Reporting our Progress
Outcome goals and targets
In September 2015, the School Board approved a set of four outcome goals that will serve alongside the strategic plan to guide work over the coming years. The four outcome goals were established to provide all stakeholders a clear sense about what the strategic plan is intended to help our students accomplish.
The outcome goals are as follows:
- Increase percent of students at or above college readiness standards in math and reading
- Increase percent of students making expected gains in math and reading, including both students who start below the college readiness benchmark and students who start above the college readiness benchmark
- Decrease percent of students at or below the 25th percentile
- Decrease achievement gaps between groups of students in math and reading by improving performance of all subgroups
The outcome targets are as follows:
Metric Baseline (2014-15) 5-Year Target Current Trend Difference Percent meeting CRB (math) 56.9% 5.0% -0.3% 5.3% Percent meeting CRB (reading) 61.4% 6.5% -0.9% 7.4% Percent making expected gains (math) 47.9% 7.0% -0.4% 7.4% Percent making expected gains (reading) 38.0% 7.0% -1.9% 8.9% Percent at or below the 25th percentile (math) 14.1% -3.5% 2.2% -5.7% Percent at or below the 25th percentile (reading) 14.6% -2.0% 1.5% -3.5%
STRATEGIC PLAN SCORECARD
Each August, a Strategic Plan Student Outcomes Scorecard is presented. This scorecard measures progress on the student outcome goals listed in the above section. In addition, a Strategic Plan Strategy Indicators Scorecard is presented in January that reports on the goal-level measures of success identified throughout the plan.

NOTE: In August 2016, the School Board updated the definitions for the metrics used to track the District's progress. This update brings District 65's student performance measurement system up to date with the latest research about the latest research about the MAP assessment the district uses to measure student outcomes. Additional information about these changes can be found on the 'Reports' page of the District 65 website.
Within the strategic plan are goals for each of the five core areas – High Quality Teaching and Learning, Thriving Workforce, Family and Community Engagement, Safe and Supportive School Climate, and Financial Sustainability. Each quarter, the District will report on the progress made in each of these areas.
