophomores completing the project.

Strategy 1

  • 10th Grade Advisory teachers, along with the MYP Coordinator, will explicitly teach lessons on the approaches to learning (ATL) skills necessary to complete the personal project. Students will have advisory time and Eagle time to work on their projects.

Strategy 2

  • The Personal Project Google Classroom will merge with the SGA-run Google Classroom to ensure a higher percentage of students are enrolled and getting necessary information.

Strategy 3

  • Tiered interventions for targeted students will continue to be used to increase participation and successful completion of the Personal Project.
