  • NicoleNCLB was a reauthorization of ESEA
  • JessicaOur largest allocation of federal funds under ESEA is Title I
  • Jessica and Nicole if needed. 
  • Nicole (I can talk about CPEO if needed)
  • Jessica
  • Jessica BrigidAs mentioned research shows 40+ hours of tutoring needed in order for it to be effectiveGrades K, 3, 6, & 9 – are RAMPP on these grades – curriculum guidesOur goal is to begin aligning what students are learning after school to what they are learning during the school daySince MPS now has curriculum guides for these grades, we will be able to provide some PD for your tutors as a starting point for this alignment This will also enable us to begin a better collaboration between tutors & school/districtEmphasize students are eligible based on being not proficient or partially proficient in reading and math, knowing that all of the schools we are targeting are Title I schools. Priority & Focus Schools (about 28-30) – we chose those schools to have tutoring programs because those are some of our most academically struggling schoolsNot SIG schools because they already have extended day programs - would be too much
  • JessicaBrigidNo more than 5 students with each tutor – that way can meet the individual needs of each studentChoice of where tutoring takes place. It is up to the provider to make arrangements with MPS to work at a school location. More info in the FAQ6 months – we want to make sure students are getting started on time and ending by April 30th. We’ve seen a drop off in participation after April so that is why we chose this time frame – along with the fact we can get the majority of the tutoring in before state assessments in the springProgress monitoring – important as students and tutors work together to continually monitor and adjust throughout the 6 months. More than the quarterly requirement of SES
  • JessicaBrigid As much as possible, depending on the grade of the student and time in MPS, we try to identify students who need additional academic support with more than one test score.
  • NicoleThe overarching goal for NCLB was that all students would be proficient on the state assessment by the year 2014. This provision was waved and MN’s new goal is to reduce the achievement gap by 50% in 6 years. Sanctions on schools and districts for not making AYP are waived, this includes the mandatory financial set-asides. Districts now have more flexibility in how Title I funds are used and can target efforts they believe will have a greater impact on student achievement.The current labels for schools and districts in need of improvement are no longer in existence. There will be new designations that I will discuss later.MDE will annually publish two measurements for every school in the state: Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and the MMR. AYP results will be reported with new targets and no sanctions for not making AYP. The new targets will reduce the achievement gap by half within six years.
  • NicoleIn order to have the provisions waived, Minnesota’s application had to meet four principles: Minnesota was well-positioned in three of the four principles: standards, teacher and principal evaluation, and streamlining of reporting. The accountability system was the principle for which Minnesota had to do the most work, and therefore it is the area of the application that has drawn the most attention. ‘I’m going briefly go over that accountability system.
  • Jessica or NicoleEach measure is worth 25 pts for a total of 100 pts for most high schools and 75 pts for most elementary and middle schools.The MCA assessments are still used
