Assessment Results and Goals
An important time of year for our school is October and November. We have analyzed KPrep Data and other assessment data from classrooms and MAP. Taking all of these together, the leadership team of teachers, counselors and administrators set specific goals to tackle in the following year. At OCMS, much of this is continuing the great work we have established while keeping an eye on each student to ensure they are growing.
We have 4 goals that will guide our work next year. We want students to:
1. Increase their proficiency in reading and math through strong teaching strategies and ensuring our school is a safe and supportive environment for students to learn in.
2. Narrow the gap between how well students without disabilities do in comparison to students with disabilities
3. Ensure students are growing on the MAP assessments in both reading and math
4. Support students to become better writers- both in fictional writing and non-fiction.
These four goals, along with specific strategies and action steps can be found on our Continuous School Improvement Plan. Here is the link if you would like to take a look: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1E_tcOGzX7ipu2TVHUMD3UndCtiIqhZoBL5nVstGWktg/edit?usp=sharing
We encourage you to ask your child as well as teachers about our work on these four goals as we wrap up this year and head into next year.
Our staff worked together with the students to complete an amazing thanksfullness challenge through our PRIDE classes. Joining in the fun were some of the teachers that shared personal stories, videos, talents and even some daring dancing. Take a look at the many videos on our OCMS Instagram site at the following Link:

I had a dozen chrysalis in all manner of morphs at any one time. In this image you can see the new green chrysalis coloration, one that’s about ready to emerge (the clear one), and a butterfly that’s already come out. They will hang for hours and dry their wings and are, in fact, quite fragile."
