Student Accountability Standards: Implementation Guide.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
This booklet provides guidance for implementing a standards policy in North Carolina. In 1997, the Committee on Standards and Accountability was created by the North Carolina General Assembly to advise the State Board of Education on a policy for student performance standards. The committee was charged with considering standards for promotion for elementary, middle, and high school grades, and grade-level student proficiency benchmarks for entrance into college or into the work force. One of the first actions taken by the committee was to support six cornerstone competencies: (1) communication; (2) using numbers and data; (3) processing information; (4) problem solving; (5) technology; and (6) teamwork. With these and other recommendations in mind, a policy was developed. The contents of this guide include the final policy; implementation suggestions for superintendents, local boards of education, central-office staff, and teachers; action plans for implementation at the LEA and school levels; words of advice from superintendents, principals, teachers, and parents; and key points and recommended topics for professional development. Also included in the guide is a large number of sample forms covering a wide variety of school issues. (WFA)
