Statewide Indicators of Educational System Health: 2014 Report to the Legislature
Washington State Board of Education
This report is in response to the requirement of RCW 28A.150.550 that the State Board of Education, with assistance from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), the Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board (WTECB), the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee (EOGOAC), and the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC), report on the statewide indicators of educational system health by December 1 of each even-numbered year. RCW 28A.150.550 directs that the SBE, with assistance from the other agencies, report on the status of each indicator and provide an evaluation of how Washington student performance compares nationally and to peer states. The report must recommend evidence-based reforms intended to improve student achievement in the area of any indicator if the system is not on target to meet the performance goals for that indicator, or if Washington students are falling behind students in peer states, or if Washington is not within the top 10 percent nationally. The specified indicators are: (1) Kindergarten Readiness, as measured on the WaKIDS assessment; (2) Fourth Grade Reading Proficiency; (3) Eighth Grade Math Proficiency; (4) Four-year Graduation Rate; (5) Postsecondary Education and Workforce Attainment, as measured by enrollment and employment rates; and (6) Quality of the High School Diploma, as measured by postsecondary remediation enrollment. The following are appended: (1) Status of Indicators; (2) Peer Agency Feedback; and (3) Peer Agency Alignment with Recommended Reforms.
