The results from the Kentucky Unbridled Learning Assessments were released at midnight.
We need to take the opportunity to celebrate the successes from our results, we also need to step back and evaluate the challenges that are evident in many areas. These challenges are being met by the problems of practice identified in July for each school. From the data analysis conducted last week each school is developing strategies to address gap scores and novice reduction at the classroom level. Most of these problems of practice emphasize learning outcomes focused on increased rigor and deeper learning around 21st century skills for college and career.
Our overall district problem of practice is very clearly aligned with this work: Engage students with innovative teaching so that ALL can graduate with the requisite skills they need to be successful in the postsecondary pathway of their choosing.
Our work with student success is a marathon and not a sprint. We will continue to work to identify and communicate pathways for our students to become college and career ready. The hard work and commitment of our teachers and staff to the students of our district is evident every day.
We have also released an Annual Report about the great things happening in the Owensboro Public Schools each year in conjunction with the release of state assessment data. The state data is an important and very public barometer of our success, but we remain firm in our commitment to educating the whole child and using multiple methods of monitoring and assessing student performance in our district.
