School Planning and Reporting

An article on (and titled) ‘School Planning and Reporting’ was in a recent gazette and it speaks quite concisely to what’s happening… some quotes:

“Annual reporting 2012

The annual report is a key reporting document and an important part of the planning and reporting cycle for schools and kura. It provides an opportunity for your board to reflect on how it is delivering on the needs of learners, particularly for the priority groups including Māori learners, Pasifika learners and learners with special education needs.  …
Reporting learner achievement
From 2012, under national administration guideline 2A (NAG 2A), schools and kura with learners in years 1-8 that use The New Zealand Curriculum to set their teaching and learning programmes are required to report student progress and achievement against National Standards.
Progress and achievement data needs to be reported for reading, writing and mathematics. The data must show numbers and proportions of students at, above, below or well below the standards, including by Māori, Pasifika and gender. All learners must be included in the school-level data, except where a learner’s privacy may be breached.
The reporting information needs to show progress and achievement of learners between at least two points in time, for example 2010 and 2011.”

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
