High Schools add FCAT Retake Bonus Points if applicable


Who is included in the school grade calculation

Who is included in the School Grade Calculation?

All eligible students

Eligible = Students

reported in Survey 2 (October FTE) and Survey 3 (February FTE)

with FCAT scores

withFAA score (for overall Learning Gains only)

FAA = Florida Alternate Assessment


Who is included in high standards

Who is included in High Standards?

Standard Curriculum Students

Includes English Language Learners (LY) with more than 2 years in ESOL program

ESE (gifted, hospital/homebound, and speech impaired students only)


What is considered high standards

What is considered High Standards?

* Beginning 2009-10, the writing component of the school grade will be calculated by averaging the percentage of students scoring a 3 and above and the percentage of students scoring a 4 and above.


Who is included in learning gains

Who is included in Learning Gains?

All eligible students with current (2009) and prior (2008) year

FCAT scores

FAA scores

Example:

*FCAT Developmental Scale Score (DSS) or FAA Levels

FAA Proficiency


School grade calculation

Improved FCAT Achievement Levels from one year to the next (i.e., 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5)

Maintained “satisfactory” Achievement Levels from one year to the next (i.e., 3-3, 4-4, 5-5)

Remained within Levels 1 or 2 and demonstrated morethan one year’s growth on the FCAT developmental scale(non-retained students)*

How can students demonstrate annual learning gains?

FCAT

*Retained Level 1 or 2 students must go up a level

What is adequate progress of the lowest 25

What is Adequate Progress of the Lowest 25%?

At least half of Lowest 25% students

(50% in Reading and 50% in Mathematics)

must show Learning Gains.

*Applies to schools with letter grades of A, B, or C .

Students in FAA Program are not included in Lowest 25% calculation.


Calculation of lowest 25 in reading and mathematics

Calculation of Lowest 25% in Reading and Mathematics

Use prior years FCAT Developmental Scale Score (DSS) results of all eligible student

Calculate each student group separately

Add all groups together

ApprovedFY2010 Additional HS Measures

  • In 2009-10 and 2010-11, the graduation rate will be calculated using the NGA 4-year cohort method (GED’s count as non-graduates)

  • Beginning in 2011-12 the graduation rate will be calculated using new federal criteria- GEDs, Special Diplomas, and transfers to Adult Education or DJJ, Drop-outs, Certificate of Completion recipients, and not on-time graduates would be counted as non-graduates

  • End-of-year reporting (Survey 5) is used for reporting each year’s end-of-year status for students (including withdrawals, diploma codes, etc.).

  • A student is included in the cohort when the student is first reported as a high school student.
