Darleene Barrientos Last year, when state education officials determined that several Glendale public schools failed to reach state targets for student achievement, Glendale Unified officials were sure the state was mistaken. Last week, the state released a report that only two schools were not meeting standards. Last year, the state said six public schools were underperforming for the Adequate Yearly Progress standard. Clark Magnet, Crescenta Valley, Glendale and Hoover High schools received passing grades.

Gary Moskowitz Supt. Jim Brown is criticizing the California Department of Education for not telling educators to test 95% of its students on the California High School Exit Exam before it was too late. Brown, in a letter sent to state officials last week, said the district did not know that 95% of its students had to take the exit exam when it was administered in March. Brown's letter also asks that districts be given more than four days to test the requisite 95% of its students and that students who miss the exam are able to take a makeup test.

GLENDALE — Edison and Mann elementary schools will find out Tuesday which policies and regulations they will face if their programs do not yield better test results. Glendale Unified School District officials and school board members will discuss new policies that may affect the two schools if test results being released at the end of the month do not show improvement. Edison and Mann — two Title I schools, a federal designation given to schools with its students predominantly from low-income families — were marked as Program Improvement schools in 2006 after two consecutive years of not meeting academic benchmarks, said Joanna Junge, the district’s director of special projects and intercultural education.

GLENDALE — Student achievement improved in Glendale Unified, but two of the district's four main high schools did not hit their academic targets, according to standardized test data released Monday. Hoover and Glendale high schools, as well as Toll Middle School, join Roosevelt Middle School as campuses in "Program Improvement," a federal designation for schools that do not meet federal benchmarks in consecutive years. Because Hoover's English language learners missed their target on the English language arts exams, the school is pegged as being in program improvement, despite a 10-point growth on the state accountability exam.

GLENDALE — A streamlined school evaluation process and a broader emphasis on college counseling were among a set of recommended changes to the educational system released Monday by California’s legislative analyst’s office. The recommendations, which were part of a biannual report presented to the Legislature, could not only increase efficiency at the state level, but will also improve the student experience, officials said. One major proposal involves reconciling what many officials have found to be a confusing school evaluation process, that often leaves them straining to meet separate state and federal assessments, said Jennifer Kuhn, director of kindergarten-through-12th-grade education at the analyst’s office.
