4. Improve ECSD constituent communications by conducting five events, activities or programs (by July 1, 2012) that are in addition to traditional events such as open houses and Board meetings.
*Calculated by taking the percent increase in students at mastery level for all subjects for grades 3 through 12 based on state tests and criteria and averaging the percent increases to get an overall percent increase used for determination of success versus the goal. For consistency purposes cut scores for mastery will be the same for both years of the calculation and set to the earlier year in the calculation.
** Calculation will use the state weighting of twice for level 4, twice for level 3, once for level 2 and zero for level 1. Score will be done for each grade 3 through 8 and each subject that has a Regents Exam grade 9-12 and compared to all other schools in Erie County for a rank. The average of the scores will provide the ECSD overall rank used for determination of success versus goal.
