School Performance Framework Edition

Howard SPF Highlights

The Oakland School Performance Framework (SPF) is a comprehensive, annual review of school performance, which is presented in the form of a report that includes multiple measures. These measures assess how the school educates the Whole Child , compares performance to the prior year to show the Impact of our schools, and highlights priority student groups in order to strive for Equity, all with the goal of preparing students to be College, Career, and Community Ready. It was created as a means to give the district, our schools, and the larger community the information they need to make critical decisions that will have the greatest impact on improving student achievement.

Howard Elementary’s report reflects that we have made improvements in all academic areas (SBAC English Language Arts, SBAC Math, and SRI) resulting in an overall increase from 1.86 to 2.79. By creating a culture of reading and reader we were able to demonstrate an 8 percentage point increase in SRI and a 1 percentage point increase in SBAC English Language Art. By focusing on standards-based math instruction was able to demonstrate a 5 percentage point increase in math. In addition, we demonstrated a decrease in the number of suspensions at our school!
