FOREST PARK, OH (FOX19) -
Winton Woods City Schools held a community meeting Monday night in the Winton Woods High School library to discuss the most recent Local Report Card rating. Preliminary results indicate that the district may be in 'Academic Watch' due to the addition of the Value Added Measure.
Superintendent Dr. Camille Nasbe and her administrative team, along with some of the members of the Board of Education, discussed the steps that will be taken during the current school year to improve those results and will be available to answer questions.
Preliminary data from the Ohio Department of Education, which has not yet been finalized, shows the district appears to have "Not Met" value-added.
"However, each of our schools, grades 4-8, received a value-added rating of ‘Met,'" said Nasbe.
She said the reason for the discrepancy is statistical.
"The standard error of measurement around the mean is smaller for a larger group, the district, making the value-added measure harder to meet. If a district has not met value-added for two or more years in a row, it can drop a rating."
At its Aug. 27 meeting, the Board of Education approved a comprehensive plan to address student performance and math achievement in particular. At the time, it was thought the district would be rated in 'Continuous Improvement.' The instructional plan calls for increased instructional rigor, student intervention and teacher improvement on value-added measures in reading and math. It targets math fact fluency at K-8 and tightens up student criteria for promotion/retention, increases time for math during the school day and implements extended day tutoring and summer school at those grade levels.
For more information on the district report card and tips for parents to help their child with math fact fluency and reading comprehension, visit the district website under "For Parents & Students" at www.wintonwoods.org. There is also a link available entitled "Helping Your Child Succeed in School."
