This report includes two studies that describe the local context for teacher employment decisions. The first examines the local labor market, and the second examines employment for teachers who left Austin Independent School District (AISD).
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.
Graduates from AISD in the Classes of 2011 through 2014 were increasingly more likely than their peers statewide to have been college ready in English language arts, math, and both subjects. Economically disadvantaged, African American, and Hispanic students closed gaps against their peers, and White students continued to outperform their peers statewide.
