can increase through effective parental involvement.

       Narrative Statements from Data Carousel Fall 2005
    Why should we move in this direction?

Majority of staff strongly disagree that they communicate with
parents often.

            Narrative Statements from Data Carousel Fall 2005
       Why should we move in
           this direction?
Improvement to student
      portfolios…
The portfolio was poorly organized & I didn't
always know what was going in to my portfolio.
It was difficult to organize because I didn't
have access to it before my senior year.

        Comment from 2006 Senior Exit Survey
       Why should we move in
           this direction?
Improvement to student
      portfolios

I did not like the portfolio projects... they did
not help me in any way to plan for my future.


         Comments from 2006 Senior Exit Survey
         Why should we move in
             this direction?

 Improvement to student
       portfolios
I never really worked on my portfolio to my
best of my abilities, and it did not mean much
to me so I couldn’t tell you what worked well or
what should be changed.


   Comments from 2006 Senior Exit Survey
         Why should we move in
             this direction?
 Improvement to student
       portfolios…


I barely ever used my portfolio. I also probably
won't really ever use it anyway.

        Comments from 2006 Senior Exit Survey
           Why should we move in
               this direction?
    Culture of poverty…

“In practical terms, because children living in
 persistent poverty appear to be at greater risk for
 serious academic failure, their potential
 contribution to society remains limited.”

     From Ruby Payne’s A Framework
             for Understanding Poverty
           Why should we move in
               this direction?

  Culture of poverty…

50.8% of MBHS receive free or reduced lunch



(Most recent data from 2004-2005 school year)
 Why should we move in this direction?

Parent Connections…

On average 30-35% of our parents come to parent
 conferences.
       (data collected from last few years of conferences)


Remember…. Schools using SLC’s are averaging
over 80% parent participation
         Why should we move in
             this direction?
Student goals & post-
 high school choices….

What are our kids doing after high school?
