Evaluation of Consolidated Programs

The superintendent or designee shall conduct annual evaluations to determine whether supplemental services provided by consolidated programs are effective and supportive of the core curriculum. As a basis for this evaluation, the superintendent or designee shall recommend specific, measurable criteria that shall be used at each school and at the district level to evaluate student achievement and the effectiveness of each consolidated program. These criteria shall include, but not necessarily be limited to, progress toward goals contained in the school plan and progress of the total student population and each numerically significant subgroup toward growth targets on the statewide Academic Performance Index. The superintendent or designee shall also review the effectiveness of district programs in meeting federal program benchmark outcomes as delineated within the No Child Left Behind legislation.

The superintendent or designee shall submit these criteria for consideration by the board. If desired, each school may establish additional evaluation criteria beyond these districtwide criteria. Evaluations conducted for each school shall be presented annually to the board.
