Instruction

Evaluation Of The Instructional Program

The San Benito County Board of Education (County Board) recognizes that it is accountable to students, parents/guardians, and the community for the effectiveness of the San Bentio County Office of Education’s (SBCOE) educational program in meeting SBCOE goals for student learning. The Superintendent or designee shall conduct a continual evaluation of the curriculum and the instructional program in order to improve student achievement.

 

(cf. 0500 – Accountability)

(cf. 6000 – Concepts and Roles)

(cf. 6141 – Curriculum Development and Evaluation)

 

The Superintendent or designee shall provide the County Board regular reports on student progress toward Board-established standards of expected achievement at each grade level in each area of study. In addition, he/she shall evaluate and report data for each SBCOE school and for every numerically significant student subgroup, as defined in Education Code 52052, including, but not limited to, school and subgroup performance on statewide achievement indicators and progress toward goals specified in the SBCOE’s local control and accountability plan (LCAP).

 

(cf. 0460 – Local Control and Accountability Plan)

(cf. 6011 – Academic Standards)

(cf. 6162.5 – Student Assessment)

(cf. 6162.51 – State Academic Achievement Tests)

(cf. 6173.1 – Education for Foster Youth)

(cf. 6174 – Education for English Learners)

 

Based on these reports, the County Superintendent shall take appropriate actions to maintain the effectiveness of programs and to improve the quality of education that SBCOE students receive.

 

Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Accreditation

 

The County Board believes that accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) can foster excellence and ongoing academic improvement in the SBCOE’s schools. The results of the accreditation process also may demonstrate to parents/guardians and the community that the schools are meeting their goals and objectives and the WASC criteria for school effectiveness through a viable instructional program.

 

The Superintendent or designee shall undertake procedures whereby SBCOE schools may achieve and maintain full WASC accreditation status. The schools shall conduct a self-study in accordance with WASC requirements, cooperate with the WASC committee during a site visit, and develop and review action plans to increase the effectiveness of the instructional program for students. The Superintendent or designee shall regularly report to the Board on the status of SBCOE schools and any WASC recommendations for school improvement.

 

The results of any inspection of a school by WASC, or any other the accrediting agency, shall be published not later than 60 days after the results are made available to the school.

 

Publication shall be by notifying each parent/guardian in writing and/or by posting the information on the SBCOE’s web site, as determined by the Superintendent or designee.  (Education Code 35178.4)

 

If any SBCOE school loses its accreditation status, the County Board shall give official notice at a regularly scheduled Board meeting. The Superintendent or designee shall provide written notification to each parent/guardian of a student in the school that the school has lost its accreditation status, including the potential consequences of the loss of accreditation status. This notice shall also be posted on the SBCOE’s web site. (Education Code 35178.4)
