Both schools plan to appeal rating
NBISD’s New Braunfels Middle School passing at a rate of 41 percent. Both plan to appeal the ratings.
Vickie Pursch, GISD executive director of curriculum and instruction, said errors in tests given and data processing were responsible for the unacceptable rating. With the problems corrected, Pursch said the SDAA II passing rates for CMS would reach 52 percent and bring the school up to the acceptable rating.
Hie past school year marked the first time the state gave the SDAA II, and kirsch said the test was the first instance she has seen of the state counting a new test toward accountability ratings.
“Anytime it’s the first year you give a test, a lot of things happen that you don’t anticipate on both the state and district side,” Pursch said. “This is die first time in my experience that a new test has been given and it’s not a field test situation."
Though “all student" category TAKS scores at CMS were
above 70 percent, the SDAA ll rating dropped CMS to the unacceptable status—a rating Pursch says is not representative of die district or school.
“That’s what’s so frustrating for me," Pursch said. “The point of the rating system is to communicate to the public how our schools are doing. If you’ve got a school rated on 17 indicators and one of them sinks you, are we really representing how our schools are doing?”
CMS Principal Patti Vlieger said that the rating was “absolutely not” representative of the school’s performance.
“I was kind of shocked because when you look at the 17 base indicators, 14 sit at recognized status and two sit at acceptable status,” she said. “Its almost devastating that one indicator pulls you down to an unacceptable rating. When we got our TAKS scores back they had dramatically improved over last year, and then all of sudden, we got hit with this.”
Since the SDAA II tests have not and will not be released for the next year, administrators cannot use previous tests as assessments or practice exams as they have done with released TARS tests.
I lowever, Pursch and Vlieger said (MS is working on bolstering scores by including special
needs students and teachers in regular classrooms, which will expose them to essential knowledge and skills found on the test.
Pursche said though she is not entirely happy with the rating she is pleased with the district’s progress.
“I’m not tickled with the rating, but overall, I’m delighted with our scores themselves. We do well and (the state) raises the bar and somehow we step up to the bar again and again. It s great to know the hard work pays off for the kids.”
Rosalyn Bratcher, NBISD assistant superintendent for instructional dervices, said New Braunfels Middle School’s unacceptable rating was a result of a handful of special education students who failed to pass the SI )AA 11. In order for a subgroup to count as an indicator, tile subgroup must contain 30 students.
“This rating is not indicative of tile majority of students at NBMS,” Bratcher said. “Parents should know the performance on the TAKS at NBMS, which measures the performance of most students, falls at or above recognized and acceptable ratings."
All rating appeals will be evaluated by TEA and updated, if applicable, in October.
