What is Standards Referenced Reporting (SRR)?
Standards Referenced Reporting (SRR) is a research-based approach to assessing and reporting student achievement. SRR focuses on what students know and are able to do. Teachers teach, assess and provide constant feedback to students on where they are currently in their learning, where they need to go to meet each standard, and how they will reach each standard. Interventions and enrichment are provided to students based on where they are with their learning and understanding. When a student struggles to reach proficiency, MCSD staff intervene on the student’s behalf to provide interventions and additional opportunities to learn and relearn the standards. If a student demonstrates proficiency on a standard prior to teaching and learning occurring, MCSD staff provide enrichment opportunities to enhance student application of the standard.
What are Standard Improvement Days?
Standard Improvement Days (SID) are an opportunity for students to improve their scores on course standards. Only students that are not proficient in the standards and students who owe detention minutes are required to attend on the Standard Improvement Days.
On these two days, teachers and paraeducators will be working with students in small group settings to facilitate learning. Our goal is to help each and every student to be successful and to have all the learning necessary to set them up for success in the future. Despite the opportunity to reassess and improve, there is no guarantee of success just for showing up these days.
Once your student is meeting the learning expectations for all their courses or has his/her detentions served, he/she will be excused from attendance for the remainder of the day and may sign out in the office.
We will provide transportation on our normal bus schedule and normal bus routes. As school transportation will be run on the normal schedule, we will provide supervision for students who have completed all their requirements and are waiting for the end of the day to take school transportation. Also, lunch will be served during these two days.
Students who are proficient are still welcome to attend Standard Improvement Days if they would like to reassess in an effort to improve any standard scores in any of their courses.
Students will be informed by letter whether they are required to attend.
Please talk to your child and encourage them to improve their scores and make up their detentions ahead of time.
