KPBSD’s Comprehensive System of Assessment aligns well with State and Federal requirements

The path below goes to the district’s shared drive and contains 38 slides that attempt to explain the System of Assessment used within KPBSD. Many of the assessments identified are either state or federal requirements. All slides except #36 have an audio component that provides additional information.

Federal Programs Organizational Chart

Fed Programs Flow Chart is being provided as an awareness of the “who does what” for Federal Programs, and to visualize the overlap that occurs. This team can provide support, or direct you to the correct support, for any of the activities listed on the page.

The mission of the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Federal Programs Department is to provide quality, timely, and collaborative academic support to enhance the success of targeted students, schools and parents in an ethical manner and in compliance with KPBSD policies, federal regulations and state statutes.

Dollar figures are provided for the Federal funding sources. This should reinforce the importance of school staff efforts to have students/parents complete paperwork. The funds listed are generated through the completion of qualifying forms of students and families. These are federal dollars available to supplement district efforts to support qualifying students because a couple of forms were completed.

Funds are allocated to schools through prioritizing academic need according to specifics of the individual funding sources. KPBSD Federal funds are used in a variety of ways and a few are:

  •  10—Pre-K programs
  • Supplemental Teachers, Interventionists, & Tutors
  • Intervention Supplies and Materials
  • Professional Development
  • Family/Parent Involvement Activities
  • Extended School (before or after school tutoring)
  • Incorporating Native Culture and Language
  • Provide Native Youth Leadership opportunities
  • Support of Homeless students
  • Supports of incarcerated students
  • Support of Migrant students
  • Support of students who’s primary language is not English

Please help us maximize the Federal dollars the KPBSD receives. For more information, visit the district’s webpage

Federal Programs and Assessment 8/5/14

Welcome back everyone,

Please (make sure you) review the attachments and ask questions.

Welcome back and make it a great 2014-15 attachment provides lots of the recurring information from year to year mainly concerning principals. Pay special attention to item 12.

Test Coordinator–site attachment is the information to put out to certified staff to take on the test coordinator duties for your school. I remind you that the test is moving to an online format and therefore having someone with computer skills is highly recommended.

Assessment Matrix 2014-2015 attachment is revised today to include changes. The state currently has out for public comment until Aug 15 a refinement to the new graduation requirement. I believe it will be approved. First off, you should be aware the HSGQE was repealed and replaced with the requirement for student to “take” either the Workeys or ACT or SAT. What I believe will be passed is the requirement that 11th grade students will choose one of the tests between Aug and Sept and register for it. Workeys will be administered Nov 10- Feb 13 online. ACT will be administered March 3rd in the school and SAT will be administered Feb 25th in the school. All materials for these administrations will be sent directly to the school. This is a HUGE change to plan for. Schools may be allowed to jointly test for ACT and SAT. We’ll have to wait and see what the details identify.

I know this hits on all the “big” things and will keep you updated as the team gets updates from the state Department of Ed.
