    School Cohort Graduation Rates: 2013

    data.ct.gov | Last Updated 2014-09-03T15:52:52.000Z

    This dataset contains the 2013 four-year cohort graduation rates by school. The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) introduced the four-year cohort graduation rate with the graduating class of 2009. This approach was created when Connecticut and 49 other states signed an agreement with the National Governors’ Association to develop a uniform system for tracking students. The four-year cohort graduation rate is calculated by tracking an individual cohort, or group of students, from their initial entrance into Grade 9 through to graduation. The four-year cohort graduation rate represents the percentage of students who earn a standard high school diploma within four years. The calculation uses individual student-level data from the state's Public School Information System (PSIS) that school districts submitted and superintendents certified. Notes: Double plus symbol (††) denotes not applicable; Asterisk symbol (*) denotes fewer than six in a cohort is suppressed; Out-placed students are counted only in district graduation calculation; Row percentages may not add to 100 percent because of rounding; District graduation rates may not be the same as the average of the graduation rates of the number schools in that district because of out-placed students.

    State Department of Education Next Generation School Accountability data 2014-2015

    data.ct.gov | Last Updated 2016-03-03T19:55:18.000Z

    Connecticut’s Next Generation Accountability System is a broad set of 12 indicators that help tell the story of how well a school is preparing its students for success in college, careers and life. The new system moves beyond test scores and graduation rates and instead provides a more holistic, multifactor perspective of district and school performance and incorporates student growth over time. The 12 Indicators include: 1. Academic achievement status measured by state assessments 2. Academic growth 3. Assessment participation rate 4. Chronic absenteeism 5. Preparation for postsecondary and career readiness – coursework 6. Preparation for postsecondary and career readiness – exams 7. Graduation – on track in ninth grade 8. Graduation – four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate – all students 9. Graduation – six-year adjusted cohort graduation rate – high needs 10. Postsecondary entrance rate – all students (college enrollment) 11. Physical fitness 12. Arts access

    SAT School Participation and Performance: 2012-2013

    data.ct.gov | Last Updated 2014-09-03T15:51:59.000Z

    This dataset contains data by school on student SAT scores relative to the SAT College and Career Readiness (CCR) Benchmark score of 1550 (critical reading, mathematics and writing sections combined) for the graduating classes of 2012 and 2013. According to research conducted by the College Board*, a score of 1550 indicates that a student will have a 65 percent or greater likelihood of achieving a B- average or higher during the first year of college. This dataset also provides an estimated SAT Participation Rate, which equals the number of SAT test-taking seniors in the school divided by the number of seniors enrolled in the school as a percentage. These participation rates are considered an estimate because the grade level of the SAT test-taker is self-reported by the student at the time of registration for the SAT while the total number of seniors enrolled in the school is reported to the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) by the district. These are the best available estimates of SAT participation rates. The Benchmark Performance reflect the results of only those who participate in the SAT. Because participation rates vary from school to school, the CSDE provides both the estimated Participation rates together with the Benchmark Performance in order to promote fair and valid comparisons across schools. Note: The data are suppressed when there are too few test-takers to sufficiently protect privacy. *The research report can be found at: http://research.collegeboard.org/sites/default/files/publications/2012/7/researchreport-2011-5-sat-college-readiness-benchmark-secondary-performance.pdf

    Educational Attainment, 2000-2010

    chhs.data.ca.gov | Last Updated 2017-06-14T18:11:25.000Z

    This table contains data on the percent of residents aged 25 years and older educational attainment (percent completing high school, associates degree, college or more advanced degree) for California, its regions, counties, cities/towns, and census tracts. Data is from the U.S. Census Bureau, Decennial Census and American Community Survey. The table is part of a series of indicators in the Healthy Communities Data and Indicators Project of the Office of Health Equity (https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/OHE/Pages/Healthy-Communities-Data-and-Indicators-Project-(HCI).aspx). Greater educational attainment has been associated with health-promoting behaviors including consumption of fruits and vegetables and other aspects of healthy eating, engaging in regular physical activity, and refraining from excessive consumption of alcohol and from smoking. Completion of formal education (e.g., high school) is a key pathway to employment and access to healthier and higher paying jobs that can provide food, housing, transportation, health insurance, and other basic necessities for a healthy life. Education is linked with social and psychological factors, including sense of control, social standing and social support. These factors can improve health through reducing stress, influencing health-related behaviors and providing practical and emotional support. More information about the data table and a data dictionary can be found in the About/Attachments section.
