Agreements from the 2018-2019 Steering Committee

  1. There have been numerous ways to measure academic achievement in ELA and math, but there is only one metric that ties literacy and numeracy levels directly to occupations.
  2. The current accountability system tied to the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was created with the mindset that it would “measure” components of schools other than standardized assessments, but in South Carolina it still “feels” like other accountability models.
  3. The South Carolina Education Accountability Act of 1998, No Child Left Behind (NCLB), and ESSA all have impacted “behavior” in school systems.
  4. A local report card developed by local educators and other stakeholders should be developed with the idea/understanding that it will impact behavior (Terry Holiday).
