2 District Accountability Update May 2006 - February 2007

3 District Accountability Results  Districts provided three sets of accountability results  District Performance Score (DPS) – calculated in same manner as a School Performance Score  District Responsibility Indicators – three separate indicators  District Subgroup Component – used to determine if the district’s subgroups made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Bulletin 111, Chapter 43

4 District Performance Scores Bulletin 111, Section 4317 ♦Calculated in the same manner as School Performance Scores ♦Do not include assessment results for students displaced by the hurricanes ♦Include one year of assessment data (2005-06) and one year of attendance and dropout data (2004-05)

5 District Performance Score Labels Performance LabelDPS Five Stars140 and above Four Stars139.9-120.0 Three Stars119.9-100.0 Two Stars99.9-80.0 One Star79.9-60.0 Academically Unacceptable Below 60.0 Bulletin 111, Section 4311

6 District Responsibility Indicators  For the 2006 District Accountability results, the District Responsibility Index (DRI) and the labels associated with it have been eliminated  Three separate District Responsibility Indicators have been added Teacher Certification Indicator 8 th Grade Persistence Indicator Financial Risk Indicator Bulletin 111, Sections 4301

7 Teacher Certification Indicator  Based on the percentage of state core classes taught by three categories of teachers Standard Teaching Certificate for area of assignment Non-Standard Teaching Certificate – Out of Field or Temporary Authority (OFAT, TAT, TEP) No Authority to Teach (No Certification) Bulletin 111, Section 4302

8 Teacher Certification Indicator  Two Indices calculated Low Performing schools (1 Star or Academically Unacceptable) Not Low Performing (2 Stars or above) Bulletin 111, Sections 4302

9 Teacher Certification Indicator  Percentages of state core classes taught by teachers in each category weighted and converted to point using the following weighting factors: 1.0 times % of classes taught by teachers with Standard Certificates 0.5 times % of classes taught by teachers with Non-Standard Certificates 0.0 times % of classes taught by teachers with No Authority to Teach Bulletin 111, Sections 4302

10 Teacher Certification Indicator  Weighted points are summed for Low Performing schools and again for Non-Low Performing schools  Total points for Low Performing schools are weighted by 75%  Total points for Non-Low Performing schools are weighted by 25%  Indicator value is the sum of the weighted total points for Low and Non-Low Performing schools Bulletin 111, Sections 4302

11 Teacher Certification Indicator LabelValue Exceptional100 – 97.0 Adequate96.9 – 94.0 Marginal93.9 – 90.0 UnacceptableLess than 90.0 Bulletin 111, Section 4302

12 8 th Grade Persistence Indicator  Based upon a district’s success in keeping 8 th grade students enrolled (not drop out)  Uses two years of data (2006 results are based on data from the years 2003-04 and 2004-05) Bulletin 111, Sections 4302

13 8 th Grade Persistence Indicator  Enrolled Count – students who were enrolled in the district at least one full day during an academic year, less those students who left for legitimate reasons  Returned Count – prior year enrolled students who are also enrolled at least one full day of the next academic year Bulletin 111, Sections 4302

14 8 th Grade Persistence Indicator  Sum enrolled counts from the two years  Sum returned counts from the two years  Divide the total returned counts by the total enrolled counts Bulletin 111, Sections 4302

15 8 th Grade Persistence Indicator LabelValue Exceptional100 – 99.0 Adequate98.9 – 98.0 Marginal97.9 – 97.0 UnacceptableLess than 97.0 Bulletin 111, Section 4302

16 Financial Risk Indicator  Created by Education Finance in 2004- 05 to quantify a district’s financial risk  Currently being revised by BESE  Will be used in subsequent years once revisions are complete Bulletin 111, Sections 4302

17 District Subgroup Component AYP  For the Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) percent proficiency analysis, ELA and math assessments from grades 3-8 and 10 are included  For the “Safe Harbor” percent proficiency improvement comparison, only 4 th, 8 th and 10 th grade ELA and math results are used Bulletin 111, Section 4310

18 District Subgroup Component AYP  Students displaced by the hurricane were placed in a separate subgroup and removed from all other subgroups  The Displaced Students subgroup were only evaluated on their Participation If the Displaced Students subgroup failed the Participation evaluation for a particular grade cluster, the district failed Subgroup Component AYP Bulletin 111, Section 4310

19 District Consequences  Since DRI labels have been eliminated from District Accountability, d istrict consequences only apply to failure to achieve Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in the Subgroup Component for all three Grade-Clusters in the same subject, Bulletin 111, Section 4313

20 Districts Exiting District Improvement  Districts exit District Improvement if they pass the Subgroup Component AYP in the same subject for which they entered District Improvement in the same cluster for 2 consecutive years. Bulletin 111, Sections 4313

21 Districts Exiting District Improvement  Example: District fails Subgroup Component AYP in ELA for all three grade clusters two consecutive years and is placed in District Improvement District then passes the Elementary Cluster for ELA for two consecutive years District is no longer in District Improvement Bulletin 111, Sections 4313

22 District Academically in Crisis  District is labeled Academically in Crisis if More than 30 schools in the district are Academically Unacceptable OR More than 50% of the district’s enrollment attends Academically Unacceptable schools Bulletin 111, Sections 4901

23 District Accountability Hurricane Considerations  Districts are considered “Severe Impact” districts and receive a one-year waiver from accountability labels and decisions if, due to a disaster: Closed for 18 or more consecutive school days Gained or lost 25% of testing population before Oct. 1 Have 25% or more of their schools granted a one-year waiver or classified as new schools Bulletin 111, Section 4503
