Eric.ed.gov – Project LIFT: Year Two Report

eric.ed.gov har udgivet:

Research for Action (RFA) has completed its second year of a five-year external evaluation of the Project Leadership and Investment for Transformation (LIFT) Initiative in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District (CMS). Project LIFT is a public-private partnership between CMS and the local philanthropic and business communities in Charlotte, designed to turn around nine schools in the West Charlotte Corridor. Starting in the 2012-13 school year, Project LIFT operates as a semi-autonomous Learning Community within CMS, providing the initiative with CMS infrastructural support and access to an initial $55 Million investment of private resources to drive a multifaceted reform effort in Charlotte’s highest poverty schools. Project LIFT’s long-term goals are to significantly improve student achievement in the following ways: 1) 90% of students will achieve proficiency in math and English across the Learning Community; 2) 90% of students will meet annual growth goals in math and English; and, 3) 90% of West Charlotte High School (WCHS) students will graduate on time. This Year Two Report provides a comprehensive analysis of the second year of the initiative, incorporating key highlights of Year Two implementation with a presentation of student behavioral and academic achievement outcomes for the 2013-14 school year. The following are appended: (1) 2013-14 Qualitative Data Sources; (2) Key Project LIFT Partners for 2013-14, by Focus Area; (3) End of Course (EOC) and End of Grade (EOG) Performance: 2011-12 to 2013-14; (4) End of Year Enrollment, Mobility, Attendance, Suspensions, and Early Warning Indicators of Dropout for LIFT Students; and (5) Methodology: Comparison School Selection, Predictive Modeling Methods, and Results.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
