About Us

Posted in General Info

School Front-3Welcome to Midvalley Elementary School!  
   Midvalley is a true community school. Throughout its 60+ years, grandparents, parents and children have been loyal to Midvalley and its mission to educate the whole child. Our caring faculty has worked hard to implement the Utah core in Math and Language Arts.  Their hard work has paid off in a significant rise in test scores and student achievement. 
   The Midvalley Building Leadership Team (BLT) helps guide decisions and develops school policy.  We have an excellent, active PTA and wonderful parents all around that share their time and talents volunteering in our classrooms.  We also have a School Community Council that helps guide decisions that serve our students.  I hope you can find the time to join and support the causes of our great volunteers. 
The staff at Midvalley is committed to helping each child feel successful and loved school. 
    This year, you will notice the construction of our new school. We hope that you enjoy watching the progress as much as we do. We encourage you to get involved and look forward to working with you to help your child have a great experience at Midvalley.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the office. Mrs. Baker, our principal, would be glad to speak with you by phone or in person.

Goal #1

Goal 

By 2021-22 school year, 80% of all students reach end of year benchmark in mathematics and ELA as measured by DIBELS.

Academic Areas 

  • Mathematics
  • Reading

Measurements 

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

63% of students are NOT meeting proficiency in math as measured by Sage. 61% are NOT meeting proficiency in math as measured by DIBELS. ELL mastery percentages show 78% (Sage) and 69% (DIBELS) are NOT meeting proficiency. Midvalley teachers have identified the need for strong Tier I instruction and Skill Based Instruction (small group Tier II) to support all students who are not meeting benchmark in ELA and math. Teachers will address these concerns by implementing with fidelity: structured classroom discussion, progress monitoring using the data to make instructional decisions, intensified instructional routines, and skill based instruction (Tier I and II). By May 2020, 80% of all students will show grade level proficiency as measured by DIBELS MATH (components as per grade level).  Progress will be monitored by staff public practice (coaching cycles, lesson study, peer coaching, walk throughs, IPLC's) with  Tier I and 2 instruction,  and progress monitoring students.

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

Our spring ELA Pathways of Progress growth was 55%. This was an increase from 52% from the 2017-18 school year, an increase from 48% from the 2016-17 school year. We have recognized from the District, that the District Pathways of Progress goal has been set for 60%. We will be working with our SCC to reset our Pathways goal to 60% to align our school goal with the District goal.

Action Plan Steps 

This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.

Provide continued professional development for faculty focusing on structured classroom discussion, skill based instruction, supporting advanced learners using project based learning, MTSS behavior supports, intensified reading routines.

Inventory and order math and science materials that will strengthen teaching the Math and Reading Core, including content vocabulary development (science). (5,000)

Monitor student progress using school, District, and State Assessments during professional learning community weekly meetings at grade level and monthly Building Leadership Team meetings at school level.

Strengthen home, community and school connections for supporting students at home. If offered, we are applying this spring for a State Lexia grant for students who need additional practice at home.

Monitor teacher implementation using walk-through assessments designed specifically for the instructional strategies listed above. Walk-throughs will be conducted after teachers receive coaching cycles by our achievement coach.

Five Intervention Assistants will support students in skill based instruction. (39,000)

Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

All of our action steps were accomplished. We were able to receive the Lexia grant and also to have the Lexia grant renewed for this year, as well. All monitoring of programs was completed and showed implementation in the classrooms for the strategies that were adopted and implemented.

Expenditures

CategoryDescriptionEstimated CostActual CostActual Use
 Total:$44,000$43,218 
Salaries and Employee Benefits (100 and 200)

Five Intervention Assistants will support students in skill based instruction. Teachers will be the primary instructor during small group, skill based instruction. Intervention Assistants will work with all students, including struggling students and advanced learners to help ensure at least one year's academic growth. Skill based instruction is a fundamental student achievement strategy being implemented by the teaching faculty. Also, substitutes for Professional Development for teachers.

$39,000 $32,901

As described. However, one position was not filled the full year, as we were not able to find personnel.

General Supplies (610)

Math and science hands-on materials to establish a teacher checkout closet.

$5,000 $10,317

We had additional funds as the paraprofessionals did not use all of the hours.


Funding Changes (and Unplanned Expenditures) 

The school plan describes how additional funds exceeding the estimated distribution would be spent. This is the description.

If additional funds become available after plan approval, the SCC and staff will use the funds to support additional MTSS interventionist time and/or purchase math supplies with supportive professional development for the teachers.

Description of how any additional funds exceeding the estimated distribution were actually spent.

Additional funds were used for supplies and materials to support content integration for social studies and science.

Publicity 

The following items are the proposed methods of how the Plan would be publicized to the community:

  • Letters to policy makers and/or administrators of trust lands and trust funds.
  • School newsletter
  • School website
  • School marquee
  • Other: Please explain.
