McLain HS Designation Letter

September 22, 2015 Dear Parent/Guardian:

Tulsa Public Schools is committed to preparing its students for the fast-changing 21st century so that they have options in life and are equipped to follow their interests and dreams, including college and career. The purpose of this letter is to reaffirm our commitment to the success of ALL students and to inform you that we are still working to improve.

Despite the progress made by our students and schools, McLain High was designated as a “Priority School” under Oklahoma’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver, a set of requirements the state has with the U. S. Department of Education. This designation is based on 2013-14 test data and the fact that the school needs additional achievement growth to meet exit criteria from Priority status and is designated a C3 school.

The state designates a school with priority status if it either (1) receives a letter grade of “F” on the state’s A- F School Grading System (see http://www.ok.gov/sde/af-grades); (2) is a Title I school in the bottom 5% of Title I schools, or is a school in the bottom 5% of all schools; (3) is a high school with a graduation rate below 60% for three consecutive years; or (4) is in a school improvement partnership with the state called “C3 partnership.” The status of a school is assessed each year, and the school can be taken off the state’s list of priority schools once it makes significant achievement improvements.

District staff and McLain High’s teachers and leaders are working tirelessly to increase student achievement. This work includes:

  • 􏰀  extensive school-wide planning and monitoring to identify and address ongoing needs

  • 􏰀  high-quality curriculum shown to accelerate the learning of students who are below grade level

  • 􏰀  ongoing support in the areas of climate and culture to ensure schools are safe, secure, and supportive

    places for students to learn

  • 􏰀  data analysis so student learning is more customized to students’ individual skills and needs

  • 􏰀  professional development to prepare all teachers to reach and serve diverse students

  • 􏰀  professional feedback and supports to ensure that there is an effective teacher in every classroom

    and an effective leader in every building

    Please know that as a parent, your involvement in school improvement is vital. McLain High welcomes parents and will provide many opportunities to engage with the school and teachers throughout the year. Information you can receive from the school include the standards students should master by each grade level, academic progress toward these standards, available resources and materials, and ways in which you can support the educational process.

    Please contact the school, (918) 833-8500, if you have questions or wish to know how you can assist our school improvement efforts.

22 de septiembre del 2015 Estimado padre o tutor:

Las Escuelas Públicas de Tulsa están comprometidas en preparar a sus estudiantes para los cambios constantes del siglo 21 de forma que tengan opciones en la vida y que estén preparados para seguir sus intereses y sus sueños, incluyendo la universidad y una profesión. El propósito de esta carta es de reafirmar nuestro compromiso para el éxito de todos los estudiantes y de informarle de que seguimos trabajando para mejorar.

A pesar del avance que se ha hecho por parte de nuestros alumnos y escuelas, la escuela McLain High fue clasificada como una “escuela de prioridad” bajo la modificación de la exención “Flexibility Waiver” de la Ley de Educación Primaria y Secundaria (ESEA por sus siglas en inglés) de Oklahoma, una serie de requisitos que el estado tiene con el Departamento de Educación de los Estados Unidos. Esta clasificación se basa en la información de los exámenes del 2013-14 y porque la escuela necesita avances adicionales para reunir los estándares de salida del Estatus de Prioridad y se designa una escuela C3.

El estado clasifica a una escuela con el estatus de prioridad ya sea porque (1) recibe una calificación de “F” en el Sistema de Calificación A-F por parte del estado (vea: http://www.ok.gov/sde/af-grades); (2) es una escuela de Título I que está dentro del 5% de las escuelas con el más bajo rendimiento académico de todas las escuelas de Título I; (3) es una escuela preparatoria con índice de graduación por debajo del 60% por tres años consecutivos; o (4) es una escuela en mejoramiento con un convenio con el estado conocido como “C3 partnership.” El estatus de la escuela se evalúa cada año y la escuela puede salir de la lista de escuelas de prioridad una vez que haya hecho mejoras de aprovechamiento significativas.

El personal del distrito, la escuela McLain High , los maestros y dirigentes están trabajando diligentemente para aumentar el aprovechamiento del estudiante. Esto incluye:

  • 􏰀  Planeación y monitoreo extensivo en toda la escuela para identificar y abordar las necesidades prevalentes.

  • 􏰀  Plan de estudios de alta calidad que muestre acelerar el aprendizaje de los alumnos los cuales estén por debajo de su nivel de grado.

  • 􏰀  Apoyo regular en áreas de clima y cultura para asegurar que las escuelas estén seguras, protegidas y tengan lugares de apoyo para que los alumnos puedan aprender.

  • 􏰀  Análisis de datos para que el aprendizaje del alumnos sea personalizado a sus habilidades y necesidades individuales.

  • 􏰀  Desarrollo profesional para preparar a todos los maestros para cubrir y servir la diversidad de alumnos.

  • 􏰀  Critica profesional y ayuda para asegurar que haya un maestro preparado en cada salón de clase y un líder eficiente en cada escuela.

    Por favor tenga en cuenta que como padre, su participación en la mejora de la escuela es vital. La escuela McLain High le da la bienvenida a los padres y proporcionará muchas oportunidades para que interactúe con la escuela y con los maestros durante el año escolar. La información que usted puede recibir por parte de la escuela es, el nivel académico que el alumno tiene que dominar en cada grado, progreso académico para poder llegar a este nivel, recursos y materiales disponibles, y diferentes formas en que usted puede ayudar con el proceso educativo.

    Por favor comuníquese con la escuela, (918) 833-8500, si tiene cualquier pregunta o si quiere saber cómo puede ayudar en el esfuerzo de mejora de la escuela.

McLain Junior High School Wins High School Division and Best in Show at Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance

December 12– Tulsa, OK – McLain Junior High School (MJHS) was given the unique opportunity to participate in an event hosted by the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance this past Saturday. The event titled, “Scale Model Gingerbread Competition” features a hands-on science experience for up to 30 entries in categories ranging from elementary, junior high, high school, college/amateur professional and professional.  The event is an opportunity for students to prepare for semester finals with a project-based mini-unit.  Students were able to build a model, to scale, of Rockefeller Center.

The goal of the mini-unit is to excite our students about science, and to academically prepare for their final. Reviewing semester academic standards, using project-based learning, allowed the students to participate in multiple hands on learning experiences.  These experiences range from building a scale models, constructing sound, lights and motion panels, and designing height and motion models ranging from towers to building mousetrap cars. 

As last year’s defending 1st place champions in the junior high category, McLain Junior High School (MJHS) moved up to the high school level for the extra challenge.  This was accomplished with the help of a 9th grade mentors program comprised of student that competed in last year’s competition.  Other winners, in the High School division, were 2nd place, Edison High School for their design of the Parthenon and 3rd place, Union High School for their design of the 4x4 House. 


For more information regarding the competition, the mini-unit and “TheKnowItAlls”, please click on any of the links provided at the end of this article.

Selected models will be on display at the Hardesty Regional Library on Monday, December 14th to December 30th . The  Hardesty Regional Library is located at 8316 E 93rd St, Tulsa, OK 74133.


This mini-unit is an extension of an event from Michael DuPont with the Schusterman Family Foundation. That event titled, “TheKnowItAlls” featured a hands-on science experience for 20 middle school girls and 20 middle school boys.  In that past event, selected students were also given science kits to take home and explore science with their families. “TheKnowItAlls” event was held on Monday, November 23rd from 3:00PM – 4:30PM in rooms 134, 233 and 235 at McLain Junior High School, 4929 N. Peoria Avenue, Tulsa, OK 74126.
