LAUNCH Flagstaff — The Educational Data Shows…

| June 14, 2017

LAUNCH Flagstaff supports cradle–to–career initiatives to achieve a world-class education community wide. We envision world-class education as every student prepared for every opportunity. More specifically, it is a student-centered, holistic system of performance-based learning that:

  • facilitates personal mastery over time of relevant content and social-emotional skills
  • empowers critical thinkingself-advocacy and creative expression with
  • collaborative problem-solving and respectful discourse that
  • values diversity through multi-cultural literacy and a global perspective.
It is our goal, to build cross-sector relationships by using a data-driven collective impact framework to improve a core set of educational outcomes- kindergarten readiness, third grade reading at grade level, eighth grade math proficiency, high school graduation rates, and the enrollment onto a post-secondary career path. Improving these outcomes forms the foundation for the shared agenda of the LAUNCH Flagstaff partners, and through evaluation of local dis-aggregated data, we are able to determine what strategic actions are working for student success, and what needs improvement.

 

What The Data Shows

Third-Grade Reading Proficiency:  The data shows that approximately 73% of third-graders are performing at grade level in reading; therefore, community-wide data will reflect evidence of continuous improvement annually in the percentage of students reading on grade level by the end of third grade.

Eighth-Grade Math Proficiency:  The data shows that 56% of eighth graders are performing at grade level in math; therefore, community-wide data will reflect evidence of continuous improvement annually in the percentage of eighth-grade students performing at grade level in math.

High School Graduation:  The data shows that 85% of ninth-graders graduate high school in four years; therefore, community-wide data will reflect evidence of continuous improvement annually in the percentage of students graduating from high school.

Enrollment onto a Post-Secondary Career Path:  The data shows that only 55% of high school graduates in Flagstaff enroll in some form of post-secondary education; therefore, community-wide data will reflect evidence of continuous improvement annually in the percentage of high school graduates who enter a post-secondary career path including, but not limited to, a two or four-year degree program, military or civic service, training or apprenticeship leading to certification in a desired field.

Working together, our community is effectively positioned to continue to build community-wide momentum toward cultivating a culture of world-class education for all Flagstaff children.

Sincerely,


Paul Kulpinski
Partnership Director
