Indicator 1: Percent of students with individualized education programs (IEPs) graduating from high
             school with a regular diploma

Measurement: Four year Cohort Graduation Rate for students entering 9th grade in 2006-07 for the
first time is the rate for students with IEPs graduating with a regular diploma in 2009-10 or earlier.


                                          Measurable and Rigorous State Target

2009-10           80% or more of students with IEPs graduating from high school with a regular diploma
_____ This charter school does not serve students represented within this indicator. (Proceed to
      next indicator.)


   NOTE: All LEAs serving grades represented within this indicator must include improvement
        activities on the CIPP Activities sheet to address students with IEP’s graduating from
        high school with a regular diploma.

   1. LEA met State Target? _____ Yes                 X No (LEA 65.5%)

   2. If the target was not met, complete the following:

           A. Explain the progress or slippage of your LEA toward meeting the State Target for 2009-
              10 school year.

           Students with disabilities have made significant strides toward this goal over the past three years:
           2006-2007-38.9%, 2007-2008-61.5%, and 2008-2009 – 75.9%. However, we noticed a significant
           slippage of approximately 10% during 2009-2010. In examining the data, it appears some of this
           slippage may be due to our decrease in child count numbers. The implementation of the new
           Future Ready Core requirements also played a part in the percentage of our SWD graduating from
           high school with a regular diploma. Also, our county Common Core Assessments have set
           rigorous standards for our students across all grade spans. Although our LEA percentage did not
           meet the state target of 80%, our percentage is higher than the 56% state average.

           The graduation cohort expects graduation within four years. Given the nature of our SWD, some
           students require extended time to complete the graduation requirements. During the 2008-2009
           and 2009-2010 school years, eight SWD continued their education another year. Three of the eight
           students were life skills students who are eligible to continue their education through the age of
           twenty-one; one of these students has since graduated with a certificate of attendance. Of the
           remaining five students, two students have moved, one student graduated with a diploma, one is
           scheduled to graduate this June and one remains actively enrolled.

           We will continue to seek ways to collaborate with general education partners and to implement
           with fidelity school-wide initiatives to support student growth-AVID, PBIS, School Accreditation
           initiatives, and Safe and Civil Schools to name a few.

Revised 4/26/11                                                                                               4
           B. Analyze the LEA activities (listed on the last page) for this target using the CIPP
              Improvement Activity Review Checklist. Summarize the results of the analysis including
              status of implementation.

           Many of the CIPP activities listed on the activities pages were implemented last year with some
           positive results. The data indicates more specific work is needed to address the transition needs of
           our SWD. Although the transition component of the IEP is compliant, it is evident that the
           transition process as a whole needs to be addressed.

           C. Document the action steps for implementing each activity.

           The county will designate a Transition Coordinator to oversee the transition process across the
           county at the secondary level. This coordinator will attend training on the appropriate transition
           process and paperwork to ensure compliance of the process and paperwork. Throughout the year,
           transition files will be pulled randomly and audited for compliance. Any patterns of
           noncompliance evident will be addressed immediately with local training.

           Transition meetings will be held throughout the year to discuss the effectiveness of programming
           (AVID, Inclusion, PBiS, Safe Schools Curriculums, FBA, BIP, etc.) and how these programs
           support effective transitioning for our SWD.

Indicator 2: Percent of students with IEPs dropping out of high school

Measurement: States must report using the dropout data used in the ESEA graduation rate calculation
and follow the timeline established by the Department under the ESEA.

The definition for dropout is an individual who: 1) was enrolled in school at some time during the previous
school year; and 2) was not enrolled at the beginning of the current school year; and 3) has not graduated from
high school or completed a State- or district-approved educational program; and 4) does not meet any of the
following exclusionary conditions: a) transfer to another public school district, private school, or State- or
district-approved educational program (including correctional or health facility programs); b) temporary
absence due to suspension or school-excused illness; or c) death, as reported in North Carolina’s Consolidated
State Performance Report (CSPR) Part I, December 17, 2010.



                                             Measurable and Rigorous State Target

2009-10           5.5% or less is the dropout rate for students with IEPs in grades 9-12.

    _____ This charter school does not serve students represented within this indicator. (Proceed to
          next indicator.)

    NOTE: All LEAs serving grades represented within this indicator must include improvement
          activities on the CIPP Activities sheet to address dropping out of high school.

   1. LEA met State Target?          _____ Yes       X No (LEA 8.5%)

   2. If the target was not met, complete the following:
          A. Explain the progress or slippage of your LEA toward meeting the State Target for 2009-
              10 school year.

                  The dropout rate for students with IEPs in grades 9 – 12 in Currituck County Schools was 8.7%
                  in 08-09 and 8.5% in 09-10. A slight decline in the dropout rate was noted overall. It is
                  important to note that the overall child count of students with disabilities in Currituck County
                  Schools dropped from year to year. Many of our students, who drop out during the school year,
                  re-enroll during the same year and then drop out again. This counts as 2 separate dropouts
                  within the same year.

           B. Analyze the LEA activities (listed on the last page) for this target using the CIPP
              Improvement Activity Review Checklist. Summarize the results of the analysis including
              status of implementation.

                  Currituck County Schools has seen positive results given implementation of many of the CIPP
                  activities listed on the activities pages. The data indicates more specific work is needed to
                  address the transition needs of our SWD. Although the transition component of the IEP is

Indicator 3: Participation and performance of students with IEPs on statewide assessments:
             A. LEA met the State AYP objectives (reading and math) for progress for the disability
                subgroup
             B. Participation rate for students with IEPs
             C. Proficiency rate for students with IEPs

Measurement:
A. LEA met the State’s AYP objectives (reading and math) for progress for the disability subgroup.
B. Participation rate equals the number of students with IEPs in grades assessed divided by the number
  of students with IEPs in that grade, times 100.
C. Proficiency rate equals the number of students with IEPs, scoring level 3 or above in grade assessed,
  divided by the number of students with IEPs assessed in that grade, times 100.

NOTE: All LEAs must include improvement activities on the CIPP Activities sheet to address students’
      with IEPs participation and proficiency rates.

    1. LEA made AYP for students with disabilities?              X    Yes    _____ No

    2. LEA met all state targets for participation and proficiency? ____ Yes              X No

    3. If the target was not met, complete the following for each target NOT met:
            A. Explain the progress or slippage of your LEA toward meeting the State Target(s) for 2009-
               10 school year.

                   Percentage of Participation: Currituck County Schools met the percentage of participation state
                   target rates in all areas with the exception of reading (grades 8 and 10) and math (grades 8 and
                   10). The state target rate is 95 for reading and math. Currituck County Schools had a
                   participation rate of 100% in reading in all grades in 2008-2009. Slippage was evident in 2009-
                   2010 in Currituck County Schools in grades 3, 7, 8 and 10 in the area of reading. Currituck
                   County Schools had a participation rate of 100 % in math in all grades in 2008-2009 with the
                   exception of grade 10 which had a 96.6% participation rate. Slippage was evident in 2009-
                   2010 in Currituck County Schools in grades 3, 7, 8 and 10 in the area of math.

                   Every student enrolled in Currituck County Schools is scheduled to participate in the reading
                   and math assessments at each grade level. The students who do not participate are absent
                   during the initial administration as well as the scheduled make up administration dates.

                   Percentage of Proficiency: Currituck County Schools met the target reading percentage of
                   proficiency for 3rd through 8th grade in 2009-2010. The target reading percentage of

                  proficiency for 10th grade was 38.5%; our students with IEPs in the 10th grade achieved a
                  reading percentage of proficiency of 34.5%, which is slightly below the state target. However,
                  it shows a significant increase from the reading percentage of proficiency of 13.8% in 2008-
                  2009. Currituck County Schools is making significant gains in improving 10th grade reading
                  proficiency rates in an effort to meet state targets established.

                  Currituck County Schools did not meet the state target math percentage of proficiency for 3rd
                  through 8th grade, nor 10th grade. However, significant growth is evident when comparing rates
                  from 2008-2009 with 2009-2010. The percentage of proficiency for 3rd through 8th grade in
                  2008-2009 was 63.61% and in 2009-2010 was 64.81%. The percentage of proficiency for 10th
                  grade in 2008-2009 was 46.4% and in 2009-2010 was 66.7%.

              status of implementation.

                  The CIPP activities listed on the activities pages were implemented and will continue to be
                  implemented in an attempt to reach 95% participation rates. Currituck County Schools gives
                  adequate notice of the assessment schedules and offers make up dates at all grade levels.

                  Currituck County Schools has seen an improvement in proficiency in reading and math at all
                  grade levels given the implementation of the CIPP activities listed on the activities pages. The
                  implementation of these activities will continue.

           C. Document the action steps for implementing each activity.

                  Currituck County Schools notifies parents of upcoming testing via email, Alert Now calls,
                  teacher notes home and school letters home. Individual phone calls are made to notify parents
                  of the need for make up testing when appropriate.

                a school year that is greater than twice the state average rate (<4.3%)
             B. LEA rate of suspensions and expulsions, by race/ethnicity of SWD for greater than 10
                consecutive days in a school year that is greater than twice the state average rate
                (<4.3%); or if the LEA rate indicates a significant discrepancy, by race/ethnicity (>=
                4.3%) the LEA’s policies, procedures or practices do not contribute to the significant
                discrepancy and comply with requirements relating to the development and
                implementation of IEPs, the use of positive behavioral interventions and supports, and
                procedural safeguards.

   1. LEA met State Targets? _____ Yes               X No

   2. If the target(s) was not met, complete the following for each target NOT met:
          A. Explain the progress or slippage of your LEA toward meeting the State Target for 2009-
              10 school year.

                  LEA percentage for Measurement A was slightly below the state target. Our high school
                  follows a block schedule. Students served in one content pull out course will automatically be
                  served in a resource setting. The IEP teams review the student needs at each IEP meeting and
                  base the setting decision on the student needs at that time. We will continue to strive for the
                  meeting student needs within the least restrictive environment.

           B. Analyze the LEA activities (listed on the last page) for this target using the CIPP
              Improvement Activity Review Checklist. Summarize the results of the analysis including
              status of implementation.

                  IEP decisions are made to provide FAPE to students with disabilities. Our target slippage is
                  largely due to a reduction in the number of students receiving special education rather than a
                  philosophical perspective of providing special education in more restrictive settings. With the
                  guidelines for Highly Qualified, inclusive practices have grown during the 2010-2011 school
                  year.

   NOTE: All LEAs serving students represented within this indicator must include improvement
         activities on the CIPP Activities sheet to address improving preschool student outcomes in
         the areas of positive social-emotional skills, acquisition and use of knowledge and skills, and
         use of appropriate behaviors to meet their needs.

   The LEA serving students represented within this indicator must answer the following questions:

   1. What standardized testing instruments(s) are you using as a component of determining entry
      and exit COSF ratings (1-7)?
      Brigance Inventory of Early Development, PEP-3, PLS-4, REEL-3, ELAP, Vineland II

   2. What on-going assessment instrument(s) are you using to determine exit COSF ratings (1-7)?
      Brigance , Creative Curriculum, Teacher developed

   3. How are you collecting parent information?
      Parent needs survey, parent interview during initial home visits or transition meetings and referral
      meetings

   4. How are you collecting observation data?
      Collecting observation data during pre-assessments, during classroom assessments and observations of
      IEP goal planning as well during development of classroom goals. Collaboration with related services
      therapists.

       It is important to note that our all of our preschool students made significant growth within the year.
       Our COSF data reflected honest assessment of their skills in each area when compared to typically
       developing students. Currituck County Schools did not exit any of our students from the special
       education program, as they continued to have significant developmental delays and were in need of
       specialized instruction. Thus, the percentages on summary statement 2 do not adequately reflect the
       individual growth of our students.

   5. Are you using exit COSF ratings from Part C to assist in determining your entrance COSF
      ratings for Part B?
      No, Part C has denied us access to their COSF information. We have requested this information each
      year but without success.

   6. Is COSF training (including refresher training) conducted yearly?
      Yes, twice a year. Once by webinar and once face to face.
