Michael and Susan Dell Foundation Announces Launch of Ed-Fi Alliance

http://www.ed-fi.org/
The Michael and Susan Dell Foundation has announced the launch of the Ed-Fi Alliance, a wholly owned nonprofit subsidiary that will offer educators and administrators education data on every student in their classroom, school, district, or state. The Austin-based organization will inform states and districts on the Ed-Fi Solution, a standards-based data tool suite that integrates raw education data and information from many sources into Web-based dashboards, reports, and other applications. Available free under license to districts, state education agencies, and vendors, it includes a unifying data model, a data exchange and application framework, and sample dashboard source code. Developed by Double Line Partners with funding from MSDF, the solution also helps school and district administrators, and state and federal agencies to supplement or replace tools used for state or federal accountability reporting purposes.

Education Department Releases New School-Level Graduation Rate Data  (March 2013)
Report

http://tinyurl.com/cf9qtqz
The U.S. Department of Education has released provisional school-level graduation rates for 2010-11, the first school year for which all states used a common, rigorous measure for reporting high school graduates. The data release furthers the Department’s efforts to provide transparent information to parents and students about their schools and ensure all schools are preparing students for college and careers. Previously, the variety of methods states used to report high school graduation rates made comparisons among states unreliable. While the new measure is not comparable to previously reported rates, it provides a more accurate snapshot of high school graduation and can inform schools’ efforts to improve going forward. States, districts and schools can use the new, common metric to promote greater accountability and to develop strategies that will reduce dropout rates and increase graduation rates in schools nationwide.

It was developed in response to feedback from schools indicating a need for activities, lesson plans, and school-wide individualized learning plans (ILPs) implementation strategies.

The career development activities and resources in this guide are also useful for youth service professionals in the workforce development system.

 

The English Learner Dropout Dilemma: Multiple Risks and Multiple Resources  (February 2013)
Report

http://www.cdrp.ucsb.edu/pubs_reports.htm
“The English Learner Dropout Dilemma: Multiple Risks and Multiple Resources,” from the California Dropout Research Project at the University of California-Santa Barbara, examines consequences, causes, and solutions to high dropout rate among English language learners. The social, economic and health consequences of dropping out that threaten the general population affect EL students as well. While many of the same factors that produce dropouts in the general population apply to EL students, others are unique: tracking as a result of EL status, access to certified teachers, and a high stakes accountability system. The report sees three reforms as especially important for EL students: academic exposure, use of the primary language, and a shift from a deficit to an additive perspective.
