At Barona Indian Charter School, accountability means we are responsible for student learning. To be truly responsible, as educators, we utilize timely and easily administered assessments and informative reports. These assessments are aligned with California State Content Standards and provide prescriptive data that allows Barona Indian Charter School to efficiently plan and implement instruction. Using the web-based North West Evaluation Association (www.nwea.org) Measures of Academic Performance (MAP), we systematically monitor and adjust student grouping and instructional practices. Through this approach, we are able to maintain our academic focus of continuous learning; continuous progress.
In our first year of MAP implementation, Barona Indian Charter School improved its Academic Performance Index by 44 points. We are confident that Barona Indian Charter School will continue to improve student performance with the use of the MAP system.
Following on our improvements, the students of Barona Indian Charter School have made additional improvement. We will continue to work with the MAP system as a means of further individualizing instruction.
