Index 2: Student Progress

The purpose of this index is to provide a measure of student progress by subject and student group independent of overall student achievement levels. Growth is evaluated by subject and student group. The growth measure is based on a change score that is the difference between the student's current and prior year scores. Students are assigned to one of the three growth categories based on change in scale score in relation to growth expectations: Did Not Meet Growth Expectation, Met Growth Expectation, and Exceeded Growth Expectation.

This year growth includes Reading 3-8, Writing 7, and Grade 8 to Algebra I.

Math 3-8 will be included in 2016.

The index target is 30. The elementary has an index score of 29.

Index 3: Closing the Performance Gap

The elementary will track African American and White students for 2015-2016.

System Safegaurds

Underlying the performance index framework are disaggregated performance results. The disaggregated data will serve as the basis of safeguards for the accountability rating system to ensure that poor performance in one area or one student group is not masked in the performance index. The intent of the safeguards system is to also meet additional federal accountability requirements that are not met in the performance index.
