2019-20 District Goals

  • Goal 1: Challenge and Support All Students


    Goal 1: Measure of Success

    1. The Board understands that our students are more than just a number on a test. Yet it also recognizes the importance of our core academic program and the evaluative measures on the school, state and federal level. Therefore, the Board and administration will consider achievement of this goal as measured by multiple criteria including:
      • Analyzing Keystone Exams, SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test), PSSA (Pennsylvania System of School Assessment), NWEA MAP (Northwest Evaluation Association – Measures of Academic Progress), and SPP (School Performance Profile)/ FRI (Future Ready PA Index) to determine any statistically significant changes.
      • Analyzing Equity and Excellence percentages (from College Board) to determine any statistically significant changes.
      • Using PVAAS (Pennsylvania Value Added Assessment System) growth measures and SLO (Standard Learning Objectives) data to inform instruction and make programmatic changes to address student needs.
      • In addition, achievement of this district goal will also be considered holistically by reviewing and discussing student achievement and growth through qualitative and anecdotal data including non-standardized testing measures.
    2. Action Plans will have been implemented during the 2018-19 school year.
    3. For 2019-2020, each building will identify data to inform the creation of action plans and measures of their success. Action plans should focus on aspects of teaching and learning that go deeper and improve what we already do.
