Dear Scott Families:
Each year, the state of Colorado looks at the performance of our students on state assessments, and gives each school a rating based on an analysis of those scores. These ratings then determine what kind of improvement plan each school will be assigned. Schools may be required to implement a performance plan, improvement plan, priority improvement plan, or turnaround plan. Performance plans require the least amount of change and turnaround plans require the most dramatic strategies for improvement.
Based on the results, our school is required to develop a priority improvement plan. We met or approached expectations in some areas including academic achievement, academic growth, and math growth gaps. But according to the ranking we did not meet expectations for reading and writing growth gaps. We are in the process of developing a plan to address the areas where we did not meet expectations and will submit a two-year plan to the state by January 15, 2014.
If you would like to have input into the creation of the plan and receive an update on our progress in implementing last year’s plan, please plan to attend a meeting on December 3rd at 6pm in the Scott library. Please RSVP to our front office if you plan to attend this meeting.
