Overview

 

General Information (General school information and demographics)

North Whiteville Academy is an alternative school for grades 6-12.  The program is designed to serve students whose needs cannot be met in the regular school environment.  Placement and duration at the alternative school is determined by a committee consisting of the superintendent, home school administrator and the alternative school administrator.  The objective is to return the students to the regular school setting as soon as their behavior or credits allow them to function successfully. 

3 Types of Referrals: Chronic Discipline Issues, Pending Charges, Credit Recovery. 

Currently, NWA has thirty four students enrolled for credit recovery, two students with pending charges and three students with chronic discipline issues.

Section 5: School Priority Areas and Goals

Step 1:  Priority Areas

Priority Areas: Based upon the analysis conducted, what 4 or 5 priorities emerge for the school? Cite relevant evidence from your analysis to support these priorities.

1. Strengthen instructional programs to ensure rigor, alignment with home school, research-based instruction, and contain state academic content standards. 

 

2. Establish a social environment that improves school safety and discipline and addresses other non-academic factors that impact student achievement, such as students’ social, emotional and health needs.

 

3.  Prior to 2013, parental and community involvement rates were less than 5%.   NWA will provide ongoing opportunities for student, family and community engagement.

 

4. Based on data analysis, all subgroups have not obtained College and Career ready proficiencies on EOC/EOG courses.  Therefore, NWA will increase the number of students obtaining proficiency rates in EOC/EOG courses and/or academic growth based on EVAAS data.
