HELP HELP HELP . ALL RIGHT AND NEXT WE HAVE THE NASHVILLE URBAN DEBATE LEAGUE — RECOGNITION OF MS WALKER. SO I’M SO EXCITED — TO RECOGNIZE TODAY THE NATIONAL URBAN DEBATE LEAGUES WHO WERE PART OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF URBAN DEBATE LEAGUES. AND THEIR MISSION IS TO BRING POLICY DEBATE PROGRAMS INTO METRO SCHOOLS AND THERE THEY BEGAN AS A PILOT PROGRAM IN TWO MEN PIA SCHOOLS IN TWENTY TEN AND NOW — NINE YEARS LATER IN TWELVE SCHOOLS TWELVE HIGH SCHOOLS ACROSS THE DISTRICT AND THEY IDENTIFY AND TRAIN THEM IN PS TEACHERS TO SERVICE DEBATE COACHES AND COMPETE MONTHLY — AT TOURNAMENTS HELD AT HILL WHAT HIGH SCHOOL. AND I’M — I I’M REALLY THE REASON THAT I WANTED TO HAVE THEM RECOGNIZED EYES BECAUSE THESE ARE THE KIND OF PROGRAMS I BELIEVE MAKE A TREMENDOUS DIFFERENCE IN. THE LIVES OF OUR STUDENTS THAT THEY PREPARE THEM FOR WITH RIGOROUS — THOUGHTFUL PRACTICE AND DEBATE FOR POST SECONDARY AND WE HAVE AMAZING TEACHERS AND AND ADVOCATES THAT ARE HERE TONIGHT — AND STUDENTS OF COURSE WHO CAN SHARE THEIR STORY SO I WANT TO INTRODUCE DOCTOR LIKE SOMEONE HAS CLARK A FORMER COLLEGE DEBATER AND THE CHAIR OF THE NATIONAL URBAN DEBATE LEAGUE AND SHE’S GOING TO GIVE US AN UPDATE ON THEIR SEASON. THE JUST COMPLETED. THANK YOU FOR HAVING US TODAY — I’D LIKE TO BEGIN BY TELLING YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT POLICY DEBAT. UP POLICY DEBATE IS A RIGOROUS COMPETITIVE ACTIVITY THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF PAGES OF RESEARCH DEBATERS MUST DO ON EACH TOPIC. THEY GET TO KNOW THIS EVIDENCE FORWARDS AND BACKWARDS AS THE DEBATE DEBATERS FROM OTHER SCHOOLS IN THE DISTRICT. THEY DON’T GET TO CHOOSE THE TOPIC. OR WHICH SIDE OF THE DEBATE TO BE ON EITHER WHICH MEANS THEY HAVE TO BE WELL VERSED ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ARGUMENT. EACH DEBATE CAN LAST UP TO TWO HOURS. YOU TODAY WITH A PARTNER AND EACH DEBATER. WILL GIVE TWO SPEECHES DURING THAT TIME. IN BETWEEN THERE’S ALSO A CROSS EXAMINATION PERIOD WHERE YOUR OPPONENT HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO GRILL YOU ON THE CASE YOU HAVE JUST PRESENTED. A COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER WATCHES AROUND AND DECIDES WINNER. DEBATERS QUICKLY LEARNED THAT IN ORDER TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN POLICY DEBATE YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO WORK HARDER THAN ANYONE ELSE. AS A DEBATER YOU STAY UP ON THE LATEST NEWS YOU READ FRENCH GERMAN AND MODERN PHILOSOPHY AND YOUR RESEARCH EVERYTHING DOWN TO ITS LOWEST POSSIBLE DENOMINATOR. IT IS HARD TO CONVEY THE AMOUNT OF WORK THAT IS REQUIRED TO DO THIS ACTIVITY. BUT SOME HAVE ARGUED THAT PARTICIPATING IN ONE YEAR OF POLICY DEBATE. IT’S LIKE COMPLETING A MASTER’S THESIS DEFENSE. WE KNOW THAT DEBATE CHANGES LIVES. AND THE DATA IS CLEAR THAT FOR EVERY YEAR A STUDENT DEBATES HIS OR HER GRADES WILL IMPROVE. THE MORE LIKELY THEY ARE TO TEST IS COLLEGE READY AND THE MORE LIKELY THEY ARE TO CONSIDER COLLEGE. ONE OF THE FASTEST WAY. OUR DEBATERS TO DEVELOP THESE SKILLS IS BY ATTENDING INTENSIVE DEBATE TRAINING OVER THE SUMMER. LAST YEAR WE WERE ABLE TO SEND STUDENTS WITH FULL SCHOLARSHIPS TO ATTEND DEBATE CAMPS AT VANDERBILT THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN. EMORY UNIVERSITY AND HARVARD. AT THIS TIME I’D LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO ONE OF OUR FABULOUS DEBATERS. A REAM WALLS A JUNIOR AT HOLLYWOOD HIGH SCHOOL WHO WILL SHARE A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE AT THE HARBOR DEBATE CAMP THIS SUMMER. OKAY SO MY NAME IS ROOM ALL DAY- AS SHE EXPLAINED I AM FROM HILL IT AND THIS IS MY THIRD YEAR — DEBATING SO I CAN OFFICIALLY SAY THAT DEBATING DOES NOT GET EASIER WITH TIME — SO THE CHALLENGE IS JUST KEEP COMING AND I’M READY TO FACE THEM. AND SOMETIMES THAT DOESN’T MEAN& THAT I WON THAT ROUND OR I GET THE MOST SPEAKER POINTS IT JUST MEANS THAT I LEARN SOMETHING NE. BECAUSE OF DEBATE I AM ABLE TO UNDERSTAND COMPLEX POLICY ISSUES AND THINK CRITICALLY TO DEVELOP A SOLUTION. THESE THE THIS YEAR’S TOPIC OF IMMIGRATION REFORM CAN BE SOMETHING PEOPLE AVOID TALKING ABOUT THE POLICY DEBATE CREATES A SAFE ENVIRONMENT TO EXCHANGE IDEAS. BECAUSE OF THE DEBATE I KNOW I CAN OVERCOME ANY ACADEMIC CHALLENGE. DEBATE TAKES TIME IT TAKES DISCIPLINE AND LOTS OF WORK. I’M ABLE TO FOCUS BETTER ON MY SCHOOL WORK AND THE DEBATE DIRECTLY IMPACT THE QUALITY OF WORK INSIDE OF MY CLASSROOM AS WELL AS OUTSIDE. I ALL OF THE DEBATE SKILLS THAT I’VE LEARNED OVER THESE PAST THREE YEARS I HAVE IMPLEMENTED INTO ALL TWELVE OF MAY AP CLASSES. SO JUST TO GET TO KNOW ME A LITTLE BIT BETTER — I WAS ONE OF THOSE KIDS THAT FROM A YOUNG AGE I KNEW WHAT THEY WANTED TO DO RIGHT SO THERE WERE TWO THINGS ON MY TO DO LIST IN FIRST GRADE. GO TO HARVARD. TAKE OVER WASHINGTON [inaudible] OKAY. THE WORD OF THIS IS DOESN’T EVEN COME CLOSE TO FIRST GRADE ME AND I CARRY THAT WITH ME EVERY DAY. SO WHEN YOU REALLY THINK ABOUT IT I ACCOMPLISHED ONE OF THEM. LAST SUMMER THERE TODAY I WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE INTO THE FUTURE THAT I’VE ALWAYS WANTED FOR MYSELF. I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF ATTENDING HARVARD UNIVERSITY’S DEBATE SUMMER WORKSHOP. THIS IS ACTUALLY GOING TO BE MY FIRST TRIP WITHOUT MY PARENTS OR FRIENDS OR FAMILY. AND LUCKILY I HAD A SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER. DO YOU OCCUR — TO ACCOMPANY ME AT THE BEGINNING OF MY JOURNEY DO YOU NOT ONLY TRAVELED WITH ME BUT I ACTUALLY STAYED TO SHOW ME AROUND HARVARD TO GET YOU SETTLED INTO MY DORM ROOM. TO TAKE LOADS OF PICTURES TO SEND BACK TO MY FAMILY — AND FOR ALMOST A MONTH I LIVED ON THE CAMPUS WENT TO THE CLASSES MET NEW FRIENDS ACROSS THE NATION AND EXPLORE THE CITY OF CAMBRIDGE. I COULDN’T POSSIBLY BEGIN TO EXPLAIN THE MAGNITUDE THIS IS HOT AND THE IMPACT THIS OUT ON MY LIFE AND I WISH THERE WERE BETTER WORDS BUT ALL I CAN THINK OF IS THANK YOU. I WOULD ENCOURAGE ANY MMTS STUDENT INTERESTED TO JOIN THEIR DEBATE TEAM AT THEIR HIGH SCHOOL IT’S A DECISION I CAN GUARANTEE. WILL MONUMENTALLY AFFECT THEIR ACADEMIC CAREERS. THANK YOU THANK YOU.

THE THING IS HERE SO. YOU YOU FEEL LIKE YOU CAN CO EXIST — CAN PLAY NICELY WITH ALL THOSE DIFFERENT APARTMENTS IN THERE AS WELL AS ALL THE STUDENTS THAT ARE IN SCHOOL I MEAN THAT’S SOMETHING THAT I THOUGHT ABOUT — WHEN I WAS READING THE CONTRACT THIS MORNING? I FEEL THAT WE CAN — WE WORK EXTENSIVELY WITH CHARLIE ON THE LAY OUT WE’VE GONE THROUGH TWO OR THREE GENERATIONS TRYING TO SEQUESTER — STAFF FROM HIS STUDENTS — AND AND THAT SORT OF INTERACTION IS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND I THINK IT’S I THINK IT’S WORKABLE. CHARLIE IS A GREEN AS WELL. YEAH I THINK JUST THANK YOU FOR THE QUESTION — I WOULD SAY BRIEFLY WORKING WITH DAVID AND HIS TEAM HAS BEEN. NOTHING BUT A PLEASURE AND IT’S REALLY CLEAR THAT THEY’VE GONE INTO THE PROCESS. THINKING ABOUT WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO ARRANGE THE SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THE BUILDING AND ORGANIZE THE BUILDING SO THAT THEIR TEAM IS ABLE TO GET TO WORK. THAT THEY NEED TO GET DONE DONE AND SO THAT. OUR STUDENTS CAN USE THE BUILDING IN A WAY THAT BOTH MAXIMIZES THE USE OF IT WITHOUT- INTERFERING WITH THE OFFICES THERE — AND I REALLY CAN’T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT HOW THOUGHTFUL AND STRATEGIC THEY’VE BEEN — TAKING INPUT INTO THE WAY IT’S SET UP. RIGHT NOW IS BASICALLY THERE ARE DESIGNATED STAIRWELLS AND DESIGNATED ENTRANCES EXITS — AND ACTUALLY AN ENTIRE FLOOR WOULD BE RESERVED FOR THE OFFICES — INTO WORKS OUT REALLY NICELY. HOW MUCH? MONEY ARE WE CHARGING THEM FOR THE POLICE. IT’S A PRO RATED OVER THE FIRST THREE YEARS THEY WILL BE UTILIZING ALL OF THE SPACE BUT BECAUSE IT’S GOING TO BE RESERVED FOR THEM — WE’VE SORT OF STIR STEP THEM INTO THEIR RATE INCREASES AND THERE’S A 3%. INCREASE PER YEAR ON TOP OF ALL THAT WERE STARTING OUT AT SIX FIFTY A SQUARE FOOT AND IT MOVES UP. TO THINK THE FOURTH YEARS NINE DOLLARS A SQUARE FOOT TO THE FULL LEASE AMOUNT AT THAT POINT IN TIME AND THEN THERE AFTER. IT ESCALATES 3% EVERY YEAR. WHAT WOULD BE THE TOTAL NEARLY THAT WE WOULD GET IT’S — IT’S IN THE LEAST ARGUMENT I WANT TO SAY IT STARTS OUT AT TWO HUNDRED AND YEAH I THINK OVER AT THE ONE WHO’S GONNA END UP SIGNING THE CHECKS RIGHT — I THINK OVER THE FOUR YEARS IT’S ABOUT TWO MILLION DOLLARS. RIGHT I HAVE A MOTION PLEASE I MOVED I MOVE THAT WE ACCEPT THE CONTRACT OR THE LEASE AGREEMENT BETWEEN NATIONAL CLASSICAL CHARTER SCHOOL TO MOVE TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL THE BAILEY MIDDLE SCHOOL BUILDING.

ALL RIGHT THANKS GUYS THANK YOU CAN. CAN I DON’T KNOW. DIRECTED YOU FROM. ALL RIGHT THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR AND VICE CHAIR BOARD MEMBERS — FOR GIVE ME AN OPPORTUNITY — TO SPEAK TONIGHT — THE FIRST HELLO TO EVERYONE IS DEFINITELY A GREAT HONOR TO BE SITTING BEFORE YOU THIS EVENING — A YEAR AGO I CERTAINLY DIDN’T EXPECT TO BE SITTING HERE FRONT OF YOU SHARE MY VISION FOR MAJOR NATIONAL PUBLIC SCHOOLS. THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY AND IT IS EVEN A GREATER RESPONSIBILITY. YOU AND I SHARE A CALLING THERE IS NO MORE MEANINGFUL MORE REWARDING WORK IN THIS CITY. I’M FROM NASHVILLE I WAS BORN HERE RAISED HERE AND PURSUED A CAREER IN EDUCATION HERE. I KNOW MIPS AS A STUDENT AS A TEACHER AND AS AN ADMINISTRATOR. FOR FOURTEEN YEARS I’VE BEEN DEDICATED TO THE SUCCESS OF OUR DISTRICT INTO THE OPPORTUNITY TO IMPACT THE CITY I LOVE. I BELIEVE IN ANY PS AND I BELIEVE IN NASHVILLE. THEY BELIEVE IS A POWERFUL THING I WOULDN’T BE HERE TALKING TO YOU TODAY WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF MY FAMILY MY MENTORS AND MY TEACHERS AND METRO. ALL OF THEM BELIEVED IN ME. SO ‘M ASKING YOU. TO BELIEVE. BELIEVE IN OUR STUDENTS THEY CAN ACHIEVE GREAT THINGS. DURING OUR MIPS PROPOSED BUDGET TO THE MAYOR LAST WEEK YOU HEARD ME SHARE THAT OUR GOAL HERE IS ENEMY PS THE SAMPLE. WE NEED MORE PREPARE GRADUATES. THE CITY NEEDS MORE PREPARE GRADUATES. ANNETTE NATIONAL ECONOMY IS BOOMING OUR YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE THE PROMISE OF REAL CAREERS AND MEANINGFUL WORK. THE BIGGEST RESPONSIBILITY WE HAVE IN ANY PS IS TO PREPARE THEM. WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THEY’RE READY. TO THAT END THERE’S NO TIME TO WASTE. MLPS MUST CONTINUE TO MOVE FORWARD. AND I’M ON IT WITH OUR STRATEGIC PLAN AND IN THE SERVICE OF THE MISSION NAMELY THAT OUR STUDENTS GRADUATE FROM MIPS WITH WHAT THEY NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE. TO GET THERE THEY NEED OUR HELP. I WANT TO SPEND THE NEXT FEW MOMENTS TALKING ABOUT THAT. THERE ARE THREE THINGS WE MUST DO. IF WE ARE TO THE FEEL OUR MISSION TO MEET THE CHALLENGES WE FACE AS A LARGE AND DIVERSE URBAN SCHOOL DISTRICT. FIRST WE MUST REMEMBER THAT OUR STUDENTS ARE THE TOP PRIORITY. THEY ARE AT THE CORE OF WHAT WE DO AND WHILE WE DO IT. WE SERVE APPROXIMATELY EIGHTY SIX THOUSAND STUDENTS. THIS ISN’T ABOUT YOU OR ME. IT’S ABOUT THEM. EVERYTHING WE DO MUST BENEFIT THEM IN THEIR PURSUIT OF A DIPLOMA. THAT BEGINS AS EARLY AS PRE K. AND KINDERGARTEN. I RECOGNIZE THIS IS MISSTATEMENTS HOUSE BEFORE. BUT I THINK IT NEEDS TO BE SAID AGAIN. BECAUSE IF WE ARE TRUE TO THAT MINDSET WITH STUDENT OUTCOMES AS OUR LITTLE STAR. I THINK WE’LL BE ABLE TO ENGAGE IN EFFECTIVE DISCOURSE AND COLLABORATE MORE. SECONDLY I BELIEVE IN HIGH EXPECTATIONS. AND YES I’M TALKING FIRST ABOUT OUR STUDENTS WE EXPECT A LOT FROM THEM. AND WHEN YOU DO THAT THEY DELIVER. BUT ONLY WITH OUR HELP. I’M TALKING ABOUT THE DOGS. TOO I’M TALKING ABOUT US. THEY’RE OVER ELEVEN THOUSAND TEACHERS ADMINISTRATORS AND SUPPORT EMPLOYEES WORKING FOR ANY PS. WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO MEET HIGH EXPECTATIONS AND HIGH EXPECTATIONS WITH EVEN GREATER SUPPORT. FOR OUR TEACHERS STAFF AND ADMINISTRATORS UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR YOU NOT SET UP SO THAT I CAN HOLD YOU ACCOUNTABLE. IF YOU FALL SHORT WELL BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN YOU. I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT. AS AN ADMINISTRATOR PART OF MY JOB IS TO MAKE SURE OUR TEACHERS AND OTHER NPS EMPLOYEES HAVE EVERYTHING THEY NEED TO PROVIDE A HIGH LEVEL OF SUPPORT TO STUDENTS. THAT BEGINS WITH COMPENSATION IT IS A TOP PRIORITY OF MINE. OUR EMPLOYEES TAKE CARE OF OUR STUDENTS AND I WANT TO TAKE CARE OF THEM. BECAUSE WHEN YOU COMBINE HIGH EXPECTATIONS WITH HIGH SUPPORT YOU GET GREAT STUDENT OUTCOMES. THAT’S WHAT OUR TEAM DID AT ANTIOCH HIGH SCHOOL WE WENT FROM A LOW PERFORMING SCHOOLS ARE HIGH PERFORMING SCHOOL IN LESS THAN THREE YEARS. CAN’T SEE I BECAME THE FIRST DOWN IN THE PS HIGH SCHOOL TO RECEIVE THE TENNESSEE REWARDS GOOD AS A NATION AND TODAY ALL OF ITS ACADEMIES HAVE REACHED MODEL STATUS. WITHALL OF THE TALENTED STUDENTS TEACHERS PRINCIPALS AND SUPPORT MP EMPLOYEES WE HAVE AN MIPS. I THINK WE CAN DO THAT ELSEWHERE HOPEFULLY EVERYWHERE. I HAVE PERSONALLY WITNESSEDTHIS GREAT WORK HAPPENING IN ALL OF OUR SCHOOLS ACROSS THE DISTRICT. FINALLY THE THIRD THING WE MUST DO IS ELIMINATE THE DISTRACTIONS ESPECIALLY AS WE ARE CURRENTLY INTESTINE SEIZING SEASON AND PREPARES TO CLOSE OUT THE SCHOOL YEAR. IT’S WHAT THE SYSTEM REQUIRES AND WHAT OUR STUDENTS DESERVE. WE NEED BETTER LISTENING WE NEED MORE INFORMED DECISION MAKING WE NEED TO KEEP MORE OF OUR FOCUS ON THE STUDENTS AND LESS OF IT ALL THE THINGS THAT DISTRACT US FROM OUR GOALS. WE NEED TO ALSO REMEMBER AND CELEBRATE THE GOOD THINGS. TOO MANY DATA POINT DATA POINTS ARE MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION THANKS ALL OF YOU. WE’RE SEEING INCREASES A STUDENT’S ACT PERFORMANCE. EARLY PERFORMANCE DATA SHOWS THAT MIPS STUDENTS ARE MAKING GAINS IN LITERACY AND NUMERACY. WE HAVE MORE STUDENTS ENROLLED IN ADVANCE INSTRUCTION THROUGH A P. I’D BE IN CAMBRIDGE PROGRAMS AND TAKE AN INDUSTRY CERTIFICATIONS THAN EVER BEFORE. AND WE HAVE A GOOD STRATEGIC PLAN IN PLACE TO KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING. ESTHER AS DIRECTOR DO NOT EXPECT A RASH ON INFORMED KNEE JERK CHANGES. WE NEED A SMOOTH ENDING TO A CHALLENGING YEAR. THAT SAID I’M NOT PLANNING ON BEING JUST A CARE TAKER EITHER. I’M NOT PLANNING ON WAITING TO DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO HELP OUR STUDENTS. DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF MY TEAM HERE I HAD THE HONOR OF MEETING OF OPPOSING OUR BUDGET TO THE MAYOR. ADVOCATING ON BEHALF OF OUR DISTRICT TO THE GOVERNOR ALONGSIDE OUR BOARDMEMBERS AND OTHER TENNESSEE SUPERINTENDENTS. MEETING WITH DISTRICT LEADERSHIP AND BUSINESS PARTNERS HOWEVER. THE BEST MOMENTS OF THE WEEK WERE WHEN WE WERE DAYS WHEN I WAS ABLE TO VISIT SEVERAL SCHOOLS SEVERAL OF OUR GREAT SCHOOLS. SPEAKING WITH PRINCIPALS TEACHERS SUPPORT STAFF OBSERVING AND TALKING WITH OUR AMAZING STUDENTS. SEE MY FATHER ONCE TOLD ME ACTUALLY I’M SURE HE WAS MORE THAN ONCE. YOU DON’T HAVE TO KNOW EVERYTHING WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT EVERYTHING. THAT’S A PRETTY GOOD DESCRIPTION OF AN ADMINISTRATIVE JOB. I DON’T KNOW EVERYTHING. THAT’S WHY I’M GOING TO DO A LOT OF LISTENING. OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. EVERY MIPS EMPLOYEE PARENT ESTE COLDER AS A DISTINCT UNDERSTANDING AND PERSPECTIVE AND I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO THOSE CONVERSATIONS. BUT THERE ARE FEW THINGS I DO NOW. I KNOW THIS DISTRICT I KNOW NASHVILLE. I KNOW WHAT IS REQUIRED OF US AS ADULTS. I KNOW WE HAD EXCELLENT AND I MEAN EXCELLENT TEACHERS ADMINISTRATORS SUPPORT EMPLOYEES PARENTS BOARD MEMBERS BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY PARTNERS WHO ARE VESTED IN OUR SYSTEM SUCCESS. I KNOW THAT WE HAVE TO BE WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES ON BEHALF OF OUR STUDENTS. I KNOW THIS IS SAYS IS ALL ABOUT CULTURING AND COMMENT AND THAT EVERYONE PLAYS A PARTAND THAT EVERYONE MUST BELIEVE. I KNOW THAT I BELIEVE IN OUR STUDENTS AND I BELIEVE IN YOU. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND YOUR CONFIDENCE I’M DEEPLY HUMBLED AND VERY EXCITED. SEEM MIPS LET’S GET TO WORK TOGETHER. AND TONIGHT WE WILL RECEIVE AN UPDATE ON DATA FROM OUR MOST RECENT MAP ASSESSMENT. WE’RE LOOKING FOR PROGRESS LEARNING FROM OUR RESULTS AND USING THE DATA TO ADJUST. NOT ONLY AT A DISTRICT LEVEL BUT AT A SCHOOL AND CLASSROOM LEVEL. TEACHERS AND PRINCIPALS HAVE ALREADY BEEN USING THIS DATA TO MAKE A FORM STUDENT. MAKE SURE STUDENTS HAVE WHAT THEY NEED AS WE PUSH FOR TOWARDS TN READY TESTING. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY TO BE SHORT EVERY STUDENT IS LEARNING WHAT THEY NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL NOW AND IN THE FUTURE. THIS EVENING I WANT TO WELCOME DR CHANG IS WHO WALK US THROUGH OUR DISTRICT WIDE DATA. THANK YOU DOCTOR BATTLE — MADAM CHAIR MEMBERS OF THE BOARD I’M GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT — OUR MOST RECENT — MAP RESULTS FROM FEBRUARY AND EARLY MARCH — THIS IS — IS THE THIRD YEAR OF THE MAP TESTING IN THE DISTRICT THE SECOND YEAR THAT WE’VE BEEN ADMINISTERING THE TEST ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE YEAR. TERMS OF PRESENTATION BUT WE HOPEFULLY YOU CAN SEE THE SLIDE- WHAT WE HAVE HERE OUR BULLET POINT SHOWING THE — THE KEY& INFORMATION FOR MY MOST RECENT ASSESSMENT. SO A DISTRICT WIDE. IT MOST GRADE LEVELS WE CONTINUE TO SURPASS OUR MATH SCORES — WITH OUR READING RESULTS SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT OUR PERFORMANCE RELATIVE TO THE NATION — WE’RE WE’RE ADVANCING — MORE QUICKLY AND AND READING IN TERMS OF ACHIEVEMENT GROSSES COMPARABLE ON THAT — TOO OUR OVERALL OUR MAP ACHIEVEMENT HAS REMAINED BELOW THE FIFTIETH PERCENTILE — BETTER THAN HIGHER FIRST FOR THE STUDENTS THAT HAVE BEEN IN THE DISTRICT FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS AND CONSISTENTLY TAKEN THE MAP SO IN OTHER WORDS WE KNOW THAT MOBILITY — AS A NEGATIVE – CORRELATION WITH WITH REGARD TO ACHIEVEMENT AND WE’LL LOOK AT SOME DATA FOR STUDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN IN THE DISTRICT FOR FOR TWO CONSECUTIVE YEARS. OUR GROWS FROM AUGUST TO FEBRUARY WAS SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THE NATIONAL AVERAG. IN BOTH SUBJECT AREAS. AND OUR FEBRUARY ACHIEVEMENT — WAS VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT WE SAW A YEAR AGO IN FEBRUARY OF TWO THOUSAND EIGHTEEN WITH REGARD TO READING SCORES — IN IN THIS. SLIDE THE FIRST THING YOU SEE ARE THAT THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WHO. HAVE CONSISTENTLY TESTED WITH THE MAP ASSESSMENT OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS SO WE DECIDED TO TAKE A LOOK AT A COHORT OF STUDENT COHORTS OF STUDENTS BY GRADE LEVEL — IN THIS IS THEIR TWO THOUSAND EIGHTEEN NINETEEN GRADE LEVEL THAT HAVE BEEN IN THE DISTRICT CONSISTENTLY IN OTHER WORDS — THIS AVOIDS — ANY — ADJUSTMENT IN THE DATA DUE TO STUDENTS MOVING IN AND OUT OF THE SYSTEM — IN A MEMO THAT WAS RECENTLY SHARED WITH YOU WE SHOW THE DATA FOR ALL STUDENTS TESTED I AM THE CHIEF MINISTRATION. BUT THESE ARE THE SAME STUDENTS OVER SIX ADMINISTRATIONS — AS YOU’LL SEE THE NUMBERS OF SECOND GRADERS IS CONSIDERED IS SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER BECAUSE WE DON’T MANDATE A FIRST GRADE TESTS OF THE SECOND GRADE DATA THIS YEAR WOULD BE LAST YEAR’S FIRST GRADERS — IN SCHOOLS THAT CHOSE TO ADMINISTER THE MAP. WHICH YOU SEE OUR NATIONAL PERCENTILE SCORES THAT FOLLOW — THAT DATA — OVER THE OLD THE SIX ADMINISTRATIONS OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS. AND IF WE LOOK AT THE PROGRESS FROM AUGUST OF THIS YEAR TO FEBRUARY — WE SEE AT EVERY GRADE LEVEL — IMPROVEMENT IN TERMS OF ACHIEVEMENT SCORES OVER THAT PERIOD OF TIME. WHEN WE END? OUR NATIONAL AVERAGE WOULD BE THE FIFTIETH PERCENTILE SO YOU CAN SEE AT GRADES TWO EIGHT AND NINE WE WERE ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE FOR THOSE STUDENTS WHO BEEN CONSISTENTLY IN THE DISTRICT. THE LAST ONE OF THE NICE FEATURES OF THE MAP ASSESSMENT MEASURES OF ACADEMIC PROGRESS IS THAT IT DOES PROVIDE NOT ONLY NATIONAL NORMS FOR ACHIEVEMENT. BUT ALSO FOR ACADEMIC GROWTH SO THAT WE CAN LOOK AT THE PROGRESS OF OUR STUDENTS FROM AUGUST IS OUR BASELINE — TO FEBRUARY RELATIVE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN TERMS OF THAT ACADEMIC GROWTH. SO THE LAST TWO COLUMNS ARE THE FEBRUARY RESULTS OF FROM LAST YEAR AND FROM THIS YEAR — IN TERMS OF THE GROWTH THAT THAT WE SAW AT THE END OF THE YEAR. BOTH YEARS WE SING. THAT GROWS ABOUT THE NATIONAL AVERAGE — IN GENERAL THE ONLY EXCEPTION WAS LAST YEAR AT THE SIX GRADE LEVEL THIS YEAR WERE AT OR ABOVE THE FIFTIETH PERCENTILE AT EVERY GRADE LEVEL. THE LAST ROW OF THE TABLE IS SHOWING THE COMBINED RESULTS ACROSS GRADES TWO THREE NINE AND THIS WAS THE FIRST YEAR OF NINTH GRADE TESTING IS A MANDATE. AND WHAT WE SEE IS A PATTERN THAT OUR SCORES TAKE A LITTLE BIT OF A DIP IN NOVEMBER WHICH IS LIKELY DUE TO THE FACT THAT WE TEST ABOUT THREE TO FOUR WEEKS. EARLIER THAN THE REST OF THE COUNTRY IN TERMS OF THAT WINTER ASSESSMENT — WHICH IS. ALL ABOUT TRYING TO GET TO IT RESULTS FOR TEACHERS INSTRUCTIONAL LEE BEFORE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS. AND GETTING A THIRD ASSESSMENT AND IN TIME THESE RESULTS TO PREPARE FOR TEN READY AND IN ANY FINAL ASSESSMENTS. SO WE TAKE A DIP IN NOVEMBER — THEN WE BOUNCED BACK IN FEBRUARY AND FOR BOTH YEARS THE SCORES IN FEBRUARY — HAVE BEEN HIGHER THAN THAN THEY WERE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR. WE ALSO SEE THOUGH THAT THERE IS A DECLINE FROM FEBRUARY OF OF OF A GIVEN YEAR TO AUGUST — THE FOLLOWING YEAR THAT. MAY BE SUMMER LOST THAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT — IT ALSO MEANT A THERE THERE MAY BE SOME LOSS THAT OCCURS AFTER FEBRUARY EVEN DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR. WE KNOW THAT APRIL IS A BUSY MONTH WITH TESTING — THERE’S ALSO A CONCERN THAT — THIS THE SCHOOL YEARS NOT OVER WHEN PHOEBE WIN TEN RADIS FINISH THAT WE’VE GOT TO CONTINUE TO TO PUSH FORWARD THROUGH THE END THROUGH MAY. BUT OUR GROSS — IN TERMS OF THE OVERALL GROSS GRADES. TWO THREE NINE AGAIN AND READING IS ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE — FLAT WITH FIFTY BEING THE NATIONAL AVERAGE IS SO WE’RE THIS YEAR WE WERE SIX POINTS ABOVE THAT. WHEN WE LOOK AT MATHEMATICS IN A SIMILAR FORMAT? WE AGAIN — SEES THE SAME RESULTS FOR THE SAME STUDENTS WHO TOOK THE MASS ASSESSMENT ON MAP FOR SIX SIX CONSECUTIVE ADMINISTRATIONS. AND IF WE LOOK AT THE AUGUST VERSUS FEBRUARY RESULTS — WE GENERALLY SEE IMPROVEMENT — WE DID SEE A LITTLE BIT OF A DIP — AT A COUPLE OF GRADE LEVELS AT FIFTH GRADE AND AT NINTH GRADE WE LOST A PERCENTILE POINTS. OVER THAT PERIOD OF TIME OVERALL WE’RE WE’RE MOVING UP SLIGHTLY. BUT OUR MEDIA NATIONAL PERCENTILE FOR GROSS AND THAT’S BASICALLY SAYING THAT ARE TYPICAL STUDENT COMPARED TO THE NATIONAL AVERAGE — BEING — FIFTY WE’RE WE’RE WE’RE MAKING THIS A LITTLE BIT GREATER GROWTH IN MASS — IN ALL AREAS EXCEPT FOR FIFTH GRADE AND THAT’S AN AREA THAT WE’VE ALREADY STARTED WORKING WITH OUR CURRICULUM INSTRUCTION STAFF AND OUR I CHIEF OF SCHOOLS TO START DIGGING INTO THE INTO THOSE STANDARDS A LITTLE MORE DEEPLY. I WE ALSO KNOW FIFTH GRADE IS A TRANSITION GRADE — FROM ELEMENTARY TO MIDDLE SCHOOL IN WITH VALUE ADDED SCORES THAT SAYS A GREAT DEAL THAT WE TYPICALLY SEE IT IS — A LITTLE. LITTLE BIT OF A CHALLENGE BUT AS I MENTIONED EARLIER OUR MATH SCORES WHEN YOU LOOK AT THESE NUMBERS. COMPARED TO THE READING SCORES ARE A BIT LOWER RELATIVE TO THE NATION. AGAIN LOOKING AT THE LAST ROW OF DATA WE SEE THE SAME PATTERN — IN MATH THAT WE SAW IN READING US A LITTLE BIT OF A DIP IN NOVEMBER AND THEN BOUNCED BACK IN FEBRUARY. AND THEN AGAIN FROM FEBRUARY TO AUGUST A LITTLE BIT OF A LOSS. IN TERMS OF GROSS. OUR TYPICAL STUDENT — THIS YEAR OUT SCORED 54% OF STUDENTS — NATIONALLY AND IN TERMS OF GROS- A LITTLE BIT LOWER THAN WE SAW LAST YEAR BUT THESE ARE THESE ARE FOR THE STUDENTS TO BIN AND THE DISTRICT CONSISTENTLY — IN A MINUTE WE’LL LOOK AT RESULTS FOR ALL STUDENTS. BUT ONE THING I DO WANT TO POINT OUT — IS WE HAVE REFERENCED IN IN PRIOR PRESENTATIONS — WE HAD A CHANGE IN THE ACCOMMODATIONS THAT WERE PROVIDED TO STUDENTS AND AND READING THIS YEAR — AS I THINK YOU’RE ALL AWARE WE’VE BEEN TRYING TO CUT DOWN ON THAT THE NUMBER OF ASSESSMENTS WE’VE HEARD FROM BOARD MEMBERS REFERRED FROM PARENTS ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF TESTING. SO A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO WE MADE THE DECISION TO TO USE THE MAP ASSESSMENT IS THE FIRST SCREENER IN OUR UNIVERSAL SCREENING PROCESS THAT WERE REQUIRED TO TO DO. AND TO ONLY SCREEN STUDENTS WERE IDENTIFIED AT RISK WITH ADDITIONAL — SKILLS BASED ASSESSMENTS THAT FAST BRIDGE ASSESSMENTS OF THE DISTRICT USE- BUT THAT — THAT BROUGHT ON A DIFFERENT CHALLENGE FOR US BECAUSE WITH THE UNIVERSAL SCREENER YOU NORMALLY DO NOT. ADMINISTER THAT THE READING ASSESSMENT WITH READ ALOUD OR TEXT TO SPEECH ACCOMMODATIONS. ARE BECAUSE THERE’S THE RISK OF NOT IDENTIFYING STUDENTS WITH A READING DISABILITY — AND THE TWO QUOTES YOU SEE HERE ARE FROM THE SAME LETTER THAT WE RECEIVED FROM THERESA NICHOLS AN ASSISTANT COMMISSIONER OF THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION OVER SPECIAL POPULATIONS. AND RAISING CONCERNS ABOUT. THE FACT THAT WE WERE USING — THE MAP ASSESSMENT WITH ACCOMMODATIONS TO IDENTIFY STUDENTS FOR ACADEMIC MAGNET ELIGIBILITY. BECAUSE WE’RE TRYING TO GET THE BIGGEST BANG FOR THE BUCK WITH THESE ASSESSMENTS AND USE TEM IN MULTIPLE WAYS AND FOR FOR DECADES — WE’VE HAD ACADEMIC MAGNET QUALIFYING — GUIDELINES THAT ALLOW THE STUDENTS TO QUALIFY WITH THAT COME FROM SPECIALLY THEY COME FROM OUTSIDE THE DISTRICT BUT NOW FOR INSIDE OR OUTSIDE THE DISTRICT. I THREW A NATIONALLY NORMED ACHIEVEMENT TESTS SUCH AS THE MAP. AND SO. ON ONE SIDE WE’RE NOT TO USE THESE READ ALOUD ACCOMMODATIONS FOR SCREENING PURPOSES BUT WE ARE REQUIRED TO USE THEM FOR ME MCEN ACADEMIC MAGNET ELIGIBILIT. AND THIS IS A REAL ISSUE THAT WAS BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION — FROM PARENTS — S WELL. WE MET WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION IN OCTOBER TO TRY TO FIND A RESOLUTION. WHICH WAS THAT WE WOULD ADMINISTER THE MAP WITH ACCOMMODATIONS GOING FORWARD AND WE DID THAT ON THE LAST TWO ADMINISTRATIONS. HOWEVER STUDENTS TO RECEIVE THOSE ACCOMMODATIONS — ARE TO BE IDENTIFIED AS AT RISK AND AND HAVE FURTHER ASSESSMENT WITH THE FAST ASSESSMENT. SO GOING FORWARD WE WILL CONTINUE TO PROVIDE THESE ACCOMMODATIONS AND THESE ARE THE SAME ACCOMMODATIONS THAT STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE ON THE TEN READY ASSESSMENT AND ARE APPROPRIATE FOR THOSESTUDENTS. THIS IMPACTS OUR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES AND ENGLISH LEARNERS — IF IT AS SOME OF THE SOME OF OUR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES THAT HAVE THAT IN THE I EP. THE NEXT SLIDE IS LOOKING AT OUR DATA OVER — THIS IS FEBRUARY FOR COMPARED TO LAST YEAR FEBRUARY OF TWO THOUSAND EIGHTEEN IN OTHER WORDS HOW DO WE LOOK RIGHT NOW COMPARED TO WHERE WE WERE LAST YEAR. AND IS THE FIRST. TWO COLUMNS AFTER THE GRADE LEVEL — SHOW THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS TESTED IN THIS IS AGAIN ALL STUDENTS WHO TOOK THE MAP ADMINISTRATION — EACH OF THOSE FEBRUARY’S. THEN WE HAVE OUR ACHIEVEMENT DATA THE MEDIAN NATIONAL PERCENTILE SO THIS IS TAKING OUR TYPICAL STUDENT AND IDENTIFYING WHAT PERCENT OF STUDENTS THEY HAVE SCORED HIGHER THAN NATIONALLY SO WITH THE SECOND GRADE — WE SEE AND LAST YEAR THAT ARE TYPICAL SECOND GRADERS SCORED HIGHER THAN 47% OF STUDENTS NATIONALLY THIS YEAR 43% OF STUDENTS NATIONALLY. SO WE SEE CEMEX RESULTS IN TERMS OF WHERE WE ARE THIS YEAR VERSUS LAST YEAR — DEPENDING ON THE GRADE LEVEL — WERE UP IN SAM DOWN AND OTHERS OVERALL — WE’RE DOWN ONE POINT FOR HIM IN TERMS OF TREATMENT FROM THIS POINT LAST YEAR. WITH RESPECT TO THE PERCENT OF STUDENTS SCORING SIGNIFICANTLY ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE THE THE SIXTY FIRST PERCENTILE OR HIGHER — OUR OVERALL RESULTS ACROSS GRADE LEVELS ARE IDENTICAL IF YOU LOOK AT THAT BOTTOM ROW 3434% A LITTLE OVER A THIRD OF OUR STUDENTS ARE SCORING IN THAT THAT RANGE. NATIONALLY THERE WOULD BE ABOUT 40% OF STUDENTS SCORING IN THOSE TWO QUINTILES. WITH REGARD TO ACADEMIC GROWTH SO WE LOOK JUST LIKE DID ACHIEVEMENT ONE TIME MEASURES OF ACHIEVEMENT. NOW WE’RE LOOKING AT WHAT’S HAPPENED FROM AUGUST TO FEBRUARY IN TERMS OF GROWTH AND HOW OUR STUDENTS COMPARE. SO AT THE SECOND GRADE LEVEL THIS YEAR WE’RE IN A SIXTY SIX THAT MEANS THAT ARE. TYPICAL SECOND GRADER MADE MORE PROGRESS FROM AUGUST — THAN THAN ABOUT TWO THIRDS 66% OF STUDENTS NATIONALLY — OUR OVERALL GROSS ACROSS GRADE LEVELS WAS A FIFTY SEVEN SO WE’RE WE’RE NOT ONLY WERE SIGNIFICANTLY ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE — WE’RE A LITTLE ABOVE WHERE WE WERE IN TERMS OF GROWTH LAST YEAR — LAST YEAR WE DID SEE THAT THAT THE SCORES HELD U- PRETTY WELL WITH REGARD TO OUR TEN READY DATA IS WE WERE OF FIVE IN GRADES THREE THROUGH EIGHT IN TERMS OF ACADEMIC GROWTHS ON TEN READY — BUT I HAVE AN ASTERISK BY THAT — FIFTY SEVEN IT FOR FEBRUARY OF THIS YEAR AT THE BOTTOM — IT BECAUSE WE DID SEE ACCELERATING GROWTH FOR STUDENTS WHO TOOK THE ASSESSMENT WITH READ ALOUD ACCOMMODATIONS — BUT THERE IS RELATIVELY SMALL PERCENTAGE OF OUR STUDENTS AGAIN ENGLISH LEARNER STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES THAT QUALIFY — WHEN WE TAKE THOSE STUDENTS OUT? TO TO LOOK AT MORE OF AN APPLES TO APPLES COMPARISON OF THAT PERSON’S HOUSE AT FIFTY FOUR SO IT’S IT’S STILL ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE AND IT’S ROUGHLY EQUIVALENT — TO WHERE WE WERE LAST YEAR FOR BOTH. THAT COLUMN AND FOR THE NEXT COLUMN WHICH IS THE PERCENT OF STUDENTS THAT MEET PROJECTIONS. AND THOSE PROJECTIONS ARE SET BY THE TEST COMPANY — BASED ON THE NATIONAL AVERAGE IN TERMS OF GROWTH. IF OUR STUDENTS OUR STUDENTS GET A SCORE IN AUGUST AND WE PROJECT AHEAD WHERE THEY SHOULD BE BASED ON THAT DATA — IN FEBRUARY. NATIONALLY 50% OF STUDENTS WOULD MEET THOSE PROJECTIONS AND WERE- AT FIFTY SEVEN POINT 7% — IT ACROSS GRADE LEVELS AND YOU CAN SEE — GREAT — TO ALMOST TWO THIRDS OF OUR STUDENTS — EXCEEDED THOSE EXPECTATIONS THE ONE GRADE LEVEL THAT FELL LITTLE SHORT WAS WAS NINTH GRADE. WHEN WE TAKE OUT OUR STUDENTS WHO GOT THE READ ALOUD ACCOMMODATIONS THAT NUMBERS OF FIFTY FIVE POINT FOUR WHICH IS SLIGHTLY BELOW LAST YEAR BUT STILL ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAG? OF THOSE READ ALOUD ACCOMMODATIONS — HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS IN MATHEMATICS SO THERE’S NO ADJUSTMENT REQUIRED HERE — IN WE HAVE THE SAME BREAK DOWNS IN TERMS OF NUMBER TESTED MEDIAN NATIONAL PERCENTILE — PERCENT OF STUDENTS GOING SIGNIFICANTLY ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE AND THEN — IN TERMS OF GROSS. SO OUR OVERALL GROWS IN MATHEMATICS. IS IT THE FIFTY FIFTH PERCENTILE IN TERMS OF GROSS WHICH IS A LITTLE ABOVE. THE NATIONAL AVERAGE SLIGHTLY BELOW LAST YEAR — WHAT WE DIDN’T SEE LAST YEAR FOR A FROM MAP TO TEN READY WAS THE SAME — GROSS RELATIVE TO THE STATE — WE WERE A LITTLE BELOW THE STATE IN TERMS OF GROWTH IN MATHEMATICS AND THREE THROUGH EIGHT WE WERE ABOVE IN READING AND SCIENCE — THAT A LITTLE BIT BELOW IN MASS — LAST YEAR THAT WAS YOU REMEMBER WE HAD SOME — DISTRACTIONS FROM THE TECH AT THE BEGINNING OF THE TEN READY TESTING WITH THEIR ONLINE TESTING AND IT IMMEDIATELY BECAME KNOWN THAT THE SCORES WERE NOT GOING TO COUNT AND AND GRADES — FORTUNATELY WE WERE INTO OUR SECOND WEEK OF TEN READY TESTING WITHOUT THOSE — DISTRACTIONS SO FAR AND THINGS ARE MOVING MUCH MORE SMOOTHLY S- WE’RE HOPEFUL THAT — THAT WILL HAVE A A MORE RELIABLE — SET OF TEN READY DATED AT THE END OF THIS PROCESS. FINALLY — LOOKING AT THE DATA WITH RESPECT TO OUR OUR SUBGROUPS FIRST LOOKING AT ACHIEVEMENT WITH READING ACHIEVEMENT — ON THE TOP BRASS AND BASS UNDERNEATH — ALL OF OUR ETHNIC SUBGROUPS AND THEN OUR ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED ENGLISH LEARNERS AND STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES — AS WE’VE SEEN BEFORE — TREMENDOUS VARIATION ACROSS SUB GROUPS — YOU KNOW WE WE SEE SUBGROUPS SUCH AS OUR ASIAN AND WHITE STUDENTS SIGNIFICANTLY ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE IN IN IN BOTH READING AND MATH ABOUT THE FIFTIETH PERCENTILE — BUT WE SEE THAT — WE’RE WE’RE SIGNIFICANTLY BELOW FOR A BLACK HISPANIC ENGLISH LEARNERS — ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS — I’VE PROVIDED A SUMMARY OF SOME OF OUR ACHIEVEMENT GAP DATA EARLIER THIS YEAR WHICH LOOKED AT NOT ONLY MAP AT TEN READY. IN A C. T. RESULTS WE’VE CONTINUED TO SEE. TO SEE GAPS ARE SUBGROUPS ARE IMPROVING IMPROVING BUT GENERALLY — THE GROWTH THIS IS PRETTY COMPARABL- SO THE GAPS REMAIN. AND WITH RESPECT TO ACADEMIC GROSS — HERE THE DATA LOOKS MUCH MORE COMPARABLE FROM SEPARATE DECIDE GROUP — WE HAVE FOUR FOR READING WE SEE SOME VERY NICE SCORES FOR ENGLISH LEARNERS SEVENTY FIRST PERCENTILE — THEY DID BENEFIT FROM THE READ ALOUD TEXT TO SPEECH ACCOMMODATION — WHAT WE SAW LAST YEAR WHEN THOSE STUDENTS TO THE E. R. E. L. STUDENTS DID NOT GET THAT ACCOMMODATION THEY WERE AT THE FIFTY SECOND PERCENTILE — THEY WERE STILL ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE BUT NOT BY NOT BY THE THE SAME DEGREE SO THAT CONFIRMS THAT THE STUDENTS DO BENEFIT AND DO NEED THE ACCOMMODATION TO COMPENSATE FOR FOR THE LANGUAGE DEFICIT — SAME THING WITH THEIR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES GET GET A A BUMP WITH REGARD TO THAT DATA IN THERE TYPICALLY A LITTLE BELOW THE NATIONAL AVERAGE IN TERMS OF GROSS. BUT WE’RE WE’RE SAYING FOR ALL OF THE THE SUB GROUPS THAT ARE SIGNIFICANT IN SIZE — THE EXCEPTION BEING A NATIVE AMERICAN GROUP — GROWTH IT DIDN’T MATTER EXCEEDED THE NATIONAL AVERAGE EXCEPT — FOR BLACK STUDENTS AND AND MATHEMATICS WERE ONE POINT THE LOW IN TERMS OF GROWTH. SO WHAT WE IDEALLY WILL SEE IS MOVEMENT FOR THOSE SUBGROUPS TO HIS ACHIEVEMENT THAT HAS HISTORICALLY LOWER. ALL THAT’S TO SAY WE’RE STAYING ABOVE AVERAGE GROWS ACHIEVEMENT IS NOT — WHERE WE WANT IT IT’S PRETTY COMPARABLE TO WHERE WE WERE THIS TIME LAST YEAR IN TERMS OF ACHIEVEMENT — TODAY HOPEFULLY THESE RESULTS WILL — THE GROWTH WILL CONTINUE NOT ONLY THREE FEBRUARY BUT THROUGH THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. AND WITH THAT I WILL TAKE QUESTIONS [inaudible] THANK YOU. THANK YOU PAUL — LOOKS LIKE — TYPICALLY IT LOOKS LIKE A HIGH SCHOOL OR HIGH SCHOOL RAID IS EIGHTH GRADE. IS THAT TRADE FOR THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS. ITS THE EIGHTH GRADE HAS BEEN ONE OF OUR STRONGEST GRADES TYPICALLY NOT ONLY FOR MAP THAT FOR TEN READY AS WELL — WE TEND TO SEE. AS YOU AS YOU’RE AWARE OF A HIT WHEN STUDENTS TRANSITION TO MIDDLE SCHOOL. DO YOU TEND TO BOUNCE BACK AND USUALLY IS NOT ALWAYS BUT USUALLY EIGHTH GRADE IS ONE OF THE THE TOP. TOP SCORES THE V. HAVE WE STUDIED WOW WHAT’S GOING ON IN EIGHTH GRADE IS THERE IS. IS THERE A FACTOR THERE THAT WE COULD DUPLICATE AND SOME OF THE OTHER GRADE LEVELS. THAT’S THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION ADD TALKED. WITH DOCTOR BATTLE EARLIER TODAY ABOUT — BEST PRACTICES IN MODELING IN TERMS OF WHAT WHAT’S HAPPENED LAST YEAR WE BROUGHT TEACHERS TOGETHER WHO. ARE GETTING GOOD RESULTS IN TERMS OF THE SCORES AND AND AND I’D LIKE TO DO THIS NOT — GETTING GOOD GROWTH BOTH IN TERMS OF WHICH TEN RANDY AND MA- I THINK PART OF IT IS FAMILIARITY THAT WITH THE STUDENTS HAVE BEEN WITH US LONGER AND AND WE HAVE MORE DATE ON THEM AND UTILIZING THAT DATA. BUT BUT THERE’S PROBABLY MORE TO IT THAN THAT AND I DON’T HAVE A GOOD ANSWER FOR THAT BUT I THINK IT’S IT’S WORTHWHILE TO TO PR SE THAT. BUT I DO KNOW IT AGAIN I I MENTIONED THE TRANSITION GRADES AND AND WE SAW SOME OF THAT IN THE NINTH GRADE ANYTIME THERE’S A TRANSITION. TO A NEW BUILDING — THEN THIS ISN’T JUST A METRO THIS IS STATEWIDE AND NATIONALLY WE SEE GROWTH IMPACTED. AND HOW QUICKLY WE PICK UP THAT PACE AND BOUNCE BACK IS IS IS THE CHALLENGE. AND THANK YOU AND AND THE WHAT WE THINK ABOUT GROSS VERSUS ACHIEVEMENT. HOW MANY OF THESE KIDS WHO ARE – BEATING THE NATIONAL AVERAGE HOW MANY WHAT PERCENTAGE. OF THESE KIDS ARE READING AT GRADE LEVEL. I DON’T HAVE ANY DATA TO INDICATE THAT BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW THAT MAP DOES THIS MAP TELL US. IF A CHILD IS READING AT GRADE LEVEL. YEAH AND AND AND I I WISH I COULD GIVE A MORE TRANSPARENT ANSWERED AND WE’VE HAD SOME CONVERSATIONS AROUND THIS BECAUSE IT DEPENDS ON HOW WE DEFINE IT GRADE LEVEL IF WE DEFINE IT MEETING OUR OUR ACADEMIC STANDARDS THAT WE DEFINED AS A STATE. AND AS YOU KNOW OVER THE YEARS WE’VE CHANGED THAT DEFINITION PRETTY SIGNIFICANTLY IN TERMS OF THOSE EXPECTATIONS — WEEK WE NOW HAVE EXPECTATIONS IN TERMS OF STANDARDS THAT ARE NO LONGER MINIMAL PROFICIENCY FOR A GRADE LEVEL BETTER REALLY. ENTER IT IN TRMS OF SHOWING THAT A STUDENT IS ON TRACK FOR COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS. AND EIGHT ONE POINT WE WE LOOKED AT THE FIFTY S. NATIONAL PERCENTILE TO SAY IF A STUDENT ON A ON AN IN AND NATIONALLY NORMED ACHIEVEMENT TESTS AT THE FIFTIETH PERCENTILE. THAT THEY’RE THEY’RE TYPICAL OF STUDENTS NATIONALLY THAT THEY’RE A GRADE LEVEL THAT’S A DIFFERENT STANDARD. IF YOU LOOK AT THAT AS A STANDARD YOU KNOW WE WERE SLIGHTLY IT WE’RE WE’RE IN ABOUT THE 45% RANGE AT MOST GRADE LEVELS IN TERMS OF STUDENTS HITTING THAT STAND. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT IT IN TERMS OF MEETING STAND MEETING THE NEW STATE ACADEMIC STANDARDS — IT’S IT’S A SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER NUMBER — I’VE HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH INDIVIDUALS AT THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION IN TERMS OF WHETHER THAT. HE HAD PROFICIENCY YOU’RE ON TRACK PERFORMANCE ON A TEN READY IS SHOULD BE OUR DEFINITION — AND MAY EVEN SAY THAT THAT’S PROBABLY A HIGHER BAR THAN WE WOULD TYPICALLY. A QUITE TO BEING ON GRADE LEVEL. SO I I THINK THAT’S PROBABLY. A GOOD DISCUSSION — FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING MEETING IN TERMS OF IF THAT DEFINITION — I’LL SAY THIS WE HAVE. IS A STATE WE HAVE RAISED ON TEN READY THE BAR FOR BEING — ON TRACK — THE IT’S IT’S THE SECOND HIGHEST IN THE COUNTRY RIGHT NOW AND IT’S IT’S HIGHER THAN THE ACT COLLEGE READINESS STANDARDS WHICH ARE VERY HIGH MARKS. SO WHEN WHEN A STUDENT HITS THAT BAR WE KNOW THEY’RE IN A IN A VERY GOOD PLACE — BUT IF THEY COME UP A LITTLE SHORT OF THAT I I AM — I HAVE FIND IT DIFFICULT TO SAY THEY’RE NOT ON GRADE LEVEL THEY’RE JUST. YOU KNOW THEY’RE GOING TO BE FINE AND A YOU KNOW IF THERE IS THAT BETWEEN THE FIFTIETH AND SEVENTY PERCENTILE THEY’RE GONNA DO FINE IN TERMS OF MEETING. HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS AND PROBABLY — IN MOST CASES BE READY FOR COLLEGE BUT THEY’RE NOT NOT HITTING THE HIGHEST BAR THAT THAT WE SAID AS A STAY. YEARS AGO WE HAD REPORT CARDS THAT — WITH THAT TOLD PARENTS WHAT LEVEL A CHILD WAS READING ON BEGINNING OF KINDERGARTENS FIRST SECOND ALL THE WAY UP. WELL AT LEAST TWO FOURTH MAYBE FIFTH GRADE. WHAT LEVEL THEY WERE READING ON IN TERMS OF FIND SOMETHING ELSE? AND THEN WHAT LEVEL THEY WERE WAITING ON WITH EACH GRADE LEVEL I’M SORRY WITH EACH REPORT CARD. SO PARENTS COULD SEE. MASS STUDENT MACKIE ED HAS MADE THIS MUCH PROGRESS IN READING A TEXT. A COLD TEXT. AND WE NO LONGER USE. OF THOSE REPORT CARDS BUT DO WE WE’RE NOT. DOING T. LA’S ANYMORE — THROUGH WE’RE NOT. THEY’RE THEY’RE NOT MANDATED BY THE DISTRICT — IN. I’M PRETTY SURE THERE ARE SCHOOLS STILL DOING THEM BUT IT’S NOT COLLECTED CENTRALLY I DON’T KNOW WHAT PERCENTAGE OF OUR OUR SCHOOLS ARE DOING THAT IS THAT SOMETHING WE CAN PURSUE- THERE IS OTHER INFORMATION THAT COMES OUT OF THESE ASSESSMENTS THAT CAN CAN BE ROUGHLY TRANSLATED TO TO THOSE LEVELS BUT IT’S IT’S NOT QUITE THE SAME TIME I KNOW. AND AND WE KNOW THAT THE BEST DATA IS TRIANGULATION SAT CORRECT WELL WE HAVE LOTS OF DIFFERENT AT LEAST THREE DIFFERENT POINTS. OF TO LOOK AT THE READING LEVEL OF A CHILD. NOT ONE TWO MAYBE THREE MAYBE MORE. AND HOW MANY. SOURCES TO WE HAVE NOW WE HAVE MAP. WE HAVE MAP WE HAVE FAST ASSESSMENTS THAT ARE ADMINISTERED — AND AND KAY AND ONE THREE TIMES A YEAR AND BETTER AND ARE USED — IS FOR PROGRESS MONITORING PURPOSES FOR STUDENTS AT RISK SO THEY’RE NOT ADMINISTERED. TO EVERY STUDENT – AND THEN WHAT AND THE ONLY OTHER MANDATED ASSESSMENTS ACROSS THE DISTRICT — YOU KNOW WE HAVE THE TEN READY WE HAVE THEM THE MAP AND AND THE FAST AND THAT’S THAT’S IT NOW SCHOOLS ARE DOING THEIR OWN ASSESSMENTS BUT THAT’S GONNA VERY — FROM SCHOOL TO SCHOOL. I KNOW THIS THROUGH THE MULTI TIERED SYSTEMS OF SUPPORT IN TSS PROCESS WE’RE LOOKING AT YOU TALK ABOUT TRYING ELATION WE’REA TOGETHER NOT ONLY FROM THE MANDATED ASSESSMENTS BUT FROM OTHER ASSESSMENTS AT SCHOOLS ARE ADMINISTERING — THE POTENTIAL OF US — DEVELOPING SOME SHORT CYCLE ASSESSMENTS AS A RESOURCE FOR FOR SCHOOLS. BUT I KNOW THERE’S A LOT MORE DATA THAT IT’S OUT THERE IN TERMS OF WHAT TEACHERS ARE DOING THAT THAT IT’S NOT GATHERED CENTRALLY — AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT WE’RE WE’RE LOOKING AT IT HAS HAD A WEEK MIGHT. PULL THAT TOGETHER INTO A MORE COMPREHENSIVE REPORT. IS IT TRUE THAT TEACHERS SAID THAT T. L. A. DATA OR RUNNING RECORD DATA WAS ONE OF THE PIECES OF INFORMATION. THAT WAS MOST USEFUL TO THEM S. I. DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION. I KNOW THAT BASED ON A SURVEY WE ADMINISTERED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO IT WAS — AS I’M ONE OF THE MORE POPULAR ONES WE HAD. WE HAD TEACHERS THAT THEY EXPRESSED CONCERN ABOUT THE TIME INVOLVED BUT THEY ALSO GENERALLY EXPRESSED THAT IT WAS A USEFUL REPORT — FOR THEM TO USE USEFUL ASSESSMENT AGAIN THEY’RE NOT RESTRICTED FROM ADMINISTERING THOSE ASSESSMENTS ESPECIALLY IF THEY FEEL IT IS PROVIDING USEFUL FEEDBACK — ONE OF THE CONCERNS THAT WAS EXPRESSED BY SOME OF THE SOME OF THE SCHOOLS WAS THE TIME SPENT COLLECTING THE DATA AND PUTTING IT IN A FORMAT TO TO REPORT CENTRALLY. AND SO I DON’T KNOW I THINK WE CAN GET INFORMATION FROM SCHOOLS ON ON HOW MANY ARE CONTINUING TO ADMINISTER THOSE ASSESSMENTS BUT IN SOME CASES I THINK IT’S UP TO THE INDIVIDUAL TEACHER RATHER THAN A SCHOOL WIDE DECISION. THANK YOU PAUL [inaudible] THANKS. THREE BENCHMARK TESTS ARE THAT’S IS THAT TRADITIONAL IN OTHER DISTRICTS THAT WE DO DO MAP THREE TIMES THAT’S PRETTY TYPICAL WEEK WE HAVE THREE MANDATED WE HAVE A FORCE OPTIONAL ASSESSMENT — IN MAY COM AT THE END OF THE YEAR — WHAT WE HAVE TYPICALLY FOUND IS THAT — OTHER THAN GREAT — TO BECAUSE GREAT TO DOES NOT TAKE TEN READY — THE FIFTEENTH TENDS TO BE A FACTOR IN AND THOSE SCORES OF TENDED TO BE A LITTLE DEFLATED — IN A TEN RATING GOES WELL INTO APRIL AND THEN A MAP THE MAP WINDOW — IS THAT FOR A COUPLE WEEKS IN MAY. THREE IS IS A PRETTY TYPICAL NUMBER AND THE. AT THE FOURTH ASSESSMENT FOR US BEING THE TEN READY ASSESSMENT. SO CAN YOU HELP MANAGE A LITTLE BIT BETTER THIS THE SCREENER CONVERSATION SO. PRIOR TO MAP WHAT WERE WE DOING AS A UNIVERSAL SCREENER SO — FOR IT FOR ONE YEAR — THE FAST BRIDGE ASSESSMENTS WERE GIVEN TO ALL STUDENTS — AS A AS A SCREEN OR IT’S A SKILLS BASED ASSESSMENT — PRIOR TO THAT WE WERE USING AIMS WEB FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS — WITH WITH IT AND AS A GENERAL RULE — IF YOU HAVE A CHILD — AT RISK HE’S SCORING LOW ON A SCREENER — YOU WANT TO GET IN DEPTH INFORMATION IN TERMS OF THEIR READING SKILLS OR THEIR MATH SKILLS AND AND AND THE FAST ASSESSMENTS GIVE YOU VERY SPECIFIC SKILLS BASED INFORMATION — SO WHAT IF WE HAVE A STUDENT THAT AND SAID THAT THE CURRENT PROCESS IS MAP IS GIVEN IN GRADES THREE THROUGH EIGHT IS OUR AS I’M SORRY IN GRADES TWO THROUGH EIGHT IS OUR INITIAL SCREENER — IN AND FAST BRIDGES CONTINUED TO USING A GRADES K. IN — ONE IF A STUDENT SCORES POORLY — IN TYPICALLY WE’RE TALKING ABOUT STUDENTS ARE BELOW THE TWENTY FIFTH PERCENTILE — THERE IS HIGH RISK IF THEY’RE THE BELOW THE 10% OUT BUT IF THEY’RE BELOW THE TWENTY FIFTH — THAT’S TYPICALLY WHEN WE WOULD LOOK AT SOME ADDITIONAL SCREENING WITH THE FAST ASSESSMENT — AND THEN PROGRESS MONITORING OVER THE COURSE OF THE YEAR — FOR THOSE STUDENTS TO TO DETERMINE IF THEY’RE MAKING PROGRESS ON THE SKILLS — THAT THEY’VE. THEY’VE BEEN IDENTIFIED IS STRUGGLING WITH — IN IT MAY BE A SITUATION WHERE WE’RE WE’RE TRYING DIFFERENT INTERVENTIONS TO TRY TO SEE IF THOSE DATA POINTS FOR MOVING. SO IF YOU’RE NOT GOING TO USE THE MAPS AND AS A SCREENER GOING FORWARD IS THAT RIGHT. WE’RE WORRIED NO WE’RE CONTINUING TO USE IT AS A SCREENER WITH ACCOMMODATIONS HOWEVER — IF A STUDENT SCORES POORLY ON THE MAP FOR RECEIVES THE TEXT TO SPEECH ACCOMMODATIO. NOW THAT THEIR FLAG AT THE AT RISK BEFORE THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN AT RISK IF THEY HAD POOR SCORES. WHAT WE WERE CONCERNED ABOUT HIS STUDENTS TO RECEIVE THE ACCOMMODATION AND HAD A WE’RE NO LONGER IN THEIR SCORES WERE HIGH AN S. ON THE TESTS THAT THEY WEREN’T AT RISK? BASED ON JUST THE NUMBER SO WHAT WE’RE SAYING IS IF THEY GET THE ACCOMMODATION WE NEED TO FURTHER ASSESS BECAUSE IT MAY BE THAT THEY’RE STILL READING DEFICIT THAT NEEDS TO BE EXPLORED IN TERMS OF SPECIFIC SKILLS. THAT WAS THE AGREEMENT WE REACH WITH THE STATE DEPARTMENT. MY LAST QUESTION IS SO NINTH GRADE IS OPTIONAL THE RIGHT. ON THE MAP NO LONGER IT’S IT’S IT’S IT’S MANDATED NOW THE LAST YEAR IT WAS OPTIONAL THIS YEAR IT WAS IT WAS MANDATED. IT’S THE ONLY HIGH SCHOOL GRADE CURRENTLY MANDATED WE DO HAVE SOME SCHOOLS THAT HAVE BEEN UTILIZED IN THE TENTH GRADE BUT THAT THAT SOFT THAT’S AT THEIR OWN COST. OKAY THANKS. THANK YOU DR CHANG IS — TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE — IN TWO THOUSAND TWELVE CAN YOU REMIND US WHAT WE WERE DOING THAT I PICK THAT YEAR THAT’S THE ORIGINAL IN THE WAR OTHER THAN THE CALF OF MINISTRATION WERE WE DO AND NOT IN THE PANTHEON OF ASSESSMENT AT THAT TIME. WELL THIS IS MUCH AS I DON’T TRUST MY MEMORY THESE DAYS — THAT BELIEVE WE WERE DOING THAT DISCOVERY AT SS MISTY A ASSESSMENTS AS WERE THE FIRST AND TERM BENCHMARKS THAT WE USED IN THE DISTRICT — AND A THIS IS THAT WAS HALF LEG STARTED TO GIVE US A COMMON LANGUAGE IN TERMS OF HOW STUDENTS WERE PROGRESSING OVER THE COURSE OF THE YEAR TO TO MONITOR PERIODICALLY. PRIOR TO THAT WE HAD A NUMBER OF SCHOOLS THAT WERE USING DIFFERENT BENCHMARKS. AND BECAUSE THEY WERE USING DIFFERENT ASSESSMENTS WE WEREN’T ABLE IS IT IS IT AT THE CENTRAL OFFICE TO SUPPORT THEM IN TERMS OF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OR CONVERSATIONS THAT WE NOW HAVE IT OUR PRINCIPALS MEETINGS AND IN TERMS OF INTERPRETATION OF DATA — DO YOU FEEL LIKE THIS NEW TESTING REGIME IS. IS IS IS IS THE RIGHT. ONE I FEEL VERY GOOD ABOUT THE NW A MAP — WE’LL CONTINUE TO EXPLORE — YOU KNOW OTHER OPTIONS BUT IN A IS IT A YEAR YOU’RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THE RIGHT BALANCE IN TERMS OF PROVIDING TEACHERS INSTRUCTIONAL INFORMATION AND AND THERE’S LIMITATIONS TO WHAT ANY BENCHMARK CAN DO BUT IT. CAN HELP US — IT GIVES US SOME COMPARISON POINTS AT A NATIONAL LEVEL — FOR ONE IN TERMS OF GROWTH AND ACHIEVEMENT BUT IT ALSO GIVES US SOME FAIRLY SPECIFIC DATA AND TERMS IS MASTERY OF STANDARDS — BUT YOU KNOW THEN IF WE SEE DEFICITS THAT’S WHEN WE HAVE TO DRILL DOWN DEEPER THAT — I DO KNOW AND I’VE YOU KNOW I’VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR FOR OVER THREE DECADES NOW IT EITHER THE STATE OR DISTRICT LEVEL — A HE EVEN PRIOR TO COMING TO METRO I KNOW THAT NWEA WAS WAS — VENDOR THAT HAD A VERY GOOD REPUTATION NOT NLY FOR THEIR ASSESSMENTS BUT THE RESEARCH THEY DID AROUND THOSE AND AND WE’VE BEEN VERY PLEASE WITH WITH WHAT WE’VE SEEN THUS FAR. YOU KNOW JUST SAY EDITORIAL COMMENT I NOT ASSESSMENT EXPERT OF COURSE LIKE — GENESIS BUT I DON’T THINK ANY. DISTRICT IN THE STATE IS DOING – THE LEVEL OF CONSISTENT FORMATIVE AND QUALITY FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT THATWE’RE DOING SO I MEAN I THINK THAT’S SOMETHING THE THAT — TOWARDS CELEBRATE TESTING RIGHT BUT AS MUCH AS AS YOU CAN DO THAT I MEAN I THINK WE OUGHT TO BE — TAKE A YOU KNOW. RECOGNIZING THE PROGRESS THAT WE’VE MADE TOWARD BUILDING — BUT BIGGER AND BETTER ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEM AND YOU KNOW THE PEOPLE WHO CLAIM THAT WE DON’T VALUE WAIT YOU KNOW THE DIRECTOR OR WAR OR WHATEVER I MEAN THIS IS ACTUALLY PROOF YOU KNOW THAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING THAT — THE FACT THAT THE SCORE. WE NOW HAVE SOME SOME RELATIVELY GOOD BASELINE DATA GOING BACK TO TWENTY SEVENTEEN TO HELP. US — MAKE DECISIONS IN THE FUTURE AND TO GIVE THE ADMINISTRATION IS DOCTOR TRYING TO SYNDICATED FACULTY — SOME INFORMATION ON ON HOW TO MAKE DECISIONS INSTRUCTIONAL DECISIONS IN THE CLASSROOM SO. I APPRECIATE THE PRESENTATION I APPRECIATE THE BOARD’S HISTORIC. HISTORICAL HOW MUCH WHAT’S WHAT’S THE RIGHT WORD GENTRY STORE TO STORE. IT MEANT OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS TO MOVING — INTO — MORE INTO A SPACE THAT WE’RE NOT RELYING ON POST MORTEM DATA FROM FLAWED STATE STANDARDIZED TESTS BUT WE’RE USING IN OUR OWN DATA THAT’S BEEN COLLECTED YOU KNOW WITH A NATIONALLY. RECOGNIZED INSTRUMENT ON A REGULAR BASIS — TO TO HELP SHAPE THE DECISION MAKING SO I THINK IT’S AGAIN IT’S HARD TO GET EXCITED ABOUT TESTING — JUST LIKE IT’S HARD TO GET EXCITED ABOUT TAXES. AS HARDY SAID ABOUT. WHAT I DO? I DON’T KNOW HOW ANYBODY COULD NOT GET EXCITED ABOUT. FURTHER DENNIS SO CURRENTLY WE LIKE TO INFLICT PAIN ON A STAY ON YOUR SIDE OF THE SCREEN. AND AND I WAS WALKING. I THINK IT’S A BADGER. THANK YOU KNOW TRYING TO START. MY QUESTION IS REGARDING THE ACCOMMODATIONS SO THE MAP ACCOMMODATIONS THAT WE NOW PROVIDER THEY ALSO ME OR WHEN THEY DO THE TEA AND READY THEY ARE THEY ARE THEY ARE THEY SHOULD BE THE SAME ACCOMMODATIONS THAT ARE PROVIDED FOR TEN READY. THEY ARE USED THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR FOR CLASSROOM ASSESSMENT — THE THE ONE EXCEPTION — WITH WITH REGARD TO ACCOMMODATIONS IS IS THE UNIVERSAL SCREENING PROCESS SO NOW THAT IT’S BEEN CORRECTED FOR US. TIME THANK YOU SMALL QUESTION. THE TIME FRAME OF THE TESTING THAT WE ADMINISTER. WITH MAP IN NASHVILLE IS DIFFERENT. AND WHAT IS YOUR LAST ACROSS THE NATION. WE HAD LOTS THANK YOU SPEAK TO THAT FOR YOU IT OVER IT I’D OVERLAP — SO I’LL I’LL I’LL ANSWER THIS WAY BECAUSE AND WE’VE BEEN WORKING. ON SOME PROJECTS WITH OTHER DISTRICTS AND AND AND AND PART IS PART OF DEL FOUNDATION GRANT THAT WE HAVE TO DEVELOP — SOME REPORTS — FOR USE NATIONALLY — AROUND ASSESSMENT DATA AND THERE’S SEVERAL OTHER DISTRICTS AS PART OF THIS PROJECT THE EASE THE MAP. AND I I I THERE’S NO UNIFORMS SCHEDULE IS PRETTY TYPICAL TO TEST IN AUGUST — IDEALLY WE WOULD WE WOULD PROBABLY LOOK AT IN AUGUST IN EITHER DECEMBER OR JANUARY ASSESSMENT AND MY ASSESSMENT IF WE DIDN’T HAVE A STATE ASSESSMENT REQUIREMENT. LIKE MOST DISTRICTS — AND PRETTY MUCH — ALL ALL LARGE DISTRICTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY — WE HAVE TO BALANCE — WITH WITH THE STATE TESTING THAT THAT’S UNDER WAY. SO ALL THAT IS TO SAY WE’RE WE ARE TESTING IN AUGUST AT OUR END IN FEBRUARY — IN A WINDOW THAT ALIGNS WITH THOSE NATIONAL NORMS IN THERE SOME ADJUSTMENT THAT — NWEA LOOKS AT WIN THE NUMBER OF INSTRUCTIONAL WEEKS THAT HAVE GONE ON AND AND WE’RE COMPARED TO DISTRICTS THAT HAVE THE SAME NUMBER OF INSTRUCTIONAL WEEKS. THE ONE AREA WHERE WE ARE TESTING EARLY IS AND THAT NOVEMBER WINDOW. AND IT’S PRETTY MUCH EVENLY SPACED BETWEEN AUGUST AND NOVEMBER NOVEMBER AND FEBRUARY IN TERMS OF INSTRUCTIONAL TIME. AND WE’VE HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH OUR ASSESSMENT COMMITTEE WHICH INCLUDES TEACHERS AND PRINCIPAL. AND IF WE DIDN’T HAVE THE TEN READY WINDOW IN APRIL WE WE WOULD. WE WOULD ADJUST THAT WINDOW BUT WE WANT TO GET RESULTS BACK. IT WE’RE NOT YET ONLY USING THESE FOR MONITORING STUDENT’S PROGRESS IS IT AT THE DISTRICT LEVEL IN SCHOOL LEVEL. BUT FOR TEACHERS TO HAVE DATED TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS AND FOR THEM THAT TIMING TO TO BE ABLE TO GET RESULTS BACK IN MID YEARS HELPFUL. SO THAT’S A LONG WINDED WAY OF SAYING IT’S IT’S THERE’S NOT A SET STANDARD ACROSS THE COUNTRY BUT FOR THE MOST PART WE’RE WE’RE IN THE BALLPARK [inaudible] YOU [inaudible] MOST DISTRICTS. TEST ALSO AT THE END OF THE YEAR [inaudible] APRIL MAY. I DON’T ADD WE WE’VE SPOKEN WITH ARAFAT WE MET WITH NWA YESTERDA. AND I KNOW THAT I KNOW THAT THERE ARE DISTRICTS THAT TEST AT THE END OF THE YEAR — THOSE NUMBERS HAVE DECLINED OVER THE YEARS BECAUSE OF THAT THE SAME SITUATION THAT WE SAW WHEN WE DID THIS IN — TWO THOUSAND SEVENTEEN THERE ARE SCHOOLS THAT LIKE TO HAVE AN END OF YEAR DATA POINT EVEN IF THEY THINK IT MIGHT BE A LITTLE BIT DEFLATED – WE CAN ASK NW A FORD FOR DATA IN TERMS OF SYSTEMS I DON’T I DON’T KNOW ABOUT DISTRICTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY — OTHER THAN — THE ONES THAT WE’VE BEEN IN CONVERSATIONS WITH SOME OF THE SOME OF THE ONES I’VE SPOKEN TO HAVE STOPPED TESTING — BECAUSE THEIR KIDS ARE BASICALLY BURNED OUT AT THE END OF THE YOU KNOW AT THE END OF THE STATE ASSESSMENT. I ALSO KNOW THAT OUR STATE ASSESSMENTS — VARY FROM STATE TO STATE IN TERMS OF THE ALLIANCE AND HOURS ARE YOU KNOW PRETTY COMPREHENSIVE AND I THINK THAT HAS SOME IMPACT. LOADING — I HAVE A QUESTION WHAT KIND OF LITERACY SUPPORT DO WE PROVIDE FOR OUR STUDENTS FROM FIRST TO FIFTH GRADE TO HAVING LITERACY SUPPORT. WELL WE HAVE WE HAVE CUT IN INSTRUCTIONAL COACHES — LOOK THE LTTE **** — THAT THAT WORK IN OUR SCHOOLS IN TERMS OF BUILDING THE CAPACITY WITHIN THE BUILDING — I WOULD PROBABLY DEFERRED — TO TOOK. LEADERSHIP FROM CURRICULUM INSTRUCTION TO GO AND ALL THE DETAILS IN TERMS OF THE SUPPORT- THERE ARE THE UNIT CURRICULAR MATERIALS — INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS THAT ARE PROVIDED — IN TERMS OF CURRICULUM AND AND SUPPORT BUT THE L. T. D. S. — IT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THAT BUILDING HEY COME TOGETHER- I THINK ON A MONTHLY BASIS TO WORK WITH WE WORK IN TEAMS — BY TIER — TWO IT’S FOR TO RECEIVE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND THEN TO WORK WITH INSIDE THEIR SCHOOLS. THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR THE TEACHERS. ARE THEY BEING COACH TO HELP THE STUDENTS THAT ARE. THE LC ESSES WORK DAY THEY RECEIVE INSTRUCTION — AT THE DISTRICT LEVEL IT JOINTLY ONCE A MONTH AND THEN THEY WORK ON A DAILY BASIS WITHIN THEIR BILLINGS WITH WITH TEACHERS. THEY THEY ARE COACHES FOR TEACHERS. THE TEACHERS ARE RESPONSIBLE TO TEACHING AND HELP SUPPORT TO STUDENTS THAT — THAT ARE PERFORMING LOWER LIP IN LITERAC. WELL TEACHERS ARE RESPONSIBLE THEY ALSO HAVE OTHER SUPPORTS INTERN THERE IF IT DEPENDS ON THE SITUATION IN THE BUILDING THERE ARE INTERVENTIONISTS AND OTHERS WHO WORK WITH THE SCHOOL- THAT VARIES FROM BUILDING TO BUILDING AT AND T’S INSTEAD IN SCHOOLS HAVE SOME DISCRETIONARY MONEY IN TERMS OF HOW THEY UTILIZE THAT IN TERMS OF ADDITIONAL SUPPORTS [inaudible] OKAY [inaudible] YOUR QUESTIONS. THANK YOU FOR GIVING US. WHEN I? GO THROUGH — FOR SOME ANNOUNCEMENTS IF ANYONE HAS ANYTHING WE’LL ADJOURN — YOU GUYS WANT TO TAKE A TEN MINUTE BREAK TO THE RESTROOM WASHINGTON STREET WATER AND THEY WILL COME BACK FOR THE MEN [inaudible] BUSH.
