Project Name
SABLE: Standards and Assessment Based Learning for Excellence


Project SABLE will provide significant support for a team of one high school and two feeder junior high schools in Calexico Unified School District to move forward in its collaborative effort to enable all students to pass the California High School Exit Exam and assure that all students are prepared to exercise the option of a college education upon graduation. Seventy-two percent of the 3500 students served by Team 7-12 are English Language Learners (ELL). Using approaches indicated by research as most effective in addressing the needs of these students, Project SABLE will articulate with other initiatives at the three sites to provide the following:

  • Professional development on standards, assessment, HSEE and best instructional practices
  • Alignment and articulation of the curriculum, assessment, instruction, and interventions at the three schools with the state standards and the HSEE.
  • An implementation program that involves peer coaching to support teachers.
  • Continued development of student support programs during and outside of the regular school day.

Project activities will include the establishment of a comprehensive assessment program to thoroughly assess student needs and strengths relative to standards tested by the HSEE and the development of an individual 7-12 standards-based learning plan leading to success on the HSEE and readiness for college. Project SABLE funds will support lead teachers at each site, provide for articulated curriculum and assessment development, and support teacher training and coaching. San Diego State University-Imperial Valley Campus will serve as Project SABLES's post-secondary partner, providing staff development, curriculum training, and support in an action research project focusing on questions related to second language learners, standards-based curriculum and preparation for the HSEE.
