Compact Commitment: We measure the impact of our work and adjust practice as needed using such tools as the High School Reports and Community College Reports. These reports can support other commitments such as: Implement practices to make students’ senior year of high school count and strengthen the rigor of overall high school course taking Implement policies and practices allowing for multiple measures for course placement Implement developmental education enhancements that increase students completing college-level coursework Adopt and expand access to effective strategies promoting the persistence of recent high school graduates and reengaged youth
Community and Technical College Reports Coming Soon! Background and Purpose Great feedback received from CTC data partners at August 13 th meeting! Data includes: -Demographics and CTC enrollment patterns -Longitudinal analysis from HS to CTC -CTC progress by Road Map grads -Profile of Running Start students and outcomes
College Going for Road Map Graduates About 60% of Road Map Region Students directly enroll in College after graduating from High School. 48% of those directly enrolled attend Puget Sound Coalition Colleges
Coming Attractions: Longitudinal Analysis Across K12 and College Do successful college students take math in their senior year? If yes, what class? What is the relationship between HS GPA and college persistence, e.g. academic progress? For each college, what are the biggest feeder high schools? How are the College Bound scholarship students doing in college? What regional high schools have the lowest direct enrollment rates? Your ideas
Next Steps Continue to incorporate feedback received Send CTC data partners report drafts for review and comment Schedule a follow-up meeting to review more finalized reports with CTC data partners Share data with Road Map-related CTC projects, e.g. Postsecondary Subcommittee and Innovation Fund
Compact Commitment: Both Districts and Colleges will support the development and implementation of reengagement programming for opportunity youth (16-24 year olds not connected to school or work) that links and integrates high school completion with postsecondary education.
20,000 One-fifth of all 16-24 year-olds in our region are disconnected from school and work
Opportunity Youth Action Plan The focus is building a robust, coordinated, diverse system of re-engagement pathways designed to help youth and young adults reconnect to education and progress towards a college or career credential and living-wage work. Plan is organized around four goals: 1.Improve the SUPPLY of re-engagement pathways in the region 2.Increase COORDINATION of re-engagement pathways in the region 3.Improve the QUALITY of re-engagement pathways in the region 4.Increase AWARENESS of & ACCESS to re-engagement pathways
