School Improvement & Innovation Plan At A Glance
Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology | Fairfax County Public Schools | Region 2
Using the student Challenge Success survey results from 2018-2019, we would like to increase by at least 5%, from a baseline of 55.6%, the number of students who report they are fully engaged or purposefully engaged in school, as opposed to saying they are doing school (currently 35.2%) or disengaged (currently 4.9%).
- Focus on high-quality Tier 1 instruction
- Shadow A Student
- Collaborative Colleague Visits
In a classroom setting, students will demonstrate a greater ability to self-advocate with teachers as evidenced by a 10% increase as of June 1, 2020
- Student Advocacy Guidelines
- Staff and various stakeholders, including Student Services faculty and staff in Student Wellness Resources, Academic Counseling and College Counseling, will collaborate with students to develop effective advocacy and positive self-management skills.
In a school setting as of June 1, 2020, 85% of students will be able to identify at least one adult they feel they can go to if they need help with a personal problem.
- All TJHSST staff individually or in teams will select one Challenge Success area of focus (Managing Expectations, Healthy Sleep Habits/Education, addressing Rigor/Workload)
- Use consistent language across stakeholder groups to promote continuity in messaging and engage stakeholders in the process
