              Class Size Reduction Reporting

 Monitoring of class size reduction is based
  on Average Daily Enrollment

                                                 Average
                                               = Daily
Cumulative Number of                            Enrollment
  Students Enrolled    Number of Days in the
                         Reporting Period

      Similar to reporting done for
        • K-3 CSR
        • Morgan-Hart CSR
                        35
         Class Size Reduction Reporting

But there are some unique attributes to
 QEIA
   Applies to core subjects at middle and high
    school
   Targets vary by grade level




                      36
         Class Size Reduction Reporting

Cumulative Number of Days Enrolled
   Grades K-8: Beginning of the school year
    through April 15
   Grade 9-12: Entire school year as put into
    units of “months of instruction”
    • First month of the school year or from the
      first month that a new class was created to
      the last month ending on or before June 30


                      37
         Class Size Reduction Reporting

Grades K-8 Reporting Steps:
   Collect total enrollment by day for all
    classrooms within the grade level from first
    day of school until April 15
    • For combination classes, the grade level
      with most number of students becomes the
      grade level of the class for QEIA purposes




                      38
         Class Size Reduction Reporting

Grades K-8 Reporting Steps:
   Sum the active daily enrollments and
    divide the sum by the total number of class
    days through April 15.
   The result is the average class size for the
    class for the year.




                      39
        Class Size Reduction Monitoring

Grades 9-12 Reporting
   This is more complicated because there
    are usually more multi-grade level classes
   Grade levels by core subjects have
    different targets
   Different types of scheduling options –
    such as block schedules and courses
    spanning less than the full year


                      40
           Class Size Reduction Monitoring

 Grades 9-12 Reporting Steps
     For each core course class within each
      grade level
      •   Calculate Active Monthly Enrollment
          – Cumulative number of students enrolled each
            day divided by the number of instructional
            days in the month




                          41
         Class Size Reduction Monitoring

 Grades 9-12 Reporting Special
  Circumstances
     Partial Year Course: When calculating
      active monthly enrollment adjust the
      number of instructional days if period is
      less than one month or a partial month




                       42
         Class Size Reduction Reporting

Elective Courses
   Non-core courses may not exceed the
    ratio from 2005-06 (Monitoring will begin
    in 2010-11)




                     43
         Class Size Reduction Reporting

District Student Information Systems

   Capable of providing class size reports for
    average daily enrollments
   The Assistance Centers will be collecting
    and distributing information about how to
    use your student information system to
    produce necessary data

Monitoring at the end of 2008 - 09:
   Substantially Met
    • 2 points – at least 1/3 of the way in
      meeting CSR requirement
    • 1 point – at least 1/6 of the way in
      meeting the CSR requirement
    • 0 points – less than 1/6 of the way in
      meeting the CSR requirement

                             Monitoring

Unique Scenarios:
   The school reduced class size during
    2005-06 using High Priority Grant
    funds. As a result, QEIA CSR targets
    have resulted in very low QEIA CSR
    targets.

                               Monitoring

Unique Scenarios:
   The school was reconfigured in the
    base year and added 6th grade. As a
    result, the CSR target for 6th grade is
    very low.

                              Monitoring

Due to the complexity of CSR
 requirements it is essential to:
   Schedule Pre-Monitoring meetings with
    districts and schools to establish CSR
    target agreements
   Provide assistance with interim
    benchmarks and implementation plan
   Provide information regarding required
    end of year documentation
