Dear Parents/Guardians,

 Pursuant to the Education Accountability Act of 2009, all public schools in Colorado are required to develop unified improvement plans that outline targets for performance outcomes and strategies that the school will implement to achieve academic improvement. Schools may be required to implement a performance plan, improvement plan, priority improvement plan, or turnaround plan. Based on results from the Colorado School Performance Framework, Shadow Ridge Middle School will be required to develop an Improvement Plan during the 2015-16 school year.

 The school was assigned to this plan type based on performance not meeting state expectations in the area(s) of Academic Achievement, Academic Growth, and Academic Growth Gaps.

The district is required to submit Shadow Ridge’s unified improvement plan to the Colorado Department of Education on or before April 15, 2016. To meet that deadline, the plan will be developed according to the following timeline:

Prior to adopting a plan, the Shadow Ridge Middle School will hold a public hearing on November 17th at 5:30 pm in the library at Shadow Ridge Middle School.
