The staff population is 1.9% African-American, 8 % Anglo, 0% Asian, 82.7% Hispanic, 26.2% male and 73.8% female with an average of 9.5 years of experience. The overall mobility rate for the campus is approximately 24.5%, with a drop-out rate of 0%. The average daily attendance rate for students is 95%. The average daily attendance rate for staff is 96%. There were a total of 422 discipline referrals this year, a decrease of 6.4% from last year.
SPC. Rafael Hernando III Middle School serves 146 English Language Learner students, 86 students in the Gifted and Talented program (56% males, 44% females), 26 students identified for 504 services, 105 Tier II students, 150 Tier III students; 77 students were served though Special Education services (7%) and 2 out of 8 students that were tested, but did not qualify for special education services. Our School-wide Title I program consists of parent involvement activities, professional development and opportunities, Local Campus Curriculum Coach. We offer tutoring in all subject areas afterschool, Saturday School and during intersession. We also have a parent liaison on campus who provides parenting classes on nutrition, improving student study skills and English as a Second Language for parents.
The site-based decision-making team looked at last year’s program evaluations, survey results, and TAKS results. Committees were formed to look for areas of weaknesses and strengths. The data showed:
We are committed to student success and achievement. TAKS scores were disaggregated for all students using the 2011 TAKS Academic results. Students were placed homogeneously based on their previous year's performance, but may also be placed in remedial Math and Reading classes.
Passing rates on the 2010-2011 TAKS tests are:
** The 6th grade reading scores were 85% passing rate with 35% commended performance. The expected goal for 6th grade will be 90% passing rate with a 50% commended performance rate. Our biggest area of weakness in 6th grade reading was the high number of ELL learners and the low performance of our SPED resource students. An additional concern will be to increase the rigor within this subject area to ensure student success in the new state assessments.
**The 6th grade math scores were 90% passing rate with a 40% commended performance rate. The expected goal for 6th grade will be 95% passing rate with a 50% commended performance rate. Our biggest area of weakness was the low performance of our SPED resource students. An additional concern will be to increase the rigor within this subject area to ensure student success in the new state assessment.
** The 7th grade reading scores were 90% passing rate with a 31% commended performance rate. The expected goal for 7th grade is 95% passing rate with a 50% commended performance rate. Our biggest area of concern in 7th grade reading was the low performance of the SPED resource students. An additional concern will be to increase the rigor within this subject area to ensure student success in the new state assessment.
** The 7th grade writing scores were 98% passing rate with a 44% commended performance rate. The expected goal for 7th grade will be 100% passing rate with a 50% commended performance rate.
** The 7th grade Math scores were 84% passing rate with a 22% commended performance rate. The expected goal for 7th grade will be 90% passing rate with a 50% commended performance rate. The biggest area of concern was the low performance of the SPED resource and SCA students. An additional concern will be to increase the rigor within this subject area to ensure student success in the new state assessment.
** The 8th grade reading scores were 92% passing rate with a 45% commended performance rate. The expected goal for 8th grade will be 95% passing rate with a 50% commended performance rate.

II. Students (Goal 1)

Strengths:
In the 2010-2011 school year we saw great improvements in Science scores with a 14 percentage point increase in passing rate. We also saw an increase in 8th grade Math scores, achieving an 89% passing rate. We also have seen 5 to 10 percentage point increases in the Commended Performance rates in subject areas. In the area of Athletics we have seen the students excel with an increase in the amount of Division and District Championships. In the area of Academics we made great strides in the UIL Academic competition, the number of students who qualified to participate in the City and State Science Fair and in Mathematics competitions.

Needs:
For the upcoming school year, we will continue to enable increased student success in the areas of Academics, Athletics and Fine Arts. We will continue to concentrate on assisting our Limited English Proficient (LEP), Special Education and Pre-AP students. We hope by such focus we will see improvements in both our passing and commended rates.

III. Staff Development (Goal 2)

Strengths:
Hernando Middle School has 63 teachers who serve over 1069 students in grades 6TH, 7TH, and 8TH. To ensure student success and meeting campus goals, our teachers will complete and update a periodic needs assessment, plan and implement best teaching strategies, and evaluate student progress through gathered data. The most recent data obtained and reviewed includes the 2011 TAKS performance results in Math, Reading, Writing, Science and History, At-risk data reports, TELPAS results, PEIMS data and attendance records. Rafael Hernando Middle School Faculty will continue gathering academic data from sources such as the state standards, PEIMS data, Commended students ratios, TAKS scores, the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS), Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), Benchmark exams, and the community to determine the needs of the students. Teachers will meet within their academic departments and analyze the data to plan and implement effective strategies for our students. They will implement instructional strategies and evaluate student achievement throughout the course of the 2011-2012 school year.

Hernando MS will attract, retain and prepare highly qualified teachers through proper and relevant Staff Development opportunities. Our teachers will participate in at least five academic Staff Development sessions throughout the school year and will have weekly meetings to organize information and plan with the Local Curriculum Coach and members of the Administration. Teachers will also attend Staff Development appropriate for their grade level and content areas. Our Special Education and Bilingual/ESL Departments will be restructured to better meet the needs of our students. We will ensure that “highly qualified” teachers are hired and provided with on-campus mentors and a TIPS mentor. Hernando MS Faculty and Administration will ensure the implementation of the ELA curriculum, the coordination of the TEA Algebra I Readiness grant, and the continual implementation of the SPED Inclusion program.

Needs:
In order to meet the performance challenges of all Hernando students for the 2011-2012 school year, the faculty and staff will engage in the following work:

1. SIT Committee will consistently analyze existing assessment results, current practices, and support systems in order to develop measurable goals for individual students at each grade level and for each tested subject.

2. Campus Leadership Team, faculty and staff will analyze all data from assessments. This data will be used to develop and provide interventions and instructional modifications as needed for each student.

3. Campus Administration and the Leadership Team will schedule department meetings to review assessment results, chart student growth, develop, maintain, and analyze goals for each student. Instructional modifications will be based on assessment results. Parents will be contacted consistently in order to work together to determine if further interventions are necessary.

4. Analysis of services provided to bilingual/ELL students will be reviewed consistently through the LPAC committee. Local curriculum coaches will coordinate appropriate assessments, documentation, and work closely with classroom ELL teachers to serve and provide immediate assistance to those students who are at-risk or in danger of failing.

5. Regular analysis of Special Education services will ensure students are offered a rich and rigorous curriculum and are served in the least restrictive environment. Recommendations for testing and remediation programs will continue to be developed, evaluated, and assessed through the campus TST committee.

Hernando Middle School students will participate in a wide variety of activities to promote college readiness and career readiness. Activities will consist of career day, college awareness, teachers college t-shirt days, field trips to high school magnet programs and high school orientations. Advanced curriculum will be provided to students in Math, English/Language Arts, History and Science.

IV. Parental and Community Engagement (Goal 3)

Strengths:
Parental involvement is extremely important at Hernando Middle School. We understand parents are an integral part of our student’s education. The Title One Parent Liaison will coordinate parental involvement activities and classes throughout the school year. We will have an established PTO with goals and elect new board officers. We will establish monthly parenting classes. We will offer two (Fall/Spring) Parent-Teacher conference nights to inform parents of academic progress of students and establish an open line of communication. We will continue to provide a Parent Newsletter on a monthly basis. We will offer Career Day for students, inviting community members to share information on the different career opportunities that are available. We will implement a student/parent/school compact that is signed by the student, parent, and principal, to ensure a common understanding of home/school responsibilities. An Effective Schools Survey will be given to students, parents, and teachers. We will use the results to better meet the needs of everyone in our school community.

Needs:
We hope that in the 2011-2012 school year we will increase parent involvement in the PTO committee. We will provide an additional three activities in which parents may participate.

V. Summary

Hernando MS opened its doors on August 3rd, 2009 to over 800 students and fifty teachers coming from various campuses. The transition to their new campus was smooth as a strong sense of Cavalier pride was instilled in all students and faculty members. Entering our third year, we will continue to encourage positive leadership skills and behaviors from all students in all areas and best teaching practices from all staff members.

Third year goals are set based on the 2010-2011 data. In academics, our students will be expected to improve in all areas as measured by their tests in the both the passing rates and the commended performance rates. In the hiring and retaining of highly qualified teachers, campus and district administration will provide relevant and effective Staff Development sessions to ensure that teachers have a solid foundation in the core subject they teach and in using technology tools. We will continue to explore ways to provide information to parents and afford opportunities for the community to become part of our school.
