You are looking for the list of the ISS School Acronym list with description, here I am giving:

Until the end of the 2011-12 school year, the ABCs of Public Education was North Carolina’s comprehensive plan to improve public schools. Implemented in the 1996-97 school year, the model focused on schools meeting growth expectations for student achievement as well as on the overall percentage of students who scored at or above grade level. Schools received recognition based on student growth and the percentage of students’ scores at or above grade level.

Accountability and Curriculum Revision Effort. This describes all of the work performed by the NCDPI to implement the recommendations contained in the State Board of Education’s “Framework for Change: The Next Generation of Assessments and Accountability” document. This document describes a new vision of the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, student testing, and district and school accountability.


American College Test. An assessment taken by students as a precursor to college/university admission.

Average Daily Membership. The number of days a student is in membership at a school divided by the number of days in a school month or school year.

Annual Measurable Objectives. AMO are proficiency targets set by student subgroup at the state level with the goal to reduce by half the percentage of students considered non-proficient in reading and mathematics within six years.

Advanced Placement. A program that enables high school students to complete college-level courses for college placement and/or credit.

Adequate Yearly Progress. A former measure under No Child Left Behind used by the state to gauge yearly progress of student subgroups toward meeting 100 proficiency in reading and mathematics. North Carolina received a waiver from the US Department of Education in 2012 to use AMO to gauge student progress toward meeting proficiency goals in reading and mathematics.

Comprehensive Exceptional Children Accountability System. A secure web-based student information system for exceptional children that supports online case management, compliance monitoring, data analysis, and federal and state reporting requirements.

[NC] Common Education Data Analysis & Reporting System. CEDARS is North Carolina’s PreK-13 State Longitudinal Data System. Once fully in place (July 2011), CEDARS will enable state, local and federal policymakers and service providers to make data-driven decisions based on analysis of trends and relationships between various educational factors and student performance over time.

Career and Technical Education. CTE provides high school students the opportunity to take courses in eight program areas so that they can explore interests and careers while building and strengthening their career-specific knowledge and skills. The eight education program areas are: Agricultural; Business, Finance and Information Technology; Career Development; Family and Consumer Sciences; Health Science; Marketing and Entrepreneurship; Technology Engineering and Design; and Trade and Industrial.

Educational Directory & Demographical Information Exchange. EDDIE is the authoritative source for North Carolina public school information including LEA numbers, school numbers, administrative contacts, school types, grade levels, calendar types, program types and addresses. Information contained in EDDIE is populated by local districts and feeds multiple NCDPI systems including Accountability, NC WISE, and NC School Report Cards, and is used to meet federal reporting requirements. EDDIE replaced the School, Name and Address (SNA) file in April 2010.

English Language Learner. Student whose first language is one other than English and who needs language assistance to participate fully in the regular curriculum

End-of-Course tests designed to access the competencies defined by the Standard Course of Study for three mandated courses: Algebra I/Integrated I, English II and Biology. Tests are taken during the last two weeks of school for students on a traditional calendar and the last week of the course for students on a block schedule.

End-of-Grade tests in reading and mathematics (grades 3-8) and science (grades 5 and 8) that are taken by students during the last three weeks of the school year.

Elementary and Secondary Education Act. This is the principal federal law affecting K-12 education. When the ESEA of 1965 was reauthorized and amended in 2002, it was renamed the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. In 2009, the program was again referenced as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.

English as a Second Language. A program model that delivers specialized instruction to students who are learning English as a new language

Education Value Added Assessment System. SAS® EVAAS™ for K-12 is a customized software system available to all NC school districts that provides diagnostic reports quickly to district and school staff. EVAAS tools provide a precise measurement of student progress over time and a reliable diagnosis of opportunities for growth that help to identify which students are at risk for under-achievement. By viewing easy-to-understand charts and graphs accessed via the Web, users can produce reports that predict student success, show the effects of instruction at particular schools, or reveal patterns in subgroup performance.

Free and Reduced Priced Lunch. Children qualify, based upon parent or guardian financial status, to receive either free or reduced priced lunch through a federal governmental program.

Governor’s Education Transformation Commission. The GETC was established in September 2010 to provide oversight and consultation on the use of state Race to the Top funds.

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. This federal law, reauthorized in 2004, is designed to ensure that all children with disabilities have available to them a free and appropriate public education that emphasizes special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment and independent living.

Individualized Education Program. The IEP is a written statement for a student with a disability that is developed, at least annually, by a team of professionals knowledgeable about the student and the parent. The plan describes the strengths of the child and the concerns of the parents for enhancing the education of their child, and when, where, and how often services will be provided. The IEP is required by federal law for all exceptional children and must include specific information about how the student will be served and what goals he or she should be meeting.

IDEA Proficiency Test. Test used to determine the appropriate assessment for limited English proficient students.

Instructional Improvement System. The IIS provides portals for students, teachers, parents, and school and district administrators to access data and resources to inform decision-making related to instruction, assessment and students’ career and college goals.

Local Education Agency. Synonymous with a local school system or a local school district, indicating that a public board of education or other public authority maintains administrative control of the public schools in a city or county.

Limited English Proficient. Students whose first language is one other than English who need language assistance to participate fully in the regular curriculum and the statewide assessment system.

Measures of Student Learning. MSLs, more often referred to as Common Exams, are assessments district administrators will use to measure student academic growth in subjects not currently assessed with state end-of-grade assessments, end-of-course assessments, or Career and Technical Education post assessments. The assessments’ results will not be used for school accountability purposes but instead as one component of teacher evaluations.

National Assessment of Educational Progress. Also known as the “Nation’s Report Card,” NAEP assesses the educational achievement of elementary and secondary students in various subject areas. It provides data for comparing the performance of students in North Carolina to that of their peers nationwide.

North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. The NCDPI administers the policies adopted by the State Board of Education and offers instructional, financial, technological and personnel support to all public school systems in the state.

North Carolina Window of Information for Student Education. This secure web-based tool provides educators with direct and immediate access to a full spectrum of data on a student’s entire career in the North Carolina public school system.

The North Carolina Checklist of Academic Standards is an alternate assessment designed to measure grade-level competencies of students identified as limited English proficient and some students with disabilities.

The North Carolina Educator Evaluation System. A system used to evaluate the performance of all teachers, principals, assistant principals, instructional central office administrators and superintendents in order to promote effective leadership, quality teaching and student learning while enhancing professional practice that leads to improved instruction.

The North Carolina EXTEND1 is an alternate assessment designed to measure the performance of students with significant cognitive disabilities using alternate achievement standards.
