Planning, Accountability and Assessment Update – November 2017

Winter midterm and final exams begin soon for all middle and high schools as the first semester comes to a close.  The winter iReady diagnostic assessment window will also begin in December for elementary schools. These assessments provide valuable data that is used to monitor student progress, inform classroom instruction and show mastery of standards.

The St Johns County School District (SJCSD) is accredited by AdvancED. The 2017-18 school year is an accreditation review year for the district. Each school will submit a School Quality Factors Diagnostic, which is a document that requires school teams to reflect on their continuous improvement journey. School teams have been reviewing survey and classroom observation data and collecting evidence that exemplifies their improvement process.  An AdvancED team will be on-site in St Johns County from April 2nd-5th, 2018. The AdvancED team will review the evidence provided by schools, conduct stakeholder interviews, tour schools, observe classrooms, and listen to presentations from district staff. At the end of their visit, the team will make an accreditation recommendation for the district.
