  • Political leaders who joined with the president in overwhelming support of the enactment of NCLB believed that they knew what had to be done in the schools and classrooms in order to improve the learning of ALL students. So, in an attempt to legislate teaching and learning, strategies were mandated, such as the regular assessment of student progress through standardized tests (the SOLs), and the insistence that instructional methods that are proven to be effective by scientific research be used. Schools that followed these mandates, yet failed to demonstrate improvement faced punishing sanctions.
  • The Act has admirable goals, which we will review, but NCLB has not met without resistance from key stakeholders, particularly parents who began to question the impact that the new standards and high-stakes testing had on the daily experience of students in schools.
  • The No Child Left Behind Act has the following five performance goals for states. READ SLIDE
    As you can see, the key and controversial phrase here is ALL STUDENTS.
    Address #1 with audience: Going back to number 1, 2013 is right around the corner. How many of you have seen newspaper articles lately, or heard on the news, about the reauthorization of NCLB? Just recently The Virginian-Pilot ran an article on President Obama’s plan to let states apply for waivers to NCLB requirements. 45 states have sought waivers, including Virginia. The article stated that “Nearly everyone agrees that the fix needs fixing. The law that was supposed to improve American education has left schools grumbling at being labeled failures, state officials fuming, and complaints everywhere about required testing.” So with the reauthorization coming due, it will be interesting to see how the federal government responds.
  • AYP has been identified as one of the sources of controversy surrounding NCLB. The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) requires states to set annual measurable objectives of proficiency in reading and mathematics, participation in testing, and graduation and attendance. These objectives are in addition to the high standards for learning and achievement required under Virginia's Standards of Learning (SOL) program. Schools and school divisions that meet the annual objectives required by the federal education law are considered to have made adequately yearly progress (AYP) toward the goal of 100 percent proficiency of all students in reading and mathematics by 2014.
     
  • 2011-2012 AYP ratings are based on student achievement during the 2010-2011 school year. AYP subgroups include white, black, Hispanic, students with disabilities, economically disadvantaged students, and students with limited-English proficiency.
  • According to the Virginia Department of Education, 701 schools in the state of Virginia met the requirements for AYP. Indian Lakes Elementary was one of those schools. As you can see from the chart not all schools or divisions have been successful.
  • Compass to 2015 is a current initiative established in Virginia Beach City Public Schools to help our students meet the requirements of NCLB. You can see the desired outcomes for our students on this slide. They will be…
  • Compass to 2015 is broken down into 5 strategic objectives. Objective 1 focuses on engaging students in meaningful assignments to help them be self directed learners.
  • Objective 2 focuses on a balanced assessment system. Students should not only be tested about their knowledge at the end of a unit, but before, during, and after the unit or lesson. We will look at this more in depth later in the presentation.
  • Objective 3 focuses on closing the gap across subgroups including African American males, special education students, and students who receive free/reduced lunch.
  • Objective 4 focuses on the relationships between schools and parents, including community members. Indian Lakes has a strong Partners in Education program and PTA.
  • Objective 5 focuses on the resources available to students and teachers to enhance learning.
  • Along with Compass to 2015, schools have been surveyed to see where their strengths are. Please take a moment to read the definition of a vanguard school. (pause) A vanguard school is defined as a “model school” in one of the three following areas: technology, response to intervention, and balanced assessment. Balanced assessment is the focus of Indian Lakes this year. We will discuss each area in depth on the following slides.
  • Using technology in the classroom has proved to be an excellent tool to engage learners. Indian Lakes has interactive, promethean boards installed in each classroom. We have begun using iPads in some classrooms for learning support and enrichment, and Activ Voters are being used this year as a form of assessment.
  • Response to Intervention, RTI for short, allows teachers to assess each student, based on individual needs. If the students are struggling or excelling, those areas can be targeted. Some examples present at Indian Lakes include SST, behavior intervention plans, modified shortened assignments, and gifted referrals.
  • Balanced assessment is the final area where schools may strive towards becoming a vanguard school. Share excerpt from “Education Transformers in Action.” There are 3 types of assessment. Diagnostic occurs before the learning takes place. An example is a pretest or a survey. Formative assessment takes place throughout a lesson or unit to guide teaching and learning. Some examples include exit cards, and observations. Lastly, summative assessments occur at the end of a unit, and some examples include tests, projects, or the SOLs.
  • (Wrap up) Thank you for coming!

    1. 1. A Brief Overview on No Child Left Behind AYP SOL Accreditation Compass to 2015 Vanguard Balanced Assessment
    2. 2. No Child Left Behind(NCLB) The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) was signed into law by President Bush. It is historic educational reform enacted at the federal level for the purpose of improving the academic performance of ALL students.
    3. 3. NCLB Mandates The Act was designed to close the achievement gap between the average performing majority and the lower performing minority subgroups.
    4. 4. No Child Left Behind(NCLB) 1. By 2013-2014, all students will reach high standards, at a minimum attaining proficiency or better in reading and mathematics. 2. All limited English proficient students will become proficient in English and reach high academic standards, at a minimum attaining proficiency or better in reading and mathematics. 3. By 2005-2006, all students will be taught by highly qualified teachers. 4. All students will be educated in learning environments that are safe, drug free, and conducive to learning. 5. All students will graduate from high school.
    5. 5. Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Adequate Yearly Progress, or AYP, is a measurement defined by the United States federal No Child Left Behind Act that allows the U.S. Department of Education to determine how every public school and school district in the country is performing academically according to results on standardized tests.
    6. 6. Key Points to Consider For a Virginia school to make AYP,  more than 86 percent of students overall and students in all subgroups must have demonstrated proficiency in reading  more than 85 percent of students overall and in all subgroups must have demonstrated proficiency in mathematics  it must exceed separate requirements and objectives. A school or school division that falls short on a single requirement or objective is not considered to have made AYP.
