Response #1: College Readiness Data

Education Transformation Office (ETO) Schools have shown significant growth in College Readiness, both in terms of the second 800 Points as well as increased test scores on the American College Test (ACT). The 10 high schools in ETO use the ACT as a college readiness tool as opposed to the SAT. Below please find a chart that highlights ACT data during the past three years in terms of participation and performance, both overall and on individual ACT Assessments. Additionally, specific data points are given highlighting the progress made by these schools. School

Three Year Data Trends:
• • • • • • • ETO showed growth on all individual ACT tests as well as overall composite score ETO gains were equal to or higher than both the state and national gains Overall composite score was up at 8 out 10 high schools English was up at 9 out 10 schools Math either maintained or increased at 9 out of 10 schools Reading either maintained or increased at 9 out of 10 schools Science was up at 6 out of 10 schools

Response #1: College Readiness Data
Data Points from 2012:
• • • • • • • • ETO showed growth on all individual ACT tests as well as overall composite score ETO gains were higher than both the state and national gains ETO average in math was higher than the required concordant score for graduation Overall composite score was up at 9 out 10 high schools English was up at 7 out 10 schools Math was up at 7 out of 10 schools Reading was up at 4 out of 10 schools Science was up at 8 out of 10 schools

In terms of overall College Readiness Data (as established in the Second 800 Points), ETO Schools have increased their readiness rates as shown below: • • Reading Readiness: (↑36%) – Currently at 58% Math Readiness: (↑14%) – Currently at 29%

These increases were made despite changes to the College Readiness calculation and are attributed to an increased focus on a college going culture at all schools and added emphasis on college entrance exams.

Response #2: Acceleration Data
The Education Transformation Office (ETO) provides a wide variety of opportunities for students to participate in accelerated coursework. Below please find specific data on acceleration as well as data identifying how ETO has grown in this area over the past three years in relation to the second 800 points of high school accountability.

Response #2: Acceleration Data

AP Data • • 6,290 students participated in Advanced Placement (AP) courses over the two year period. The percent of students passing AP courses in ETO increased from 10.4% in 2011 to 13.3% in 2012. This represents a 2.9 percentage point increase. The percent of students participating in AP courses decreased by approximately 19% from 2011-12; however, this was done to strategically place students in Dual Enrollment courses. Miami-Dade County was recognized by the College Board for being seventh in the nation for the percent of African-American students passing AP courses (Level 3 or higher). Below please find data charts indicating how students performed over a two year period on specific AP exams.

As a result of the efforts put forth to expose students to Accelerated coursework, schools in ETO showed the following gains over a three year period (2010-2012) in Accelerated Participation and Performance in regards to the second 800 points of high school accountability: • • Accelerated Participation: 31% to 80% (↑49%) Accelerated Performance: 42% to 77% (↑35%)

Response #3: SPED Data

Through the 2012 school year, the Education Transformation Office (ETO) serviced 26 schools with a total population of approximately 24,000 students. According to the February FTE Report (the most recent one available), there were 3,121 students with disabilities who attended ETO schools. This accounts for approximately 13% of all students in ETO.

Response #4: CTE Programs
The Education Transformation Office (ETO) services 10 senior high schools, all of which have Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. Over the past two years, Career Academies have been expanded and aligned to CTE Programs in addition to expanding internships from 150 to 500. This has been done as a pathway to graduation for students as well as to increase participation and performance in CTE Testing for the Second 800 points. Below please find a chart highlighting programs offered at each school over the past 3 years as well as trend data highlighting the increased number of students who participated in and passed Industry certification examinations.
