Schools may choose to describe up to two additional pieces of information about how their school is supporting students. These self-reported indicators are not factored into school accountability calculations but provide the opportunity for schools to highlight successful programs or practices in addition to the indicators included in school accountability.
Multi-Tiered Support System
It is important to focus on academics as well as the social emotional needs of our students. Some of the things that we have in place to help maintain positive relationships include: Full Time Counselor on Staff Licensed Clinical Social Worker on Staff Physical Education and Wellness Classes Prevention Dimension Safe UT App Socratic Seminars in Middle School Small Groups to address academic and Social Emotional needs of students MESA (Math Engineering Science Achievement) Girls on the Run Second Steps After School Program Dolphin Store for Incentives Principal's 200 Club Principal Signs Report Cards
EQUITABLE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
Focus on needs of English Language Learners
Our School has a full time English Language Development (ELD) teacher. This provides us an opportunity to schedule classes for each grade level and best meet the needs of English Language Learners (ELL) at various proficiency levels. Having a full time ELD teacher also provides teachers opportunities to collaborate with her and our Literacy Coach. Together, they develop and implement strategies that best meet the needs of our students. Additionally we have paraprofessionals who provide Early Reading Intervention (ERI) with kindergarten students. These are among the things that impact student academic growth as we continue to move towards proficiency levels for each student at our school.
