Equity Accountability Model

The Equity Accountability Model Students With Disabilities component recognizes the work schools do on behalf of diploma-bound students receiving special education services because of a disability. This component is similar to the academic achievement component in that it is measured using the Evidence of Learning Framework. With this component, percentages reported are for all students in a school, not just those in the readiness grade levels. At the elementary level it is kindergarten through grade 5, middle is grades 6 through 8, and high school is grades 9 through 12. Schools may receive an improvement bonus. The improvement bonus is applied to the assigned score. To obtain the assigned score with the improvement bonus, the percent of Students with Disabilities who met EOL in the current year is compared to the prior year percent. Schools with an increase between 20-40 percentage points between the two years receive a one-level assigned score bonus. Schools with an increase of more than 40 percentage points receive a two-level assigned score bonus. Like the academic achievement component, schools must strive for 90% of students to meet two out of three measures on the Evidence of Learning Framework.
