    We demonstrated cohort data growth in our SBA assessment data and goals and continue to set high and reasonable targets, built on cohort data from the previous year.  Our whole school goal focused on SBA measurements as the assessment impacts students in grades 3-5 serves as a summative measurement to compare results.
