2 CT’s New Accountability System
CT’s No Child Left Behind Waiver was approved by USDE on May 29, 2012 Replaces AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress) under NCLB with CT designed annual performance targets Replaces NCLB sanctions for schools and districts with more effective interventions Schools will no longer be identified as “in need of improvement” based on 2012 CMT/CAPT

3 Major Shifts NCLB CT’s New Indicators Target is Proficient
Target is - on average - Goal Get to 100% by 2014 Halfway to target by 2018 Only Math and Reading count Math, Reading, Writing and Science count

4 NCLB CT’s New Indicators School progress only measured by standardized test scores School progress also measured by high school graduation rates (4-year and extended) Accountable for subgroups of students of 40 or greater Still accountable for subgroups of students, but 20 students or greater

5 Performance Index Each district, school, subject and subgroup will have a Performance Index Index is between 0 and 100 Counts performance in all tested grade levels Captures performance across all performance bands Includes all tested subjects: reading, writing, math and science Incorporates all tested students, including students who take the MAS and Skills Checklist

6 How Can a School Increase its SPI (School Performance Index)?
For a school with 100 students….. NCLB CT’s New Indicators Increasing % Proficient by 9% requires moving 9 students who were not Proficient to Proficient Increasing the SPI by 3 points requires moving 9 students across any performance threshold (0.33 for each student) Advanced Goal Proficient Basic Below Basic

7 Performance Index (Students who take CMT/CAPT)
Levels of Performance “Credit” to calculate SPI Goal, Advanced 1.0 Proficient 0.67 Basic .33 Below Basic

8 Performance Index (Students who take MAS or Skills Checklist )
“Credit” to calculate SPI Goal Independent 1.0 Proficient 0.50 Basic

9 What’s the difference between the results released in July and the SPI/DPI data?
Raw data (released July 19th) Performance metrics SPI / DPI Data Results separated by grade level and subject Results aggregated across subjects and grade levels All students who were tested in a school/district included Only students who were present in the school/district for 10 months included Only currently identified ELL and SWD included ELL and SWD included for 2 years after they “exit” MAS/ Skills Checklist reported separately MAS/ Skills checklist included in index

10 CT State Targets Component Measures State Targets
Student and Subgroup Achievement School Performance Index (SPI) 88 Achievement Gaps School Performance Index Gaps < 10 Graduation Rate - 4-year graduation rate - Extended graduation rate 94% 96%

11 A 48 Points/12 years = 4 Points a Year SPI Growth 2024

12 Schools are Divided into Categories
Excelling Progressing Transitioning Review Focus Turn around

13 Future No SPI/DIP will be published for the 2013-14 school year
Current SPI assessments/expectations not aligned to CCSS expectations and new Smarter Balanced Assessment

14 The SPI alone does not represent a full picture of performance as does school classification….
(CSDE 12/7/12 Memo)

21 Case Study Avg number tested CMT/CAPT Same # Students in Grade 3
Avg number tested CMT/CAPT Same # Students in Grade 3 Grade 3 in 2006 267 Grade 8 in 2011 277 Same Students in Grade 3 to Grade 8 218 79% of grade 8 students have been in Wethersfield since grade 3 Grade 10 in 2013 262 Same Students in Grade 3 to Grade 10 193 74% of grade 10 students have been in Wethersfield since grade 3 From Grade 8 to Grade 10: 24 Students no longer enrolled at WHS

22 Cohort Case Study

23 New Students to District as of 9/3/13 (3rd Day of School this year)
Total of 87 students Grade # of New Students PreK 14 Kindergarten 13 Grade 1 5 Grades 2-4 Grades 5-6 9 SDMS 7 WHS 26

24 New Students to District as of 9/3/13 (3rd Day of School this year)
Total of 87 students 15 ELL 17 Free/Reduced Meals 17 Special Education 1 Homeless 41 (46%) High Needs Students = Either ELL, Free/Reduced, or Special Education

25 Other Measures of Success….

26 SPI Snapshots

27 Did They Meet The Target?
School SPI Math Reading Writing Science WHS 78.1 No No SDMS 85.7 No Yes *Charles Wright 80.3 No *Hanmer 83.5 No Emerson-Williams 84.0 No Highcrest 85.4 No *Webb 77.3 No * Title 1

28 Highlights All 7 schools are classified as: Transitioning
Overall SPI between 64-87 Participation rate of 95% or higher Misses one or more of the Progressing criteria Overall, district strength is reading and math

29 Achievement Gap Tracking national research, higher levels of student need are associated with lower levels of academic performance. (achievement gap) Wethersfield Schools do have some subgroups who met target.

30 Overall School Subgroup Performance
Black/AA Hispanic or Latino ELL Free/ Reduced Special Ed High Needs WHS --- No SDMS Yes Charles Wright Hanmer Emerson-Williams Highcrest Webb

31 Barriers Change is difficult Changing demographics
Changing institutional culture Changing practice
