Economically disadvantaged, African American, and Hispanic students closed gaps against their peers, and White students continued to outperform their peers statewide.
This report is one of several that examines the data to investigate equity in AISD. It describes the performance gaps between and among student groups district-wide for reading, math, writing, disciplinary removals/placements, and graduation rates.

During Fall 2015, the Austin Independent School District’s (AISD) Department of Research and Evaluation (DRE) supported the work of the Enrollment Innovation Design Team with several reports identifying leaver patterns and reasons.

This report provides an overview of the district’s college readiness outcomes and changes in the methods for determining students’ college readiness.
