  • E.M. Holt TSI Designation Letter

     

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

        I hope the school year has started successfully for all of you.  E.M. Holt Elementary has been designated as a Targeted Support & Improvement for Additional Targeted Support (TSI-AT) school by the North Carolina State Board of Education.  As stated in ESSA Section 1111(d)(2), North Carolina had to identify schools for targeted support and improvement. TSI-AT schools in North Carolina are those that have a subgroup that is under-performing. Our goal is to improve educational outcomes for all students, close achievement gaps, increase equity, and improve the quality of instruction.  As a TSI-AT school, E.M. Holt Elementary has developed a comprehensive plan that specifically addresses how the school will improve student achievement. 

    We have set the following goals for E.M. Holt Elementary this year:

    • By June 2022 we will continue to increase third through fifth grade level reading proficiency from 49.6% to 70% as measured by the North Carolina EOG by strengthening core ELA instruction. 
    • By June 2022 we will continue to increase third through fifth grade level math proficiency from 42.2% to 70% as measured by the North Carolina EOG by strengthening core core math instruction.
    • Increase student and teacher relationships to 80% or more by refining core behavior expectations/social emotional learning experiences  across the school as measured by the Panorama Survey for student sense of belonging.

    You can read more about the strategies we are implemeting in the linked TSI letters.

    Parent engagement is at the heart of our school improvement efforts. Here are some ways we can work together:

    • Make sure that both you and your student are aware of academic expectations set for your student this school year.  A list of learning objectives in student-friendly language is available from your student’s teacher(s). 
    •  Call the school office if you have questions or concerns about your student or to set up an appointment to meet with a school staff member who will be working with your student. 
    • Make sure that your student is prepared and attends school each day.
    • Monitor your student’s homework.
    • Monitor the progress your student is making and attend meetings with your student’s teacher(s).
    • Keep track of our website and social media sites https://www.abss.k12.nc.us/domain/16
    • Volunteer.
    • Join the EM. Holt Parent Teacher Organization.

    We’re excited about this school year and are working to make it a success for your student.
