BOARD POLICY No. 2090
The board requires efficiency and effectiveness in all facets of its operations. In order to achieve this goal, the district shall provide:
A. a clear statement of expectations and/or standards for the district's instructional programs;
B. staff, resources and support to achieve the stated expectations and/or standards; and
C. a plan for evaluating instructional programs and services to determine how well expectations and/or standards are being met.
The district will utilize a variety of assessment processes to:
A. determine the effectiveness of the instructional programs;
B. assess the progress of individual students in attaining student learning goals or standards;
C. diagnose the needs of individual students who are not progressing at their expected rates; and
D. identify students who are in need of specialized programs.
Parents who wish to examine any assessment materials may do so by contacting the superintendent. Parent approval is necessary before administering a diagnostic personality test. Parents will be notified of their child's performance on any test or assessment conducted under the Washington State Assessment Program.
The superintendent or designee shall prepare an annual report that reflects the degree to which district goals and objectives related to the instructional program have been accomplished. The superintendent or designee will annually review the assessment processes and procedures to determine if the purposes of the program are being accomplished. Specifically, the district will adjust its curriculum if student performance under the Washington State Assessment Program indicates the district's students need assistance in identified areas.
