Reading and Mathematics Improvement Goals. Learning and Teaching Support. OSPI Bulletin.
This bulletin outlines the reading and mathematics improvement goals for the Washington public schools. In 1998, the Washington legislature required that school districts establish 3-year reading improvement performance goals for elementary schools to be achieved at the end of the 2000-01 school year. Additional improvement goals were adopted by the Legislature in 1999 for mathematics in elementary and middle/junior high schools. The Academic Achievement and Accountability Commission adopted a rule in the spring of 2001 that requires school boards to establish reading and mathematics goals for elementary, middle/junior high, and high schools. Enclosed in this bulletin are: a summary of reading and mathematics improvement goals; modifications made in spring 2001; a form to calculate minimum goals; goal setting requirements (WAC 3-20-100); reporting and planning requirements (RCW 28A.655.100); and questions and answers. The following types of 2004 Reading and Mathematics Goals School District Reporting Forms are also included: School District Goals; School Goals; and Request Form for a Waiver to Adopt a Lower School Goal.
