  1. Student Success InitiativeEnsuring Success for All Students "It is the Mission of Region VIII Education Service Center to create a partnership between school districts, teachers, school board members, universities and community colleges, community members, and business leaders to provide quality services for school improvement that will prepare students to cope with the challenges of the future" It is the Vision of Region 8 ESC to develop a district - wide systemic culture to sustain a high performing learning community.

  2. Objectives Review SSI requirements Instruction Assessment process GPC meetings Highlight updates Discuss planning issues in implementing SSI

  3. Basics of SSI • What is SSI? • SSI (enacted in 1999) is a system of support structured to ensure that all students gain sufficient understanding of the TEKS • The grade advancement requirements of SSI apply to: • Grade 3 (beginning in 2002-03) • Reading • Grade 5 (beginning 2004-05) • Reading • Mathematics • Grade 8 (beginning in 2007-08) • Reading • Mathematics

  4. Basics of SSI • Under SSI, a student in Grade 3, 5 or 8 may only advance to the next grade level by: • Demonstrating proficiency in the applicable subject areas • i.e., passing the TAKS, TAKS-Accommodated, TAKS-M in Reading (Grade 3) or Reading and Math (Grade 5 and 8); OR • Unanimous decision of the GPC that the student is likely to perform at grade level at the end of the next year given additional accelerated instruction • Testing requirements: • Up to 3 testing opportunities in Spring and Summer • Accelerated instruction after each testing opportunity

  5. Basics of SSI • Grade advancement testing is only part of SSI • SSI is an overall system of support for student academic achievement, which includes: • Informal and formal assessment of student needs at preceding grades (with early intervention activities to address those needs) • Continuous and ongoing evaluation by a variety of means • Research-based instructional programs • Targeted accelerated instruction informed by multiple testing opportunities and other means of evaluation • A GPC that decides on an individual student basis the most effective way to support a student’s academic achievement on grade level • A district-determined alternate assessment option for the third testing opportunity • Accelerated instruction plans for every student who does not meet the standard on the required grade advancement assessments after three opportunities (whether retained or promoted)

  6. Basics of SSI • SSI requirements apply to: • All students who take TAKS • All students receiving special education services who take TAKS-Accommodated and TAKS-M • SSI requirements do NOT apply to: • Students receiving special education services who take TAKS-Alternate Teachers assess, make observations and provide remediation throughout the school year • Recent immigrant LEP students who have been exempted from state assessment by their LPAC (LEP-exempt)

  7. Application/Reporting Requirements • ARI/AMI Application is the funding source for 2008-09 school year to target Reading and Math instruction • ARI/AMI Application for 2008-09 deadline to submit is September 30. • The Consolidated Reading Initiative Report (CRIR) is the end of year evaluation of how the funds were spent for the 2008-09 school year. • CRIR for 2008-09 will be due September 30, 2009. • ARI/AMI and CRIR are located in eGrants Production.
