"At-risk" children are defined as those whose school readiness is jeopardized by any of, but not limited to, the following personal or family situation(s): Educational level of parent below high school graduation, poverty, limited English proficiency, significant developmental delays, instability or inadequate basic capacity within the home and/or family, poor health (physical, mental, emotional), and/or child abuse and neglect.

X

X

Developmental Screening

Family Literacy is not grade specific, but generally is most appropriate for parents of children at the primary and elementary school levels and below, and for secondary school students who are parents. Family Literacy program goals are to strengthen parent involvement in the learning process of preschool children ages birth through five years; promote school readiness of preschool children; offer parents special opportunities to improve their literacy skills and education, a chance to recover from dropping out of school; and identify potential developmental delays in preschool children by offering developmental screening.

X

Executive Summary of Needs Assessment

(Summary of Conclusions)

 

Use this section to summarize the needs of your school. 

 

The Technology Center is the only career and technology center in Orangeburg Consolidated School District 5. We serve a diverse group of students and provide challenging academic and technical experiences to increase job skills that are required for success in a global society.  Preparing students for the work force and/or post-secondary education is the focus of The Technology Center.  The Technology Center provides efficient and effective instruction to prepare students for the work force, the military and or college.  The Technology Center has been the recipient of numerous awards and accolades.  During the 2014-2015 school year, The Technology Center received an excellent rating on the schools state report card and state recognition for the remarkable services that are provided to the students.  We have made a tremendous impact in the district, community and state.  The Technology Center is located in the city of Orangeburg and provides services to the students from the district's three high schools, the city's private schools and to the students from Calhoun County Public Schools.  Transportation is provided to and from the center from Bethune-Bowman High School, North High School, Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School, Orangeburg Christian Academy and Calhoun County High School.  The Technology Center currently serves approximately 700 students per semester from the four high schools and one private school.  Approximately ninety percent of the students are African American, five percent are Caucasian, and five percent are Hispanic, Indian and/or Asian. 

 

The faculty and staff consist of thirty-six individuals, including highly qualified teachers, an effective custodian staff and an excellent support staff.  Ninety-six percent are African American.  The remaining four percent come from various ethnic backgrounds.  The leadership team that includes one director, two assistant directors, one behavior modification coach and one school-to-work coordinator.  Three special education teachers, one secretary/attendance clerk, one bookkeeper, eighteen teachers, four custodians, four bus drivers/teacher assistants, one campus monitor, and three special education teacher assistant are on faulty/staff at TTC.  Seven student organizations are also on campus, which includes Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Future Farmers of America (FFA), Skills USA, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), and Robotics.    

 

Additionally, within the last few years several personnel changes occurred at The Technology Center which includes the hiring of a new Project-Lead-the-Way teacher, two health science teachers, a bookkeeper, a teacher cadet/Nutrition teacher, and a new director who officially joined the team in September of 2015 and a new assistant director. 

 

The Technology Center is unique because the students are able to learn a skill, become certified in specific career areas and get an opportunity to become interns and complete internships and obtain the Work Keys Certification.  Students are also prepared to enter the workforce with state certifications, industry licensures, and business certifications, attend college and or join the military after completing any of the programs that are available at The Technology Center. 

 

The primary challenges that The Technology Center faces include finding certified instructors for our programs and continue to meet the needs of industry.  Also, another primary challenge we face is the scheduling conflicts with feeder schools and academic courses.

 

We believe that a comprehensive needs assessment is essential in order to provide our students the opportunity to succeed once they complete a course at The Technology Center. The needs assessment conducted by the Technology Center addressed the following areas: Student Achievement, Teacher/Administrator Quality, School Climate, and the Arts. We reviewed the school's report card, test results, and surveys from community members and parents. Programs presently implemented, and the success of each program, were also considered. The data collected then was used to determine performance goals and action plans.

 

The overall results from the teachers, parents, students, and community representatives indicated that all groups surveyed generally agreed that The Technology Center's activities are aligned with the school's mission and beliefs.

 

 

Teachers rated school expectations as the highest indicator of success, whereas parent/community involvement was ranked among the lowest. The students and parents agreed that the Technology Center has high expectations concerning behavior but indicated that improvement is needed in the area of interpersonal relationships and the value of school property. The community data also indicated a need for more communication and increase involvement by the parents and community. Based on the data, it is conclude that The Technology Center must continue to improve its efforts to involve the parents and the community in order to improve the school climate.

 

 

The NSSE Survey of Instructional and Organizational Effectiveness were completed by teachers. Part A: Indicators of Quality Instructional Systems indicated that all areas, Curriculum, Instructional Design, and Assessment are fully functioning and operational. Based on a composite score of 4.0, The Technology Center's average was 3.47. Based on the data, the lowest score in Curriculum involved evaluating and renewing curriculum.  The lowest score in Instructional Design the purpose of assessments, select appropriate methods of assessments, collect a comprehensive and representative sample of student achievement, and develop fair assessments and avoid bias and distortion were considered areas of improvement.

 

 

Part B: Indicators of Quality Organizational Systems include the areas of Educational Agenda, Leadership for School Improvement, Community-Building, and Culture of Continuous Improvement and Learning. Based on a 4.0 scale, The Technology Center reached a composite score 3.56, indicating all areas are fully functioning and operational. The Educational Agenda section was the strongest area with a 3.78. This score correlates with data to support a mutual perception by parents and students alike. All other areas exceed the standard operational level.  The survey of Goals for Student Learning indicated that, although our composite score of 2.83 is above average, skills in communication were noted as needing the most improvement. Based on the data, it has been determined that overall communication and involvement with parents and the community must be improved in order to meet the needs of the stakeholders.

 

The previous school renewal plan was reviewed for meeting goals. The school report card data was also considered in evaluating the overall instructional and organizational effectiveness of The Technology Center. While achieving excellent ratings and meeting the standards, The Technology Center's indicators of success as well as the plans for improvement are outline in the school renewal plan.  We are encouraged as we finalize our performance goals and action plans, this tool will provide the road map necessary for increasing student achievement.
