  1. Designing District/Campus Improvement Plans to Support Student Achievement Education Service Center Region XV Education Service Center Region XV

  2. District Improvement Plan • Each school district shall have a district improvement plan that is developed, evaluated, and revised annually, in accordance with district policy, by the superintendent with the assistance of the district-level committee established under Section 11.251 of the Texas Education Code. • The purpose of the district improvement plan is to guide district and campus staff in the improvement of student performance for all student groups in order to attain state standards in respect to the academic excellence indicators adopted under Section 39.051 of the Texas Education Code. Education Service Center Region XV

  3. Campus Improvement Plan • (c) Each school year, the principal of each school campus, with the assistance of the campus-level committee, shall develop, review, and revise the campus improvement plan for the purpose of improving student performance for all student populations, including students in special education programs under Subchapter A, Chapter 29, with respect to the academic excellence indicators adopted under Section 39.051 and any other appropriate performance measures for special needs populations. Section 11.253 of the Texas Education Code. Education Service Center Region XV

  4. Basic Assumptions About Effective Planning • The basic assumptions regarding effective planning and identified critical components of plans are as follows: • No single best "model" or process for planning exists; but critical components should be addressed. • Local district and campus plans should reflect the unique needs of the populations served and outcomes for all students. Education Service Center Region XV

  5. Basic Assumptions About Effective Planning • The basic assumptions regarding effective planning and identified critical components of plans are as follows: • Campus plans may be different in content and strategies from district plans; however, campus performance objectives and district performance objectives should be complementary and mutually supportive. • Budgets should be developed in coordination with campus plans that include broad-based parameters regarding the allocation of resources. Education Service Center Region XV

  6. Planning is an ongoing process – not an event! • Needs assessments and revisions to plans should occur at least annually. Education Service Center Region XV

  7. Essential to District/Campus Plans are: • Governance Support - the local school board has approved policies outlining the district and campus planning and decision-making processes in accordance with state statute. 2) Board Policy and Local Administrative Procedures • Outlines the election of both district- and campus-based professional staff members to the district and campus planning and decision-making committees • Outlines the selection of the business representative, parents, and other community members at both district and campus levels. Education Service Center Region XV

  8. Students Administration Staff Comprehensive Needs Assessment Parents Curriculum Community Facilities Materials/Resources Education Service Center Region XV

  9. Comprehensive Needs AssessmentRequirement for all Federal Programs • District/Campus Improvement Plans must include provisions for a comprehensive assessment of the measurable performance of each group of students served by the district, including categories of ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sex, and populations served by special programs, including students in special education programs. TEC 11.252(a)(1) It may include: • Quantitative measures of program outcomes • Surveys or group evaluations indicating perceptions of staff, parents, community members, and students • Predicted needs based on projected enrollment, demographic trends, legislative impact, and state and local political and economic events. Education Service Center Region XV

  10. Area to be Assessed/Reviewed Potential Data Source Student Performance by Group All Federal Programs (NCLB) Assessment Data (TAKS/AEIS/Special Ed Assessment/TELPAS/TPRI) Disaggregated data, Failure Rate Special Ed referral percentages Other classroom student data Student Attendance (NCLB) Attendance Records AP/SAT/ACT % AP classes and scoring 3 or 4 on the exam % Taking SAT/ %taking ACT Completion/Drop-out (NCLB) AEIS data( Gaps between At-Risk and not At-Risk) Student counseling and discipline referrals, Retention Rates Drop-out/Completion Rate Highly Qualified Teachers/ Paraprofessionals (NCLB) District Certification Records Professional Development Records Teacher Retention Data New Teacher Mentor Records Professional Development Title II Part A PDAS Teacher Self-Reports Impact on Student Performance ESC XV/District Records Parent Involvement Title I Part A and other Federal Programs (NCLB) Parent Surveys (NCLB) Teacher conference records School Climate Student/Staff/Parent Surveys School Safety/Violence Issues Title IV, Part A (NCLB) Discipline Referrals, PEIMS 425 & Gun Free Schools Records TEA SDFSC Annual Report, School Safety Walk-Through Facilities Student/Staff/Parent/Community Surveys Safety Walk-Through Comprehensive Needs Assessment Student Performance by Group Education Service Center Region XV

  11. Needs Assessment: Analysis of Student Performance Education Service Center Region XV

  12. Areas of Concern Causal Factors Ask Why? Where do we want to be? Ideas to get there… Student Attendance (NCLB) AP/SAT/ACT Drop-out/ Completion (TEC/NCLB) Highly Qualified Teachers (NCLB) Professional Development (NCLB) Parent Involvement (Title Programs) School Climate Safety/Violence Issues (TEC, Title IV) Technology, CATE (Title Programs) Needs Assessment: Analysis of Other Areas Education Service Center Region XV

  13. Comprehensive Needs Assessment:Summary of Findings You may provide a written summary of the findings from the data analysis,i.e. Blank Elementary School has need for improvement in the areas of Math, 3rd grade Reading, 5th grade Science, Classroom Discipline, and Parental Involvement. or choose to use something like the table below. Education Service Center Region XV

  14. State Compensatory Education Program Evaluation/Needs Assessment Education Service Center Region XV

  15. State Compensatory Education The State Compensatory Education program at this district/campus…. Example: The comprehensive, intensive, accelerated instruction program at Blank ISD consists of after school tutorials for students at-risk, two additional math teachers to reduce the student teacher ratio in math, and the purchase and implementation of the Capturing Kids Hearts program to reduce the risk for students dropping out of school. Total SCE funds allotted to this District/Campus______________________________ Total FTEs funded through SCE at this District/Campus________________________ Students are entered into the State Compensatory Education program when_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Students are exited from the State Compensatory Education program when_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Optional for Title I Schoolwide schools: At _________ School State Compensatory Funds are used to support Title I initiatives. Education Service Center Region XV

  16. State Compensatory EducationState of Texas Student Eligibility Criteria A student under 21 years of age and who: • Is in prekindergarten – grade 3 and did not perform satisfactorily on a readiness test/assessment given during the current school year. • Is in grades 7-12 and did not maintain a 70 average in two or more subjects in the foundation curriculum during a semester in the preceding or current school year OR is not maintaining a 70 average in two or more foundation subjects in the current semester. • Was not advanced from one grade to the next for one or more school years • Did not perform satisfactorily on a state assessment instrument, and has not in the previous or current school year performed on that instrument or another appropriate instrument at a level equal to at least 110 percent of the level of satisfactory performance on that instrument • Is pregnant or is a parent • Has been placed in an AEP during the preceding or current school year • Has been expelled during the preceding or current school year • Is currently on parole, probation, deferred prosecution, or other conditional release • Was previously reported through PEIMS to have dropped out of school • Is a student of limited English proficiency • Is in the custody or care of DPRS or has, during the current school year, been referred to DPRS • Is homeless • Resided in the preceding school year or resides in the current school year in a residential placement facility in the district, including a detention facility, substance abuse treatment facility, emergency shelter, psychiatric hospital, halfway house, or foster group home. Education Service Center Region XV

  17. . Federal, State and Local Funding SourcesFederal funding sources that will be integrated and coordinated with State and Local funds to meet the needs of all students: Example Title I Component #10 Education Service Center Region XV

  18. Needs Assessment • Data collection • Analysis Goals & Objectives Summative Evaluation Quality Ongoing Formative Evaluation Strategies & Activities Student Performance Professional Development & Sustained Support • Implementation • Who? • By When? • What do we need? Education Service Center Region XV

  19. Goals • Update GOALS based on state and federal standards. Goals are long range (3-5 years), and are broad statements of expected outcomes that are consistent with the vision and mission of the district. Goals provide direction and focus. There are mandated goals in law at the state and federal levels. Example: By 2010 Blank ISD will have an Exemplary rating for student performance and be on track so that 100% of students meet standard in 2014 (NCLB). Education Service Center Region XV

  20. Goal 1:Example: Blank ISD will have an Exemplary rating by 2010 and be on track for 100% student proficiency by 2014 (NCLB). Objective 1:Example: By May 2006, 80% of all students and each student group, including Special Education students tested, will pass all portions of the state assessment and 80% of the students taking the Alternative Assessment will meet ARD expectations. This Campus/District will meet AYP in every area measured. Summative Evaluation: 80% of all students pass all portions of the state tests, meet ARD expectations, and the Campus/District will meet AYP. Goals: Long range (3-5 years) that reach to the state and federal standards. Plans must have goals for Student Performance, Completion Rate/Drop out/At-risk, Highly Qualified Teachers, Violence Prevention and Intervention (campus) and Parent Involvement (campus). The district/campus may write any additional goals desired. Education Service Center Region XV

  21. Objectives Write OBJECTIVES for the school year that address the needs of all students and all student groups. Objectives are specific, measurable, expected results or outcomes for all student populations served. They target observable behaviors that provide indicators for student performance. District objectives should be logically related to campus performance objectives and provide direction and support for campus improvement initiatives. Example: By May 2006, 80% of all students and all student groups, will meet the standard on TAKS, and 80% of Special Education students taking the Alternative Assessment will meet ARD expectations. Example: By May 2006, 80% of students in special program areas, including LEP, Migrant, G/T, At-Risk, and Special Education will meet the standard on TAKS. Education Service Center Region XV

  22. Goal 1:Example: Blank ISD will have an Exemplary rating by 2010 and be on track for 100% student proficiency by 2014 (NCLB). Objective 1:Example: By May 2006, 80% of all students and each student group, including Special Education students tested, will pass all portions of the state assessment and 80% of the students taking the Alternative Assessment will meet ARD expectations. This Campus/District will meet AYP in every area measured. Summative Evaluation:80% of all students pass all portions of the state tests, meet ARD expectations, and the Campus/District will meet AYP. Objective:Specific, measurable,annual targets. Objectives must address all State and Federal standards that apply. Objectives must address all students and all student groups* for whom improvement is needed, including students in Special Education. Objectives should answer the question: Who will do what, by when, and to what extent? *W, H, AA, ED, Spec Ed, G/T, Title I, Migrant, LEP, Bilingual/ESL, At-Risk, M/F etc. Education Service Center Region XV

  23. Measurable Objectives Examples Performance objectives with measurable objectives • By May 2006, parent involvement and participation is increased by 10% as evidenced in the number of parents participating. • By May 2006, student discipline is decreased by 15% decrease as evidenced by the number of office referrals. • By May 2006, all student groups achieve 75% or higher in each subject tested on TAKS. Education Service Center Region XV

  24. Measurable ObjectivesNon-examples Performance objectives that do not meet measurable requirements • Encourage Parent Involvement • Students will behave better • Increase student achievement Education Service Center Region XV

  25. Needs Assessment • Data collection • Analysis Goals & Objectives Summative Evaluation Quality Strategies & Activities Ongoing Formative Evaluation Student Performance Professional Development & Sustained Support • Implementation • Who? • By When? • What do we need? Education Service Center Region XV

  26. Strategies • Write Strategiesthat address: • the needs of all students and all student groups, including special education • instructional methods for students not achieving their full potential • methods for addressing the needs of students in special programs Criteria to consider for each activity/strategy: • IMPACT on STUDENT IMPROVEMENT • TIME required for implementation • COMMITMENT of those implementing the activity/strategy • Is training needed? • RESOURCES necessary to do it Education Service Center Region XV

  27. Goal 1:Example: Blank ISD will have an Exemplary rating by 2010 and be on track for 100% student proficiency by 2014 (NCLB). Objective 1:Example: By May 2006, 80% of all students and each student group, including Special Education students tested, will pass all portions of the state assessment and 80% of the students taking the Alternative Assessment will meet ARD expectations.

Strategies/Activities Tell how the objective will be accomplished. Write specific action statements describingwhat will be done to improve, and which student groups will benefit. Education Service Center Region XV

  28. State Requirements for Activities/Strategies(TEC) Activities/Strategies must address: • Instructional methods for students not achieving • The needs of students in special programs such as violence prevention, suicide prevention, conflict resolution, or dyslexia treatment programs • Drop out reduction • Integration of technology in instructional programs • Career education • Accelerated education (at-risk, SCE) • Staff development for professional staff • Information to middle/high school parents, counselors, students regarding higher education opportunities, including TEXAS and Teach for Texas grants, admissions and financial aid for higher education, and the need to make informed curriculum choices • Pregnancy related services • Prevention of unwanted physical or verbal aggression, sexual harassment, and other forms of bullying Education Service Center Region XV

  29. Strategies for Special Education (Optional for CIP) • 1. Timeline for initial evaluation • 2. Least Restrictive Environment • 3. Related Services • 4. Timeline for Reevaluation • 5. Transition Services Education Service Center Region XV

  30. Goal 1:Example: Blank ISD will have an Exemplary rating by 2010 and be on track for 100% student proficiency by 2014 (NCLB). Objective 1:Example: By May 2006, 80% of all students and each student group, including Special Education students tested, will pass all portions of the state assessment and 80% of the students taking the Alternative Assessment will meet ARD expectations. This Campus/District will meet AYP in every area measured. Summative Evaluation:80% of all students pass all portions of the state tests, meet ARD expectations, and the Campus/District will meet AYP. Title I Schoolwide Campus: Identify one or more of the 10 schoolwide components for activities that apply Education Service Center Region XV

  31. Required Title I SchoolwideCampus Plan Components • Comprehensive Needs Assessment of the entire school (including all program areas) • Reform strategies that address the needs of all children in the school, but particularly the needs of children of target populations of any program that is included in the schoolwide program and that use effective methods and instructional strategies based on scientifically based research. • Instruction by highly qualified teachers (Show appropriate staff development to meet the needs of students at-risk in the D/CIP) • Professional development for teachers and aides, and where appropriate, pupil services personnel, parents, principals, and other staff who work for the student improvement • Strategies to attract high-quality highly qualified teachers to high-need schools • Strategies to increase parental involvement Education Service Center Region XV

  32. Required Title I Schoolwide Campus Plan Components 7. Plans for assisting preschool children in the transition from early childhood programs, such as Head Start and Even Start, to local elementary school programs. (Examples could include: provide parents and students with a kindergarten orientation session; teachers from pre-K/K meet to discuss instructional programs, kindergarten Objectives, and needs of students, etc.) 8. Steps to include teachers in the decisions regarding the use of assessments. (In the formative evaluation column of the CIP show that teachers use benchmarks to analyze performance, use classroom observations and teacher-made tests to assess students) 9. Activities to ensure that students who experience difficulty mastering any of the state standards during the school year will be provided with effective, timely additional assistance. 10. Coordination and integration of Federal, State, and local services and programs, such as violence prevention programs, nutrition programs, housing programs, Head Start, adult education, vocational and technical education, and job training Education Service Center Region XV

Education Service Center Region XV

  34. Implementation Identifystaff responsible • Use positions of those who will implement the activity Set timelinesfor ongoing monitoring of strategies throughout a grading period or instructional period. Incremental progress reviews should be scheduled for discussion by the Committee. Education Service Center Region XV

  35. Goal 1:Example: Blank ISD will have an Exemplary rating by 2010 and be on track for 100% student proficiency by 2014 (NCLB). Objective 1:Example: By May 2006, 80% of all students and each student group, including Special Education students tested, will pass all portions of the state assessment and 80% of the students taking the Alternative Assessment will meet ARD expectations. This Campus/District will meet AYP in every area measured. Summative Evaluation:80% of all students pass all portions of the state tests, meet ARD expectations, and the Campus/District will meet AYP. Monitoring checkpoints should be clearly set. “August to May,” “as needed” and “Ongoing” are not acceptable. Identify the month(s) when the strategy will be monitored. This area should name the position of those who will implement the strategy. Education Service Center Region XV

  36. Resources • Identify the resourcesneeded to implement the plan • People • Space • Materials • Equipment • Funding Sources Education Service Center Region XV

  37. Goal 1:Example: Blank ISD will have an Exemplary rating by 2010 and be on track for 100% student proficiency by 2014 (NCLB). Objective 1:Example: By May 2006, 80% of all students and each student group, including Special Education students tested, will pass all portions of the state assessment and 80% of the students taking the Alternative Assessment will meet ARD expectations. This Campus/District will meet AYP in every area measured. Summative Evaluation:80% of all students pass all portions of the state tests, meet ARD expectations, and the Campus/District will meet AYP. Resources are those things that are necessary to accomplish the strategy/activity. They could be • materials, • People, such as the Librarian or ESC XV, • funding sources such as SCE, Title I, Title II A, Grants, Shared Services Arrangements, etc. Education Service Center Region XV

Education Service Center Region XV

  39. Formative Evaluation What is formative evaluation? Periodicallyevaluatingthe steps involved would be an example of formative evaluation. How will you know before the end of the year whether or not the strategy/activity is having the desired effect on students? Examples would be, check lesson plans weekly, evaluate student projects at the end of each six weeks, examine attendance records, check on the passing rates of students each six weeks, etc. Education Service Center Region XV

  40. Goal 1:Example: Blank ISD will have an Exemplary rating by 2010 and be on track for 100% student proficiency by 2014 (NCLB). Objective 1:Example: By May 2006, 80% of all students and each student group, including Special Education students tested, will pass all portions of the state assessment and 80% of the students taking the Alternative Assessment will meet ARD expectations. This Campus/District will meet AYP in every area measured. Summative Evaluation:80% of all students pass all portions of the state tests, meet ARD expectations, and the Campus/District will meet AYP. Formative Evaluation is directly related to the Strategy. It answers the questions: “How will we know this strategy is successful before May? What will we be able to see that will indicate that this strategy is working?” Education Service Center Region XV

  41. Summative Evaluation What is summative evaluation? Evaluating how one got to from point A to point B and analyzing the outcome would be an example of summative evaluation. The measures summarize the cumulative results for the year. Were the desired performance objectives met? Examples are using summaries of annual performance reports, summaries of parent surveys, summaries of staff development evaluations, pass/failure rates, attendance/drop summary reports, etc. Education Service Center Region XV

  42. Goal 1:Example: Blank ISD will have an Exemplary rating by 2010 and be on track for 100% student proficiency by 2014 (NCLB). Objective 1:Example: By May 2006, 80% of all students and each student group, including Special Education students tested, will pass all portions of the state assessment and 80% of the students taking the Alternative Assessment will meet ARD expectations. This Campus/District will meet AYP in every area measured. Summative Evaluation:80% of all students pass all portions of the state tests, meet ARD expectations, and the Campus/District will meet AYP. Summative Evaluation answers the question: Did we meet our objective? These are the final results at the end of the year. It is critical to evaluate all programs and student groups, but especially Federal Program areas for which the district and campus receive funds. Education Service Center Region XV

  44. State Compensatory Education • Law requires the D/CIP; it is the primary record supporting expenditures attributed to the SCE program. Education Service Center Region XV

  45. State Compensatory EducationDistrict Policies and Procedures Districts, including charter schools receiving SCE funding, are required to have written policies & procedures to identify: • students who are at risk of dropping out of school • students who are at risk of dropping out of school under local criteria and documentation of compliance with the 10% cap • how students are entered into the SCE program; • how students are exited from the SCE program; • the methodologies involving calculation of 110% satisfactory performance on all assessment instruments; and • the cost of the regular education program in relation to budget allocations per student and/or instructional staff per student ratio. (Module 9, Section 9.2.3) Education Service Center Region XV

  46. Purpose of the SCE Program • Compensatory education is defined in law as programs and/or services designed to supplement the regular education program for students identified as at risk of dropping out of school. The purpose is to increase the academic achievement and reduce the drop out rate of these students. §42.152, TEC Education Service Center Region XV

  47. District/Campus Improvement Plan §11.253 of the Texas Education Code The district and/or campus improvement plan must include the following: Total amount of SCE funds allocated for resources & staff (Please include this information in dist. & each plan) Comprehensive needs assessment Identified strategies Supplemental financial resources for SCE Supplemental FTEs for SCE Measurable Performance Objectives Timelines for monitoring strategies Formative and summative evaluation criteria Education Service Center Region XV

  48. Campus Improvement Plan §11.253 of the Texas Education Code The district and/or campus improvement plan must include the following: • Total amount of SCE funds allocated for resources & staff • SCE must indicate the actual dollar amounts for activities and SCE dollars that show 85% of the entitlement • DIP shows cumulative summary of program and entire budget • CIPs show specific campus activities and campus budget Education Service Center Region XV

  49. Campus Improvement Plan §11.253 of the Texas Education Code The district and/or campus improvement plan must include the following: • Supplemental financial resources for SCE • State Compensatory Ed. must indicate the actual dollar amounts for activities/strategies. • Supplemental FTEs for SCE • FTEs must be shown for SCE activities involvingpersonnel at both the district and campus level. • Measurable Performance Objectives • Measurable student performanceobjectivesbased on the needs assessment data.
