    Accountability for Student Performance:

    1. Students participating in alternative learning experiences will be evaluated as follows:

      1. Each student’s progress will be evaluated monthly, based on the learning goals and performance objectives defined in the written student learning plan.

      2. The progress review will be conducted by certificated instructional staff and include direct personal contact (as defined by District policy) with the student.  The reviews will be shared with the student.

      3. Certificated instructional staff will determine whether the student is making satisfactory progress in meeting the written student learning plan.

      4. If the student fails to make satisfactory progress for two consecutive evaluation periods an intervention plan will be developed and implemented.  The intervention plan will be developed by certificated instructional staff in collaboration with the student.

      5. If after three consecutive evaluations, the student is not making progress, a new plan designed to meet the student’s needs will be developed and implemented.

    2. Students in alternative learning programs will be assessed using the State assessment for the student’s grade level and using other annual assessments required by the District.

    3. Students attending an alternative learning program outside their district will participate in any annual State assessments required by the district of residence.  The enrolling district will coordinate the test taking.    

    Program Evaluation
