Improve student achievement results on district formative assessments, i.e., math unit assessments, APEX, Performance Series, student grade level cohort performance tests. Ensure classroom instruction is aligned to Student Growth Objectives and Student Performance Objectives, and is Common Core-aligned. Increase the use of open-ended response during classroom instruction. Increase the relevance/rigor of teacher SGOs and develop all SGOs on or before October 15, 2014. (Emphasis will be placed on student cohort/content areas identified through analysis of state benchmark assessments and in-district assessment data.)
Increase the relevance of technology infusion in classroom instruction. Increase the use of technology during elementary classroom assessment to greater familiarize students with PARCC testing modalities.
