NJ Annual Report Card 2010-2011: How Did Baristaville Schools Score?

The State Department of Education has released the 2010-2011 annual report card. The Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) report reflects the testing scores from all children–including those in special education and ESL students (English as a Second Language.) Schools are tested from 3rd grade and up, so schools such as Nishuane in Montclair and Forest & Linden Avenue Schools in Glen Ridge are not on the report. AYP is a measurement defined by the United States federal No Child Left Behind Act that allows the U.S. Department of Education to determine how every public school and school district in the country is performing academically according to results on standardized tests.

The goal for schools is to meet all 40 of the Adequate Yearly Progress indicators.

Montclair Public Schools saw some improvement in its elementary and middle schools, but still did not meet AYP in six of its school, including MHS which is now in its “Year 4″ status for failing to meet AYP in four consecutive years. Superintendent Alvarez explains on the district’s website:

The good news is that Northeast, Watchung, Glenfield and Renaissance passed with flying colors, meeting all 40 of the AYP indicators. Bullock, Bradford, Edgemont, Hillside and Mt. Hebron were only just shy of meeting the requirements, as was Montclair High School. In light of these results, The Montclair Public Schools will continue to focus on providing appropriate support to teachers and students in order to improve learning outcomes.

On Monday’s BoE meeting, Dr. Lydia Furnari, Supervisor of Curriculum presented a report  titled, Achieving Our Goals: Academic Achievement Spring 2010. The presentation outlined the positive achievements and ways the district will improve in needed areas.

South Orange – Maplewood Superintendent Brain Osborne, presented the district’s scores at the October 18 BoE meeting, stating,  “We are raising the bar for all students while narrowing the gap between demographic groups. This is significant progress, and demonstrates that together we can move more students to grade level and at the same time move more students to advanced proficient levels.”

  1. I hear that all the elite colleges MHS grads have gotten into just kicked them out and/or rescinded future acceptances.

    And good luck trying to navigate the Montclair BOE website- terrible (it features a 7 line explanation of what an “Announcement” is. We. Are. Not. In. The. Best. Of. Hands…..)
