Parents receive emails from a parent list serve that provides resources such as Group Educational Activities (GEA’s).  On a GEA students go to local museums, zoos, aquariums…etc.  Students have the opportunity to learn cooperatively in a hands-on environment and complete pre and post learning activities that coincide with the activity.

ES’s help parents connect with other parents to form cooperative learning groups in which students can learn with their peers in a group setting and learn valuable social skills.

The parent team with their ES’s to select vendors that provide physical education classes (such as dance lessons, nutrition classes, swimming lessons…etc.).  Parents and ES’s work together when necessary to select vendors who will provide group learning experiences (such as small group tutoring or classes).

Sky Mountain also has a parent council which meets two times per year. The parents are elected

to the council to serve as a member and they serve a two year terms.  Each member

helps make decisions about the school and its policies. The parents also serve on sub

committees that help serve the needs of the school and its students. The role of the parent                   council member is to:

• Uphold the mission of school

• Develop/approve short and long term goals

• Monitor school’s performance and review financial reports

• Monitor own board’s performance

• Be involved in the WASC accreditation process

• Serve for a two year term, as long as their children remain enrolled at SMCS

• Plan to attend all council meetings, in person or by phone conference

• Make suggestions to improve the school

• Establish and/or chair parent sub-committees for a variety of purposes, such as graduation planning, developing a school yearbook, planning group educational activities, grant application, volunteer coordination, etc.

• Be true to school's mission, not a personal agenda

• Be positive!

IX. Student Performance

California Standards Tests

The California Standards Tests (CSTs) show how well students are doing in relation to the state content standards. The CSTs include English-language arts (ELA) and mathematics in grades 2 through 11; science in grades 5, 8, and 9 through 11; and history-social science in grades 8, and 10 through 11. Student scores are reported as performance levels. Detailed information regarding CST results for each grade and performance level, including the percent of students not tested, can be found on the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Results Web page at http:///star.cde.ca.gov/. Note: Scores are not shown when the number of students tested is 10 or less because the number of students in this category is too small for statistical accuracy or privacy protection. In no case shall any group score be reported that would deliberately or inadvertently make public the score or performance of any individual student.

California High School Exit Examination

The California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) is primarily used as a graduation requirement. However, the grade 10 results of this exam are also used to establish the percentages of students at three proficiency levels (not proficient, proficient, or advanced) in ELA and mathematics in order to compute Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) designations as required by the federal NCLB Act of 2001. Detailed information regarding CAHSEE results can be found at the CAHSEE Web site at http:///cahsee.cde.ca.gov/. Note: Scores are not shown when the number of students tested is 10 or less because the number of students in this category is too small for statistical accuracy or privacy protection. In no case shall any group score be reported that would deliberately or inadvertently make public the score or performance of any individual student.

X. Accountability

Academic Performance Index

The Academic Performance Index (API) is an annual measure of the academic performance and progress of schools in California. API scores range from 200 to 1,000, with a statewide target of 800. Detailed information about the API can be found at the API Web page at http:///www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/ap/.

API Ranks – Three-Year Comparison

This table displays the school’s statewide and similar schools API ranks. These ranks are published when the Base API is released each March. The statewide API rank ranges from 1 to 10. A statewide rank of 1 means that the school has an API score in the lowest 10 percent of all schools in the state, while a statewide rank of 10 means that the school has an API score in the highest 10 percent of all schools in the state. The similar schools API rank reflects how a school compares to 100 statistically matched “similar schools.” A similar schools rank of 1 means that the school’s academic performance is comparable to the lowest performing 10 schools of the 100 similar schools, while a similar schools rank of 10 means that the school’s academic performance is better than at least 90 of the 100 similar schools.

*       Participation rate on the state's standards-based assessments in English-language arts (ELA) and mathematics

*       Percent proficient on the state's standards-based assessments in ELA and mathematics

*       API as an additional indicator

*       Graduation rate (for secondary schools)

Detailed information about AYP, including participation rates and percent proficient results by student group, can be found at the AYP Web page at http:///www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/ay/.

Federal Intervention Program (School Year 2007-08)

Schools and districts receiving federal Title I funding enter Program Improvement (PI) if they do not make AYP for two consecutive years in the same content area (English-language arts or mathematics) or on the same indicator (API or graduation rate). After entering PI, schools and districts advance to the next level of intervention with each additional year that they do not make AYP. Detailed information about PI identification can be found at the AYP Web page at http:///www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/ay/.

Completion of High School Graduation Requirements

Students in California public schools must pass both the English-language arts and mathematics portions of the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) to receive a high school diploma. For students who began the 2007-08 school year in the 12th grade, as evidenced by that school year’s October CBEDS enrollment, this table displays by student group the percent who met all state and local graduation requirements for grade 12 completion, including having passed both portions of the CAHSEE or received a local waiver or state exemption. Detailed information about the CAHSEE can be found at the CAHSEE Web page at http:///www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/hs/. Note: "N/A" means that the student group is not numerically significant.

Professional Development

This section provides information on the annual number of school days dedicated to staff development for the most recent three-year period.

 

 

New Educational Specialists go through initial training that covers all aspects of the job including administrative reporting and procedures, educational philosophies, all assessments required of students and how to select curriculum that fits the needs of all their students.  The Educational Specialist demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of these topics by completing training tests within the required time and by passing with 85% or better on the tests.

 

An advisor is assigned to each Educational Specialist to interact with them as a mentor or coach.  The advisor explains the procedures and requirements in further detail and oversees their paperwork and that they are following set policies and procedures correctly.

 

There are monthly meetings that serve as professional development for the Educational Specialists. Each meeting has a set agenda that informs them of important information, reviews procedures and policies, train in curriculum choices, teaching strategies and techniques and conflict resolution and allows for networking time.  There are two all day professional development days that are mandatory for the Educational Specialists to attend.  In addition, we provide trainings that are specific to policies, procedures and that deal with curriculum, and high school issues.  The Education Specialists are encouraged to attend these trainings which are presented over a web based media.
