LEGISLATION AND POLICIES Federal, state, and local legislation or administrative policies promote POS development and implementation.
PARTNERSHIPS Ongoing relationships among education, business, and other community stakeholders are central to POS design, implementation, and maintenance.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Sustained, intensive, and focused opportunities for administrators, teachers, and faculty foster POS design, implementation, and maintenance.
ACCOUNTABILITY AND EVALUATION SYSTEMS Systems and strategies to gather quantitative and qualitative data on both POS components and student outcomes are crucial for ongoing efforts to development and implement POS.
COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS STANDARDS Content standards that define what students are expected to know and be able to do to enter and advance in college and/or their careers comprise the foundation of a POS.
COURSE SEQUENCES Non-duplicative sequences of secondary and postsecondary courses within a POS ensure that students transition to postsecondary education without duplicating classes or requiring remedial coursework. (Individual Career Plan)
CREDIT TRANSFER AGREEMENTS Credit transfer agreements provide opportunities for secondary students to be awarded transcripted postsecondary credit, supported with formal agreements among secondary and postsecondary education systems. (Cooperative Alliance Program)
GUIDANCE COUNSELING AND ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT Guidance counseling and academic advisement help students to make informed decisions about which POS to pursue.
TEACHING AND LEARNING STRATEGIES Innovative and creative instructional approaches enable teachers to integrate academic and technical instruction and students to apply academic and technical learning in their POS coursework.
TECHNICAL SKILLS ASSESSMENTS National, state, and/or local assessments provide ongoing information on the extent to which students are attaining the necessary knowledge and skills for entry into and advancement in postsecondary education and careers in their chosen POS.

A-F Report CardIs comprised of three (3) main sections each worth one-third of the overall grade: – Student Achievement - counts one-third or 33% – Student Growth - counts one-third or 34% • Overall student growth (math & reading) – 17% • Bottom 25% student growth – 17% – Whole School Performance - counts one-third or 33% 3.75-4.0 = A 2.75-3.74 = B 1.75-2.74 = C 0.75-1.74 = D Below 0.75 = F
High School Whole School Performance Graduation Rate 3% 3% Adv Coursework 3% 3% Participation 3% AP/IB Exam 3% Performance 3% Adv Coursework Performance College Entrance Exam Participation College Entrance Exam Performance Low Performing 8th 79% Grade Graduation 5-Year Graduation
Graduation RateGraduation Rate – Counts 79% of 33% (or 26% of total) 90-100% = A 80-89% = B CALCULATION: 70-79% = C # of students who graduated in 4 60-69% = D Below 60% = F years or less ÷ Total # of graduates in current year + # of GED’s in current year + 12th grade dropouts in current year + 11th grade dropouts last year + 10th grade dropouts for 2 years ago + 9th grade dropouts for 3 years ago
Participation in Advanced CourseworkParticipation in advanced coursework (i.e. AP, IB, AICE, concurrent enrollment, industry certification courses and Cooperative Alliance courses) – Student must earn passing grade to count for participation (A, B, C, or D) – Tech Centers & CTE HS instructors will provide data to high schools – Can be taken at high school, technology center or regional site of OSSM – Grades 9-12 – Counts 3% of 33% (or 1% of total)
PARTICIPATION points are calculated at the STUDENT LEVEL No matter how many advanced courses students are taking, they ONLY COUNT ONCE per year. (example: industry certification course and AP course taken by the student in the same year)
Participation in Advanced Coursework CALCULATION: # accelerated coursework participants in grades 9-12 ÷ # of all students enrolled in grades 11-12 on the Accreditation Report 75-100% = A 65-74% = B 50-64% = C 30-49% = D Below 30% = F
Performance on AP or IB Exams Performance on AP or IB exams – AP - score 3 or higher – IB - score 4 or higher 75-100% = A – Counts 3% of 33% (or 1% of total) 65-74% = B 50-64% = C CALCULATION: 30-49% = D # test takers passing the exam Below 30% = F ÷ # of test takers Schools with students enrolled in AP or IB courses that do not attempt the exam will be given an “F” (if entire class does not attempt)
Performance in Advanced Courses Performance in concurrent enrollment, AICE, industry certification course and Cooperative Alliance course – Course must be a credit bearing course, not a remedial course – Student must earn credit in the course, earning a "C" or higher grade – Industry certification course: Student must pass certification exam (last year “C” or higher counted) – Counts 3% of 33% (or 1% of total) http://www.flickr.com/photos/mgstyer/4661387399/
Also…– The industry certification test must represent 60 hours of instruction to count for a performance point.– Industry certification exam: Tech Centers & CTE HS programs will provide data on which students pass exams to ODCTE on Follow-up Report. ODCTE will provide this data to SDE
Performance in Advanced Courses CALCULATION: # of students enrolled who meet criteria ÷ # of all students who took an accelerated course or subject area examination during the academic year 90-100% = A 80-89% = B 70-79% = C 60-69% = D Below 60% = F
Industry Certification Exams List of eligible exams/certifications to count for A-F Report Card and to be recorded on high school transcripts www.okcttc.com
For additional exams to be added to the approved list Approval process is in place for exams to be added to this list – Field will work with State Program Administrators for approval requests – The deadline for the current school year will be April 1st to be counted for that year on the A-F Report Card – Certification Approval Committee will meet quarterly to approve additions to this list
College Entrance Exam ParticipationCollege entrance exam participation (ACT or SAT) – Can be taken any time in students career – If ACT is taken multiple times it only counts once in students career - If SAT is taken multiple times it only counts once in students career – A student can be counted once for ACT and once for SAT – Counts 3% of 33% (or 1% of total) – For the next few years counts 4.5% because data from #7 and #8 not available
College Entrance Exam Participation CALCULATION: # 12th graders ever taking an exam ÷ # 12th graders on the Accreditation Report 75-100% = A 65-74% = B 50-64% = C 30-49% = D Below 30% = F
College Entrance Exam Performance College entrance exam performance – ACT = 20 or higher – SAT = 1410 or higher – National Test dates only - no residual tests – Most recent test score taken on ACT or SAT - data provided to SDE from ACT – If ACT is taken multiple times it only counts once in students career - If SAT is taken multiple times it only counts once in students career – A student can be counted once for ACT and once for SAT – Counts 3% of 33% (or 1% of total) – For the next few years counts 4.5% because data from #7 and #8 not available
College Entrance Exam Performance CALCULATION: # 12th graders scoring 20 or higher on ACT or 1410 or higher on SAT ÷ # 12th graders who took the ACT and SAT The 12th graders are tracked as a 75-100% = A 65-74% = B cohort. If a student takes the exam 50-64% = C once as a 9th grader, the exam will 30-49% = D count on the report card when the Below 30% = F student is a 12th grader
PERFORMANCE - a student can earn more than one point if taken in different categories (examples count 2 points): • Passing an industry certification test and scoring 20 or higher on an ACT; • Scoring 20 or higher on ACT and 1410 or higher on SAT; • Scoring a 3 or higher on an AP course and passing an industry certification test
HS Graduation Rate of Low Achieving 8th Graders High school graduation rate of low achieving eighth grade students – School from which they graduate gets to count them even if they move around after 8th grade – Counts 3% of 33% (when data becomes available) http://www.flickr.com/photos/mgstyer/4661387399/
Low Achieving 8th GradersCALCULATION:# 12th graders who earned a regular HS diploma by the end of the 2011-12 school year who scored Unsatisfactory or Limited Knowledge on the 8th grade Reading or Math State Assessment ÷# low-performing first-time 9th graders in fall 2008+ low-performing students who transfer in- Low performing students who transfer out, emigrate, or die during school years 2008-09, 2009-2010, 2010- 2011, and 2011-2012 85-100% = A 75-84% = B 65-74% = C 55-64% = D Below 55% = F
