CheckPoint: Socioeconomic Status and Student Achievement
The text discusses the relationship of socioeconomic status (SES) with student achievement (p. 134). You can learn more about your community and what you can do to help increase student achievement at your local schools by completing this CheckPoint.
 Resources: School Matters Web site at http://www.schoolmatters.com and p. 134 in Introduction to Teaching
 Due Date: Day 3 [Individual] forum
 Navigate to http://www.schoolmatters.com and locate the district you live in or want to work in. Browse either district or school-specific data regarding SES status, then complete the following:
o Identify the name and location of the school or school district you're investigating; include this information in your response.
o Locate and record information that would indicate SES of the school or district (such as household income, students eligible for free/reduced lunch fee program, education level of parents, and so forth).
o Locate and record information that would indicate student achievement (such as performance on standardized tests).
o Compare and discuss actual student achievement scores with your expectations based upon your observations of SES. Did your observations match your expectations? Why or why not?
o Search the Web to see how your community might be involved at the school or district you’re investigating. School, district, city, chamber of commerce, county, or state Web sites may provide information. What programs, if any, exist for the school or district that address the needs of students having low SES? What types of programs should or could the school, district, or community provide? Discuss at least one program
