# Name: Karl Bayek EDU 515 K-12 Environments Data Driven Decision Making Project In spring 2011, the School

Improvement Team at your elementary school reviewed the year-end achievement data and decided that something needed to be done about school-wide declining reading and math scores. The results for 2011 showed that only 70% of the third grade students met or exceeded the state’s cut-off score for “proficient” in reading (Subgroup results: White -71%, Black-73%, Hispanic - 68%, Low SES - 72%, ELL - 75%, SWD - 50%). In Math, only 72% of the third grade students met or exceeded the state’s cut-off score for “proficient” in math (Subgroup results: White - 73%, Black 69%, Hispanic - 71%, Low SES - 73%, ELL - 70%, SWD - 67%). Spring 2011 All 3rd Grade White Black Hispanic Low SES ELL SWD % Proficient Reading Math 70 72 71 73 73 69 68 71 72 73 75 70 50 67
