1 Education Trust West Educational Opportunity Audit San Diego Unified School District Tami L. Pearson, Ed.D. Dinah Consuegra Phyllis Hart 2010 THE EDUCATION TRUST WEST

2 Today s Objectives Provide San Diego Unified School District s School Board with an understanding of the Education Trust West s Educational Opportunity Audit and Implementation Design process. Review list of implications for implementation of A-G for all students beginning with the freshmen class in Fall of 2010.

3 San Diego Unified School District s Resolution April, 2009 Resolution Adopting UC A-G Course Sequence as Part of High School Graduation Requirement Beginning with students entering 9 th grade in the fall of 2010

4 10 Districts have either made A-G the graduation requirements or made formal steps to do so: San Diego USD (resolution 2014) Carlsbad USD (resolution) San Marcos (resolution) San Jose USD(current graduation req.) Dublin USD (grad req 2013) San Francisco USD (resolution 2014) Oakland USD (resolution 2015) Los Angeles USD (grad req 2016) Napa Valley USD (grad req ) Montebello USD (resolution)

5 Adding up all the school districts: Over 1,000,000 Now have the opportunity to access rigorous courses preparing them for college and career.

6 The Context for the Educational Opportunity Audit and Implementation Design:

7 Ready for Career = Ready for College In the agricultural age, post-secondary education was a pipe dream for most Americans. In the industrial age it was the birthright of only a few. By the space age, it became common for many. Today, it is just common sense for all. --National Commission on the High School Senior Year, 2001

8 Report after report confirming same bleak news America is losing ground because there are not enough welleducated young people to take on jobs the 21 st century demands.

9 This is especially true as the percentage of students who historically have not attended college (ELL, Latino, lowincome) continues to increase. And baby boomers retire.

10 Growing Need for Higher Levels of Education: Projections of Education Shortages and Surpluses in 2012 Shortage Surplus Bachelor s Degree Associates Degree Some College High School Less Than High School -4,000,000-3,000,000-2,000,000-1,000, ,000,000 2,000,000 3,000,000 4,000,000 Source: Analysis by Anthony Carnevale, 2006 of Current Population Survey ( ) and Census Population Projection Estimates

14 California Is Now An ADP State January, 2008 California signed on to the American Diploma Project Governor, State Superintendent, UC s, CSU s, Community Colleges, Independent Colleges, Business, CTE First step is to determine what college readiness is for students Alignment Institute (English and math) Other phases Graduation requirements, data systems, assessment (EAP), accountability

15 A college ready/career ready curriculum helps students know more and do better, regardless of their path after high school.

16 The Education Trust West Signature Toolkit: Educational Opportunity Audit and Implementation Design: Moving from Rational to Action Purpose: To determine current levels of high school preparation and to identify the changes necessary to implement a college preparatory curriculum for all students.

43 Transcript Analysis INTERVENTIONS/CHOKEPOINTS Repeated failures in math, especially Algebra and Geometry Students struggling in Algebra rarely went any further in math, most dropped to a lower course for their second math credit (Algebra is the state graduation requirement) Math Intervention of choice: repeat the course, (up to 6 semesters of failing Algebra!), or drop to less challenging course

44 Transcript Analysis PATTERNS Students getting by with academic minimums and no clear pathways. Only 2 clear tracks: college track and non-college track. Students who start HS in non-college track, rarely move up into college-track. The only real movement between tracks is to drop down from college coursework to less rigorous after struggling.
