SELF-REPORTED INDICATORS

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.

SCHOOL-LEVEL FACTORS

Reading Intervention Classes

Using the universal screener Reading Inventory, all students' lexile levels were measured at the beginning of the year (BOY) and the middle of the year (MOY), with the end of year (EOY) testing eliminated due to school closure. Students who were reading two grade levels below or more, were enrolled in a reading intervention class to focus on targeted skills. Our school goal was to have 75% of all eighth graders reading on grade level by the time they left middle school. The results are below: Fifth Grade: BOY - 57%; MOY - 58% Sixth Grade: BOY - 53%; MOY - 59% Seventh Grade: BOY - 60%; MOY - 65% Eighth Grade: BOY - 72%; MOY - 81% Thus, our 8th grade students exceeded our goal of 75% reading on grade level, with 81% being able to do so at the middle of the year.
