Springfield Central High School began teaming ninth grade students for the 2006-2007 academic year. Teams of teachers meet several times a week, during the school day, to discuss how they can help their common group of students achieve academically. The following principles and practices help guide teaming at SCHS:
- Increased parent involvement means increased student achievement. Parents/guardians will be included in the education process whenever possible.
- The whole student will be considered, including social, emotional, and behavioral factors, and the team will attempt to pool resources and develop community partners.
- An after-school extra help session with all the teachers on the team in one room will be established to enable students to solve more than one problem per session.
- Data will be recorded on absences, discipline, grades, parent contacts, dropouts and any team actions, and their results, outside of regular teacher duties.
- The primary guiding principle will be increased student achievement. If it is good for students, without lowering standards, we will try it.
SCHS Teaming covers almost all grade nine students. The table below identifies the current teams for 2010-2011. Note: The Team Facilitator may be contacted directly for progress monitoring or to arrange conferences, via email (see table below) or phone at 787-7085. Bold denotes Team Facilitator.
