Self Assessment
Current AYP Status: Not Met (13 out of 17 met) Current ABC Status: Did not achieve expected or high growth.

Southeast Guilford High School is located in a primarily rural area on the outskirts of Greensboro, North Carolina. SEHS has a increasingly diverse population of students. Though student achievement has decreased incrementally over the last four to five years, SEHS continues to produce students who are ready to attend college and be successful in the career of their choice. The 2008 – 2009 school year is the first full year as principal for Ralph Kitley at SEHS. SEHS faces some challenges as a net total of 8 teaching positions were lost from 2007 – 2008. Two new positions were added (2nd art position and 2nd agriculture position) to give students more choices, and to increase the ability for students to become connected to their school. In addition, a 3rd assistant principal position was created to help administrators be more pro-active and to help nurture the overall climate of the school. In 2007-2008 SEHS had the highest graduation rate in North Carolina amongst schools with a 9th grade cohort class of 300 – 399 students. Also, the number of students scoring proficient on the N.C. Writing Test rose 19 percentage points. Achievement for AfricanAmerican students rose 27.7 points, and Students with Disabilities rose 32.2 points. We are focusing on a commitment to enhance our Professional Learning Community by meeting weekly with PLC’s (by EOC) being held with the curriculum facilitator. Within these groups we plan to utilize Achievement Series data (from benchmarks) to facilitate the instructional program.

Current NCLB Status: Not Met (13 out of 17)

Current ABC Status:

Overall SMART Goal: Your overall goal will reflect a two to three year long-range goal

Plan

By 2011 SEHS will increase the Proficiency Composite 17 percentage points from 53% proficient to 70% proficient as measured by EOC test results.
Target SMART Goal/Measure: (Selection of a school wide goal must be based upon academic or operational need and must be supported by data. State clearly how
academic goal will provide for accelerated learning for students at risk of not meeting standards or making AYP. Any school missing AYP as a result of EC, LEP or ED populations must have a goal representing these groups.)

By 2009 SEHS will increase Algebra I proficiency 10 percentage points from 30% proficient to 40% proficient as measured by Benchmark/Achievement Series data and EOC results.

Celebrations Alg. I scores increased 9 percentage points from '07 to '08

Quarter 2 1.What does the data tell us? After Benchmark #1, Algebra I scores at SEHS still fell below the county mean. The data also tells us that class 5 scored higher than the county mean on all goals tested. Therefore, the teacher of class 5 should share successful strategies for student achievement. 2. What does the data not tell us? The data does not indicate specific student achievement, grade level, and lost instructional time due to tardies and attendance. 3.Celebrations Teachers are beginning to use common grading practices. They are using data to reteach and remediate.

Quarter 3 1.What does the data tell us? After Semester 1, Algebra I scores at SEHS fell to 22.3%. 2. What does the data not tell us? The data does not indicate valueadded or projected achievement levels of those who were not proficient. 3.Celebrations - Teachers are beginning to use common grading practices. They are using data to reteach and remediate. - 50% of the students who failed the EOC are attending a 10 hour remediation program before retesting.

Quarter 4 1.What does the data tell us? After Benchmark #2, Algebra I scores still fell below the county mean. 2. What does the data not tell us? The data does not indicate specific student achievement, grade level, and lost instructional time due to tardies and attendance. 3.Celebrations - Our 2 Algebra teachers meet weekly to plan. - Teachers are beginning to use common grading practices.

Date: September 24, 2008

Overall SMART Goal: Your overall goal will reflect a two to three year long-range goal

By 2011 SEHS will increase the Proficiency Composite 17 percentage points from 53% proficient to 70% proficient as measured by EOC test results.
Target SMART Goal/Measure: (Selection of a school wide goal must be based upon academic or operational need and must be supported by data. State clearly how
academic goal will provide for accelerated learning for students at risk of not meeting standards or making AYP. Any school missing AYP as a result of EC, LEP or ED populations must have a goal representing these groups.)

Plan

By 2009 SEHS will increase U.S. History proficiency 10 percentage points from 58% proficient to 68% proficient as measured by Benchmark/Achievement Series data and EOC results.

1.What does the data tell us? In 2006, SEHS was at 58% proficient in U.S. History. In '07 rose to 63%, and in '08, proficiency was down to 58%. However, AA proficiency was 43%. 2.What does the data not tell us? The data does not indicate specific student achievement, grade level, effect of teacher turnover, and lost instructional time due to tardies and attendance.

1.What does the data tell us? After Benchmark #1, US History students at SEHS scored below the county mean in 7 of the 12 goals tested. The data also tells us that class 4 scored higher than the county mean on all goals tested. Therefore, the teacher of class 4 should share successful strategies for student achievement. 2. What does the data not tell us? The data does not indicate specific student achievement, grade level, and lost instructional time due to tardies and attendance. 3.Celebrations Teachers are beginning to use common grading practices. They are using data to reteach and remediate.

1.What does the data tell us? After Semester 1, US History scores rose to 66.9%. 2. What does the data not tell us? The data does not indicate valueadded or projected achievement levels of those who were not proficient. 3.Celebrations - Teachers are beginning to use common grading practices. They are using data to reteach and remediate. - 50% of the students who failed the EOC are attending a 10 hour remediation program before retesting.

1.What does the data tell us? After Benchmark #1, US History scores rose above the county mean. SEHS Benchmark scores (67.6) and county mean (61.2) 2. What does the data not tell us? The data does not indicate valueadded or projected achievement levels of those who were not proficient. 3.Celebrations - Teachers are continuing to use common grading practices.

School Year:

2008-09

Quarter: Current ABC Status:

One

Date: September 24, 2008

Overall SMART Goal: Your overall goal will reflect a two to three year long-range goal

Plan Study

By 2011 95% of the staff will rate the working conditions at SEHS as satisfactory or higher according to the Teacher's Working Conditions Survey.
Target SMART Goal/Measure: (Selection of a school wide goal must be based upon academic or operational need and must be supported by data. State clearly how
academic goal will provide for accelerated learning for students at risk of not meeting standards or making AYP. Any school missing AYP as a result of EC, LEP or ED populations must have a goal representing these groups.)

Southeast Guilford High School will improve the results on the “collaboration,” “duties,” and “decision making” domains to well above the state average by the end of the 2008-09 school year.
Insert (or attach) data table to support the selection of the above stated the overall SMART Goal and Target SMART Goal

58% of teachers say they do not have time to collaborate. 60% of teachers say they are not protected from duties that interfere with their essential role of educating students 54% of teachers say they are not involved in decision making about educational issues Only 31% of staff knows that members of the SIP team are elected. Only 35% of staff believe that School Leadership consistently enforces rules for student conduct

Page 29 of 45

Data analysis:
(SWOT) analysis

Quarter 1 1.What does the data tell us? Teachers need time to collaborate and establish standard pacing guides that align to the curriculum. Over half of those who completed the survey feel as if they have no voice in the decision making process of the school. 60% feel as if teaching takes a back seat to school duty responsibilities. 2.What does the data not tell us? The data does not address the specific needs of the staff or why they rated these areas so low.

Quarter 2 No data was collected over the course of the first quarter. Focus was placed on opening the doors of communication and providing staff development centered on collaboration and raising expectations. Celebrations: Faculty morale is higher and school climate is positive.

Quarter 3 No data was collected at the end of the 1st semester, although PLC minutes indicate a rise in faculty morale. Teachers are utilizing the CF for advice on classroom management and cooperative learning exercises. The number of tutorials offered by teachers has increased, indicating teacher dedication to student achievement. Staff attendance is also up. Celebrations: Faculty morale is higher and school climate is positive. Overall student achievement is rising.

Study

Quarter 4 Although no data was collected, staff attendance continues to rise, teacher morale is higher, and teachers continue to be more visible in the hallways. Many teachers are team teaching and classrooms are lively and conducive to learning. Teachers are conducting more parent/student conferences. They are buying in to PLCs and see the benefits of collaboration. Celebrations: Faculty morale is higher and school climate continues to be positive. Overall student achievement is rising. Student attendance is rising. Leadership team meetings are focusing less on compliance issues and more on student achievement.

Summer Based on analysis from the previous quarter, adjust strategy and deployment plan as needed.

The team, along with administration, addresses these issues and reports back to the faculty at monthly meetings Weekly PLCs address the needs for collaboration. Staff responded positively to PLC implementation during the first quarter. CF still attends meetings although teachers have begun to facilitate their own meetings. They are taking ownership of the process. PLC will begin to address more complex issues this quarter. Continue staff development efforts to build relationships outside the four walls of the classroom. Focus staff development on staff relations (we can maintain high expectations while building positive relationships). Continue monthly barometer meetings with Mr. Kitley. Continue to celebrate teacher accomplishments in faculty meetings and in-house staff development. Implement Best Practices at each meeting. Continue to recognize exemplary teaching with “Apple” presentations at monthly faculty meetings. Devise and implement an in-house survey to monitor progress

Staff responded positively to PLC implementation during the first quarter. CF still attends meetings although teachers have begun to facilitate their own meetings. They are taking ownership of the process. PLC will begin to address more complex issues this quarter. Continue staff development efforts to build relationships outside the four walls of the classroom. Focus staff development on staff relations (we can maintain high expectations while building positive relationships). Continue monthly barometer meetings with Mr. Kitley. Continue to celebrate teacher accomplishments in faculty meetings and in-house staff development. Implement Best Practices at each meeting. Continue to recognize exemplary teaching with “Apple” presentations at monthly faculty meetings. Devise and implement an in-house survey to monitor progress Every other month, faculty meetings will be held during planning periods. The smaller setting allows teachers to ask more questions, voice more concerns, and be more focused. The experience builds a strong sense of community.

Waiver Requests
School-Based Management and Accountability Program School-Based Waiver Request for 2008-2011 LEA: Guilford County LEA Code: 410

School Code/School Name:547 – Southeast Guilford High School Requests for Waiver 1. Describe the waiver you are requesting. We are requesting a class size waiver. Exceptions are sought for 9th grade classes (29) and 10th – 12th (32). 2. Identify the law, regulation or policy from which an exemption is requested. N.C. General Statute Section 115C-301(c). Maximum class size and N.C. General Statute Section 115C-301(d). Maximum teaching load. 3. State how the waiver will be used. The waiver will be used to provide appropriate courses for students that fall short of local promotion standards. It will also be used to more appropriately schedule students that move into our district after the first 10 days of school. Finally, the waiver will be used for students who need a class for graduation and the only way to get the class would be to use the flexibility for class size. 4. State how the waiver will promote achievement of performance goals. The waiver would promote achievement of performance goals by guaranteeing appropriate courses and levels of courses are available for students in emergency situations. More effective teaching and learning will occur as the schools are able to operate the master schedule with fluidity moving students in and out of skilled groups and classes.
