                               COMPREHENSIVE NEEDS ASSESSMENT SUMMARY (Title IA– School-wide)


Canton Independent School District is a rural school district located in Van Zandt County. The district serves nearly 2000 students on four
campuses: Canton Elementary (PK-2), Canton Intermediate (3-5), Canton Jr. High (6-8), and Canton High School (9-12). Canton ISD has been
named an Exemplary District (2009) by the Texas Education Agency.


Canton ISD conducted comprehensive needs assessments in the areas of demographics, student achievement, special programs, curriculum, climate,
staffing, parent and community involvement, and technology. Data reviewed included the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) from the
previous year, 2009 TAKS performance data, PEIMS data for students and special programs, special program evaluations, inventories, surveys,
TPRI, TELPAS, AYP results, staff development records, NCLB reports, and PBMAS results. Anecdotal data from the district leadership team were
also included.


In assessing the data, we found at least three areas of weakness must be addressed. These occur in the areas of student achievement (special
populations), special education, and technology (upgrades, replacements, and enhancements). The results of this assessment are reflected in the
strategy section of the district and campus plans.


Some results of the needs assessment are built into the plan for easy identification. Goal #1 pertains to student mastery of TAKS. Student grades not
meeting the objective mastery level are noted in parenthesis next to each objective. No parenthesis indicates that students met the achievement goal
for that objective. The Ten Components of a School-wide Plan are identified within the strategies as they occur in relation to school-wide campuses:

                              T1A 1.   Comprehensive Needs Assessment
                              T1A 2.   School Reform Strategies
                              T1A 3.   Instruction by Highly Qualified Staff
                              T1A 4.   High-quality and Ongoing Professional Development
                              T1A 5.   Strategies to Attract Highly Qualified Staff
                              T1A 6.   Strategies to Increase Parent Involvement

                            T1A 7. Preschool Transition Strategies
                            T1A 8. Teacher Participation in Assessment Decisions
                            T1A 9. Timely and Additional Assistance to Students Having Difficulty Mastering the Standards
                            T1A 10. Coordination and Integration of Federal, State, and Local Programs and Resources


Campus and district plans were revised according to the result of the current needs assessment. They were approved by site-based committees and
the Board of Trustees.
