End-of-Year SMARTR Outcome

By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, less than 18 students will earn a D or F as a final grade in a core content class.  This will result in a decrease of 33% in the number of students earning a D or F. as their final grade. 

Strategy 1

All eligible 8th grade students will be paired with a staff member who will serve as their mentors and discuss academic, attendance, behavioral, and social/emotional needs on a bi-weekly basis.  The staff members will monitor student progress in an academic fantasy league that they will participate in along with all other students in the program.    

Strategy 2

From October 2017 through May 2018, the students that have the greatest number of Ds and Fs on their current SIS progress report will be assigned to attend a mandatory After-School Academic Learning Lab on Wednesday afternoons. 

Strategy 3

All students will receive an opportunity to return to each of their seven classes, once during a two week period, to meet with their teachers for an intervention period.  


End-of-Year SMARTR Outcome

By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, 100% of the collaborative teams at Twain Middle School will have created and implemented at least TWO International Baccalaureate units with the appropriately matched assessment criterion rubric.  For one of the implemented units, IB rubric scores will be reported to parents and students through the FCPS gradebook reporting system (SIS).

Strategy 1

All students will complete a time management planner for long-term assessments to assist them creating successful products for the IB assessments
