Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

Newport-Mesa Unified School District has partnered with Hanover Research, an independent research firm, to explore parents’ experiences with our district. The findings from this exploration will support the development of our district’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

 

As part of this exploration, Hanover Research will conduct a series of telephone interviews with parents. These conversations are designed to explore how parents engage with our district and their child’s school, and how parent engagement could be improved.

  

Participants will be selected at random and participation in these interviews is voluntary. However, it is important that members of the Newport-Mesa school community participate because only they can tell us about their perceptions and experiences. Please note that participation or non-participation will not affect any relationships you or your student(s) have with teachers, peers, or administrators. If you choose to participate, your responses will be kept anonymous.

 

You may be contacted by Hanover Research in the coming weeks to request your participation. If you have any questions or do not want to participate in these conversations, please email Hanover Research’s Content Director, Cate Keller at: ckeller@hanoverresearch.com or call 714-424-8919.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is considering a shift to a collegiate calendar to more closely align with neighboring school districts and local colleges. This shift would start the school year up to three weeks prior to the Labor Day holiday and end the first semester prior to the winter break.

 

As a unified school district, this decision impacts everyone; therefore, NMUSD is in the process of seeking input from the school community regarding the potential shift. Please see the Collegiate Calendar Fact Sheet link below. The Fact Sheet includes background information, dates for informational meetings, benefits, concerns/frequently asked questions and the survey link (survey will be available November 1-15).

 

Your input will help guide the Calendar Committee in developing their recommendation. The final decision is determined through the negotiations process and adopted by the Board of Education.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District Students Show Growth from 2015 to 2017 in Statewide English and Math Assessment

 

Students in Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) show growth from 2015 to 2017 in statewide English Language Arts (ELA) and math assessments. NMUSD students also remain above the Orange County and California averages in ELA and math.  

 

The Smarter Balanced assessments are part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), which tests ELA and math standards for students in grades three through eight and grade 11. The Smarter Balanced assessments are computer adaptive tests that adjust the difficulty of the test items based on how a test taker responds. This provides a more precise measure of student performance.

 

The Smarter Balanced assessments, now in the third year, show an increase of 4.57 percentage points in NMUSD students having met or exceeded ELA standards, and an increase of 3.99 percentage points in students having met or exceeded math standards, when compared to the 2015 baseline assessments.

 

Many NMUSD schools have shown impressive growth during the three year period. Ensign Intermediate School maintained growth all three years in both ELA (9.0 percentage point growth) and math standards (8.50 percentage point growth). Nine schools have shown a growth of more than ten percent in ELA standards, with Adams Elementary showing a growth of 19.23 percentage points. Five schools have shown double digit growth in math standards, again with Adams topping the list at 17.13 percentage point growth.

 

Specific to Title I schools, nearly all have shown growth in ELA and math standards. Adams, Sonora, and Paularino Elementary Schools have shown double digit growth in both ELA and math standards.

 

“It is encouraging to see our Title I schools performing well,” said Deputy Superintendent and Chief Academic Officer Russell Lee-Sung. “This is a testament to the focus of our teachers, and principals to improve our instructional program for all our students,” he said.

 

Our district has been focused on providing support for classroom intervention systems to better implement differentiation of instructional strategies. This allows teachers and instructional assistants to provide targeted support to struggling students and additional enrichment opportunities for high achieving students, such as small group instruction with specifically tailored instructional materials.

 

ELA and math results for English Learners have remained relatively flat throughout the three year assessments. Our district is focused on improving English Learner proficiency by providing additional supports, such as the adoption of new elementary English Language Arts, English Language Development, and math instructional materials. Our district has added two Instructional Specialists in 2017/18, for a total of three that are solely dedicated to improving English Learner proficiency in all subject areas.

 

Looking at grade levels, third and sixth grade students have shown consistent growth in both ELA and math, throughout the three years of the assessments. While the district looks at improvement at all grade levels, there has been a strong focus on the third grade foundational skills. It is widely known that if students are not reading at grade level by third grade, it is increasingly more difficult for them to meet future grade level performance.

 

Comparing results from 2016 to 2017 assessments, NMUSD students showed a slight growth of .57 percentage points in ELA standards and a decline of 1.01 percentage points in math standards.

 

“We are confident that the selection of new elementary math and ELA/ELD instructional materials being implemented this school year will improve student proficiency,” said Deputy Superintendent and Chief Academic Officer Russell Lee-Sung.

 

The current statewide assessments only focus on ELA and math standards, however it is anticipated that the California Science Test (CAST) will be included in the state testing program in 2019. In the meantime, NMUSD teachers continue to work on the next generation Science Standards (NGSS) to prepare for the CAST.

 

Individual student 2017 assessments were mailed to parents. The NMUSD Smarter Balanced testing schedule for 2018 is anticipated for March 20 through June 15.

 

While statewide assessments provide valuable information about overall student progress and areas for improvement, they do not provide a holistic view of student achievement. The new California School Dashboard is expected to provide a more detailed view of performance, based on multiple factors, beyond state testing results. These factors include graduation rates, suspension rates, chronic absenteeism and college and career readiness. However, the State is not expected to provide this data until December 2017.
