Improvements set in Whitley schools by Dale Morton times Tribune staff writer preliminary evaluation and review of the educational system in Whitley county is nearing completion and a full scale Effort to streamline instruction has begun. Through its annual local educational improvement plan and a voluntary study of the eff of Whitley county of activeness schools the system Hope to upgrade several areas which have shown some do of sciences in recent student testing. Hobert Bird instructional supervisor for Whitley county schools said improvements have already begun to surface. A we have noted our deficiencies and we have worked on improving those deficiencies a Bird said. A and our test scores this year that we Are getting in have showed that we Are the main thrust of recent evaluations have indicated a need to develop written curriculum guides for teachers and students. Bird said. Currently the system uses textbooks As the basis for curriculum guides. But since the school systems objectives May not be exactly the same As the textbooks objectives a which could change each time a new text is adopted a a we feel we would be better served by having our own written curriculum guides a Bird said. Since development of such guides takes several years the system has set a time table for various stages of this development. By the end of the 1983-84 school year school officials Hope to involve 95 percent of the teachers in formative and evaluation phases of the project. Learner objectives need to be specified. Bird said. Certain skills that need to have been taught at certain Levels will be listed and administered system wide. By using Kentucky Board of education curriculum guides a a listing of things a child need to learn Grade by Grade and subject by subject a a committee of teachers. Representing each grave level will a in work on a guide this summer. Through constant review and revision a final guide is expected to be Complete by 1986, As a result. Bird said the school system will have All teachers working toward the same goals and these teachers will have definite objectives to strive for when making up their planning guides. Two specific plans which a automatically fall in line with each other Are being used to accomplish this goal. Bird said. The first is a local educational in movement plan. Lydia Sledge director of the unit for educational improvement in Frankfort said this program was started by state statute in 1978. Essentially this plan is derived from test scores of students Basic skills. The system Tak those skills areas scoring lowest Overall and develops a plan to Correct the deficiency. In Kentucky five Basic skills areas Are tested Reading math writing spelling and reference skills. Sledge said the latter category which includes Library Type reference abilities is fairly unique to the state. She said it is rare that reference skins Are required by Law. In fact she said Many systems do not even list spelling am cog the Basic skills categories. Combined with the test of Basic skills known As cubs is a test of cognitive skills or pcs. Testing is mandatory for grades 3,5,7 and 10. Whitley county administers cubs exams at All Grade Levels. Other than testing. The system uses questionnaires to help evaluate needs and possible changes. These school effectiveness questionnaires Are sent to teachers parents and students. Last year approximately 500 to 600 such questionnaires were distributed and a a better than Ordinary response was obtained. Bird said Normal response is about 70 percent but that Al teachers 97 percent of students and 80 percent of parents responded. A i think its been very helpful in getting us to develop a curriculum guide a Bird said. A a it a made us aware that we need to have a better Way the child a another plus came through the voluntary Rte citation in a state school effectiveness plan. This recently completed study identified both positive and negative aspects of four significant school system characteristics instructional leadership instructional planning instruct Mial use of time and use of an evaluation and Reward system. Eight objectives were identified by the state review committee. These were to develop an i service plan based on teacher Survey of needs to involve 95 percent of the teaching staff involved in the curriculum development and or textbook selection and to have evaluated the Library needs with emphasis of upgrading resources and equipment. Also to have improved the average daily attendance of students to use i service a for evaluative Pur ate Lys ses and to better enforce the s France and parental responsibility statutes.
