18-19 Sponsor Evaluation FAQ and other OCS Updates

Greetings Sponsors,
 
By Dec. 31 each year, the Office of Community Schools must provide to the governor and General Assembly a report on the performance of community schools and their sponsors. I am happy to relay to you the report is in the Department’s Office of Communications receiving an updated layout (very excited for the way it will look), but more importantly, I am happy to share a few highlights from the report. Last year (the 2017-2018 school year), there were 340 community schools, of which 310 are still in operation, with 95 percent sponsored by Effective sponsors. Also, 42 percent of those schools received a C or better on the 2017-2018 report cards.

November Updates from the Office of Community Schools

Greetings Sponsors, 

As we move into December, here are updates from the Office of Community Schools: 

  1. We have created a new webpage for the Community School Improvement Plan and Resources. The page is found on the Community Schools homepage under the Schools topic (directly below the Directory link). A few documents we wish to highlight include the following:
    1. A comprehensive spreadsheet that has all school labels (Priority, Focus, Watch, At-Risk of Closure, Needs Intervention and Reading Achievement Plans) has been posted and is sortable to allow you to have one spreadsheet with all the designations for your portfolio of schools.
    2. A Community School Improvement Plan FAQs document has been developed. This document should assist you and your schools as they complete the Improvement Plan template.
    3. The plan review template and checklist are posted.

To help us understand your needs, we are asking community schools and their sponsors to complete a short survey available here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/R5BHP2L .

Office of Community School Updates - October 2018

Dear Sponsors,

As we move into October, there are a few upcoming events, deadlines and announcements I want to pass along:

  • In my last message, I indicated the Sponsor Annual Report of School’s Special Education and Related Services to Students with Disabilities form was posted on the Department’s website. This document was an update to last year’s form. There have been a few inquiries regarding the template, so we reposted the document as a Word document and posted a sample document to assist with completing the form.
