Schools may choose to describe up to two additional pieces of information about how their school is supporting students. These self-reported indicators are not factored into school accountability calculations but provide the opportunity for schools to highlight successful programs or practices in addition to the indicators included in school accountability.
EQUITABLE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
English Language Development
Last year, 50% of Clayton’s English language learners (ELL) met or exceeded the yearly growth benchmark in comparison to two years ago when less than 10% of ELL students met the same indicator. Classes were structured to support English Language Learners as they acquired the academic and language skills necessary to excel. From culturally-relevant curriculum to our varied after-school opportunities, all Clayton students are invited to extend their learning and success into their new secondary experiences.
Curriculum and Assessment & Performance Results
The 2019-2020 school year is the second year of the three year implementation of the Curriculum and Assessment & Performance Result. Since August teachers have participated in professional development to development and implement strategies to help students become Complex Thinkers and Problem Solvers, Contributors to the Community, Self-Directed Learners, Corporative Group Participants, Effective Communicators, and Quality Workers and Producers. The primary focus this year is processes and procedures that support the 6 performance results, and empowering students to be owners of their own education. This consistency and focus in every classroom will build of foundation of relevant and engaging student learning.
