As we head into fall break and complete our first term, I want to point out that Rockwell has shifted gears. We have improved in our Utah Comprehensive Accountability System (UCAS) score going from 359 in 2012 to 514 this past year. We also increased our onsite enrollment from about 375 this time last year to 450. These numbers represent a significant effort on the part of everyone involved in any way, shape, or form at the school. To continue that success and to have more progress, we have to be focused on student success. We have to be big enough to serve and small enough to care.
I want to point out a few things (alphabetical order) that will keep us on track to making more progress:
COLLABORATION TIME: For teachers to be able to get to the core needs of the students. This is most often done as grade-level mentors, but can be done in any combination as long as it is focused on helping our students be more successful.
INTERVENTION: This effort happens as soon as students get a C-. We need that red flag then to help remediate sooner. D and F grades say we are okay with students choosing the path of least resistance. They can choose that, but we choose as a school not to allow failure. We will model success in helping the less motivated student get stuff turned in, finding ways of supporting deeper learning, and figuring out if students have legitimate issues impeding their learning.
MENTORING: Grumbles aside from some students and even some adults, this is doing exactly what we need it to do. We want to establish appropriate, professional relationships that honor our charter that says each student will have an adult mentor on site. This is an evolutionary effort, so the patience extended to it only helps it sink the roots needed to sustain success for the longest term.
MONTHLY CONFERENCING: First Friday of each month, 1:45-3:45, except January or when there is a break; please feel free to address issues via email or set up an appointment anytime you feel you need to meet. This is your school too, parents. We want you here and need your support to help our students be successful.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: Focuses on assisting rookies and veteran teachers where they need it most, not just by following a set course. It is done in somewhat the same way we do mentoring for the students to make sure needs are met and appropriate challenges to facilitate growth are extended.
USING SIS: Teachers use this to enter grades and attendance; parents and students can use it to monitor progress; it keeps everyone connected and that means we don't get stuck in a rut. By using SIS, free from the state, we all have the same information to help develop our culture of excellence.
