Clip to ScrapBook #3

In my state, I select the group of students, student growth goal and timeline to meet the goal. I typically set a very ambitious goal with whichever group of my students is highest need and push the goal date out to the end of the school year.
This year my goal was written re: my group of 5 first graders, whose fall phonics/PA assessments were at early K level. Goal is based on end of 1st grade benchmarks on the same measures. We did winter benchmarking this week and 3/5 kids are already at the goal while the other 2 are now meeting winter benchmark goals. Which is awesome, except that all but one of the kids will almost definitely be exiting my group.
Itís the first time weíve met the goal SO early. My P says to continue tracking the same kids through to the end of the goal target date. That is what I would have thought I should do. Assistant P, who is my formal evaluator this year, says I either need to keep the kids even though they arenít highest need, or write a new goal.
Iím not really sure what will happen. Iím in a title wide school but am partially funded by our state program for at risk learners, so technically I could keep the kids but it doesnít seem right when there are 15-20 other kids who are now testing below benchmark.

Sorry this isnít an amazing answer. You arenít alone!
Our union has been working with admin to figure out the evaluation system for interventionists (including SPED, ESL, and math and reading teachers) and itís still a work in progress, clearly.
