The 2013-14 school year was the second implementation year of North Carolina’s READY initiative, which includes a new Standard Course of Study in all subjects and grade levels, new student assessments aligned to the revised Standard Course of Study and a new school accountability model. Over the next few months the NCDPI will release a variety of performance data to provide parents, teachers, school and district leaders and others comprehensive information on how well schools are preparing students for the next grade level, course and ultimately college and a career.
The below timeline outlines what information will be released and when:
- June 30, 2014: Local school systems submitted accountability data to the NCDPI.
- July-August 2014: NCDPI engages in data check for local districts.
- September 4, 2014: End-of-Grade proficiency, End-of-Course proficiency, high school indicators (including results from The ACT, The ACT WorkKeys, the number of students completing high-level math courses and high school graduation rates) and academic growth data will be presented at the State Board of Education meeting.
- October 2, 2014: Read to Achieve results will be presented at the State Board of Education meeting.
