Things to Know about ESSA Designations

As you know, Iowa and other states developed systems for school accountability and support following passage of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which replaced the No Child Left Behind Act. The Iowa School Performance Profile that's created as part of ESSA becomes public information sometime next week.

 

Background: What's ESSA?
Through ESSA, each school receives an overall score based on performance on a core set of accountability measures including student participation on state assessments, academic achievement (proficiency and average scale score), student growth, graduation rate, progress in achieving English language proficiency, and a Conditions for Learning student survey. Schools also receive a score for each subgroup of students (subgroups must have 20 or more students to receive a score). Based on these scores, some schools will be identified for support and improvement (Comprehensive or Targeted).

 

How does a school's Performance Profile relate to the AEA's Support of a District?
Grant Wood AEA is prepared to support schools with continuous improvement in relation to ESSA designations. Our GWAEA Training Cadre members have been meeting with building administrators (and potentially leadership teams) for several months to review ESSA and what supports may be provided.

 

Additionally, Iowa’s AEAs and the DE have outlined supports for schools identified as comprehensive and targeted under ESSA. During the past three and a half years, Iowa’s AEAs, the DE, and several school districts, have been developing tools and professional learning to support schools in meeting the needs of students with disabilities. These tools have been designed to support teachers in implementing effective Specially Designed Instruction (SDI).  Additionally, the tools specific to K-6 literacy use the C4K Intervention System Guide with a specific focus on supporting persistently struggling learners including those with disabilities.   

 

Finally, Grant Wood AEA will host a Regional ESSA Administrator Information session next week for administrators whose school receives a designation of Targeted or Comprehensive.  Facilitated by the Department of Ed, the session is designed to support schools in understanding their ESSA designations and planning for next steps. 

 

Questions:
You can contact a member of the Training Cadre or visit the ESSA Support Site, a repository of tools and resources to support the work aligned to Iowa's Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Plan.  

 

The GWAEA Training Cadre includes:

 

School Improvement Consultants: Chad Blanchard, Myra Hall, Kelly Jones, Lauren Keating, Dawn Kruse, Andrea Townsley, Erikka Vosmek, Alison West

 

General Education Literacy Consultants: Wendy Anderson, Tom Bredfield, Andrea Compton, Molly Dabroski, Jodie Eidahl, Michelle Heiserman, Laura Johnson, Christopher Klostermann, Katie Mallie, Richard McGrath, Jess Quandahl, Melissa Scherkenbach, Sara Sheets, Wanda Steuri, Dyan Sundermeyer

Providing Clarity to Winter Weather Closures at GWAEA

The winter season officially starts next week, and we want to provide a little clarity around the process we use for closing the agency and staff options for working during those situations when we might close.

winter weather trees with snow

First off,  we want staff to make an individual decision about whether it’s safe to travel, regardless of the decision to open or close the agency. If at all possible, we want to support our districts when they are open, but staff should never feel their work demands supersede their personal safety.

 

The Chief Administrator will closely watch the closing decisions made by our districts to determine the status of the AEA. We may close the AEA to the public when all or the overwhelming majority of districts close because we want our staff to use their work hours to support districts. If the Chief Administrator makes the decision to close any of the three agency centers, the communications office will notify staff of this decision through email, by a phone call, through staff voicemail, through a posting on our website, and by sharing it via KCRG.

 

If GWAEA announces that any agency centers will be closed, that means our buildings are closed to the public. Unless the weather is so extreme that we’re unable to clear the building lots, staff may still, with supervisor approval, come into the building to work, go to a district, or complete a scheduled home visit. Closing our offices means that our building doors will be locked and we would not allow external visitors, guests, students, etc. into our facility that day.

 

If you do not feel like it's safe to travel to work, we support that decision and offer several options to account for the missed work time through a calendar change, or by using personal leave, emergency leave, or leave without pay.  Staff can use comp time if it was previously earned and approved by their supervisor. Many professional staff, consultants, and programmers may have the ability, with supervisor approval, to work from home.

 

Please ensure you’re making decisions that reflect your own personal safety, and that you’re consulting with your supervisor about the best options for accounting for your time. These decisions are never cut and dry, and we want to be as supportive as possible in helping staff understand their options.

 

Staff who would like additional information on this guidance are encouraged to talk with their supervisor.


GWAEA Board Election

During last night's meeting, Grant Wood AEA Board Member Sue Gates stepped down from her role as Board Vice President and Board Member Randy Bauer was sworn into the position by President Jim Green.

Updated Self-Perception Survey for Staff Due Dec, 21, 2018

For the past several years our staff have worked hard toward all of our agency’s goals, and we’re updating one tool that we use to track progress toward goal #3, “To increase educator capacity to bring equity and accessibility to learning through technology, resources, and innovative practices.”

GWAEA Goal #3: Increase educator capacity to bring equity and accessibility to learning through technology, resources and innovative practices.

“In the past we used this self-perception survey to measure our staff’s comfort and ability in using things like Zoom and email, and after achieving great gains in these areas, we’re ready to expand our learning to include some new terms and concepts,” said Stacy Behmer, Coordinator of Digital Learning and Media Services.


New Terms and Concepts Measured this Year

This year’s survey will measure staff awareness and use of accessible educational materials, or AEM. AEM is a term used for resources and technologies usable for learning across the widest range of individual variability, regardless of format or features. It also will look at staff use of branding materials, media center items and other agency resources that are used in partnership with our districts.


“We expect that many of these terms and skills will be new to some of our staff,” commented Behmer. “This survey will serve as a baseline for us as we develop training and resources to support this work over the upcoming year.”


Survey Details

All agency staff will receive an email link to the survey on Friday, Dec. 14. Staff can access the questionnaire from any device with internet access, and it will take about 10 minutes to complete.
The survey will remain open until Dec. 21, so the results can be used to plan supports for the upcoming year. Data will be shared with managers and teams.


Thank you for taking part in this important initiative!
