Absolute Priority 5 Improving Achievement and High School Graduation Rates Rural. LEAs DNCUSD is listed on the Rural Low Income Schools list because of the high numbers. of Socioeconomically Disadvantaged students in the District low income and the distances. students travel to schools DNUSD has made significant improvements in the area of graduation. rates over the last four years but over 20 of our students are still not graduating high school.

Del Norte is the northern most coastal county in California with a population of 29 114 It is. not only rural but at the end of the road that is seven hours by car to San Francisco or Portland.

Park wood products schools county government and fishing are the major employers in the. county Isolation and rural poverty heavily impact student achievement in Del Norte County. DNCUSD is a single county wide district with twenty schools spread across 1230 square. miles Connectivity through high speed Internet Digital California reached us in 2005. Elementary schools average 3 5 students per computer the middle school 2 9 to each and high. schools 3 1 and all teachers have an online computer in their classrooms However the majority. of our families do not have computers in their homes REACT will focus on the challenges of. rural students rarely computers except at school and come from homes with low expectations. DNCUSD is not in Program Improvement but it has not met AYP criteria for ELA and Math. in the past two years This year there are five district schools in Program Improvement and. several others may well join the list in 2011, School Grades PI Yr S E D ELL Students AYP Criteria not.

Middle School have an exceptional record of improving achievement in ELA Scores on the CST. over several years with improvement in Math scores as well It is a reasonable hypothesis that. this growth is directly attributed to use of a Data Coaching Model and Data Informed Instruction. The process at both sites has included an ongoing cycle of 1 using formative assessments to. measure student growth 2 recording organizing and displaying this data digitally as well as. on a data wall 3 using a Data Coach to facilitate data analysis meetings with teachers and 4. teachers planning targeted interventions to improve student outcomes The recent research by. Dr Anthony Bryk 2009 documents the success of coaching and the improved scores in all. subgroups His four year longitudinal Coaching Model study of teaching and student. achievement found that students average rates of learning in grades K 2 increased by 32 in the. third implementation year Teacher expertise increased substantially as did professional. communication amongst teachers and Data Coaches became central to school communication. This process implemented at JH and Crescent Elk is the rationale for the REACT research. project California Standards Testing data evidence.

PLC teams will increase teacher effectiveness and positively impact student outcomes. The Data Wall use for analysis of curriculum based assessment results is pivotal to the. REACT Project An expansion of this program to all district schools is needed in order to study. its impact in other sites with different demographics within a small school district with a model. for coaching in all academic subjects and with developmental measures in preschools REACT. will expand our model in a comprehensive fashion across the district for use with pre schools. ELA and Math at the elementary level and all core subjects at high school Peer Data Coaching. and the Data Wall process are the two essential components The Project will serve 3 893. students and 196 teachers in Del Norte County, Significance of Effect The significant progress made at a single school site and an. interdisciplinary team at a middle school warrant further study to investigate efficacy REACT. will scale up the core elements implemented at the two sites to a county wide district The. district includes diverse school sites such as Margaret Keating Elementary with 80 American. Indian student population Smith River elementary with a large ELL migrant population and. Bess Maxwell Elementary with 84 Free and Reduced Lunch The results of the REACT. evaluation plan will allow other districts to understand the impact of data coaching and data. informed instruction on this wide diversity of schools and grade levels. Magnitude of Effect With a cohesive process of data analysis with tiers of interventions we. anticipate a moderate to large size effect for CST scores 2 3 standard deviation higher.

over the four years of REACT for students in grades 2 6 ELL Students with Disabilities and. Socio economically Disadvantaged subgroups We anticipate that we will significantly close. achievement gaps for preschoolers entering kindergarten by improving their success on Desired. Results Developmental Profiles given in each preschool Student achievement in grades 7 12. will show a moderate change in scores 2 standard deviation higher overall but we predict a. significant growth for AYP subgroups Focus on data participation at teacher academies and. teacher collaboration will help teaching practice, REACT will show other districts in rural counties ways to 1 more effectively share. resources both human and technological and 2 effectively build a team to lead their district. through change by using data analysis to change student achievement and teacher practice. Part B Project Design Part B 1 Goals Objectives and Strategy. Goals and Objectives The Data Coaching Model with Data Wall process used by the two. schools will be the core of the REACT Project I3 funds will support fully implementing the. Data Coaching Model that has shown high potential but has not been implemented district wide. We intend to use Data Walls in preschool to high school classrooms as an integrated assessment. and intervention system that identifies students at risk for poor learning outcomes monitors. student progress and provides evidenced based interventions at multiple levels. Improving achievement and High School Graduation rates will be a REACT Project. focus District administration is committed to the idea that Data tells us where we are where. we need to go and who most is at risk Arne Duncan June 8 2009 Using research based. successful methodologies REACT seeks to show significant increases in percentages of all. students scoring in the Proficient or Advanced portions of CST.
