One Plan is a comprehensive school improvement initiative that uses a series of evidence-based strategies and action steps to meet school needs and improve outcomes for all students.
Through a comprehensive needs assessment and planning process, TRECA Digital Academy identified school needs and planned a series of evidence-based strategies and action steps to improve outcomes for all students.
The following goals and strategies will be in effect through the 2024-2025 school year.
|Graduation||Early Warning System (EWS)||
A system based on student data to identify students who exhibit behavior or academic performance that puts them at risk of dropping out of school. Early
warning systems help schools pinpoint student achievement patterns and school climate issues that may contribute to students dropping out of school (U.S. Department of Education, 2016).
|Curriculum||Understanding by Design (UbD)||Understanding by Design by Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe offers a framework for designing courses and content units called “Backward Design.” The backward design framework suggests that instructors should consider overarching learning goals and how students will be assessed prior to consideration of how to teach the content (Bowen, 2017).|
|Safe and Healthy School||Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Social Emotional Learning (SEL)||
PBIS is a schoolwide behavioral framework that embeds evidence-based practices and data-driven decision-making to improve school climate and culture, achieve improved academic and behavior outcomes, and increase learning for all students. PBIS encompasses a wide range of systemic and individualized positive strategies to teach schoolwide behavior expectations, reinforce desired behaviors, and diminish reocurrences of challenging behaviors (Ohio Department of Education).
SEL is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions (CASEL, 2017). The skills associated with social-emotional learning provide the foundation for effective communication, problem-solving, critical thinking, resiliency, perseverance, and teamwork (Ohio Department of Education).
