Results from the Parent Homework Survey

Riverview Elementary has stopped giving students homework and is asking parents and/or guardians to engage their children in 20-30 minutes a night of reading to support student's academic development. We are referring to this as Home Learning. Earlier this Fall, parents were provided with a link to take a survey about our homework policy. The following document shows the results from the Fall 2016 Riverview Homework Survey. If you are a Riverview Elementary parent, and you have more questions about this subject, please contact the school at 247-3862.

State Assessments

When looking at the performance of Riverview students against standards (did a student demonstrate academic skill that meets state standards) there are a number of areas to celebrate. Overall, we saw an increase in the number of students who are meeting or exceeding standards from 2014-15 to 2015-16. Riverview continues to perform above both state and local averages. For example, in math, our 3rd grade scores rose from 45% to 46% (holding steady); however, in that 46%, we saw our ‘Exceeds’ percentage rise from 5% to 11%, indicating effectiveness in supporting our advanced math learners. Our ‘Did Not Meet’ scores (lowest category) decrease from 20% to only 9%. This indicates improve effectiveness in supporting struggling math students. At grade 4, the meet/exceed percentages rose from 26% to 34%; 5th grade saw math meets/exceeds percentage rise from 36% to 54%. Keep in mind these are grade level comparisons, so not the same students. When we look at the same group of students from year to year, we see, for example, that last year’s 5th graders scored, in math, 26% meets/exceeds in 4th grade and 54% meets and exceeds in 5th. That is phenomenal improvement, more than doubling the number of students who meet the high standards. Riverview shows a similar trend in English Language Arts. In Science our 5th grade meets/ exceeds scores improved from 36% in 13-14, to 56% in 14-15, to 75% in 15-16. That is incredible improvement.
