    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    North Dakota has launched a dashboard called “Insights,” designed to help communities across the state access important information about K-12 districts and schools. Insights features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including:

    Student Achievement                     Choice Ready Results                            Performance Comparisons

    English Learner Progress               Graduation Rates                                   School and State Accountability Results

    School Improvement Information    Post-Secondary Education                     School Environment

    Transparency to the Public

    North Dakota is committed to informing communities about how well our schools are doing. North Dakota’s future success depends on tapping into the potential of all students, so they graduate choice ready with the knowledge, skills, and disposition to be successful.

    State education departments are required to annually create an accountability report for every public school in the state per the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The school accountability reports outline how schools perform on the accountability elements North Dakota selected within its ESSA plan.

    How is our School Doing?

    To find more information about our School Accountability Report, visit the dashboard at Insights.nd.gov, select “Find My School,” and search alphabetically. The school accountability report is posted under the Dashboard heading.

    Please note that the data made available to the public masks or hides data for groups with ten or fewer students to protect confidential information about individual students. Therefore, if data is unavailable to less than ten students, it will say “no data available.”

    • Seventy-seven percent of East Fairview students are proficient in the Statewide English assessment compared to forty-four percent overall in the State. 
    • Sixty-two percent of East Fairview students are proficient in the Statewide Math assessment compared to thirty-nine percent overall in the State. 
    • Eighty percent of East Fairview students are proficient in the Statewide Science assessment compared to forty-five percent overall in the State.

    Family Engagement

    We have strong plans for working to improve the educational programs at our school. We want you and your child(ren) to continue actively participating in our educational system. Please help support our high expectations for student achievement by participating in the school educational initiatives, offering input and support in our endeavors to raise student achievement, or volunteering at the school. Meeting our school’s goals will take a united effort, and I look forward to working with our families to ensure success for each student.

     Continuous Improvement

    All schools engage in continuous improvement for general support; therefore, our school has completed a continuous improvement plan through Cognia.

    As part of the overall school improvement plan, a strategy map is generated for each school. Our strategy map, outlining our key school improvement initiatives, is also available on Insights.

    East Fairview Elementary School is not a participating Title I school, with a student membership count of sixty-five.
