The district did not meet a state-mandated performance marker last year because students failed to meet Language Arts requirements for the 2011-12 school year.
The district received 76 points out of 100 on the Instruction and Program portion of the annual Quality Single Accountability Continuum, state mandated performance evaluation and monitoring system. It consolidates state and federal requirements into one comprehensive system. The district needed to earn at least an 80 in order to pass. It received 90 or more in the other four categories.
The district lost 12 points for not having a consistent protocol in place regarding lesson plans.
“They just wanted to make sure we had a consistent plan in place,” said Superintendent Ray Gonzalez.
Gonzalez gave a presentation on the QSAC requirements at a Board of Education meeting Thursday. A copy of the presentation has been attached to this article.
Because of the failing score, the district must create an improvement plan outlining how it will address fixing the issue.
The district must submit the plan to the state before Oct. 1.
