The Jersey City Global Charter School will prepare an Individualized Learning Plan for ALL students and will measure each student’s annual learning gains. While The Jersey City Global Charter School students will take year end proficiency tests consistent with all other Jersey City public schools, we also test our children using an NCR test at both the beginning and end of the school year to determine the amount each student learns from the beginning of the year to the end. Traditional end of year proficiency testing typically fails to take into account where the student started the year and thus can’t determine the degree of “value added” by the school for each student during the year.
100% of students will have personalized learning plans which identify academic weaknesses and strengths completed and updated yearly. Students, teachers, and parents will be actively engaged in the planning of an individualized personal learning plan.
