• Evesham Township School District (ETSD) Summary

    The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) released in March 2019 NJ School Performance Reports.  These are annual reports that the state developed to provide the public with various data including school-level demographics, state assessment scores, information about staff working in a school, and more for the 2017-2018 school year.  The performance reports provide a brief overview of various areas such as: enrollment, participation & performance, student growth, attendance, student discipline, technology readiness, per-pupil expenditures, and school climate. The following four areas have state targets and are further defined below:  Participation Rate, Academic Achievement, Academic Progress, and Chronic Absenteeism.

    Participation Rate, Academic Achievement, and Academic Progress include measures based on the English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics (M) sections of the NJ PARCC, administered to students in grades three to eight, from the spring of 2018.  In addition to PARCC data, this section of the school performance report also includes other state required assessments that are applicable to the school including DLM, ACCESS for ELLs, and NAEP.

    The NJDOE continues to utilize a state participation target rate of 95 percent annually for PARCC.  A school is determined to meet the state’s annual expectations if all identified subgroups within a school either met the state participation rate in 2018 or by utilizing a three-year average.  In ETSD, all eight schools met the participation target for the schoolwide population.  Three elementary schools made the participation targets in all subgroups. The remaining five schools missed in one or more subgroup areas.

    The NJDOE also established a state proficiency goal of 80 percent for PARCC.  In addition, annual progress targets were developed for each subgroup within a school based on initial baseline data from this relatively new assessment that will be changing in future years.  Annual progress targets are designed to increase the percentage of proficient students in all subgroups so that by the 2029-2030 school year all schools across the state will meet the state proficiency goal.  A school is determined to meet the state’s annual expectations if it either meets the state proficiency goal or its designated progress target.  In ETSD, five of our eight schools met the identified progress targets in LAL and M for the schoolwide population.  Two of those elementary schools met the progress targets in all subgroups, with the other three missing in one or more subgroup areas.  Two elementary schools met the schoolwide target in LA; however, missed it in Math. The remaining elementary school missed the schoolwide target in both LA and Math.  These schools also missed the progress targets in one or more subgroup areas.

    Academic Progress, formerly referred to as Student Growth, measures student performance from one year to the next on the PARCC when compared to students with a similar history of performance on this assessment.  A score is then divided into three student growth percentile (SGP) levels:  low growth (SGP score less than 35), typical growth (SGP score between 35 and 65), high growth (SGP score higher than 65). The NJDOE established statewide standard is 40-59.9, 60 or higher exceeds the standard.  In this area, all eight ETSD schools met the state established targets in LA for the schoolwide population, with six of the eight schools meeting the schoolwide growth target for Math.  Two schools met growth targets in all subgroup areas.

    Chronic Absenteeism (CA) is measured in schools across the state based on each student’s attendance at school.  A chronically absent student is defined as a student who was not present for any reason, excused or unexcused absence, for more than ten percent of the school year (or total days possible for that individual student).  In this area, all eight ETSD schools met the state average targets for the schoolwide population.  Two of the eight schools met targets in all subgroup areas, while the other six missed in one or more subgroup areas.

    In addition to chronic absentee rates, this section of the performance report also includes a graph of absenteeism spans.  For middle school, Math & Spanish course participation, along with visual and performing arts enrollment is highlighted as well.
