AUSD Mathematics Summit Presentation to the Board of Education November 25, 2008
Math Summit Purpose and Outcomes Purpose: To understand where we are and begin to determine where we are going Outcome: To determine next steps to increase student achievement in mathematics
Who participated? 15 grade Four – Algebra teachers 5 math coaches, ACOE support, AEA 6 site administrators 4 district administrators
State policy on Algebra Update Algebra legislation: All 8 th graders in Algebra (now being challenged) CDE Algebra Summit CDE Algebra Success Initiative Guiding Document: Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools
AUSD Mathematics Status District Lens Curriculum Development Professional Development Student Achievement Data Circles
District analysis of math student achievement data STAR: District overall math Annual Yearly Progress (AYP) is high with 63% proficient or advanced Math AYP stayed flat 2006-08 AUSD missed the math Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) for some groups: African American, Students with disabilities
District analysis of math student achievement data Next years AMO target is 45.5% proficiency; our African American, American Indian, Latino, Pacific Islanders, & Students with disabilities will need to make big gains Math CSTs declined in % proficient, grades 6-11 Math CSTs reiterate achievement gap between our lowest and highest performing groups
Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) used to develop issues to be addressed Content Enhancement Routine FRAME
prioritizing math success by articulating across grade levels and collaborating on instructional practice to ensure equitable achievement for all students.
EquityInstructional Practices CurriculumCollaboration/ Articulation Professional Development Mathematics Summit is about… prioritizing math success by articulating across grade levels and collaborating on instructional practice to ensure equitable achievement for all students.
EquityInstructional Practices CurriculumCollaboration/Arti culation Professional Development Focus on race facilitated by outside experts Pedagogical Practices Standards guide/drive instruction Horizontal AND verticalAUSD vision for PD: Prepare all students for Algebra I by 8 th grade & continue studying higher level mathematics for college admission & career preparation. Specific PD on how to provide best instructional strategies for Latino/AA students Content specific practices Tools: textbooks, technology, & manipulatives Supported collaboration timeFocus on teacher math content and knowledge supporting the vision High expectations for all: rigor, culturally responsive pedagogy (need to be defined for all students Student engagement/making connections Articulation 12-K of critical content Articulated PD to support collaborative process including 1) standards & content 2) teacher agreement support Develop long term plan for PD with an annual process Diversity in hiring especially teaching staff Informed by effective use of assessment data Assessment including placement/short cycle Develop/implement data collection/use to effectively inform practice and collaboration NEEDS PD Integrate content knowledge & instructional strategies and best practices within courses & grades Intervention for all focused especially on AA and Latino students w/ class size & access, equitable resources Time allocation and pacing by key standards CalibrationDevelop & implement data collection/use to effectively inform practice and collaboration (NEEDS PD) Mathematics Summit is about… prioritizing math success by articulating across grade levels and collaborating on instructional practice to ensure equitable achievement for all students.
Vision and Action Planning Passion and interest to improve student achievement results Use the math summit group as a leadership committee for feedback Utilize a subcommittee from the group to develop a sustainable long term plan from the identified areas Spring Math Summit II Report on progress to the BOE in the spring
District Goal #1: Narrow & close the achievement gap in ELA & Math between our lowest & highest performing groups Prepare all students for Algebra 1 by 8 th grade and continue studying higher level mathematics for college admission and career preparation
