As you are aware, the MDE recently identified schools for Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) or Additional Targeted Support and Improvement (ATSI) as required by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). These specific identifications are based on the performance of one or more subgroups from any public school in the state. Since the release of the identifications, many of you have requested subgroup data used in the identification process.
In response to the requests and to ensure that you have this information as you move forward with your planning for addressing subgroup issues, we have placed data files in SharePoint, along with a PowerPoint presentation that outlines the contents of the data files.
Superintendents can access files at https://districtaccess.mde.k12.ms.us/districts/documents. To find the files, click on your district folder à ORS folder àAccountability 2018.
Should you have any additional questions, please contact Dr. Sonja Robertson in the Office of School Improvement at 601-359-1003 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
