LCAP Key Performance Measures (KPMs)
At the Board meeting of November 17, 2016, a presentation regarding the Strategic Plan Key Performance Measures (KPMs) data points was made to the Board of Trustees.
The report sets benchmark data points for the Key Performance Measures (KPMs) as outlined in East Side Union High School District’s Strategic Plan, as well as the metrics used to evaluate the intended outcomes of the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). Metrics used in both the Strategic Plan and the LCAP are aligned to college and career readiness outcomes for students.
Key Performance Measures:
- Graduation Rate
- Dropout Rate
- A-G Completion Rate
- College & Career Readiness
- Closing the Achievement Gaps
ESUHSD Key Highlights:
- Overall, the District defined graduation rate increased by 2.8% (District Defined Cohort 2012-2016)
- Students that come in as 9th graders and stay with our District for all 4 years experience a higher graduation success rate. 4-year Cohort Graduation Rates for Class of 2016:
- Hispanic Grad Rate = 91.4%
- African American Grad Rate = 94.3%
- Asian Grad Rate = 96.8%
- Class of 2015:
- 73% of graduates enrolled in college in the Fall immediately after high school
- 92% of graduates who enrolled in college immediately following graduation returned to college for a second year
- A total of 5,392 students took 10,353 AP exams (2015-2016), reflecting an increase of +422 exams and +249 students compared to the previous school year
- 30.8% of students took at least one AP exam, and of those students, 65.4% scored a
3 or higher on at least one exam
- In the past 5 years, there's been an increase of 1,360 students taking AP exams
- 2016 A-G Course Completion Rate District defined = 51.4%
- Hispanic A-G Completion Rate = 31.3%
- African American A-G Completion Rate = 33.3%
- Asian A-G Completion Rate = 73.1%
There are still areas of improvement for Hispanic and African American students in terms of closing the achievement gaps with Asian and White student counterparts.
Areas Of Growth:
- Increased Local Graduation Rate
- Increased UC/CSU A-G Completion Rates
- Increased EAP College Readiness
- Increased Enrollment in AP Courses
Areas To Work On:
- Increase Graduation Rates for All Students
- Increase 9th Grade Success Rates
- Decrease Dropout rates for All Students
- Increase 9th Grade Success Rates
- Increase the Percentage of African American and Hispanic Students Taking AP Courses
- Increase UC/CSU A-G Completion Rates
- Increase Success Rates in Core Courses
The Board of Trustees accepted the report as presented. Next step includes having more concrete details on strategies and implementation of new programs to accomplish goals.
