CUSDWatch Comment

California's public education system has gone through tremendous changes since 2010.

The "California Way" saw the implementation of:

Common Core, 

LCFF (Local Control Funding Formula),

LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan)

ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), 

SBAC Testing, and

the journey to model California's K-12 system after the Canadian model of education put forth by Michael Fullan.

The Canadian model is founded on the following principles:

Differentiated learning does not matter-

Class size does not matter-

Professional development for staff and teachers is the single most important factor in student success. 

Since 2012, CUSD staff has systematically eliminated Honors Classes, the GATE program and accelerated programming for high achieving students. 6th grade math placement has; by design, limited student access to higher math tracks. CUSD is now the only District in south Orange County that does not offer Geometry Honors classes for students. 

CUSD has made curriculum choices that made it more difficult for students who were on a path to entering a 4-year selective college or university after high school, succeed. Unique to CUSD is requiring all students to take CCP and Health as a stand alone class required to graduate. This year long block prevented students from taking a class that would satisfy an a-g requirement. Students wishing to attend a four year selective college or University after high school were forced to take summer school two summers and/or zero periods in order to stay on track to complete their a-g course work. CCP and Health are CUSDs' largest credit recovery component.

The data now clearly shows that this is a failed approach to education. No matter how well trained an individual teacher may be, it is not possible for a single teacher to reach a class of 34+ students and meet the individual needs of students of differing abilities. The range of students encompasses "newcomers" who do not speak English and may not even be fluent or literate in their own language, special needs children who have been mainstreamed, to truly Gifted students and everything in between. When you add to that; the fact that there is so much emphasis on professional development, that teachers are chronically absent from their classrooms, you have students that are actually being held back and harmed by this flawed model for California's K-12 public education system.

The data shows that of the four levels of students measured by the SBAC:

"Standard Exceeded"

"Standard Met"

"Standard Nearly Met", and 

"Standard Not Met"

The ONLY group that performed well was the group of students that "Exceeded" the standard.

The group of students that "Met" the standard saw four straight years of across the board declines in academic performance which would evidence the fact that these students require differentiated learning to reach their academic potential

The data for those students that "Nearly Met", or did "Not Meet" the standard is mixed. Any improvement in academic performance of these two groups was negligible... (measured to the right of the decimal point). 

In conclusion- 3/4 of CUSDs students have been denied an educational curriculum that was designed to provide all students with an opportunity to reach their individual academic potential.

It is also worth noting that unique to CUSD was Trustee Lynn Hatton-Hodson.

Trustee Lynn Hatton-Hodson owned, and continues to own an educational company named InnovateEd. Though out the implementation of all of these changes Trustee Haton-Hodson's company InnovateEd partnered with Michael Fullan and ASCA to develop LCAP California and implement the LCFF.

Were the curriculum choices CUSD made based on what was in the educational interest of CUSD students, or the business interests of InnovateEd and Trustee Lynn Hatton-Hodson?

It is also worth noting that Dr. Susan Holiday, Associate Superintendent of Education Services; the person in charge of curriculum, is an IT person with a background in Health. There is substantial documentation to show that her major work has been to develop CUSDs' local dashboard which was designed to capture the social, emotional and health data of students and to implement California's Healthy Youth Act.

Now that there are three consecutive years of academic performance data that shows no improvement for 3/4 of CUSD students, OCDE must step in.

See: "Districts on the Move"  March 2018 White Paper by InnovateEd, Michael Fullan and Joanne Quinn

See: CUSDWatch: "No State will Measure Social-Emotional Learning Under ESSA... but CUSD is!"

 

CUSDWatch Comment
 
When the SBAC was introduced, the state promised that it would not be used to evaluate students. Its purpose was to evaluate schools. However, now we see that it is being used to evaluate the academic performance of students.  How can that be if the data is not valid?
 
The SBAC Test has no "norm". 
 
The test changes from year to year.
 
When a particular student gets a wrong answer the next question is an easier question. When a student gets a correct answer, the next question becomes harder. Is a year over year comparison really valid?
 
If the SBAC was a nationally normed test (like the ACT or SAT) then the data could be used to evaluate the academic performance of CUSD as a District. 
 
What is the real purpose of this test?

70.32% of All Students meet or exceed the state English Language Arts standard. 

College Readiness

College Readiness is determined by 11th Grade SBAC test results.

11th Grade Test Results are important to determine "College Readiness". Most students planning to attend a 4-year college will take college entrance exams the summer before 12th grade, or early in the fall of their senior year.

Students who "Exceeded" the standard are ready for college level work and have mastered sufficient skills to do well on the English Language Arts section of their college entrance exams.

Students who "Met" the standard have demonstrated progress towards mastering the skills needed, but are not there yet. They may master their skills by the end of their senior year.

Students labeled as standard "Nearly Met" and "Not Met" will need remedial work before beginning college level course work in math.

To be admitted to a highly selective 4-year college or university (such as a UC) a student should "Exceed" the standard by the end of their 11th grade.

Some 4-year selective colleges like CSU will allow students to complete a-g requirements their senior year.

CUSD 11th Grade English Language Arts
Standard Exceeded Level 4 43.75% Ready for 4- year selective College
Standard Met Level 3  30.04% Maybe Ready by Senior year
Standard Nearly Met Level 2  15.58% Limited to Community College or Job
Standard Not Met Level 1  10.64% Limited to Community College or Job

Los Alamitos 43.97%
CUSD 43.75%
Laguna Beach  42.97% 
Saddleback 37.35%
Brea Olinda 30.19%

 

The SBAC results show that 1/4 of its students have the skills needed to attend a selective 4-year college or university. 3/4 are not ready and may be limited to Community College for remedial work or a job after high school.

a-g completion rates

College Readiness: CUSD a-g course completion rate: 53.7%  

To gain entrance into a 4-year selective college or university (any where in the country, including UC and CSU), students are required to:

  1. Complete all a-g course requirements, and
  2. Perform well on College entrance exams (ACT and SAT), and
  3. Have a competitive GPA that shows "Rigor".

Student are competing on a national and international level to be admitted into a four year selective college or university. Colleges are not impressed with the minimum curriculum. Academic "Rigor" makes a difference when applying to colleges. A 3.8 GPA taking standard classes is not as impressive as a lower GPA taking Honors or AP or IB Classes. A competitive applicant must show all... a good GPA combined with academic rigor, completion of all a-g course work and high performance on SAT/ACT college entrance exams.

a-g Completion Rates District Comparison 
Laguna Beach  76.5%   75%
Los Alamitos 74%  
Irvine  69%  
Brea Olinda 55.1% 

50%

CUSD 53.7%
Saddleback 53.4%
Brea Olinda 55.1%

 

*46.3% of CUSD students will have no choice but to attend Community College or get a job after high school because a 4-year selective college requires students to complete all a-g course work as a requirement to apply. 

CUSDs' odd curriculum choices has greatly reduced its students ability to complete a-g course work.

For example: Requiring all freshman to take CCP/Health as a year long course that the State does not require for graduation, starts every freshman at CUSD one year behind their counterparts at other districts in completing their a-g course work.
