Progress Toward Meeting District 211 Academic Goals

image_pdfimage_print

Throughout the past four years, District 211 Academic Goals are used to evaluate academic progress of students.

The Academic Goals for the 2015-2016 school year were established in 2012 under the Illinois State Board of Education’s (ISBE) Multiple Measures of Accountability.  The goals include defining academic areas of graduation, academic growth, college and career readiness, and proficiency on the critical learning standards.

Though State-required standardized testing has typically been presented, the absence of a clearly defined junior assessment for the Class of 2017 has left a gap in this year’s data.  The Class of 2018 will be assessed using the State-required Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).

Academic Goals are assessed at multiple levels including District, school, course, and subgroup.  This information is used to not only target areas needing improvement, but also as an indicator of success of new interventions.

The Board of Education received a report, including an appendix, and a presentation was made by District administrators summarizing the measures of progress and data specific to the targets toward achieving District goals.  Included in the report were District academic goals for the 2016-2017 school year.
