  3. To approve the Superintendent's Merit and Compensation Goals for the 2014-2015 school year as per his contract and as approved by the Executive County Superintendent of Schools, as follows:

    Quantitative Goal #1: Students in Grades K-5 will demonstrate an average growth of 27.5% which is a 1.5% increase over the 2013/2014 school year.

    Collecting data for the Math Expressions Pre/Post Tests in Grades K-5 will show that the average percentage increase from the Pre Test to the Post Test will have an average growth of 1.5% greater than the 2013/2014 school year.

    Quantitative Goal #2: On average, students in Grades K-3 will improve by one reading level on the Diagnostic Reading Assessment 2 Scale (DRA2).  On average, students in Grades 4-5 will improve by 2 percentage points from the prior year's Unit 5 benchmark Score.

    Using the prior year's (2013/2014) Unit 5 benchmark student's success on these Unit 5 benchmarks will show a 2% increase.

    Quantitative Goal #3: 80% of staff or more will achieve a 2.65 efficiency level with each of their Student Growth Objectives (SGO's) through effective use and applications of data with coaching and professional development in the use of data and application of the Marzano Art and Science of Teaching research-based instructional strategies through the use of effective coaching and mentoring strategies.

    Qualitative Goal #1: To develop common assessments across each grade level and subject area, in order to better maintain consistent expectations of student learning throughout the district.

    Qualitative Goal #2: To enhance our Walk-Through Process and our electronic tools so that the data collected focuses on best practices in the areas of learning objectives, questioning skills and assessment techniques.  The process will include a feedback loop to teachers.
