District
2020-2021 District Goals

Areas of Focus

1) Our Students (Creating a supportive and inclusive learning environment that provides equitable access, so all students fully participate in their academic and personal success.)

  • Increase the percentage of students meeting or exceeding proficiency benchmarks in English Language Arts (ELA) and math as measured by NWEA-MAP and ACT/ASPIRE 
Assessment Goal
1.2: 3rd grade Reading ( NWEA) * From 62% to 65%
1.3: 5th grade Math (Forward or NWEA)+ * From 76% to 78%
1.6: 8th grade ELA (Forward or NWEA)+ * From 49.8% to 53%
1.5: 8th grade Math (Forward or NWEA)+ * From 42.3% to 47%
1.7: 10 Grade Reading (ASPIRE) * From 52% to 55%
1.8: 11th Grade Math (ACT) From 49.4% to 53%
1.9: 11th Grade ELA (ACT) From 50.6% to 54%

*Data points are based on statewide 2018-2019 data and are generally based on broader grade bands than the individual grade levels represented in our goals.  These are the same goals as last year. The Forward exam was not administered in the 2019-2020 school year due to COVID-19.

+ We will select an alternate assessment (NWEA) if Forward assessment is not administered due to COVID-19.

  • Increase percentage by 3% of students meeting or exceeding proficiency benchmarks in English Language Arts (ELA) and math as measured by NWEA-MAP and ACT/ASPIRE. Increase achievement by 3% in each disaggregated group;
    • Students with disabilities
    • Students with economic disadvantage
    • English language learners
    • Non-white students
