2009-2014 STRATEGIC PLAN MID-POINT REVIEW

EDUCATION BOARD MEETING
SEPTEMBER 12, 2011

1

Strategic Plan Mid-Point Review

From the time a child enters the district he/she is observed and assessed to identify his/her academic and developmental levels. At each grade level, on a regular basis, measurements are taken formally and informally to identify areas of strength and areas of need as well as note progress in the curriculum. These measurements include, but are not limited to, math, reading, and writing benchmarks. Teachers collaboratively review the assessment data and monitor student progress to inform instruction and to strengthen the student, class, and grade. All students benefit from a continuum of services, either short term or long term, from the interventions of literacy and math specialists and the building-wide achievement teams to supports for students with disabilities. Each building team considers the holistic needs of the child no matter where he/she is academically or developmentally.

Strategic Plan Mid-Point Review

The Lower Merion School District (LMSD) strategic planning committee was formed in 2009 and included over 60 parents, community members, teachers, students, school administrators and board members. The committee began the strategic planning process by affirming the district’s Mission, Vision and Values and identified strengths and needs that would be key in the development of the plan. From these strengths and needs emerged goals that would provide the district with direction for the next 5 years. The district has reached the mid-point of the 5 year strategic plan. The following presentation includes an overview of the 6 LMSD goals, preliminary indicators of progress, and identification of areas of need. Once approved by the Board of School Directors, the plan will move from mid-point review and modifications to the second phase of implementation.

CURRICULUM & STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT GOAL
Data connected to the curriculum, student achievement, and achievement gaps goals are contained in the following sections of the mid-point review presentation. Data from standardized assessments is presented to underscore progress and identify areas of need. Student achievement data such as standardized test score reports can be used to inform instructional decisions. The district also collects and analyzes information from observations, surveys, and conversations to ensure students are growing socially and emotionally as well as academically. The achievement data presented in the mid-point review is but one of the many components of a comprehensive educational program focused on the success of every child.
31

CURRICULUM & STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT GOAL
The preliminary indicators of progress for student achievement in reading, math, & writing at the benchmark grades of 5, 8, and 11 are presented in this section. Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) data from 2008 was used by the strategic planning committee to inform the development of the strategic plan goals, strategies, and activities. PSSA data from 2011 is the most recent achievement data available and coincides with the strategic plan mid-point review. The 2011 reading and math results indicate an increase in the number and percentage of students achieving at the advanced level in grades 5, 8, and 11. The writing results are mixed at the benchmark grades and indicate the overall percentage of students performing at the proficient and above level has remained over 84% from 2008 to 2011 in grades 5, 8, and 11 while the number and percentage of students performing at the advanced level decreased in grade 5 by 10% and in grade 11 by 5% in the same timespan.

This section of the presentation includes data for the SAT and Advanced Placement (AP) exams and average grades earned by candidates in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. The SAT data indicates LMSD students are exceeding the state and national averages in the 2008 planning year and at the 2011 mid-point. AP results indicate the percentage of students earning a 3 or higher has risen from 87% in 2008 to 89% in 2011. The percentage of LMSD students scoring 3+ on the AP exams exceeds state and national averages in both 2008 and 2011 by greater than 20 percentage points. The IB average grades for courses with 10 or more candidates in 2011 indicate LMSD students are near or above global averages in each of the 5 courses. An IB grade is the official score earned through IB assessments and includes the end of year IB exam as well as other assessments completed throughout the school.

ACHIEVEMENT GAPS GOAL
This section of the presentation is similar to the first section and contains PSSA results for grades 5, 8, and 11 in 2008 and 2011 and cohort data for grades 5 and 8 in 2008 and grades 8 and 11 in 2011. The data is presented in sections of disaggregated subgroups identified in the strategic planning process. The data for students with Individualized Education Plans (IEP) indicates a decrease in the number and percentage of students performing at the below basic level in reading, math, and writing with the exception of grade 11 reading and writing. The number and percentage of proficient and advanced students fluctuated in grades 5, 8, and 11. Cohort data for students with IEPs indicates an increase in the number and percentage of students performing at the proficient and advanced levels in each cohort except grade 8 to 11 reading. The percentage of proficient and above students in grade 8 was 74% in 2008 and decreased to 60% in grade 11 in 2011.

ACHIEVEMENT GAPS GOAL
This section of the presentation contains PSSA results for grades 5, 8, and 11 in 2008 and 2011 and cohort data for grades 5 and 8 in 2008 and grades 8 and 11 in 2011. The data for economically disadvantaged students indicates an increase in overall proficiency in 2011 at the middle level in grade 8 and a decrease at the high school level in reading, math, and writing with the exception of grade 11 reading and writing. Cohort data for economically disadvantaged students indicates an increase in the number and percentage of students performing at the proficient and advanced levels in the grade 5-8 cohort and a decrease in the grade 8-11 cohort. One exception is grade 11 writing with a 6% increase in the percentage of students at the proficient and above level.
