Why isn't the Great Schools rating higher?
With the transition to Smarter Balance Assessments, the District provided programs did not align well with the assessments. In 2018, the school reviewed data and discovered that the only schools performing better on standardized tests were schools implementing Eureka Math and Reading and Writing Workshop. The school immediately procured the materials in 2018, and in 2019 the school contracted with consultants to support the transition to the new materials. We are already seeing significant improvement in class instruction and student assessment scores on Interim assessments.
