ESEA Flexibility Waiver Request - Salt Lake City School District

Report
Implications for
Salt Lake City School District
August 7th 2012
Utah Comprehensive Accountability System (UCAS)
• One accountability system (Utah Comprehensive Assessment System)
• No more AYP
- No requirement for 100% proficiency 2014
• No Schools/Districts in program improvement (Priority or Focus)
All NCLB requirements not addressed in the 2012 waiver are still in
place
• More flexibility in use of Title I School Improvement funds
• New Utah Comprehensive Assessment System meets federal and
state requirements:
- Growth and proficiency
- Focus on below proficient students
2
• Adoption of the new Utah Core Standards for English language
arts and mathematics
• Adoption of a new comprehensive assessment system which will
measure the full breadth and depth of the Utah Core Standards
using computer based adaptive testing
• Focused student performance outcomes targeted at ensuring all
students are college, career, and citizenship ready
• Adoption of the WIDA English language proficiency standards
to assist educators to ensure that instruction supports English
language learners in the acquisition of English
Utah Comprehensive Accountability System (UCAS)
• Incorporates both student achievement and growth
toward improvement in a composite score for each
school
• Annual public reports will provide summary data for
the entire school, as well as disaggregated results by
ethnicity, and for economically disadvantaged, English
language learners, and students with disabilities
• Meeting standards (proficiency) and improving academic achievement
(growth) are BOTH valued
• All schools, including those that serve traditionally low performing
students, should have an opportunity to demonstrate success
• The system should include strong incentives for schools to improve
achievement for the lowest performing students
• Growth expectations for below proficient students should be linked to
attaining proficiency
• Growth expectations for all students, including students above
proficiency, should be appropriately challenging and meaningful
• Clear and understandable to stakeholders

Measures all students who passed the assessment (proficiency)
Measures how much students progressed from one year to the next
• Compute an SGP for each year a student has an assessment scale
score:
• Identify a student scale score for all past years where a score
exists for that student
• Determine the academic peer group (all students in the state
with the “same” scale scores for all of the same years) for each
student
• Determine how performance in the current year compares with
that of the student’s peer group to produce a growth percentile

The long term goal is for schools to earn a minimum of 480 points for elementary schools
and 470 for high schools which is approximately the 75th percentile for schools across the
state. Accordingly, the targets would be set on reducing the gap between a schools current
score and the target score by half in six years:
Northview 2012 score = 405
480-405= 75 (1/2 of 75=37.5)
405+ 37.5= 442.5 by 2017

Federal Requirement to establish and report AMOs
Utah’s Minimum Compliance Plan
• AMOs are not used in any UCAS calculation
• AMO trajectory will reduce in half the percent of non-proficient over six years
• AMOs will be established separately for each subgroup at each school
• UCAS reporting will list the AMO and performance of each school subgroup
• AMO reporting page will be a drill down page in the UCAS report
• AMOs will be used in identifying and exiting Focus/Priority schools
• AMOs will be based on the percent of students achieving proficiency on the
states Criterion-Referenced Tests (CRTs) separately in English language arts
and mathematics
• ELA: CRT results in grades 3-8 and 10 are used to determine the percent of
students proficient
• Mathematics: results are based on CRTs in grades 3-6 and in the course
appropriate CRT thereafter which includes 7th grade math or 8th grade
math. High schools will be determined by calculating the percent of 10th
grade students who scored proficient on the secondary math 1 in 10th grade
year or a prior year
• Results from the Utah Alternative Assessment (UAA) are included for students
with significant cognitive disabilities approved to participate in this
assessment

• UCAS reporting through the Public School Data Gateway on the USOE Website
• Salt Lake City School District will also report this data.
• SLCSD will also be creating school reports focusing on
school and subgroup growth targets
• Drillable school reports that will include achievement gap data that could be used in
school improvement plans
• Individual student growth reports with trajectory to proficiency
• Subgroup disaggregated data

Focus Schools: USOE will identify a minimum of 28 focus schools,10% of lowest
scoring Title I schools not already identified as a priority. Two year average UCAS
score, or not achieving AMOs for two years. These schools will be considered in
improvement and receive $100,000 to fulfill Title I improvement requirements.
Priority Schools: already identified using previous 4 years of data through the
School Improvement Grant (SIG schools) 15 schools statewide
0 pts.
Old Title I Accountability System
• Utah will no longer use AYP
determinations for Title I
accountability
• Current Title I school and district
improvement requirements have
been eliminated through the
approved ESEA Flexibility Waiver
• Title I schools identified in need of
improvement for 2011-2012 will:
• Retain current Title I school
improvement grants through 201213
• Be evaluated for Focus School
eligibility
New Title I Accountability System
• Utah will use the new UCAS
accountability system to identify:
• Priority Schools
• Focus Schools
• Reward Schools
• The Title I requirements of setting
aside Title I funds for school
improvement sanctions are
removed:
• Transportation associated with
public school choice
• Supplemental Educational Services
(SES)
NOTE: This is allowed under the ESEA Flexibility Waiver Request Guidance and will
allow Utah to maintain continuity in funding and service to those schools. All of
these schools have already initiated one of the federally-mandated, rigorous,
turnaround strategies that are required of Priority Schools.
Exit Criteria Priority Schools:
To exit Priority School status, the school must achieve
• a two year composite CAS score of at least 320
or
• a two year composite CAS score that is at least the 15th percentile of Title I
schools (Priority) 25th percentile (focus)
or
• two year meeting of AMOs and/or significant decreases in achievement gaps
Depending on what the school was identified for-
The USOE will annually recognize two categories of Title I Reward
Schools, High-performing and High-progress. These schools will be
recognized through:
•
•
•
•
a press release
certificate of achievement
letter to the LEA superintendent or charter leader
letter to the building principal to be shared with the school community
High-performing Title I Schools
Schools will be identified based
on highest levels of achievement
and above average
performance on growth
High-progress Title I Schools
Schools will be identified
based on highest levels of
growth and above average
performance on achievement
• Full academic year (FAY) unchanged
• Minimum N
• Achievement/Growth =10
• Participation =40
• Schools must have data for all components to receive a report
(no growth scores = no report)
November 1 (estimated)
Accountability Information Report posted on USOE webpage
UCAS/UPASS reports posted on USOE Gateway
1. Will schools/districts get an AYP report?
No. There will be no Yes or No designation for schools or districts. The UCAS report will
show total school points.
2. How will AMAO #3 be calculated?
It is anticipated AMAO #3 will be calculated based on the LEA EL subgroup AMO score.
We are awaiting clarification from the department of education on this issue.
3. Is there an appeal process?
See 2012 Accountability Timeline for detailed explanation
4. When will Priority, Focus and Reward schools be announced?
It is anticipated that the USOE will announce Title I Focus and Reward Schools 30 days
after CAS results are made available to LEAs.
5. What specific waivers of ESEA requirements did Utah receive from the U.S. Department
of Education?
