We WANT feedback on this before we take it for final. Important understand that learning is 60% of the index (EOCs and ACT) and the ACT is cumulative and over a domain that is much more aligned with our college and career ready standards.20Sample CalculationAbsolute Performance IndexSample Calculation for High School APerformance Composite76.2%ACT Readiness Benchmarks Achieved43.2%Graduation Rate79.1%Graduates who took and passed Alg II/Int III64.0%= 114.3 points = 64.8 points = 118.7 points = 32.0 points 330 out of 500Performance Index.762.432.791.640x 150x 150x 150x 5020Performance Index </p> <p>Growth Index</p> <p>Category 1Range TBDCategory 2Range TBDCategory 5Range TBDCategory 3Range TBDCategory 4Range TBDLow GrowthAdequate GrowthHighGrowth500Reporting: Reporting Grid ExpandedSchool 1 </p> <p>School 2</p> <p>School 3 School 4 21ESEA Waivers22OverviewOverview of ESEA Waiver Request Language and Requirements</p> <p>2223Our Opportunity</p> <p>New State Model for 2012-13</p> <p>Embed the requirements of ESEA FlexibilitySeptember 23, 2011One Coherent Model</p> <p>234 Principles24OverviewWhat the waiver requires of states:College-and-Career-Ready Expectations for All Students</p> <p>State-Developed Differentiated Recognition, Accountability, and Support</p> <p>Supporting Effective Instruction and Leadership</p> <p>Reducing Duplication and Unnecessary Burden24ESEA Waivers25OverviewImportant Things to KnowWaiver will not remove accountability; the goal is to improve how accountability is done</p> <p>States lead in the design </p> <p>Some of the requirements are specific and waivers are contingent upon four major principles</p> <p>Release from some of the requirements of NCLB may happen as early as this year</p> <p>Schools will continue to have AYP designations although 1) The state can set new annual measurable objectives and 2) AYP status does not have to trigger sanctions2526Overview of ESEA FlexibilityRequires identification of</p> <p>Reward Schools highest performing and highest progressPriority Schools lowest achieving based on proficiency and lack of progressFocus Schoolscontributing to the achievement gap</p> <p>Important Notes on Principle 2 from USED </p> <p>2627Annual Measurable ObjectivesThe State must re-set annual measurable objectives This means relieving schools from the requirement that all students be proficient in 2014.Our suggested method:Reset AMOs for all students to be proficient by 2019-2020</p> <p> Notes:All schools will continue to have all or nothing AYP designations however AYP status will not trigger sanctions2728</p> <p>TimeLines</p> <p> 5 Year 6 month</p> <p>Draft - Sept 201128</p> <p>Five Year29Time LineDraft - Wed, September 28, 2011 Proposed only.
