Please pardon the cross-posting.
This is an FYI for anyone who may have an interest in providing input about Oregon’s statewide report card or who many want to forward this to others who may be interested. I didn’t find a date for when the survey will end.
ODE’s ESSA page includes a link to the survey and an FAQ about the report card update: http://www.oregon.gov/ode/rules-and-policies/ESSA/Pages/default.aspx.

Subject: Report Card Redesign Update and Timeline

Dear Colleagues:
This message is to update you on ODE’s redesign of school and district report cards. The redesigned report cards will be released in October 2018 and will include two primary products:

1.      An at-a-glance report card. This full-color printable communication tool is designed specifically for families and community members.

2.      An online, multiple measures dashboard. This web-based tool will contain detailed information about Oregon schools and districts.

We Need Your Input
Feedback from stakeholders will serve as the foundation for ODE’s approach to the overall redesign. Please share and take our online survey here<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/55FTJJL>.

Why the Redesign?

During the development of the Oregon State Plan under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)<http://www.oregon.gov/ode/rules-and-policies/ESSA/Pages/default.aspx>, ODE conducted extensive outreach and tribal consultation, much of which will inform the report card redesign. In particular, citizens advised ODE to:

·         Use multiple measures of student success including academic performance, attendance, graduation rate, student engagement, proficiency in relevant skills, or the percentage of students entering and succeeding in postsecondary education and career.

·         Focus on individual student growth and achievement toward students’ personal goals.

·         Measure school quality beyond academic achievement including school climate, staff absenteeism, extracurricular activities, family engagement, number and quality of clubs and sports, and academic support to struggling students.

In tandem with this community-based stakeholder outreach, ODE convened an accountability work group comprised of educators, administrators, families, and other key stakeholders who produced three main recommendations:

·         Develop a multiple-measures dashboard to report school success.

·         Do not provide overall ratings for schools.

·         Include Chronic Absenteeism, Freshman-On-Track, and Five-year Completion Rates in the state’s accountability system.
