SPSA: Single Plan of Student Achievement

What data did you use to form this goal (findings from data analysis)?

Students will be formally assessed in each content area three times a year for their comprehension and writing skills using the Smarter Balance writing rubrics for Argument, Expository and Narrative. Language Arts classes will also use the Engage New York module assessments which are given four times a year. We will also look at Smarter Balance results for ELA (English Language Arts) to make sure students are progressing towards standard.
