We were looking for our teachers to work with our students in smaller groups and to begin using online learning programs for individualized tracks. Our goal is to decrease novices in reading and math. We are looking at using multiple Blended Learning Models in the future (Possibly adding a Flex Model and Flipped Classrooms to the Station Rotations and Lab Rotations in the future).
Teachers buying in and allowing their students to use online reading and math programs to improve their learning. It was a risk that they had to give up some teaching time to allow their students to do this. Assessment results which showed a reduce in novice for both reading and math helped our teachers overcome it.
Keep working at it. I don't think you will ever arrive. You have to keep changing with the needs of your students. You will always have to be flexibility with your ideas and designs to meet every student's individual needs.

In 2010-2011 Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2014-2015, Kentucky used the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and mathematics, 4 and 7 in science, 5 and 8 in social studies, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 11 in writing, and 4, 6, and 10 in language mechanics. The K-PREP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky.
Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2014-2015, Kentucky administered the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. EOCs are tests given to public high school students when they complete a course to assess their knowledge of important course concepts. They are similar to a final exam, except that they are created and scored by an outside testing company, ensuring that the tests are both rigorous and aligned with state and national college readiness standards.
