Ranson IB Middle School: - Charlotte-Mecklenburg , NC
Ranson IB Middle School is a middle school serving over 1,000 students in grades 6-8 in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District.
Since 2013, Ranson has seen tremendous growth in all grades for both ELA and Math proficiency on North Carolina’s end-of-grade assessments.
Once a month, grade-level teaching teams dedicate 90 minutes to discussing student needs, setting goals for improvement and identifying interventions.
School counselors facilitate this time, and bring research-based suggestions for how to meet students’ needs.
How did they make it work?
Students with Disabilities
English Language Learners
After the meeting, teachers collect data on students’ progress and report back in a future Kid Talk meeting to revise interventions and goals as necessary.
Students are scheduled into cohorts with dedicated teaching teams so that teachers have deep knowledge of students and their needs
Grade-level teams dedicate 90 minutes of collaborative planning time to Kid Talk once a month
School counselors play a strong leadership role in Kid Talk. They facilitate the meeting, lead the development of student behavior contracts, and provide research-based suggestions for behavioral and academic interventions. Their roles are structured to ensure they have sufficient time to plan for Kid Talk meetings.
Grade-level leaders push in to meetings to provide additional expert support.
Tiered supports serve as a strong complement to Kid Talk, including Response to Intervention protocols for academic needs, and access to local mental health agency partners for social emotional needs
Reading scores increased from 24% to 41% in 2015 and math scores increased from 21% to 32%.
