TSSP School Climate Goal

School Climate Goal

Analysis Summary

27 % of students are demonstrating internalizing behaviors according to Winter SRSS-IE data .  This pattern is most common in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades.  We believe the problem is a result of students needing more practice and support using social/emotional problem-solving skills and a need for a consistent 4:1 positive to corrective feedback ratio. A strategy for improvement is to have teachers participate in public practice by videoing themselves to self-assess positive to corrective feedback ratios and feedback sequences.  


By May 2022, 100% of Sprucewood teachers will demonstrate 4:1 positive to corrective feedback and follow up 100% of corrective feedback with a feedback sequence to reinforce when a student demonstrates the desired behavior as evidenced by informal and formal IPOP data.

Action Plan Summary

1) school social worker will provide a supplemental/support lesson per class per month

2) provide professional development on feedback and feedback sequences

3) teachers will participate in public practice to improve school climate by videoing themselves teaching a lesson of choice and watching individually and/or with peer or coach to analyze their positive to corrective feedback ratio, and total number of feedback sequences that follow corrective feedback when students demonstrate the desired behavior
