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.

Long term goals were developed through the strategic planning process and reviewed and approved by SIAC committee. Goals are as follows (LC5):
1. By 2015, all students will meet or exceed district and state standards in reading, writing, math, science and social studies.
2.  By 2015, all students will develop and consistently demonstrate the 21st century skills and attributes to make a successful transition to further leaning and a meaningful career.
3.  By 2015, 100% of our students will meet or exceed the requirements for graduation.

2010-2011

Current School Year Annual Goals:
281--IAC 12.8(3)(b)(4)
o           Increase the percent of students scoring in the middle and high bands each year on the ITBS/ ITED in reading comprehension while continually increasing the students scoring at or above the 50th percentile by 2010-2011.
o           Increase the percent of students each year who achieve the ACT benchmark for probable success in freshmen college English(2010-76%).
Were the Annual Goals Met?
NO
Supporting Data to demonstrate that the district has or has not met its goal:
While progress was made, not all grades reported improvement. Overall, the percent of students scoring in the bottom two performance levels (weak and marginal) in reading comprehension decreased from the previous year at grades 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8.  An increase in the percent of students scoring in the top two levels (distinguished and accomplished) in reading comprehension, compared to the previous year, was reported at grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.

Cohort group data (tracking relatively same student population from one grade level to the next over time) indicates that students in grades 4, 5, and 7 had increases in the percent of students moving into the top two bands AND a decrease in percent moving into the bottom two bands in reading comprehension during 2010-11, but 8th grade had a decrease in students moving into the bottom two bands during 2010-11.

ACT Benchmark Readiness scores indicate an improvement in students prepared to take freshmen English from the previous year (71 percent to 73 percent, however, this is a decline from 76% reported two years ago.
If the District Did Not Meet its Goal
281--IAC 12.8(3)(b)(4)

The plan to meet future goals includes the following:
The plan for improvement is as follows:

1- Continue to implement the Council Bluffs Literacy Model (CBLM). One feature of this model is a powerful intervention program titled Comprehensive Intervention Model (CIM). We are in the second year of implementing the model at the elementary level and are moving the model into 6th grade this year.

2- Continue to focus on instructional delivery model implementation (gradual release at secondary; workshop at elementary).

3-Refine how teachers work together and collaborate through focused work with principals on how to use protocols to exam student work and discuss significant issues in teaching and learning.

4-Refine secondary coaching model so coaches are building based.

5- Align CB curriculum with Iowa Common Core.

2011-2012

Next School Year Annual Goals:
281--IAC 12.8(3)(b)(4)
Short Term Goal I (Literacy) (LRG1):
Increase the percent of students each year scoring at the proficient and above proficient levels on district measures of reading and writing.

o           Increase the percent of students scoring in the middle and high bands each year on the ITBS/ ITED in reading comprehension while continually increasing the students scoring at or above the 50th percentile by 2011-2012.
o           Increase the percent of students each year who achieve the ACT benchmark for probable success in freshmen college English.
