For discussion: Middle school report card legend 1 Any metrics of particular interest for focus group feedback? MetricDefinitionWhy it's important Outcomes Readiness % of 8th graders meeting/exceeding state standards in reading and math % of 8th graders exceeding state standards in reading and math Percent of 8th graders meeting or exceeding and percent of 8th graders exceeding state standards on both the reading and math ISAT exams. A successful transition from middle to high school is important for success in high school and beyond. 8th grade performance against state standards indicates how well students are prepared to transition to high school. 2 % of 8th graders passing Algebra I with grade of C or better Percent of students who took Algebra I and earned a grade of C or better by the end of 8th grade. Students who take Algebra in middle school have more advanced math skills later in life. Further, high school students who took Algebra in MS are more likely to take Calculus in HS, an important course for success in college. Success % of most recent alumni Freshman on track Percent of students who were promoted from our middle school to high school who have earned sufficient credit to be promoted to sophomore year without failing more than one core class by the end of their freshman year (not including summer school). Success in freshman courses is a key predictor of ultimate success in and graduation from high school. This metric can therefore indicate how well middle schools prepared students for high school success. Progress On track % of 6th graders meeting/exceeding state standards in reading and math % of 6th graders exceeding state standards in reading and math Percent of 6th graders meeting or exceeding and percent of 6th graders exceeding state standards on both the reading and math ISAT exams. A successful transition from elementary to middle school is important for student success in middle school and beyond. 6th grade performance against state standards indicates where students need help to get on track. Performance % of students meeting/exceeding state standards % of students exceeding state standards Percent of students meeting or exceeding and percent of students exceeding state standards for all subjects on the ISAT exam (across grades 6, 7, 8). Indicates whether students are performing at or above acceptable standards set by the state in core subjects. 1. Excluding those metrics not overlapping with HS report card. Report card rubrics

For discussion: Elementary school report card legend 1 Any metrics of particular interest for focus group feedback? MetricDefinitionWhy it's important Outcomes Readiness/ Success % of 3rd graders meeting/exceeding state standards in reading and math % of 3rd graders exceeding state standards in reading and math Percent of 3rd graders meeting or exceeding and percent of 3rd graders exceeding state standards on both the reading and math ISAT exams. Students not at acceptable reading and math levels by the third grade risk struggling in later years; they should receive specialized help to get them on track and ready for the next school level. % of 5th graders meeting/exceeding state standards in reading and math % of 5th graders exceeding state standards in reading and math Percent of 5th graders meeting or exceeding and percent of 5th graders exceeding state standards on both the reading and math ISAT exams. A successful transition from elementary to middle school is important for student success in middle school and beyond. 5th grade performance against state standards indicates how well students are prepared to transition to middle school. Progress On track % of students Kindergarten ready TBD - Kindergarten Independent Development Survey ('KIDS') results Helps identify whether Kindergarteners have developed necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in school. In turn, this information can help guide classroom instruction and support decision making on how to use resources. Performance % of students meeting/exceeding state standards % of students exceeding state standards Percent of students meeting or exceeding and percent of students exceeding state standards for all subjects on the ISAT exam (across grades 3, 4, 5). Indicates whether students are performing at or above acceptable standards set by the state in core subjects. 1. Excluding those metrics not overlapping with HS report card. Report card rubrics
