• State Priority 2:  Implementation of State Academic Standards

    At the October 9, 2018 Board meeting, staff reported progress on implementation of state standards.

    2017-18 report on State Priority 2:  Implementation of State Academic Standards
    2016-17 report on State Priority 2:  Implementation of State Academic Standards

    Districts were offered a choice between using a state reflection tool or a locally selected measure or tool.  We used a rubric simplified from a tool created by the Butte County Office of Education. Teachers rated their progress on implementing state academic standards on a five point scale, from the exploration and research phase to full implmentation.

    Our teachers identified five areas where we are at full implementation:  English Language Arts, English Language Development, Mathematics, high school Science, and high school Social Studies.  There are three areas where ratings of implementation are rising, but not yet at a 4 or above:  elementary Social Studies, elementary Science, and high school Science.  This year, high school science teachers and elementary teachers are implementing lessons developed to align with the Next Generation Science Standards.
