The purpose of this survey is to monitor high school students’ perceptions of their high school experience. Results are used to improve the campus environment and program supports for students.
The High School Exit Survey was administered online to seniors in every AISD high school during Spring 2010. In total, 3,574 seniors in the Class of 2010 completed the survey, for a response rate of 87.9 percent.
This report includes results for Austin Partners in Education (APIE) programs in 2019-2020 including math classroom coaching, GEAR UP tutoring, college readiness, and mentoring. It highlights continued academic programs serving students in middle and high school and describes APIE support provided to teachers' instruction. As classroom instruction transitioned to remote format due to the pandemic, APIE staff transitioned services to assist in the development of online curriculum, communication with students, and facilitation of instruction in a virtual format.
The cost-effectiveness of the CTE program continued to improve in 2012-2013. The percentage of college-ready CTE seniors increased over the previous year, and expenditures declined. Seniors’ college readiness rates did not differ by CTE status.
This report summarizes high school data seminar discussions and includes trends common across data sources, identified successes and challenges, and suggested resources to address students’ college preparation needs.
Compared to 2010–2011, the cost-effectiveness of the CTE program improved in 2011-2012. Also, CTE may be more successful than the regular curriculum at achieving the effect of college readiness among Hispanic and economically disadvantaged students.
Seniors in 2011 who concentrated in Career and Technical Education (CTE) were as college ready as non-CTE seniors. However, significant differences were found in the college readiness of CTE and non-CTE seniors based on ethnicity and income.
The CTE program was more cost-effective in 2013–2014 than it was in 2012–2013, despite a lower college readiness rate and an increase in the per student cost from the previous year. This was CTE’s third year of improvement in cost-effectiveness.
Career and Technical Education Program Evaluation Series Issue 1: College Readiness and Cost Effectiveness
This issue compares the college and career readiness of 2009–2010 AISD seniors who concentrated in Career and Technical Education (CTE) with that of non-CTE seniors. College readiness is then used to measure the cost effectiveness of the CTE program.
This report summarizes district Advanced Placement (AP) test results in 2019. AP test results may be used by higher education institutions to place students in courses and extend course credit to students who obtain high scores on the examinations.
