2605 - PROGRAM ACCOUNTABILITY AND EVALUATION

The Board of Education believes that effective education includes proper evaluation of the results produced from the educational resources provided by the community and the government. As the governing body of the County Schools, the Board has the responsibility for assessing how well goals are being accomplished.

The Board shall fulfill this responsibility by establishing a means for the continued evaluation of results which shall be systematic and specific.

The following goals from West Virginia’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Request will guide accountability for the District and its schools.

 

A.

By 2020, all schools will meet their West Virginia Accountability Index target, comprising proficiency rates, performance of the bottom twenty-five percent (25%) of students, student growth, and attendance or graduation rates.

     
 

B.

By 2020, at least seventy-five percent (75%) of all students will become proficient in mathematics and English language arts.

     
 

C.

All students will be taught by highly qualified teachers.

     
 

D.

All students will be educated in learning environments that are safe, drug free, and conducive to learning.

     
 

E.

By 2020, at least eighty-five percent (85%) of all students will graduate from high school within four years of enrolling in grade 9 and at least eighty-seven and a half percent (87.5%) of all students will graduate from high school within five years of enrolling in grade 9.

A single system of accountability will be applied to the District and its schools as per West Virginia State Board of Education policy 2320, A Process for Improving Education: Performance Based Accreditation System.

The Superintendent shall recommend improvements in the educational program annually, based on County evaluation of assessment data.

Assessment results obtained under this policy shall not be used for comparison purposes except as required by statute and State Department of Education regulations or as authorized by the Superintendent or the Board.
