Now more than ever, it is important for schools to be transparent to its stakeholders. The world is in an unprecedented pandemic, and much has changed in our schools and education in general due to COVID-19.
Transparency to the Public
North Dakota is committed to informing communities about how well its schools are doing. North Dakota’s future success depends on tapping into the potential of all students, so they graduate choice ready with the knowledge, skills, and disposition to be successful.
State education departments are required to annually create an accountability report for every public school in the state. The School Accountability Report outlines how schools are performing on the accountability elements North Dakota selected within its ESSA plan.
North Dakota has a public dashboard designed to help communities across the state access important data regarding K-12 districts and schools, including COVID-19 Response. Insights features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English Learner progress, student engagement results, and state accountability. To find out information about our school, visit the Dashboard at Insights.nd.gov, select “Find My School”, and search alphabetically.
Please note, data made available to the public masks or hides data for groups with less than 10 students to protect confidential information about individual students and will say “no data available”.
We have robust plans for working to continuously improve educational programs at our school. We would like you and your child(ren) to continue to be active participants in our educational system. Please help support our high expectations for student achievement by participating in school initiatives, offering input and support in our endeavors to raise student achievement, and volunteering at school. Meeting our school’s goals will take a united effort, and we look forward to working with families to ensure success for each student.
All schools engage in continuous improvement for general support; therefore, our school has completed a continuous improvement plan.
As part of the overall school improvement plan, a strategy map is generated for each school. Our strategy map, outlining our key school improvement initiatives, is also available on the Insights Dashboard.
Fessenden-Bowdon School is a participating Title I school, with a student membership count of 179.
