This report illustrates the 2015–2016 graduation rate for a cohort of 2012–2013 9th-grade students who had ever been categorized as an English language learner (ever-ELL) and reasons ever-ELLs in that cohort left Austin Independent School District (AISD) without graduating.
This report summarizes various academic outcomes for only a single, closed cohort, or class, of first-time ninth-grade students between the 1993-1994 and 1997-1998 school years.
The most powerful predictors of overall dropout risk among 9th graders were failing either reading or math TAKS tests, attendance below 90%, and being 16 years or older at the start of the school year.
Question: What is the Demographic and At-Risk Profile of 2004-2005 Official Dropouts in Comparison to the Remaining AISD Population in Grades 7-12?
This report describes the demographic and at-risk profiles of the official secondary school dropouts and the remaining AISD secondary population.
English language learners may have different instructional needs based on their English proficiency, academic knowledge, and number of years in U.S. schools. Analysis of these data helped define 6 ELL performance groups at the 9th grade level.
For the 2006–2007 At-Risk 6th-grade cohort, more fine arts enrollment in middle school was correlated with more positive high school outcomes for students in the following areas: academic persistence (i.e., graduating, completing the GED, or maintaining enrollment beyond their expected graduation date), attendance, standardized achievement tests in math and reading, and discipline.
This report describes the AISD at-risk student population and expenditures for 2012-2013, results from program evaluations conducted in 2011-2012 and 2012-2013, and the longitudinal disparity between performance of at-risk and not-at-risk students.
The disparity in passing rates of at-risk and not at-risk students decreased for nearly half of STAAR subjects and grades, but increased in nearly as many cases. However, the gap narrowed to the smallest measured in six years of graduation rates.
Ninth-grade predictors of dropout risk among English language learners were having an attendance rate below 90%, being 16 years or older, earning less than 5 credits, attending a Title I campus and scoring beginning or intermediate on TELPAS reading.
These reports summarize evaluation results of AISD's ACME Austin Collaborative for Mathematics Education for 1998-1999.
