School Improvement Team Update

Several of the school improvement team members recently visited three Indiana high schools to observe their instructional practices and intervention programs. The schools included Speedway High School, Brownsburg High School, and Charlestown High School. Members left the visits with a wide assortment of ideas and strategies that could benefit the staff and students of Southridge High School. Team members will be considering these ideas and strategies as we move forward with our school improvement plan. Also a big thank you to all the parents, students, and staff who completed the Climate and Culture survey. Results from the survey are being analyzed and will also be part of our school improvement process as we continue into the future.

Tutoring -several opportunities

1. SHS students can participate in the National Honor Society's tutoring program on Tuesdays and Thursdays during Impact period.

2. New Partnership with Indiana University

A new opportunity for student support made possible by a partnership between SHS, Indiana University, and the Serve Indiana grant. Starting immediately, students have access to online tutoring by Indiana University students at campuses throughout the state. Students will be required to register with the IU system, which will allow them to create a ZOOM account (the delivery platform for tutoring.) IU students will staff the tutoring service on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights from 6-9:30. An additional feature will be bilingual tutoring services, which are available on those nights from 7-9:30pm. More details can be found on the attached flyer. The focus of the online tutoring support will be the core areas of Math, Science, English, and Social Studies.

3. In addition to the online supports that are currently available, we are in the process of creating a face-to-face tutoring program that will offer supports before and after school here at SHS, as well as a couple of evening opportunities at the Huntingburg Public Library. It is anticipated that this program will start in early February. More details to come.
