REFLECTIONS ON THE 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR

Despite being faced with multiple physical and mental challenges resulting from summer 2016, I was able to make it through the 2016-17 school year, have a record year and win the two top ag teacher awards for the state. I am grateful for a supportive administration that made this possible.

SLO - Student Learning Objective 2016-17

12th Grade Saline students (multi-year) will show progress toward earning their State FFA Degree and the six articulated general university credits to Michigan State University by December 31, 2016. GOAL is to increase the percentage of seniors earning the State FFA Degree and MSU college credit.

SELF REFLECTIONS ON GROWTH:

The strategy of monthly monitoring student progress using the Ag Experience Tracker to see what area each senior is missing toward their State Degree and projecting it up on the screen was effective. It gave the students an opportunity to do monthly goal setting and preventative maintenance to fulfill the requirements for the 6 MSU Credits by the December 31 cut off. This was key to achieving 100% with Saline students. The same strategy was incorporated with the Juniors working on their state Outstanding Junior Award which is the prelude to the State Degree and 6 MSU Credits. I will continue to use this strategy on a monthly basis to improve results.

GROWTH TARGETS

September 2016 - 35% Qualified - Actual 50%

October 2016 - 45% Qualified - Actual 60%

November 2016 - 55% Qualified - Actual 70%

December 2016 - 65% Qualified - Actual 80%

January 8th - 75% or more Qualified - Actual 92.3% SWWC, 100% Saline Only.

ACTUAL RESULTS AS OF JANUARY 8, 2017

12 of the 13 completer (including SWWC) Seniors earned their State FFA Degree & MSU 6 Articulated General University Credits at MSU

Final Percentage: 92.3%

Goal: 75%

+ or - Goal: Exceeded S.L.O. Goal by: 17.3%+

The 13th Senior was a SWWC (non-Saline) return Senior that lacked the hours for hands on experience and did not participate in at least 5 FFA activities above local level because of lack of effort.

Of the 11 SALINE Senior Completers of both Botany & Zoology:

- 100% Earned the State Degree & 6 MSU College Credits

- Exceeding S.L.O. Goal by 25%
