New California Accountability System:  Dashboard

Dear Mayan Families,

The state of California released the California School Dashboard, which is the new accountability system for all California schools.  This dashboard contains data on schools throughout the state to provide parents and community members access to a more comprehensive picture of the performance of our schools.  This new framework is based on three principles.

 

  • The use of Multiple Measures instead of just one measure
  • Focus on Equity for all student groups
  • Supporting Local Decision Making above state control

 

To learn more about the Dashboard see the links below
Below is a short narrative of our findings and the direct link to our school Dashboard.
 
Montgomery Middle’s work on climate and culture has led to low suspension rates and gains in English Learner reclassification.  School-wide implementation of AVID strategies based on language development created a 78% growth percentile in English performance.  Data shows a need to improve our academic performance in math  and decrease the amount of chronically absent students.  Through the collaborative efforts of our strength based community we will focus on initial instruction that increases engagement and mastery for each student while proving that it is great to be a Mayan!
