FLEXIBILITY TO IMPROVE STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
AND INCREASE THE QUALITY OF INSTRUCTION
Implementation of School Improvement Requirements
– Flexibility from requirement for school districts to identify or take
improvement actions for schools identified for improvement, corrective
action, or restructuring
– Eliminates Public School Choice (PSC) as a mandate
– Eliminates Supplemental Educational Services (SES) as a mandate
– Eliminates the 20% district Title I set aside to fund PSC and SES
– Eliminates the 10% set aside for professional development for schools
7
WHAT DOES ESEA FLEXIBILITY REQUIRE
FROM STATES?
1. Ensure college- and career-ready expectations for all students
in Washington
– Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Smarter Balanced
Assessment Consortium (SBAC)
2. Implement state-developed system of differentiated
recognition, accountability, and support
3. Support effective instruction and leadership in Washington—
Teacher and Principal Evaluation Project (TPEP)
4. Reduce duplication and unnecessary burden on school
districts by the state
8
PRINCIPLE 1: COLLEGE- AND CAREER-READY
EXPECTATIONS FOR ALL STUDENTS
To support States in continuing the work of transitioning students, teachers,
and schools to higher standards
• Adopt college- and career-ready (CCR) standards in at least
reading/language arts and mathematics
• Transition to and implement CCR standards
• Develop and administer Statewide, aligned, high-quality
assessments that measure student growth
• Adopt English Language Proficiency (ELP) standards
corresponding to the State’s new CCR standards and develop
aligned assessments
9
PRINCIPLE 2: STATE-DEVELOPED DIFFERENTIATED
RECOGNITION, ACCOUNTABILITY, AND SUPPORT
To support states’ efforts to move forward with next-generation accountability systems
• Set ambitious but achievable Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs)
• Reward schools: Provide incentives and recognition for high-progress
and highest performing Title I schools
• Priority schools: Identify lowest performing schools and implement
interventions aligned with the turnaround principles
• Focus schools: Close achievement gaps by identifying and implementing
interventions in schools with the greatest achievement gaps or low
graduation rates
• Provide incentives and supports for other Title I schools (Emerging
Schools)
• Build State Education Agency (SEA), Local Education Agency (LEA), and
school capacity to improve student learning in all schools
10
STATES MUST:
• Set ambitious, but achievable, Annual Measurable Objectives
(AMOs)
• Identify:
– Reward schools: Provide incentives and recognition for highprogress and highest performing Title I schools
– Priority schools: Identify lowest performing schools and implement
interventions aligned with the turnaround principles
– Focus schools: Identify and implement meaningful interventions
(e.g., turnaround principles) in schools with the lowest performing
subgroups
– Other low-performing Title I schools (Emerging schools):
Provide incentives and support
• Build state, district, and school capacity
11

AMO Calculations
•Annual targets intended to close proficiency gaps by half by 2017; uses 2011 as baseline and
adds equal annual increments (1/6 of proficiency gap) to get to 2017 target; each subgroup,
school, district, and state have unique annual targets.
•Calculations reported on Report Card
•No AYP sanctions based on identification of schools and districts “in improvement”
•Requires districts to set aside up to 20% for Priority, Focus, and Emerging Schools
School Improvement
•Uses AYP calculations to identify
schools and districts in a step of
improvement (Title I)
•Uses PLA Methodology based on
AYP calculations to generate list of

PRINCIPLE 3: SUPPORTING EFFECTIVE
INSTRUCTION AND LEADERSHIP
To support SEA and LEA development of evaluation systems that go beyond
NCLB’s minimum HQT standards
• Develop and adopt SEA guidelines for local teacher and
principal evaluation and support systems
• Ensure LEAs implement teacher and principal evaluation and
support systems that are consistent with SEA guidelines

USE OF STUDENT GROWTH DATA
USING STATE-BASED TOOLS
Upshot:
• State-based tools have limited applicability.
• Only teachers in Grades 4–8 with ELA or math courses can use summative
testing as part of their evaluation.
(HS math teachers with students in 9th grade Algebra or 10th grade Geometry could be included)
– Since evaluations are due in early May and SGP ratings aren’t available
until Sept. 1, analysis will always be one year behind.
– Teacher attribution is challenging at all levels:
• Middle school students are reported by individual classes in
CEDARS
• Elementary school students are reported by homeroom teacher in
CEDARS
– Transition to a new set of standards and a new exam system will take
time.

STUDENT GROWTH PERCENTILES
WHERE WE ARE
• March 2013: SGPs from 2011 & 2012 have been
provided to districts for Grades 4–8 and high school
(reading and math MSP, HSPE, and EOC)*
• October 2013: SGPs from 2013 provided to districts
• October 2014: ?
• October 2015: SGPs from 2015 (Smarter Balanced)
provided to districts
• October 2016: SGPs from 2016 (Smarter Balanced)
provided to districts (could use in 2016–17 evaluations)
*High school SGPs will be available for consecutive year tests (e.g., 8th MSP, 9th Algebra 1, 10th Geometry)

STATE
FEDERAL
E2SSB 6696 contains language
around student growth
including:
ESEA Flexibility -- Frequently Asked
Questions (C-53): What are an SEA’s
responsibilities with regard to ensuring
that an LEA’s evaluation and support
systems consider student growth?
Student growth data that is relevant to
the teacher and subject matter must be
a factor in the evaluation process and
must be based on multiple measures
that can include classroom-based,
school-based, district-based, and statebased tools. Student growth means the
change in student achievement
between two points in time.
An SEA is responsible for ensuring that an LEA
develops and implements evaluation and support
systems consistent with the guidelines the SEA
has developed under principle 3 (as described in
the document titled ESEA Flexibility). This
includes ensuring that LEA evaluation and
support systems take into account data on student
growth in significant part in determining teacher
and principal performance levels….
For grades and subjects in which assessments are
required under ESEA section 1111(b)(3), an SEA
must define a statewide approach for measuring
student growth based on such assessments.
22
PRINCIPLE 3: ESEA WAIVER
• USED requires state test
scores in tested grades and
subjects to be a significant
part of teacher evaluation
• Waiver requires change from
“can be used” to “must be
used” regarding state tests
• Supt. Dorn will seek request
legislation to change ESSB
5895 language from can to
must. It will also include a
statement that will delay the
implementation of using
state test scores in teacher
evaluations to 2016-17
• Smarter Balanced assessment
system will have an effect on
timeline for implementation
• Waiver decision expected May
2014
• 20% of Title 1 funds return to
mandated use without a waiver:
– $44M total available to
Supplemental Educational
Service (SES) providers and
to support School Choice
– $18M used three years ago
– $2.6M in Seattle

Evaluators place teachers into summative rating categories based on score bands. As
illustrated above, this teacher would receive a low student growth rating.
* Must include a minimum of two student growth measures (e.g., state-, district-, school-,
and classroom-based measures).
**A student growth score of 1 in any of the student growth rubrics will result in a Low
growth rating.
***For teachers on a focused evaluation, any cell with a score of 1 will result in a low rating;
a rating above 1 in all cells will result in an adequate rate.
38
STUDENT GROWTH INQUIRY CONSEQUENCES
Within two months of receiving the low student growth score or at the
beginning of the following school year, whichever is later, one or more of the
following must be initiated by the evaluator:
• Triangulate student growth measure with other evidence (including
observation, artifacts and student evidence) and additional levels of
student growth based on classroom, school, district and state-based
tools;
• Examine extenuating circumstances possibly including: goal setting
process/expectations, student attendance, and curriculum/assessment
alignment;
• Schedule monthly conferences with the teacher to discuss/revise goals,
progress toward meeting goals, and best practices; and/or
• Create and implement a professional development plan to address
student growth areas.
