August 2007 “Improvement” List

Here’s the official list from the KSDE web site. Since it’s available there only in Word format, we’ve decided to paste the whole thing in here for ease of use.

Kansas State Department of Education

Title I Schools and Districts

Identified for Improvement for 2007-2008

 

No Child Left Behind requires Title I schools and districts that do not make adequate yearly progress (AYP) for two consecutive years be identified for improvement.  The identification must occur prior to the beginning of the school year so that parents may make informed decisions regarding their children’s schools. Each school and district had opportunities to review their state assessment results, attendance and graduation data, make corrections, and file an appeal if they disagreed with the AYP decision. After a school or district is identified for improvement, it must make AYP for two consecutive years to be off improvement.

 

Title I Districts Identified for Improvement for 2007-2008

  • In 2006-2007, 11 Title I districts were identified for improvement. In 2007-2008, 16 districts are on improvement
  • 5 districts are in their 1st year of improvement
  • 7 districts are in their 2nd year of improvement; however, two are on “delay” status since they made AYP in 2007
  • 4 districts are in their 4th year of improvement
  • 10 districts are on improvement for reading; one is on improvement for mathematics
  • 5 districts are on improvement for both reading and mathematics
  • 8 districts on improvement have schools on improvement; 8 have no schools on improvement

Six schools in USD 500 Kansas City that were on improvement in 2006-2007 are not included in the 2007-2008 list as they are no longer Title I schools. In February 2007, the district notified the Kansas State Department of Education Title I office that it was changing the low-income data used to determine which schools are Title I schools. Previously, Kansas City used both free and reduced lunch data to determine the percent of poverty. In 2007-2008, the district is only including free lunch data. Title I requires districts to rank order all schools by the percent of poverty to determine which schools are eligible for Title I. As a result of decreasing Title I allocations, the district will serve all schools with a free lunch percentage of 75% or higher and additional elementary schools with 69% or higher poverty. Twenty-one schools will be Title I schools in 2007-2008.

 

In addition, Central Middle School in USD 500 Kansas City was previously on the list for mathematics. They are off improvement for mathematics; however, this is the first year for improvement in reading.

 

*Following are the School Sanctions by Improvement Status Year:

Year 1 Choice

Year 2 Choice and Supplemental Educational Services (SES)

            Year 3 Choice, SES and Corrective Action

            Year 4 Choice, SES, Continue Corrective Action, and Plan to Restructure

            Year 5 Choice, SES, Implement Restructuring Plan

 

A school or district on improvement is considered on delay status when they make AYP one year. With this status, the school or district delays moving to the next level of sanction. For example, a school in its second year of improvement must offer choice but delays implementing supplemental educational services since it made AYP during the last testing cycle.
