                     Comprehensive Needs Assessment Summary

        The Lubbock-Cooper Independent School District conducted a yearly
Comprehensive Needs Assessment to determine programs in need of improvement. The
AEIS data, which summarizes academic student performance, attendance rates, and
college entrance exam performance, was a primary source of information in setting goals
and objectives for the 2009-10 school year. In addition, data from the various other
reports listed on the previous page was used to develop the District Improvement Plan.
Each program conducted an annual survey and then evaluated the information obtained
through the surveys in order to identify strengths, weaknesses, and to set goals and
develop strategies to meet them.
        TAKS, AYP, and PMAS data indicated a need to identify strategies to help
students in our special population groups perform at a more successful level. Efforts to
continue to raise scores amongst Hispanic and economically disadvantaged sub-groups
will continue, particularly in the areas of math and science at the secondary level. The
primary focus for academic improvement on all campuses will come in the area of
Special Education. Inclusion and Response to Intervention programs will target Special
Education students so as to raise the level of performance amongst members of this
student group. Early intervention efforts coupled with guidance from Student Support
Teams will be utilized to identify needs for all struggling students early in the school
year, and specific plans for addressing their learning needs will be developed,
implemented, and monitored for growth and progress.
        In order to accomplish these goals, additional staff will be hired to provide the
intervention needed for all students. Professional development will be made available to
target instructional improvement in the areas identified for improvement. Teacher
training in the effective delivery of engaging and differentiated instruction will be a
priority. Furthermore, resources from Title, State Compensatory Funds, grants,
ARI/AMI, OEYP, High School Allotment, and local supplements will be dedicated to
insure that quality academic programs are made available for all students.
        The two year evaluation of the district’s planning and decision-making process
was conducted by the District Advisory Council. Based on the results of this evaluation,
several areas were targeted for improvement, including the following:

                         Providing Quality Academic Programs
                                      Technology
                            Safe and Orderly Environment
                                  Quality Work Force
                                       Facilities
                         Parental and Community Involvement
                               High School Completion

        After analyzing the various data provided in the Comprehensive Needs
Assessment, the Lubbock-Cooper I.S.D. staff has identified the areas that require
improvement, and goals have been set (along with strategies for accomplishing the goals)
in an effort to make improvements in the areas delineated in this plan.
