Important Considerations for 2017-18 Letter Grades
• Indiana’s ESSA Plan has now been approved by the USDE.
• Indiana’s General Diploma does not count toward the graduation rate
  under current ESSA guidelines.
• The WIDA growth target is currently undetermined until the 2018 test
  administration at which time growth targets for individual students will be
  made available.
• Academic Achievement and Progress will be measured on the ISTEP test in
  grades 3-8, 10 in 2018.
• Grades 3-8 will transition to ILEARN in 2018-19.
• Grade 10 will transition to End of Course Assessments in 2018-19.
• Dr. McCormick has discussed assigning two letter grades for schools – one
  with the old accountability formula; one with the ESSA accountability
  formula.
• There is no published letter grade formula for school districts at this time.
• The Indiana State Board of Education is accepting public input on new
  formulas for School Letter grades to begin in 2018-19.
Student Achievement Benchmarks to Achieve
                 Board Goals
• By June 1, 2018, realize a 5% increase of the 3rd grade pass rate in
  both English/Language Arts and Mathematics as measured by ISTEP.
  (Academic Achievement)
• By June 1, 2018, realize a 10% increase in the pass rate for each
  cohort as measured by ISTEP. (Academic Progress)
• By June 1, 2018, LT will exceed the national average of 1.8 point
  growth in the RigorWalk assessment. (This assessment incorporates
  school culture as well as the pillars for rigorous teaching and
  learning.)
• By June 1, 2018, every English Language Learner will increase by at
  least one level as determined by the WIDA assessment. (English
  Language Proficiency)

Key Points for Consideration of Proposal School Letter
  Grade Categories/Weights: 2018-19 and beyond
• Growth would be capped at 100 points in
  elementary/middle school formula:
   – 7 schools earned more than 100 points growth in 2017.
   – 2 schools would have lower letter grades for 2017.
   – 3 would have lower letter grades for 2016.
• The testing system for the High School (SAT/ACT)
  would not be aligned with the ILEARN testing system
  of grades 3-8
• There will be an opportunity for public input prior to
  a Board decision.
2016 Board Goal – Increase E/LA Proficiency
• 2016 – transition from CTB to Pearson
   – Mode adjustments to scores,
   – Scoring process and delays called into question the validity of
     the results,
   – Different calculations for student growth.
• MSDLT Results: 1.1% decline in E/LA pass rate
• Marion County E/LA Ranking:
   – 2014: 9 of 11 (old standards, MSDLT earned an A district rating)
   – 2015: 7 of 11
   – 2016: 7 of 11
   – 2017: 6 of 11
