Measurable Outcome #2: CUSD Restored the 2014-15 school year to 180 days. 

NOTE: CUSD had 3 Instructional Furlough Days in 2013-14

Measurable Outcome #11: Increase AMAO 1 by 3%

Measurable Outcomes That Were Not Met:

 

Measurable Outcome #1: Improve Test Scores- Increase student proficiency in academic achievement measures by 3% in all grade bands (from previous year) and across subgroups.

NOTE: Unfortunately there is no way for parents and the public to determine if this goal has been met because the State of California is no longer using the STAR Test assessments to measure academic performance in science. The State implemented a new CAASP assessment system as of July 1, 2013. Data from STAR assessments cannot be compared to data from CAASPP assessments. Because CAASP is a new assessment, there will be no ability for the Public to see downward or upward academic performance trends for several years. The District knew that assessments were changing and should never have stated a 3% improvement on STAR testing as a goal since there was no way to meet that stated goal. 

NOTE: API had dropped 9points from 2011-12 before API testing was discontinued by the State.

NOTE: EAP testing data shows a substantial, and continual decline in Math for all students. The data also reflects that the number of students choosing to take Algebra II has declined. When tested, only 3% of students taking Algebra 2 were ready for college work, down from 6% in 2013-14.

Measurable Outcome #3:  Class Size Reduction - 

NOTE: Class size averages will be restored within Ed. Code (no waivers), based on negotiated contract. Under "Local Control" there is no penalty for class increased class size - Districts are free to negotiate whatever class sizes they would like.

NOTE: The District budgeted $4,937 to reduce class sizes. Class sizes were not reduced in 2014-15 per OCDE. Money that was budgeted for CSR was pent on increased employee compensation.

Measurable Outcome #7:  Increase the number of Highly Qualified Teachers - 

Measurable Outcome #9:  English Language Learner Reclassification Rates will improve by 3% 

Measurable Outcome #10: The number of Long Term English Learners will decrease by 2% in Grades 5-12

Measurable Outcome #12: AMAO 2 (Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives) will increase by 3%

Measurable Outcomes That Were Partially Met:

 

Measurable Outcome #8:  Williams Complaints - Facilities Repair/Maintenance (Goal Not Met) - Instructional Materials for Every Student (Goal Met)

Measurable Outcome That Did Not Provides Any Meaningful Measurement Of Student Achievement:

 

Measurable Outcome #4:  Baseline SBAC Test data was collected - (Baseline Data- cannot compare SBAC Results to STAR testing results - Good? or Bad?)

Measurable Outcome #5:  Classroom instruction will reflect grade level standards, including digital literacy skills  

NOTE: Under "Local Control" Districts are no longer required to align subject content and instructional time with State Content Standards and curriculum frameworks. CUSD does not have credentialed teachers teaching Primary Music, or Art in grades 1- 6- individual classroom teachers (not credentialed to teach art or music) are embedding art and music in the classroom for those students who cannot afford to fundraise for programs that align with State Content Standards or Curriculum Frameworks. 

Measurable Outcome #6:  Identification of College and Career Internships and apprenticeships

NOTE: There are no career experience opportunities, internships or apprenticeships currently available to CUSD students.

 

Goal 2:

Provide interventions for academically, behaviorally, and social/emotionally at risk students. Learn More!

Measurable Outcome #1: Establishment of districtwide MTSS plan and guiding principals

Measurable Outcome #2: Decreased referrals to more restrictive programs and/or special education services

Measurable Outcome #3: Attendance data

Measurable Outcome #4: High School drop out rate

Measurable Outcome #5: Middle School drop out rate

Measurable Outcome #6: Suspension and expulsion rates

Goal 3:

Increase the number of K-12 student offerings reflecting a broad course of study to ensure students are on track to graduate from high school college and career ready. Learn More!

Goals That Were Met:

Measurable Outcome #2: Additional CTE Pathway will be integrated into course offerings Details

Goals That Were Not Met:

Measurable Outcome #1: The number of students completing A-G requirements will increase by 3%  Details

Measurable Outcome #3: 95% of 8th grade students will complete Ready Step college survey Details

Measurable Outcome #4: EAP results will reflect a 3% increase over prior year in students identified as "college ready" Details

Measurable Outcome #5: Baseline senior exit survey will be developed/conducted Details

Measurable Outcome #6: District's Art Plan will be up-dated Details

Measurable Outcome #7: Increase participation in clubs, organizations and athletics at high school Details

Goal 4:

Expand parent and community engagement to include representation of all students.

Goal 5:

Develop a multi-year plan to enhance facilities that are clean safe, healthy, functional and appropriate to foster academic achievement. Increase the number of student and staff technological devices required to support 21st century learning.

Under each of the stated goals there are stated measurable outcomes which can be supported by data to determine how the District is doing in meeting it's stated goals. The public is suppose to be able to determine the quality of education being provided to students by seeing if the LCAP Goals are met. However, there is no recourse for the Public if LCAP data is incorrect, and/or goals are not being met until 3 years of data can be presented. The 2014 LCAP is the first year of data so the public will have no recourse until 2017. A freshman in high school will have no remedy till their senior year- in reality, there is no way for the Public to hold the District accountable to students under the new education funding law until there is a record of three consecutive years of declining data.
