6 Purpose of the Consortium Transform public schools by developing an assessment and accountability system that: –Is not over-reliant on high-stakes tests –Considers needs of the local community Improve K-12 student learning –Empower students to innovate, collaborate, communicate, create, synthesize, analyze and problem-solve

7 The Call for Change Reduce the number of tests and the high- stakes nature of tests Adopt high-priority learning standards Integrate technology into student learning

8 The Call for Change Our current accountability system: penalizes districts with a diverse student population; rates schools on its lowest scores rather than the overall performance; fails to honor local control; and ignores future-ready learning skills needed for success.

9 To be competitive in a global workforce environment, our students must be able to: Innovate Create Think Critically Collaborate Communicate Problem solve Act ethically Leverage technology Future-Ready Learning Skills

10 Vision of a K-12 Classroom Relevant and engaging instructional environments Critical thinking and problem solving are the norm High-Priority Learning Standards grounded in future-ready skills Academically rigorous Digital citizenship

11 Consortium Pathway Develop high-priority learning standards, assessments and accountability systems Follow Consortium’s Guiding Principles: –Digital learning –Learning standards –Multiple assessments –Local control

12 Shared Vision Our work aligns to other transformational initiatives: Visioning Institute Resolution against High-Stakes Testing –Adopted by 86% of school boards in TX –Adopted by Texas parent and teacher organizations –Adopted by a number of chambers, city councils and organizations across the state

13 Legislation HB 2824 –Filed by Rep. Bennett Ratliff from District 115 –Representative Ratliff is a former school board member in Coppell ISD –This bill amends current law to facilitate the Consortium’s development of innovative, next-generation high priority learning standards and assessment and accountability systems
