School Innovation and Improvement Plan At-a-Glance

  • 2020-2021

  • Thomas Edison High School

  • Region 3

  • Pamela Brumfield, Principal 

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

For the three school years ending 2023, Edison High School will successfully reduce the percentage of students identified as Tier 2 or 3 based on a final grade of F in a core academic course or a final grade of D in English or Math by 10% annually, or 27% at the end of the 2022-2023 school year.

Strategy 1

  • Through MTSS, CTs will identify and tier students based on achievement and need, and will develop tiered intervention strategies to raise student achievement - across all tiers.

Strategy 2

  • Identify students struggling to connect to distance learning and work to directly support and engage them.

Strategy 3

  • Identify and provide support to students struggling socially-emotionally, particularly during distance learning.

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Continue sustained multi-tiered interventions to decrease rates of chronic absenteeism from 2019-2020 numbers. for both in-person and distance learning, respectively, reducing chronic absenteeism by 10% per annum.

Strategy 1

  • The Dean of Students oversees and monitors students who are at risk of having high levels of absenteeism.  This individual will intervene, using a variety of methods within multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) approaches. While in distance learning, MTSS interventions will be supported by sustained weekly outreach with absent students and families. The Dean of Students will actively engage relevant stakeholders (such as parents, counselors, administrators, and teachers) in creating individualized action plans as necessary as part of tiered interventions.

    If and when school returns to in-person learning, MTSS interventions will continue and be supported by targeted disciplinary approaches, should they be permitted.

Strategy 2

  • Weekly sustained individual outreach to students and families for all students marked absent for that week, focusing on developing connections, providing individual support, building community.

Strategy 3

  • Integrate teacher outreach through the MTSS process as a central component of attendance outreach to building relationships and support students that miss class each week.

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome 

By the end of the third year, 100% of students pursuing a standard or advanced diploma, who do not have unique circumstances precluding their participation (scheduling conflicts, alternative diploma goals, etc.) will complete an IB course before graduating.

Strategy 1

  • Students will select Honors and IB courses that relate to their interests and fit their learning needs.

Strategy 2

  • Students will receive academic and social-emotional support to encourage them to access advanced academic courses.
