  1. Welcome to the December Administrators’ RTTT Webex! December 21, 2012

  2. Outcomes: • Describe the key details of the Math and ELA assessment transitions (3-8) • Explain the Dignity for All Students Act • Describe the resources that have been added to the engageNY site

  3. Outcomes: • Describe resources that have been added to the Principals’ Center site • Explain updates on the Literacy and Math Task work

  4. Key Details of the Math Assessment (3-8) Transitions: • Focus: Priority standards will be the focus of the assessments--other standards will be deemphasized

  5. Key Details of the Math Assessment (3-8) Transitions: • Coherence: progression of content and concepts

  6. Key Details of the Math Assessment (3-8) Transitions: • Fluency: will not be assessed--it will be assumed that students possess the required fluencies • No calculators in grades 6 and below—possibly 8 and below

  7. Key Details of the Math Assessment Transitions: • Deep Understanding: standards will be assessed from multiple perspectives • ensuring and dictating standards in multiple ways while not veering from primary target of measurement in standards • fewer vocabulary questions

  8. Key Details of the Math Assessment Transitions: • Application and Dual Intensity: • students will be expected to know grade level math content with fluency • Students will be expected to know math concepts to employ to solve real world math problems

  9. Key Details of the ELA Assessment Transitions: • Balancing Informational and Literary Texts: Passages will be authentic and balanced across informational and literary texts • Knowledge in the Content Areas: • Assessments will contain knowledge based questions about the informational text • Students will not need outside knowledge to respond • Students will be expected to read informational texts from content domains and respond in writing

  10. Key Details of the ELA Assessment Transitions: • Staircase of Complexity: passage selection will be based on appropriate grade level • Text-based Responses: questions will require students to gather evidence from text

  11. Key Details of the ELA Assessment Transitions: • Academic Vocabulary: • Students will need to be strategic in solving words contextually • Students will be tested indirectly through general comprehension of the text • Fluency in academic vocabulary is expected

  12. Dignity for All Students Act: • Effective July 1, 2012 • The Dignity Act Legislative Intent: Provide all students in NY public schools an environment free of discrimination and harassment • No student shall be subjected to harassment, discrimination, or bullying by employees or students • No student shall be subjected to discrimination based on their: Actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or sex

  15. Dignity for All Students Act: • Staff Training Note • Ideally--1 person in each school building to be the point person for Dignity Act related issues • Depending on the size of the district, a staff member must be available to go to every school as needed and be readily accessible to other staff for consultation and advise- by phone or other means of communication • In smaller school districts, schools may share a staff member for multiple schools • There is no requirement to hire a new staff member

  16. Dignity for All Students Act: • The Dignity Act and student instruction: • instruction in civility, citizenship and character education • Grades K-12 • Honesty tolerance, personal responsibility, respect of others, observance of laws, courtesy, dignity • Dignity Act relates to safety issues in schools: • Expected behavior--code of conduct • Consistent enforcement with appropriate responses to violations • Staff training of all staff • Reporting disruptive activity already required to be included as part of VADIR
