6Poverty Trends within Ethnic Groups While all 3 groups experienced increases in poverty after 2008, Hispanic and African-Americans children have sustained more than twice the poverty rates of White children.These are trends from the audited enrollment KIDS file, all grade levels, preschool and NG included.
7The population counts here, after 2009, have been slightly inflated by a change in the federal method for counting Hispanics.77
8Note that part of the decline in the African American population, and a small part of the rise is Hispanic Population after 2009, is due to changes in the federal definitions of ethnicity.
9Where are we now?4th year of transitioning to College & Career Ready Standards in Math and English Language Arts (ELA)First year of implementing new College & Career Ready Standards in Science and History/Government.Kansas just piloted the new Assessment in Math and ELA in Spring of 2014.All 286 School Districts are piloting new teacher/leader evaluation instruments that include student growth in performance on multiple measures.
10Where is Accountability? Accountability is customized at the building level, looking at:AchievementGrowthGapsReducing Non-Proficient StudentsEach building has a different target, based on where they started.We have moved away from annual AYP targets tostudent growth over time.
17COLLEGE AND CAREER READY means an individual has the academic preparation, cognitive preparation, technical skills, and employability skills to be successful in postsecondary education, in the attainment of an industry recognized certification or in the workforce, without the need for remediation.
24Kansans with Post-secondary Education Post-secondary Education = Credential through Advanced degree52%We have a gap to close in four short yearsSo we need more students completing a certification or a degree
25Kansans completing a Post-secondary degree or certificate Early 1970’s2018201425%75% of jobs in 70’s only required a diploma (and some didn’t require a diploma) and those were good paying jobs, most in manufacturing, a person could work their entire career and never have to go back to school and could easily live in the middle class.Now many of those jobs have transitioned to high-skill or become obsolete.To add to the complexity, Today’s top 10 jobs didn’t exist in 2004How do we prepare students for an ever-evolving workforce? Increase rigor, relevance, something career awareness guidance and the new KCCRS represent and encourage students to COMPLETE at PSSo let’s look at how our students are doing in Post-secondary52%64%
26Kansas Class of 2012Percentage of 2012 Graduates enrolled in Post-secondary (2 & 4 yr. institutions)77%
27Percentage of 2012 Graduates completing 1 year of post-secondary Kansas Class of 2012Percentage of 2012 Graduates completing 1 year of post-secondary50%Only half of the class of 2012 enrolling in PS completed 1 yearEven less will go on to complete a degree
29What If?We could increase the % of graduates entering postsecondary institutions?We could decrease the % of our graduates needing remediation postsecondary?We could increase the % of students successfully completing their first year? Second year?We could get more kids into “hard to fill” programs?THEN, we could close the gap between the % of jobs requiring postsecondary completion, and the % of Kansans acquiring postsecondary completion?
