Current Goals

  • Academic Gap Goal:

    • By June 2022, we will close the achievement gap between students who have an IEP in Reading and those who do not by decreasing the risk rate on the easyCBM by 10% for Phoneme Segmenting, Word or Passage Fluency, or Vocabulary (goal area is dependent upon grade level risk data).

    Behavior Gap Goal:

    • 50% of our student population has limited or no experience in a school setting, therefore, focusing on our Tier 1 systems is critical. By June 2022, we will reduce our ODR’s from 1,243 during the 18-19 school year, which is equivalent to 5.63 ODR’s/day to 360 or less during the 21-22 school year, which is equivalent to 2 or less ODR’s/day.
