The Accountability Model for 2012-13 Teachers at Green Hope High School in Wake county must be proud! Alex Bambridge, a Sophomore at Green Hope received the Bronze award for his Microsoft skills in the International Completion in China this summer. Third in the world! Kudos to the following schools recognized for improvement under the USDOE SIG program:
The State Board of Education approved the implementation of the new accountability model for 2012-13.
For grades 3-8, the model includes student performance on end-of-grade assessments in English language arts and mathematics at grades 3-8 and in science at grades 5 and 8.
For high schools, the components include: (1) Algebra I/Integrated Mathematics I, English II, and Biology end-of-course assessment results, (2) ACT results from a statewide administration of 11th grade students, (3) 4-year and 5-year graduation rates, (4) successful completion of Algebra II/Integrated Mathematics III, (5) WorkKeys results from an administration to Career and Technical Education Level II completers, and (6) as an option, implementation of a graduation project.
