35 35 Monitoring of class size reduction is based on Average Daily Enrollment Similar to reporting done for K-3 CSR Morgan-Hart CSR Class Size Reduction Reporting Number of Days in the Reporting Period Cumulative Number of Students Enrolled = Average Daily Enrollment

36 36 Class Size Reduction Reporting But there are some unique attributes to QEIA Applies to core subjects at middle and high school Targets vary by grade level

37 37 Class Size Reduction Reporting Cumulative Number of Days Enrolled Grades K-8: Beginning of the school year through April 15 Grade 9-12: Entire school year as put into units of months of instruction First month of the school year or from the first month that a new class was created to the last month ending on or before June 30

38 38 Class Size Reduction Reporting Grades K-8 Reporting Steps: Collect total enrollment by day for all classrooms within the grade level from first day of school until April 15 For combination classes, the grade level with most number of students becomes the grade level of the class for QEIA purposes

39 39 Class Size Reduction Reporting Grades K-8 Reporting Steps: Sum the active daily enrollments and divide the sum by the total number of class days through April 15. The result is the average class size for the class for the year.

40 40 Class Size Reduction Monitoring Grades 9-12 Reporting This is more complicated because there are usually more multi-grade level classes Grade levels by core subjects have different targets Different types of scheduling options – such as block schedules and courses spanning less than the full year

41 41 Class Size Reduction Monitoring Grades 9-12 Reporting Steps For each core course class within each grade level Calculate Active Monthly Enrollment –Cumulative number of students enrolled each day divided by the number of instructional days in the month

42 42 Class Size Reduction Monitoring Grades 9-12 Reporting Special Circumstances Partial Year Course: When calculating active monthly enrollment adjust the number of instructional days if period is less than one month or a partial month

43 43 Class Size Reduction Reporting Elective Courses Non-core courses may not exceed the ratio from (Monitoring will begin in )

44 44 Class Size Reduction Reporting District Student Information Systems Capable of providing class size reports for average daily enrollments The Assistance Centers will be collecting and distributing information about how to use your student information system to produce necessary data

45 45 Class Size Reduction Reporting - Example

46 46 Class Size Reduction Monitoring Monitoring at the end of : Substantially Met 2 points – at least 1/3 of the way in meeting CSR requirement 1 point – at least 1/6 of the way in meeting the CSR requirement 0 points – less than 1/6 of the way in meeting the CSR requirement Quality Education Investment Act of 2006 (QEIA) 46

47 47 Class Size Reduction Monitoring Monitoring at the end of 2008 – 09: Middle School Example: Quality Education Investment Act of 2006 (QEIA) 47 Grades # of Classes required to meet 1/3 CSR target # Met Average Daily Enrollment 1/3 Target 6 th Grade 14 7 th Grade 13 8 th Grade 99Rating Total36 2 points Implementation Plan: Reduce core subjects at grades 6-8 by 1/3 At least 1/3 of the way in meeting CSR requirement

48 48 Class Size Reduction Monitoring Monitoring at the end of 2008 – 09: Middle School Example: Quality Education Investment Act of 2006 (QEIA) 48 Grades # of Classes required to meet 1/3 CSR target # Met Average Daily Enrollment 1/3 Target At least 1/6 of the way in CSR 6 th Grade th Grade th Grade 97Rating Total36261 point Implementation Plan: Reduce core subjects at grades 6-8 by 1/3

53 53 Class Size Reduction Monitoring Unique Scenarios: The school reduced class size during using High Priority Grant funds. As a result, QEIA CSR targets have resulted in very low QEIA CSR targets. Quality Education Investment Act of 2006 (QEIA) 53

54 54 Class Size Reduction Monitoring Unique Scenarios: The school was reconfigured in the base year and added 6 th grade. As a result, the CSR target for 6 th grade is very low. Quality Education Investment Act of 2006 (QEIA) 54

55 55 Class Size Reduction Monitoring Due to the complexity of CSR requirements it is essential to: Schedule Pre-Monitoring meetings with districts and schools to establish CSR target agreements Provide assistance with interim benchmarks and implementation plan Provide information regarding required end of year documentation Quality Education Investment Act of 2006 (QEIA) 55
