The SOLs are one measure of achievement and instruction in a school. There are many other measures, which may tell a more complete story.
Site Based Survey
This survey is completed every two years by students, parents and staff at each school. Campbell staf reports a high degree of job satisfaction. Students report strong relationships with staff. Cultural competence is a strength for Campbell as well. You can see the data online at :
In 2011, Campbell participated in a study with UVA. The CLASS observation tool was used to measure a variety of instructional features in classrooms (student engagement, concept development, instructional support, etc.) Campbell was on par with other APS elementary schools, and exceeded the average score in concept development.
PALS is a reading screening that measures letter/sound correspondence, rhyming, high frequency word recognition, and reading comprehension in higher grades. In 2015, 98% of Campbell K students met the benchmark for spring PALS. 94% of 1st graders passed PALS and 85% of second graders passed PALS. These scores are comparable with other APS schools.
Implementation Review (EL)
Each year, Campbell staff responds to a self-assessment survey to measure our progress in implementing EL core practices. As we embrace more components of EL such as Student Led Conferences and the Reader's Workshop model, our scores on the EL Implementation Review increase.
