School Plan 2022-2023 - South Sevier MD

Goal #1 


Assure learning and academic achievement to show a minimum of 5% increase in the number of students achieving proficiency on end of year testing from Spring 2022 to Spring 2023.

Academic Areas 




Social Studies 


1. RISE benchmark, interim, and summative assessments 

2. Number of students with passing grades/demonstration of mastery of essential skills at the end of each grading period 

Action Plan Steps 

1. Maintain a 5 hour per day paraprofessional to assist students in tested subject areas showing the greatest level of need (based on end of year test scores)

2. Maintain a 5.5 hour per day paraprofessional to assist students in tested subject areas showing the greatest level of need (based on end of year test scores)

3. Maintain current certified staffing by covering 2.4% of an FTE of our least expensive teacher to aid in reduction of class sizes in all content areas

4. Cover costs for at least one academic field trip per grade level (teachers submit proposal explaining purpose of trip and connection to curriculum standards/benefit to student learning due to participation, maximum $1,000 per grade level)

5. Purchase student licenses for the Lanschool device management tool to promote on-task academic behaviors and appropriate use of one-to-one devices

6. Purchase student licenses for the Read Theory reading/comprehension online program to provide students with individualized practice and progress monitoring to strengthen their reading skills

7. Provide teacher development in the areas of grading, assessment, and other best practices of instruction

8. Purchase materials/Provide experiences that aid the school PBIS social-emotional health initiatives and education

*Continual efforts to support student/teacher social-emotional health result in improved student behavior, attitudes, effort, and overall well-being.  When these needs are addressed, the ability to learn and retain is more achievable.

9. Replace/Repair current technology devices and materials as needed for student use in the classroom

Digital Citizenship/Safety Principles Component

Does this academic goal include a component to implement digital citizenship or safety principles?

Yes    No


The school will host its annual White Ribbon Week where there is intense instruction, activities, and at-home challenges to educate students and families on the importance of internet safety and smarts. Curriculum will be purchased and implemented to support the efforts of quality and applicable learning experiences.

Estimated Carry-over (as needed if the carry-over is >10%)

Notice has been given by the district that in the 2023-2024 school year, 1 full FTE (or one full-time teacher) will have to be cut.  An intentional amount greater than 10% of the total budget is being saved for roll-over as part of a 2-year plan to have enough funding in place to maintain staffing regardless of necessary cuts.

Funding Changes

If expenditures in a plan are provided through a different funding source, making funds available to implement the goals in this plan, how will the funds be used differently to implement this plan?

If extra funds are available or added, efforts to improve our reading interventions programming would be of top priority.  Curriculum, programs, and other materials would be deeply researched to identify the most proven and effective options.  Identifying educational opportunities for students in the world of STEM would be the next priority. Although a small portion of the budget is already being dedicated to that or social emotional well-being, further materials and experiences for students in regards to this element of their education would be considered.



The proposed budget will be posted on the school website, shared as part of the annual back to school information in August 2022, and available in the main office in the format of a paper flyer upon request.
