  33. 0 SOL/AYP Results 2009 • As mentioned, SOL results indicate that all six Salem City Schools and the Division made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) under the Federal No Child Left Behind Act. • 94%of the total number of students tested passed the English:Reading Tests.

  34. 0 SOL/AYP Results 2009 • 92% of the total number of students tested passed the Math Tests.

  35. 0 AYP and SOL Test Results 2009 Summary • Overall test results in 2009 were excellent. • In 2009, at the elementary level, Salem had a 90% achievement rate or better in all four of the elementary schools in seven of the twelve grade level specific subject areas tested. • At the elementary level, individual schools achieved either a 99% or 100% pass rate on six of the grade level specific tests.

  36. 0 AYP and SOL Test Results 2009 Summary (Continued) • Elementary results did contain areas of concern. In three tested areas, individual schools had passing percentages in certain areas of assessment which were 85% or below. The lowest passing percentage (84) was found in US History to 1877. • Andrew Lewis Middle School results were very good in both the Multiple Choice and End-of-Course testing categories. For example, all of ALMS geometry and algebra students passed the SOL tests. In the area of special tests all of ALMS’s Virginia Substitute Evaluation Program Tests in World Geography passed. This was the second year in a row that ALMS achieved a 100% pass rate.

  37. 0 AYP and SOL Test Results 2009 Summary (Continued) • Salem High School test results were impressive, both in terms of SOL End-of-Course pass rates and AYP achievement. All of the eleven tested EOC areas had pass rates in excess of 90%. Eight of the eleven tested areas had pass rates of 95% or better. The Chemistry pass rate was 100%.

  38. 0 AYP and SOL Test Results 2009 Summary (Continued) • It should be noted that the Salem City school division is continuing to focus on math instruction, especially in the are of middle school math. The “Vertical Math Team” has an established goal of improving overall math instruction in Salem City Schools and has already begun to pay dividends. • As a result of the efforts of ALMS teachers and leaders, math achievement at ALMS has increased from an 86 % passing rate in 2007-2008 to a 90% passing rate in 2008-2009. Especially impressive was the math passing rate for disabled students. The pass rate increased from 58% to 87%.

  39. AYP and SOL Test Results 2009 Summary (Continued) In addition, the first year of implementation of “Assessment FOR Learning” as an approach to improving and individualizing instruction for all students in Salem City Schools was very successful. In the coming year (SY 09-10), the emphasis on AFL will continue and will feature a review and professional dialogue on grading practices. Simultaneously, Division Leadership will be investigating new statistical tools in an effort to use SOL data as a predictive measure. 0

  40. AYP and SOL Test Results 2009 Summary (Continued) Again, as in 2008-2009, as a component of the Salem School Board’s Goals and Objectives for 2009-2010, specific goals and objectives will be created for student achievement, as measured by SOL tests, for every assessment administered at every school with special emphasis on areas not exceeding the Division minimum of 90%. Dr. Seibert has also directed that a systematic method to record, track and access key student performance data in an electronic format that is compatible with the Student Information System be developed and be accessible to teachers. 0

  41. Superintendent’s Reflections SOL scores are important because they are indicators of student progress, but they are inherently limited because we teach children, not percentages. More importantly, we teach children for 180 days a year and not just the day of an assessment. In Salem, we encourage all staff to ensure that meaningful assessment takes place throughout the instructional process and to fully utilize technology as an important learning tool. Salem teachers put children first every day, and the goal of effective, ongoing assessment is to inform and individualize instruction for the children we serve. - Dr. H. Alan Seibert, Division Superintendent
