Changes to the Bonus Points ELL Classification Rate Only Full Academic Year ELL students will be included in the reclassification rate calculation Only schools with 10 or more students are evaluated Test 95% of ELL students on AZELLA during the school year
Composite Score –Bonus Points5-year Graduation Rate Baseline Year is 2006 or the schools first year serving grade 12, whichever is the latest The graduation rate from the year prior is used in the profile (i.e., 2010 grad rate was used for 2011 A-F profile ) Criteria for Grad Rate points (3) are earned in one of three ways Graduation RatesIn order to meet the TargetPoints Earned 3-Yr Avg for 5-Yr Grad Rate>= 90%3 Current Yr 5-Yr Grad Rate >= 74% & 1% Increase3 Current Yr 5-Yr Grad Rate < 74% & 2% Increase3
Composite Score –Bonus Points Dropout Rate Baseline Year is 2006 or the schools first year of operation -whichever is latest A school will not be evaluated on dropout rate if it has less than 15 students in the school Composite Score –Bonus Points Dropout Rate Criteria for Dropout Rate points (3) are earned in one of three ways Dropout Rates In order to meet the TargetPoints Earned 3-Yr Avg Dropout Rate<= 6% 3 Current Yr Dropout Rate < = 9%1% Decrease 3 Current Yr Dropout Rate > 9%2% Decrease 3
Composite Score The composite scores is 50% of the A-F Accountability Profile Measures of Academic Progress Percent Passing AIMS0 to 100 ELL Target0 or 3 bonus pts Graduation Rate Target0 or 3 bonus pts Dropout Rate Target0or 3 bonus pts Total: 100 points possible + 9 bonus points
Beginning in 2012… Inclusion of AIMS A Results The % of students passing in the current academic year will be included in the composite portion of the model (1% cap). 1 point Added to all schools to address the point lost on the total possible growth percentiles (1-99). 95% Tested Criteria In an effort to respond to the U.S. Dept. of Ed waiver, AZ has incorporated this into the A-F model.
