Dear Parents and Community Members:
We are pleased to present you with the Annual Education Report (AER) which provides key information on the 2016-17 educational progress for the Junior-Senior High School. The AER addresses the complex reporting information required by federal and state laws. The school’s report contains information about student assessment, accountability, and teacher quality. If you have any questions about the AER, please contact Steven Netzley, principal, for assistance.
The AER is available for you to review electronically by visiting the 2016-17 Ithaca Jr./Sr. High School Combined Report, or you may review a copy in the main office at your child’s school.
For the 2016-17 school year, schools were identified using new definitions and labels as required in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). A Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) school is one that has at least one underperforming student subgroup. An Additional Targeted Support (ATS) school is one that has three or more underperforming student subgroups. A Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) school is one whose performance is in the lowest 5% of all schools in the state. Some schools are not identified with any of these labels. In these cases, no label is given.
Our school has not been given any of these labels.
Ithaca Junior-Senior High School’s school improvement process is focused on making all students career and college ready in the areas of mathematics, science, and social studies. These goals are tied directly to the data in the combined report.
Steven Netzley, Principal
