15 April 19, 2010FASFEPA/ECTAC NCLB TA FORUM15 Rewards Communities of practice Financial incentives Reward Districts & Reward Schools Competitive preference to be a reward school/district in grant competition

16 April 19, 2010FASFEPA/ECTAC NCLB TA FORUM16 Not-rewards (Challenge Schools) States to identify Challenge schools that are in need of specific assistance First category – lowest performing five percent of schools in each state based on student academic achievement, student growth & graduation rates Second category is the next five percent will be in a warning category and will need to implement researched based locally determined strategies

17 April 19, 2010FASFEPA/ECTAC NCLB TA FORUM17 Challenge Schools Third category – Required to implement data driven interventions and support students who are following behind All schools in the challenge category are likely to be required to change staff &/or governance

18 April 19, 2010FASFEPA/ECTAC NCLB TA FORUM18 Harkin’s Job Bill – April 14th The Keep Our Educators Working Act will create an Education Jobs Fund modeled after the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF) that was established in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the ‘Recovery Act’). The SFSF is currently supporting more than 300,000 education jobs, such as teachers, principals, librarians, and counselors, and is widely credited with mitigating the impact of the recent recession. However, even with the SFSF, schools across the country have laid off workers, and the job outlook is worse for the school year. Additional resources are needed to help states and districts avoid a “funding cliff” that would result in even more layoffs.

25 April 19, 2010FASFEPA/ECTAC NCLB TA FORUM25 Reading: Text complexity and the growth of comprehension To foster students’ ability to comprehend literary and informational texts of steadily increasing complexity, the Standards (starting formally in grade 2) define what proportion of the texts students read each year should come from a particular text complexity grade band (2– 3, 4–5, 6–8, 9–10, or 11–12). Whatever they are reading, students must also show a steadily increasing ability to discern more from and make fuller use of text, including making an increasing number of connections among ideas and between texts, considering a wider range of textual evidence, and becoming more sensitive to inconsistencies, ambiguities, and poor reasoning in texts.
