2 It is the mission of the Marion School District to provide our students with a basic program of instruction so that they will acquire the academic, social, and decision- making skills needed to become productive citizens in our rapidly changing technological world.

3 We recognize individual differences in students and believe that all children can learn. We strive to meet their needs and interests by offering a balanced curriculum and creating an atmosphere conducive to learning.

17 Annual Measureable Objectives (AMOs) Targeted Achievement Gap Group (TAGG) Classification System:  Exemplary  Achieving  Needs Improvement  Needs Improvement Focus  Needs Improvement Priority

18 Schools no longer have to focus on meeting Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) – a single measure, assigned arbitrarily that was the same for everyone regardless of where they were starting from or the challenges in their student population. Instead, we look at performance, growth, and graduation rate (for high schools) and establish Annual Measureable Objectives (AMOs) that are unique to each school. Each school and school district is assigned AMOs based on student growth, student performance, and graduation rate (for high schools). By looking at the data in different ways, schools gain clarity regarding the areas in which improvement efforts should be focused.

19 Targeted Achievement Gap Group (TAGG) – one population group which includes: Economically disadvantaged Students with disabilities English language learners It only takes 25 students to make a TAGG group. Eliminates multiple counting of students who are in more than one subgroup.

37 You must test 95% of all students (including mobile) to meet percent tested. You will be a “Needs Improvement School” the first year you do not test 95% in Math or Literacy.

38 You can be classified as Achieving through one year, or three years in performance or growth (where applicable). In order to be designated as Achieving for Literacy or Math, a school/district must meet the projected AMO or 94% proficien t ESEA TAGG information is provided as well.
