Chapter 12 Improvement Goals Reading

281--IAC 12.8(3)(b)

PUBLIC
The board, with input from its School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC), shall adopt annual improvement goals based on data from at least one districtwide assessment. The goals shall describe desired annual increase in the curriculum areas of, but not limited to, mathematics, reading, and science achievement for all students, for particular subgroups of students, or both. Annual improvement goals may be set for the early intervention programs as described in subrule 12.5(18), other state indicators, locally determined indicators, locally established student learning goals, other curriculum areas, future student employability, or factors influencing student achievement.
  • Annual improvement goals must be measurable.
  • Annual improvement goals must address improvement of student learning, not maintaining of current levels of achievement.

Our goal was to increase the percentage of our 4th grade/8th grade students who are proficient in
reading as they move to the 5th and 9th grades. This was be measured by the Reading
Comprehension score of the ITBS and/or ITEDS. Baseline levels were the state trajectories as per the State of Iowa as per NCLB 82.0% for 5th grade and 84.5% for those in 9th grade. The data showed a for the 4th graders who moved to 5th grade scored at 82.5% down slightly for the 88.5% the previous year, and 87.09% for the 8th graders who moved to the 9th grade was above the state trajectory and an increase from the 2009-2010 score of 83%. Even though the 4th grade scores did surpass the trajectory target score the % of students proficient did not increase.
