School Innovation and Improvement Plan At-a-Glance

  • 2018-2019

  • Madison High School

  • Region 1

  • Greg Hood, Principal

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

By June 2019, 100% of students will report growth on the JMHS deeper learning rubric.

  • Strategy 1: Create a professional development plan to define a common understanding of deeper learning and to strengthen understanding for all staff of deeper learning.
  • Strategy 2: Redefine and update CLT meetings and agendas to allow reflection on deeper learning strategies and to continue the expansion and implementation of deeper learning practices.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

By June 2019, 100% of staff will develop a better understanding of cultures of thinking and deeper learning in the classroom as measured by the deeper learning rubric.

  • Strategy 1: Each CLT member will be part of a deeper learning topic cohort.
  • Strategy 2: Staff will participate in learning opportunities within the JMHS faculty and outside of Madison HS.

End of Year SMARTR Outcome

By June 2019, at least 95 percent of identified students in the SSP framework will show growth in the targeted areas of grades, attendance, graduation rates, and performance on state assessments. Specifically:

  • Grades - At least 95 percent of students identified for academic intervention will increase their grades by at least one letter grade in identified subject areas.
  • Attendance - At least 95 percent of the students identified for attendance intervention will reduce their full-day absences by 2 or more days compared to the prior year; and for the school as a whole, fewer students in each of these reporting groups will be identified as chronically absent, with the group's chronic absenteeism rate improving by at least 1.5 percentage points from 2017-18.
  • Graduation - At least 95 percent of the students identified for graduation intervention will graduate (by August 2019) or stay in school; and for the school as a whole, at least 5 percent more students in each of these reporting groups will graduate on time compared to 2017-18.
  • State Assessments - At least 95 percent of the students identified for state assessment intervention will pass their assigned SOL reading and math tests this year or will pass an approved substitute test (e.g., reading WorkKeys); and for the school as a whole, assessment performance for each of these reporting groups will improve by at least 4 percentage points in math and by at least 3 percentage points in reading compared to 2017-18.
  • Strategy 1: Responsive Instruction - a multi-tiered system of support. Implement Responsive Instruction Framework to provide a continuum of academic, behavior, and wellness supports across tiers 1, 2, and 3.
  • Strategy 2: Tier 1 - High-Quality Core Instruction (Academics, Behavior, Wellness). Provide differentiated options and pathways to meet the needs of diverse learners in order to reach the Portrait of a Graduate attributes through deeper learning activities. 
  • Strategy 3: Tier 2 and Tier 3 (Academics, Behavior, Wellness) Intervention. Provide a continuum of interventions through designated intervention blocks and courses.
