Cucamonga Middle School in Central School District recognized by California business community for high achievement

California Schools Selected for Prestigious Honor Roll issued by

The Campaign for Business & Education Excellence

Central School District announced today that Cucamonga Middle School has been selected by Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) as one of 1,851 public schools in California to receive the title of 2014 Honor Roll school.

Schools receiving this distinction from the California business community have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.  For High Schools, the Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness. The CBEE Honor Roll is comprised of two different awards, the “Star Schools” Award (1328 schools) and “Scholar Schools” Award (523 schools). 

CBEE Star Schools are those with significant populations of socio-economically disadvantaged students that have shown a significant increase in grade-level proficiency over time.  CBEE Scholar Schools are schools that are showing significant levels of academic achievement, but do not have a significant socio-economically disadvantaged student population.

The annual Honor Roll award is made possible with support from numerous businesses and organizations including State Farm, Macy’s, Wells Fargo, Southern California Auto Club, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the California Business Roundtable, and several private foundations.  Chevron Corporation provided specific support in the creation of the STEM Honor Roll.

“Many of our high performing schools are not getting the recognition they deserve.  These schools that succeed in reducing the achievement gap and preparing their students for college and careers should be celebrated,” said Lee Blitch, CBEE Chairman and past CEO, San Francisco Chamber of Commerce.  “There are schools all over California that are leaders in ensuring their students are getting the best quality of education. Those schools need to be recognized.”

The Honor Roll is a school recognition program that uses only academic achievement data showing improved academic growth over time and a closing of the achievement gap.

“The American education system has a secret. Many schools are doing well… the Honor Roll proves it. Students are achieving at higher levels than anyone admits and more students than ever are succeeding when given the opportunity.said Jim Lanich, CBEE president.  “All schools, no matter what zip code they are in, can achieve this kind of success and leadership from the business community is critical to ensuring successes for all students.”

The Honor Roll list grew from 261 schools when the program began in 2005 to the current 1851 for 2014.  The number of Honor Roll STAR (higher poverty, high achieving) schools increased from 74 in 2005 to 1328 in 2014.  

A full list of the Honor Roll schools and the STEM Honor Roll can be found at ca.edresults.org/HonorRoll or follow Jim Lanich, President and CEO at @JLanich or email us at outreach@cbee.org.

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

This year, teachers at Cucamonga Middle School are helping students learn and presenting course information in new ways. We are using challenging tasks that require students to provide reasoning, support arguments with evidence, and persevere in solving problems. These are the skills that colleges and employers say our students need to succeed.

The next step is measuring our progress by participating in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). These new statewide tests for students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 are an academic check-up in English language arts/literacy and mathematics. These tests have replaced our former tests to provide better information to help improve teaching practices and target learning. The test is different from past testing in many ways. Some highlights include:

  • Computer Based: Some questions are interactive, and a greater variety of supporting tools can be provided to eligible students, such as magnification of text, and text-to-speech read-aloud of questions.
  • Computer Adaptive: Students receive test questions that help pinpoint what they know and can do. A correct answer is followed by a more difficult question, and an incorrect answer is followed by an easier question. This provides a more precise estimate of student understanding.
  • Realistic Context for Tasks: Knowledge is assessed in context—for example, students are asked to select a word of the same meaning to replace a word in a paragraph, rather than to choose a synonym for a word standing alone. In addition, students will need to provide open-ended answers for some questions, rather than selecting from multiple options, and will be asked to write short essays that will need to be scored by hand.
  • No Time Limits: Students can take the time they need to do their best.

Test Results are not the only measure

When making critical decisions in our lives, we usually do not rely on only one set of information. For example, when buying a car, we consider the price of the car, whether we think the car is attractive, the reputation of the car company, advice from owners of similar cars, and a host of other indicators of the car’s quality. Similarly, when assessing what students know and can do, it is important to rely on more than one measure of students’ content knowledge and skills.

Scores for the annual statewide test will soon become available. We will use these scores as just one piece of information. Classroom projects, writing assignments, math exercises, and our own tests given throughout the year all contribute important information as we build a clear picture of how each student is progressing. As you assess your child’s progress, we recommend that you, too, consider the annual state test scores just one piece of information. Take a look at your child’s classroom accomplishments as well as the scores, and use this complete body of information when helping your child set goals for improvement.
