State School Improvement Plans 2016-2017

The General Assembly has finalized the budget and the Governor has signed it into law.  As a part of the budget bill, the General Assembly has made some changes to the definition of a “Low Performing School” and has given some specific guidance and direction to these schools and districts.  As defined in G.S. 115C-105.37: “The State Board of Education shall design and implement a procedure to identify low-performing schools on an annual basis.  Low-performing schools are those that receive a school performance grade of D or F and a school growth score of "met expected growth" or "not met expected growth" as defined by G.S. 115C-83.15.”

The School Performance Grades are based on student achievement (80%) and growth (20%). The indicators and the proficiency standard or benchmark used for achievement include:

1. Annual EOG mathematics and reading assessments in grades 3–8 and science assessments in grades 5 and 8 (Level 3 and above)

2. Annual EOC assessments in Math I, Biology, and English II (Level 3 and above)

3. The percentage of graduates who complete Math III, Algebra II, or Integrated Math III with a passing grade

4. The percentage of grade 11 students who achieve the minimum score required for admission into a constituent institution of The University of North Carolina on The ACT (composite score of 17)

5. The percentage of graduates identified as Career and Technical Education concentrators who meet the Silver Certificate or higher on the ACT WorkKeys assessment

6. The percentage of students who graduate within four years of entering high school (Standard [4-Year] Cohort Graduation Rate)

Bartlett Yancey High School, N.L.Dillard Middle School and Oakwood Elementary School received a school performance grade of D and a school growth status of “not met expected growth” and as low performing schools, are required to develop an improvement plan that specifically addresses how the school will improve both the school performance grade and school growth score.  The plans are included on the Related Documents box above.
