Exceed state pass rates for all EOC exams each semester.
With the EOC waiver in place, there was less emphasis on the End of Course exam than there will be in years to come. Still, the resources available through USA Test Prep and Shmoop were enough to ease the mind of the students who were still required to test in their face-to-face school.
Increase AP pass rates (three or higher) so that each GAVS AP test pass rate exceeds state and national rates.
In the face-to-face classroom, I taught AP English Language and Composition for five years, so I feel very comfortable working with students to improve their performance in AP courses. I know first-hand that writing is such an important component in all AP courses, and I am confident that my emphasis in writing will serve my students well as they move on the AP courses. Most of my remediation opportunities were writing assignments that required students to think critically and respond with textual evidence to support their claims. Certainly this type of mental exercise is good practice for any AP course.
Goal # 3
100% of teachers show evidence of utilizing data analysis tools in order to improve student achievement.
The data available in SLDS gave me a sneak peek into my students' past, and it helped me to be more aware of clear strengths as well as potential areas of weakness. I was particularly thankful to have found the attendance information because it showed that the students in my Spring course had significantly more absences then their peers statewide. This information encouraged me to be more vigilant with viewing log on history and reaching out to students who hadn't logged on in a few days. Without the SLDS information, I'm not sure that I would have been so attentive to online attendance.
