Roadmap to Success

There are six core outcome areas, points of trackable acheivement,that Spartanburg Academic Movement seeks to improve.  They represent the critically important “learning stages” in the lives of our young people; stages by which academic success must be achieved, or the consequences will be negative and life-altering.

These six “learning stages” have been identified as the most robust indicators of the status of academic achievement in Spartanburg County.   

The Data Team has established three-year rolling targets for most of these stages, leading toward achievement of the “40/30 Challenge,” the ultimate target metric of SAM. 

The SIX Learning Stages

  • Kindergarten Success 
  • Early Grades Reading
  • Middle Grades Math
  • College/Career Ready High School Graduation
