Conferences are a good way to communicate with you about your child’s progress. It is also a special time for you to discuss with the teacher any questions or concerns you may have. Please have your specific questions ready in advance so the time will be as beneficial as possible for you.

Yale Tops in District in Math Growth!
Recently the CDE released growth scores for students in Math and Reading and we have a huge celebration to share with you. Yale has the highest growth scores in Math in APS and is in the top 10 in English Language Arts! The state average for growth is always the 50th percentile. Yale was in the 78th percentile in Math and 64th percentile in English Language Arts. This is great news and is a direct result of the hard work from our teachers, students and parents in supporting our kids. While we have much work to do and continue to get better in meeting the needs of all our kids, this is one thing we should celebrate and be proud of. Thank you for your continued support!
What are growth scores? Growth scores provide a picture of how students are progressing and how fast compared to their peers, not taking into account where they are proficiency-wise. In 2009, Colorado began using the growth measure, which relies on results from the state’s English and math standardized tests, to supplement basic achievement data. A student’s growth percentile, which ranges from 1 to 99, indicates how that student’s performance changed over time, relative to students with similar performances on state assessments. School and district growth rates, which make up the greatest share in their quality ratings, are determined by the median growth score from all students in that school or district.
