The WSAS assessments will be used to monitor District performance goals as defined by the State Accountability Index measures and Annual Measurable Objectives in reading proficiency, math proficiency and graduation rates as well as a comparison of student performance with local, state and national norms and proficiency standards. The District will review the WSAS data annually and local data collected on an ongoing basis to make adjustments for continual improvement to meet the needs of the youth that we serve.
