  • Each year I put together an updated data summary booklet that serves as a reference for Board Members and administrators throughout the year. Available online.
  • What do we learn from the data and what questions do we have as a result of examining the data? What are the root causes of problems AND successes. Here is a photo of teachers looking at data. The above is the simple definition of Professional Learning Communities, a key component of building action plans. ROOT CAUSE ACTIVITY: Mrs. Kinney How do we find the root cause. This was done at the data inservice for all school data teams.
  • More students than last year.
  • These data are very encouraging because all of our students at all grade levels have high attendance rates.
  • We had only 18 English Language Learners in the district up three from last year. The levels begin with “entering” where the student cannot read or write English to “reaching” where a student exits the ESL program.
  • High participation rates, however a slight drop.
  • Just a sample of the many clubs offered. A drop from last year.
  • A slight drop from last year.
  • Current figures based on 1:1 support from counselors and encouragement from teachers.
  • More data in data report.
  • Must be college and career ready: Fewer students are seeking employment, and more are attending junior or community colleges. 172 75 50 52 35 11 59 60 18
  • Up from 72% last year.
  • Writing issue in Data Summary: RA training and support, and we are looking to increase writing over time, needs more emphasis. Will include writing and science in this report next year.
  • Raised the percentage that must be proficient this year.
  • The state groups the scores in K-3, 6-8 and then grade 11. What assumptions can you make based on these data? What additional data do we need to confirm or refute our assumptions? 4Sight Benchmark Assessments Fountis and Pennel Levels DIBELS Demographics Attendance
  • What do these data tell us? Grade level issues: 5 th grade assessment statewide issue, includes more to be assessed. Why differences in buildings, grade levels, etc.? Sue and Karen led two data days in which teams: Analyzed data Determined root causes (not just data, but contextual data) And began to develop building action plans with this information (will be available November 5 th ) Remember varied successes depending on the school. All want 100% proficiency K-12 for ALL students.
  • What do these data tell us?
  • The focus on the five themes of high performing schools is paying off and we must keep that focus for the students of this district. Building Action Plans focus our efforts on key effective components for running a school: Climate (safe and orderly environment) SMART Goals (focus on a viable curriculum) Professional Learning Communities and subsequent interventions for any student who needs assistance or enrichment, or other supports
