Reinstating the work of the No Child Behind Act, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), signed into law in 2015 by President Barack Obama, offers credence to student growth and graduation rates, accounting for fifty percent of how schools are evaluated, and carrying with it a 15-year timeline.<br /><br />Transitioning from a spotlight focused on standardized test scores, multiple indicators of students&rsquo; success will be used to assess school quality. In addition to standardized tests, comprehensive indicators will include academic growth, chronic absenteeism, English learner proficiency, fine arts participation, school climate survey summaries, science measures, as well as preschool to second grade and elementary/ middle-grade indicators. The system also measures the academic progress of individual student demographic groups across the inclusive indicators. High school indicators comprise college entrance examination (SAT) success, as well as graduation accountability.<br /><br />Using these balanced indicators, as defined through ESSA, a set of four tiers have been designated to reflect individual school performance; Exemplary, Commendable, Underperforming/Comprehensive, and Lowest Performing/Targeted, with funding and support services aligned to the most challenged or struggling of schools.<br /><br />For more information, read the <a href="https://www.d70schools.org/lib/redirect.php?res_id=1397">comprehensive summary of Illinois&#39;&nbsp;Every School Succeeds Plan</a>.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 05 Oct 2018 15:38:53 -0500 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=2#5695
