Sheldon Performance on State Assessments
As do all schools in Vermont, we continuously analyze the needs of our students and our school. We review information about learning and make determinations about necessary actions. This fall, we took our final NECAP Tests in grades 3-8 (a new assessment is scheduled to be given in the spring of 2015). We continued to implement improvement actions based on the results we had received in January of 2013 and the mandate to implement the new Common Core State Standards. The results we were sent in the spring of 2013 indicated that in reading 58% of our students in grades 3-8 scored proficient or above on the NECAP Test. This meant we did not lose any ground from the previous year. In math, 45% of our students in grades 3-8 scored proficient or above on the NECAP Test, which was a decrease from the previous year. These performance scores for the 2012-2013 school year meant we did not meet the State’s definition of adequate yearly progress (AYP). Our school has been identified as a school in need of improvement and corrective actions, and we must work to implement those actions in a different way than we have done previously.
