Year End June 30,2012• Strong fiscal condition $1,972,266 Fund 10 Cash Balance Operations basically break even• Fully funded OPEB $615,787 in Fund 73• Fund 10 and Fund 73 reserve total $2,588,053
Confluence of more pressures, new initiatives, growing expectations• More challenges than almost any time in the history of public education in our nation.• Greater accountability and assessments are converging on local school districts requiring attention and implementation. – Educator and principal effectiveness – “NAEPizing” of the WKCE – New Student Information System – Smarter Balance – Public ratings and competition
Another New Accountability EraThis is the base year of the new School Report Cards (SRC) Still embargoed as only in draft format DPI will release later this month Next slides are not the report card The NAEP recalibrated scores (base year)
SRC Student Achievement: All Data recalibrated to NAEP New higher Goals (NAEP adjusted)Reading 1. 60% Proficient and Advanced across all tested grades (we were meeting/closing on old goal 90%) 2. Above State average across all tested gradesMath 1. 60% Proficient and Advanced across all tested grades (we were meeting/closing on old goal 90%) 2. Above State average across all tested grades
Math Proficient and Advanced NAEPized WKCE Data60.0 PdC Public School Goal is to increase to 60% Adv + Prof across all grade levels Excellent improvement/trendline as we move through the grades55.0 52.7 51.550.0 49.2 48.345.0 42.840.035.030.025.020.0 Grade 3 Grade 4 Grades 5,6 Grades 7,8 Grade 10

SRC Student Growth (base year):(2)How much knowledge changes fromyear to year. *Point credits for students moving to higher performance levels *Negative credit for students declining below proficiency.
SRC Closing Gaps (base year):(3)Need to lift all students – showgaps are closing. *Students with disabilities *Economically disadvantaged students
School Report Card (4)College and Career Ready Milestones• Graduation Rate (high School)• Attendance Rate• Grade 3 Reading (elementary)• Grade 8 Math (junior high)• ACT participation and performance (high School) Note ACT may become hs test
Looking Forward: SRC Elementary Student Achievement• Elementary increased reading/math expectations – Common Core (Quasi National Standards) Smarter Balanced test – State K Reading Test / Third grade Reading Test• Readying for increased Elementary expectations – PK to grade 4 updated elementary math – Grade 1 piloting new reading series; possible study of that Reading adoption across the elementary – The Engineering is Elementary® (EiE) project • Fosters engineering and technological literacy • Research-based, standards-driven, and tested • Integrates engineering and technology concepts and skills with elementary science
Looking Forward: Report Card Middle Grades STEM• Focus on Grade 8 Math Achievement• Middle and Junior High Math updates – New grade 5 to 8 Math series under study for next year• SRC Grade 8 Math Achievement is a breakout – Grade 8 Integrated Math 1 moving toward being the basil math – Grade 8 Algebra-Based-Physics being developed
Looking Forward• College and Career Ready – All students educated to high level; not just a select few• College/career ready work in High School – Advanced Placement level is new floor (adding) – Career Technical programming will need to be continuously updated • AG - added science level classes • Bus - added computer programming, looking at second class • FCE - added science level classes • Tech Ed - PLTW
