Comprehensive Support and Improvement Summary

List of Schools Eligible for Comprehensive Support and Improvement

Pinedale and Clovis Community Day School Secondary are our two CSI schools.

How the District Supports Eligible Schools

School Plans for Student Achievement (SPSA) are utilized to meet the requirements for CSI plans.
School leaders and representatives from the central office contribute to the development, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of CSI plans. Needs assessments are conducted annually by the CSI schools with frequent follow up of needs throughout the school year. There are a variety of data points used by the school sites during this needs assessment process. Historical CAASPP results, which were used as a basis for determining eligibility for CSI, are also used during the needs assessment. The district provides Data Insights, a continuously updated report dashboard with prebuilt reports designed to be relevant and actionable, which is used by the sites on an ongoing basis to monitor multiple aspects of student data, including SBAC results, attendance, behavior, graduation rate, and college/career readiness. The district supports schools in using these high stakes data points to determine goals and next steps for improvement.

The district also provides local assessments that measure student growth throughout the year. For example, the district provides Math and Language Arts formative assessments called iCAM and iCAL to monitor student progress towards achieving the adopted standards. The Illuminate system provides a variety of reports allowing the school a rich variety of output of results to make the data actionable. The district values the input of a variety of stake holders when making decisions at the school site level. The district provides various surveys (Parent SART, Student LCAP, Faculty/Staff Climate Assessment, Senior Survey, Parent Title I) to gather feedback from a representation of groups served. The results of these surveys are used to keep a pulse of needs perceived by all stake holders. Survey data along with qualitative comments form the basis of in person conversations held at the school sites during parent SART, SSC, ELAC meetings as well as staff and district leadership meetings. It is at these meetings that needs assessments come to fruition.

Site leaders collaborate to identify appropriate interventions, actions, and strategies to support student achievement. The CSI Team assists in identifying appropriate evidence-based interventions. The CSI Team will utilize a SPSA Supplemental and Support Resources guide which includes a menu of options that can be selected based on the needs of the site. The menu includes central office supports that are researched based actions and/or strategies that are proven effective and appropriately scalable. Additionally, the CSI Team consults with the district administrative cabinet to deploy expertise and resources to best meet the needs of each site. Interventions and expenditures are implemented in alignment with greatest areas of need at each site as uncovered by the needs assessment and correlating data. The district created Data Insights was used to disaggregate data to determine area that may require follow up targeting. These targets help form the basis of resource inequities. Data from multiple district created surveys was used to gather stakeholder feedback from staff, students, and parent/guardians to identify perceived inequities. This along with follow up in person meetings was used to dig deeper into the root cause of those inequities. A review of budgets and how resources are targeted was used to verify funds are directed towards addressing any inequity.

How the District will Monitor and Evaluate the Plans

The CSI team works directly with sites to ensure monitoring and evaluation of the School Plans for Student Achievement (SPSA). Implementation monitoring and the evaluation of effectiveness occurs in 6-8 week cycles utilizing a 6-8 week plan to document goals, expected outcomes and actions with correlated metrics to support measuring action effectiveness. Site leaders monitor of actions and progress.

Upon completion of the 6-8 week cycle, plans are reviewed and evaluated by site and district leaders. Plans are evaluated by examining the level of action effectiveness in alignment with the correlating site metrics which are differentiated in SPSAs based on the site needs assessment. Based on the results, site leaders begin the next 6-8 week cycle, determining areas of focus as pertained to the site plan. Site and district leaders conduct weekly monitoring of actions and progress. Coaching is provided in areas of need, including but not limited to, additional data monitoring and action implantation assistance. District leadership provides support with monitoring to ensure sites have the data and resources needed to implement actions. For monitoring of graduation rate schools can track student performance with regards to college/career readiness using Data Insights and can track individual student credit completion. For monitoring of student academic performance the district provides multiple assessments with actionable reports viewed by teachers, site and district leadership to monitor student growth. In addition to these things the district considers suspension/expulsion data, attendance, behavioral, parent climate and LCAP survey data in addition to California Dashboard data. Clovis Unified will analyze the data to ensure all underperforming groups are making adequate progress and are closing the achievement gaps. These data points are presented at SART, SSC and ELAC meetings to different parent groups. Parents are an integral component in monitoring progress and evaluating effectiveness.

The LEA will review CA School Dashboard, the district created Data Insights for Pinedale Elementary, Gateway High School (Continuation) and Clovis Community Day School Secondary to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the CSI plan to support student and school improvement. The CUSD Data Insight visualizations will be utilized for ongoing and frequent monitoring of the CSI plan. Data visualizations have been created to monitor student group performance on: CAASPP, suspensions, chronic absenteeism and the College and Career Indicator. Policies and practices may be modified to improve student outcomes in schools meeting the criteria for CSI.
