School board will study accountability reports


— A celebration of the success of local schools stemming from the recent release of this year's School Accountability Reports is among the topics scheduled for tonight's Steamboat Springs School District board meeting.

The meeting begins with an executive session at 5:30 p.m. at the George P. Sauer Human Services Center on Seventh Street.

The meeting is open to the public at 7 p.m.

The accountability reports, which were released to the public Dec. 5, rank state schools based on student performance on the annual Colorado Student Assessment Program test, or CSAP.

ACT exam scores were figured into high school accountability reports for the first time this year.

Strawberry Park Elementary School was one of only 143 schools statewide rated "excellent," the state's top rating. Soda Creek Elementary School, Steamboat Springs Middle School and Steamboat Springs High School all were rated "high."

The school accountability committees for SSHS and SSMS will set their school's goals for next year's accountability reports at tonight's meeting.

Also on the agenda, the school board will present its priorities for Education Fund Board projects. The EFB already presented the board with its list of recommended projects, which will be funded by the district's half-cent sales tax revenue.

The EFB must have its budget priorities for the next fiscal school year completed by March 26.
