Year 3 Magnet Schools Assistance Program Annual Progress Report, 2009-10. E&R Report No. 10.09
Brasfield, Jon; Cárdenas, Virginia
Wake County Public School System
The three Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) schools: East Garner International Baccalaureate Magnet Middle School (EGMMS), Garner International Baccalaureate Magnet High School (GMHS), and Southeast Raleigh Leadership and Technology Magnet High School (SRMHS) have shown progress on MSAP performance measures during the 3rd year of the grant. This summary offers highlights of the project's goals and the extent to which the Year 3 outcomes and performance measures were met. The approved MSAP grant requires that data on 17 performance measures (PM) be collected in each project year. Of the 17, one PM (5.1) can not be adequately measured until three years after federal funds are ended. Of the 16 remaining, six belong to the "Desegregation and Choice" category, two belong to "Building Capacity," and eight (seven for EGMMS) belong to "Academic Achievement of Students." To maintain a closer check on the implementation of grant-funded programs and initiatives at the schools, a series of benchmarks was instituted for each school. The benchmarks were created by teams at each school consisting of the MSAP evaluator, recruiter, program director, and school faculty and administrators. Of the benchmarks measured as of the end of grant year 3, all schools were performing well with respect to benchmark attainment, with only one not yet obtained. This report indicates that MSAP implementation continues to reflect increased efforts to implement innovative educational methods and programs at each of the three MSAP schools. Each school has established strategic processes to address targets related to desegregation and choice, building capacity, and improving the academic achievement of students. Although progress has been made, much work remains to be done in order to achieve the original goals of the MSAP grant, particularly since Year 1 was significantly impacted by the delay in hiring key personnel. Appended are: (1) Tables; (2) Voluntary Desegregation Plan; and (3) WCPSS Districting and Assignment Policies.
