               Grounding Activity


                     • Form small groups of 3-5 people.

                     • Take turns and speak to certain points

                     • Two rules:

                        • Each person must attend nonverbally to the
                          speaker until they are finished with the questions.

                        • The first person to speak will introduce their group
                          mates and summarize their responses for the
                          large group.

             AYP: How is it measured?
         •     Districts and campuses must meet AYP
               standards on three indicators:
               1. Reading
                     •   Includes BOTH…
                          – Performance (60% in ‟08/67% in „09) AND
                          – Participation (95%)
               2. Mathematics
                     •   Includes BOTH…
                          – Performance (50% in ‟08/58% in ‟09) AND
                          – Participation (95%)

                          3. Other indicator:
                          - Attendance (90% or any improvement) OR
                          - Graduation Rate (70% or any
                             improvement)

         AYP: How does a school get IN (and OUT)
         school improvement?

                     • Two in, two out

                     • A campus that does not make AYP for the
                       SAME indicator (reading, mathematics, or
                       attendance/graduation rate) for TWO
                       CONSECUTIVE YEARS is identified for
                       school improvement.

                     • A campus identified for school improvement
                       must meet AYP for TWO CONSECUTIVE
                       YEARS in the SAME indicator that caused
                       the campus to enter school improvement in
                       order to exit school improvement status.

               50 / 10% / 200 for Student Groups



                     • Campus minimum size is based only
                       on the tested grades at the campus
                       level.

                     • It is important to note that while
                       students within a student group may
                       not meet the minimum size
                       requirement on a campus, these
                       students will affect the minimum size
                       requirements of the district.

        What happens if a SIP school meets AYP
        when the next year‟s results come out?

                     • If a campus meets AYP in the same indicator
                       that caused it to enter a stage of school
                       improvement, the school moves into the second
                       year of the same stage of improvement (Stage
                       1/Year 2, Stage 3/Year 2, etc.) or they exit the
                       program if they‟ve met AYP for the 2nd year in
                       the same indicator.

                        • A 2nd year campus will continue to implement
                          the requirements of the current stage until
                          the campus exits school improvement by
                          meeting AYP for two consecutive years in
                          the same indicator.

  What happens if a SIP school does not meet
  AYP when next year‟s results come out?


                     If the campus does not meet AYP
                         in the same indicator for a
                         second time while in a stage of
                         school improvement, the
                         campus enters into the next
                         stage of school improvement.

• “I did not know what to expect going into this process,
  but I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason,
  and it‟s indeed a huge blessing for me to work with you as
  I look forward to continued growth through your expertise
  and guidance.”
• “As a campus principal, you‟re the BOSS, the person in
  charge, the one providing the leadership and guidance,
  the visionary , the “Go To” person for answers. CAMP
  provides campus principals the opportunity to have a
  mentor to guide them through the difficult issues, help
  identify campus needs, be a friend, and brainstorm ideas
  without the anxiety of being evaluated.”
• “You‟ve helped me grow and develop as a professional,
  and given me opportunities for reflection that I would
  have otherwise not had. My only regret is that I didn‟t
  „know‟ you when I first started as an administrator. I could
  have used some good guidance then!!”

www.esc13.net/sirc
               Corrective Action

                     • Corrective Action is a significant
                       intervention in a campus to remedy
                       the continued inability to make
                       adequate progress toward all
                       students becoming proficient in
                       reading and mathematics.

                     • Identifying a campus for corrective
                       action signals the Local Education
                       Agency’s (LEA) intention to take
                       greater control of the campus’
                       management and to have a more
                       direct hand in its decision-making.

                      • Restructuring is an “extensive
                        intervention” requiring “major

                      • The LEA undertakes a major
                        reorganization of a campus,
                        making fundamental reforms, such
                        as significant changes in the
                        campus’ staffing and governance.
