Breakthrough Magnet School North Success Stories
Breakthrough North has many success stories from the 2017-2018 school year.
They were a part of the Restorative Practice Cohort 3 this year. While full implementation was not set to begin until the 2018-2019 school year, Breakthrough North staff fully embraced the restorative model and began implementation this year. In partnership with the Character Curriculum and school wide mindfulness programming, they have seen a decrease in out of class discipline referrals and an increase in school climate improvement.
In looking at literacy data, they determined that a more balanced approach would support student achievement and they designed a purposeful, balanced literacy block that was individualized to educating each child wherever he or she is.
As grade level teams, they created an intentional process for “unpacking” math units and prioritizing math instruction. This also helped to align instruction to the CCSS and create more meaningful math experiences for students.
The school exceeded its target of having more than 80% of our families attend 2 or more events, other than parent teacher conferences.
