Where SPPS Stands on the Draft Strategic Plan 06-09 Outcomes Binder – Section 4 – District-Wide Data Overview of Demographics Outcome 1A (proxy): SAT10 Results for 2006 Outcome 1B (proxy): Summary of MCA Apples to Apples for 2005 Outcome 2: MCA-II Index Targets for 2006 Outcome 3: Dropout Rate Outcome 4: Higher Education Enrollment Updates Let’s Celebrate!
Overview of Demographics Changes among the three largest demographic groups in SPPS over the past 7 years: Stability in total number of Asian-American students, who are primarily limited English Proficient (LEP) and receive Free or Reduced Price Lunch (FRL). However, there is an increased proportion of Asian-American students who are immigrant. Significant decline in Caucasian students who are primarily non-LEP and do not receive FRL Significant increase in African-American students who are non-LEP and receive FRL.
Outcome 1A (proxy): SAT10 Results for 2006 Administered each spring since 2003 In 2006, this was given after the MCA-II and the TEAE (Many ELL students took all three tests) In 2006, most of the new immigrants were included for the first time
Outcome 1B (proxy): Summary of MCA Apples to Apples for 2005 Compares students in SPPS with their Minnesota peers Matching students on: Ethnicity Free/Reduced Lunch Eligibility ELL Status Special Education students excluded Groups with 100 or more students tested per grade
