August 8, 2016 - Special Education Annual Ratings

Special Education Annual Ratings

Every year, school districts receive a report on the performance of their special education programs, known as their Special Education Rating. The department sent districts’ ratings on Aug. 5, 2016, with reports emailed to superintendents, special education contacts and community school sponsors.

As in past years, measures of procedural compliance are the basis of the 2016 ratings. Additionally, this year’s report previews measures of results for students with disabilities. Though the changes will not take effect until 2018, this year’s report includes both the actual rating (procedural compliance only) and projected rating (a combination of two scores, procedural compliance and students’ results) to show the impact of the results measures on the annual rating.

If the district did not receive the email with the district’s rating or there are questions, please contact the department’s Office for Exceptional Children.  Click here for resources and additional information.

August 5, 2016 -CEO Goals For Charter Success

Hi James Leonard,

When it comes to charter schools, the success of the CEO or school leader correlates with organizational success. That is why it is imperative for the CEO to set strong goals that align the organization around a path to achieve charter promises.

In the month of August, your friends at BoardOnTrack are prepared to help with information on creating, setting, and reaching CEO goals through two free sessions:

[Free Webinar] 8/11/2106 | 2pm EST, 11 am PST

This hour-long educational session will cover:

  • The role which the board plays in setting and achieving yearlong goals
  • Recommended categories of CEO goals for better organization
  • Some handy tips on using data to best track goals

[Free Virtual Walk-In Clinic] 8/18/2016 | 2 pm EST, 11 am PST

Join our CEO and fellow CEO panelists as they share:

  • Ways to define, set, track, and achieve proper CEO goals
