Outcome goals for this academic year.

School Innovation and Improvement Plan At-a-Glance

  • 2021-2022
  • Liberty Middle School
  • Region 4 
  • Adam Erbrecht, Principal

End of Year SMARTR Outcome 

By June 2022, 100% of students assessed will demonstrate growth or maintain the highest level of skill within the Creative and Critical Thinker skill” as measured by POG student self-assessments, with at least one piece of evidence of skill use, and the teacher scoring guide.

 Strategy 1

  •  Access to Rigor within Instruction:  Intentionally focusing on increasing the number and frequency of AAP strategies that  support students in developing Creative and Critical Thinking skills, especially using evidence to support conclusions.

Strategy 2

  • Assessment of POG Development: Utilizing student self-reflection, evidence collection, and conferencing

 

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

By the end of the 2021-22 school year, Liberty Middle School will have improved our ability to clarify behavior expectations and support students in meeting those expectations by:

1. Reduce the amount of referrals per Black and Special Education students to .75. Doing so would have reduced the total amount of referrals to about 298, or .27 referrals per student.

2. We will also measure our ability to effectively respond to behavior infractions and supporting students in meeting our expectations by reducing the percent of the black population who received four or more referrals from 11% to 5% and the percent of the Special Education population who received 4 or more referrals from 13% to 5%.

 

Strategy 1

  • Tier 1: Become a Restorative School by implementing year-one of a two-year phase-in of Restorative Practices, including community building circles and Restorative Justice conversations following student behavior incidents.

Strategy 2

  • Tier 1: Emphasize Liberty’s “discipline with dignity” prerogative by providing professional learning for staff members that clarifies disciplinary steps and a toolbox of classroom management strategies including support for Special Education.

Strategy 3

  • Tier 2: Utilize Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) meetings to provide professional development about MTSS, office referral protocols, and classroom management.

Strategy 4

  • Tier 3: To reduce referral recidivism, the school will utilize ESSER to provide small groups and individuals with time bound, specific, and data-monitored behavioral interventions.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

By June of 2022, 80% of family respondents will indicate overall agreement with statements regarding the two way communication between families and educators as well as statements regarding the amount of information from our school to parents about what they can do at home to support his or her learning on a school created family engagement survey.

Strategy 1

  •  Improve family connections by offering information and educational opportunities to empower families as advocates
