I asked Sam for some credit deficient data this week, and it is now, in the front of my mind as to why we have a pretty hard climb ahead for high school.
I do, however, value and want anyone’s innovative, simplified, and focused ideas, plans, dialogue, and questions to move this data.
We can flip this and be a school with 31% off track and 68% on track, instead of the opposite, like it shows here.
So much going on this year, but please take everything in perspective. Even if you a drop a ball, it’s not the end of the world and tomorrow will come and our team will be there to help. Take a deep breath, walk outside and know that June 5th is a real date with much different priorities. We got this.

This is an important SAGE update on ELA scoring from USBE:

SAGE ELA Assessment
SAGE Writing Assessment
“Duplicate Text” = Student responses is substantially repeated text copied over and over
These essays should be rescored, and in some cases, were also sent for human scoring to validate the score. This process will also be complete this week.
“Not Enough Data” = Student response is less than minimum number of words configured in the rubric (typically >12 words)
These essays will not be rescored
Thank you for your patience as these issues are resolved.
FAST referrals are now closed for the 2016-2017 school year!
