NCLB School Report Cards

posted Mar 29, 2010, 9:04 AM by Dianne Georgantas

We are pleased to enclose our school “report card” for the current year. It contains important information about teacher qualifications, student achievement on Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests, and the progress we are making toward helping all students become proficient in English language arts and mathematics. The information in the report card is divided into three parts:

Part I: Teacher Qualifications
Part II: Student Achievement
Part III: School Accountability

Part I provides information about the qualifications of the teachers in our school and district. Part II summarizes how our school’s students scored in English language arts and mathematics in the last two years of MCAS examinations. Part III indicates whether or not our school is on target to meet the goal of all students reaching proficiency in English language arts and mathematics by 2014, a fundamental goal of the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). In accordance with NCLB, schools that do not make sufficient progress toward this goal are identified for ‘improvement’, ‘corrective action’, or ‘restructuring’.

Our school’s 2009 Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) report shows that:
Blueberry Hill School
has not made AYP for the following subject area and subgroup:    ELA, Special Education subgroup       
Blueberry Hill is identified for
Improvement Year 1, Subgroup

Center School has made AYP for all subject areas and subgroups.   As a result of these determinations, Center Elementary School is not identified for Improvement, Corrective Action or Restructuring.

Wolf Swamp Elementary School has not made AYP for the following subject areas and subgroup:   Mathematics, Improvement Year 1 – subgroup White
As a result of these determinations, Wolf Swamp School is identified for Improvement, Year 1, Subgroup of White population.  This group missed their target score by a tenth of a point. Wolf Swamp met its Improvement Target for the ELA Subgroup of Special Education, but will remain on ELA, Improvement Year 1 – subgroup Special Education until they meet AYP two years in a row. This group made tremendous progress last year. We hope for the same this year!

Glenbrook Middle School has made AYP for all subject areas and subgroups.  As a result of these determinations, Glenbrook Middle School is not identified for Improvement, Corrective Action or Restructuring.

Williams Middle School has made AYP for all subject areas and subgroups.  As a result of these determinations, Williams Middle School is not identified for Improvement, Corrective Action or Restructuring.

Longmeadow High School has made AYP for all subject areas and subgroups.  As a result of these determinations, Longmeadow High School is not identified for Improvement, Corrective Action or Restructuring.
