NCLB Reports for AOS #94

  • Dear Parent or Guardian:

    On January 8, 2002, President Bush signed the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 into law. The law calls for sweeping changes in public education. Among these is a new federal requirement that all states and school districts in receipt of Title I funds must issue NCLB “report cards” to parents. The purpose of the report card is to give parents information about their child’s school in terms of academic achievement and the professional qualifications of its teachers. Attached is our school’s most current “report card.” The information is divided into two parts: School Report cards and assessment test results for the New England Common Assessment (NECAP) test, the Maine Educational Assessment (MEA), and the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).

    The School Report cards provide information about the qualifications of the teachers currently working in SAD #46. The information is divided into two parts: (1) the number of core academic classes and (2) the percentage of classes taught by teachers who are highly qualified in the core academic areas such as mathematics, science, reading, history, English language arts, etc. Both pieces of information are intended to help you understand the qualifications of the teachers who are working with your child(ren).

    No Child Left Behind requires that test results for reading and mathematics be reported. The included test information summarizes how SAD #46 did on the fall tests. The data is broken down by grade level, subject area, and the performances of different sub-groups. This information is similar to the data you have received from your child’s school. Now this data has been added together to provide a snapshot of how the students in our schools have performed as a whole.

    The school performance ratings provide information about how well our schools are doing relative to others in the state and to its performance in past years. This system has been set up to comply with the accountability provisions of No Child Left Behind which requires, among other things, that each school make adequate yearly progress (AYP) toward meeting a national goal of all students being “proficient” in mathematics and English by the year 2013-2014.

    In closing, please know that we are prepared to help you further should you have additional questions about what this report card means.

    Sincerely,

    Kevin T. Jordan

    Maine School Administrative District No. 46 Report Card for 2013-2014

    NECAP Performance Data

    The NECAP is a challenging test composed of a combination of multiple-choice questions, written response questions, and essays. It demands students use complex thinking skills to answer questions requiring interpretation, inference, application of concepts, analysis, synthesis, and evaluate information. The test is administered in grades 3-8.

    Ridge View Community School NCLB School Report Card test scores

    It contains important information about teacher qualifications, student achievement on the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) 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 concentrates on:

    Student Achievement on the NECAP

    This report summarizes how our school’s students scored in English language arts and mathematics in October on the NECAP examinations. In accordance with NCLB, schools that do not make sufficient progress toward this goal are identified for ‘improvement’, ‘corrective action’, or ‘restructuring’.

    These findings are an important part of your right to know how well our school is helping all students to reach proficiency in English language arts and mathematics. Schools receiving federal Title I funds that do not make AYP for two consecutive years must allow parents the opportunity to transfer their child to another school in the district that is performing satisfactorily. Schools that have not made AYP for three years in a row–in addition to offering parents the right to choose a new school–must also offer parents a chance to access supplemental educational services for their children. Supplemental services allow eligible children to be tutored after school or participate in classes aimed at boosting academic achievement in English language arts and mathematics.

    We are happy to help you if you have further questions about what this report means. Please feel free to call me directly if I can be of additional assistance to you. A short Question-and-Answer Pamphlet about NCLB Report Cards is also included with this letter.

    Sincerely yours,

    Paula McHugh, Principal

    Dexter Regional High School

    We are pleased to attach here on our website, our school “report card” for the current year.

    It contains important information about teacher qualifications, student achievement on the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) 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: Teacher Qualifications, Student Achievement and School Accountability

    The HQT (highly qualified teacher) report on the website provides information about the qualifications of the teachers in our school and district. The Dexter Regional High School AYP report summarizes how our school’s students scored in English language arts and mathematics in May of 2014 on the SAT examination. The AYP report also 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 Continuous improvement or Monitor status.

    These findings are an important part of your right to know how well our school is helping all students to reach proficiency in English language arts and mathematics. We would be happy to help you if you have further questions about what this report card means. Please feel free to call me directly if I can be of additional assistance to you.

    Sincerely,
