					School Name: High Point Central High School Guilford County Schools 2008-2011 School Improvement Plan Vision Statement

Mission Statement: The community, parents, faculty, and students work as a family to provide motivation, communication, and opportunities to enhance success. Each member of the family interacts with each other with respect, integrity, and compassion. The faculty and staff recognize that all students can learn, but not all students learn in the same way and at the same rate. High Point Central provides opportunities for different learning styles in a structured and supportive environment. The students accept responsibility for becoming successful learners and citizens. Those leaving High Point Central are provided the skills necessary to function effectively and competitively in a global society.

Vision Statement: High Point Central prepares all students to be high achieving, ethical, and productive citizens of the global community.

Self Assessment
Current AYP Status: Not Made Current ABC Status: Expected Growth

High Point Central is eighty-one years old and today we represent forty two nationalities. We continue to evolve and change with the times. One of High Point Central strengths is our racially diverse student population with all socio-economic levels represented. Our school is a microcosm of the world. This diversity not only lends credibility to our International Baccalaureate program, but it also encourages all of our students to develop into productive citizens who are prepared to take active roles in the global community. Our annual Cultural Fair also exposes our student population to this diversity, which enables them to interact with each other with integrity and compassion. High Point Central is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our diverse student population. We offer College Prep, Honors, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate level courses that are available to any interested student. Central also offers courses of study for exceptional children, ESOL students, and students pursuing Career Technical fields. In addition to these prescribed courses of study, Central also offers a variety of electives, including ROTC, Early Childhood Education, the Cultural Arts, and Sports Medicine to name a few. Over the course of the last three years, our faculty has become a data-driven instructional team that strives to use the knowledge gained from assessments to differentiate instruction and meet the needs of all students. Evidence of our datadriven culture is our after-school tutoring, Saturday Academy, and re-teach/retest program. We do all of this not just to improve grades, but to give students the opportunity to gain mastery in all of their subjects. High Point Central is constantly looking to improve to the point that we are “second to none”

Goals, Strategies, Monitoring and Budget

QUARTERLY ACTION PLAN Quarter 1
1. What does the data tell us? The data tells us that there has been a one year trend of declining attendance rates. 2. Not tell us? It does not tell us the reason for attendance (coding) or causes of absence. It does not tell us which periods students are absence (ADA). We also do not know the accuracy rate of teacher attendance-taking. 3. OFIs? We see the possibility of targeting attendance in November and December.
OFIs: Opportunities For Improvement

Data analysis: (SWOT) analysis

Identify Key Strategy (Approach)

5. Next step? To further collect and analyze data to identify tactics to improve overall school attendance. Step 1-Collect and analyze data from 2005 through 2008 (specifically grade level, ethnicity and subgroup data to complete our SWOT). Step 2-Identify students with high absence rates using collaboration between SIMS Management, Dropout Prevention Officer. Step 3-Create a student and parent survey to determine reasons for student absences.

5. Next step? We did experience success during our first quarter. Attendance had improved from last year. We need to continue our progress by: Step 1 – Forming a partnership with CIS to identify students with attendance issues. Set up a program with CIS to mentor and assist these kids. Step 2 – Make students and staff more aware of the attendance competition.

5. Next step? (revise key strategy as needed to address identified OFIs) Once again, High Point Central showed growth in attendance during this quarter. We will continue implementing our previous strategies and add the following: Step 1 – Make publicity and advertising a priority for promoting attendance. We will do this through TV announcements, school website, and afternoon school announcements. We will also hold a poster contest during BBT to promote attendance. These will be displayed throughout the school. Step 2 – Meet with staff to increase the use of support staff for attendance issues.

5. Next step? (revise key strategy as needed to address identified OFIs) High Point Central has continued to show growth even though our attendance was down. We recognized that inclement weather was part of the reason. We will continue doing each of the strategies that have been used each quarter because we believe they have been successful.

5. Next step? (revise key strategy as needed to address identified OFIs)

5. Use data to identify students who have not met promotion requirements. Use promotion data to create mentor groups for students with similar needs.

5. Next step? (revise key strategy as needed to address identified OFIs) We experienced success with our first goal. We must look at individual data to ensure we are not missing any student in order to increase our graduation rate.

5. Next step? (revise key strategy as needed to address identified OFIs) We did experience success again in the past quarter. We must continue to monitor students who are required to need the last 4 credits in order to graduate.

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: High Point Central - 406 Requests for Waiver Describe the waiver you are requesting. Identify the law, regulation or policy from which an exemption is requested.
NC General Section 115C-301 © Maximum Class size and NC General Statutes Section 115C-301 (d) Maximum Teaching Load

1. 2.

We are requesting a class size waiver. Exceptions are sought for ninth grade classes (29) and tenth – twelfth grade classes (32).

3.

State how the waiver will be used.
The waiver will be used to provide appropriate courses for students who fall short of local promotion standards. It will also be used to more appropriately schedule students who move into our district after the first 10 days of school. Finally, the waiver would be used as a last resort to accommodate students who need a class for graduation.

4.

State how the waiver will promote achievement of performance goals.
The waiver would promote achievement of performance goals by guaranteeing that 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 skill groups and classes.
