Agenda Item Summary: An Equity for All 2025 Dashboard launched in March 2021 to provide formative and summative measures for the key performance indicators from the division’s strategic plan. Formative indicators updated in this mid-year reporting allow for division and school leaders to adjust in order to effect summative outcomes reported at the end of a school year. Formative indicators presented here for 2022-2023 show Black, Hispanic, Economically Disadvantaged, current English Learners (but not former ELs), and Student with Disabilities student groups continue to show the greatest rates of underrepresentation across KPIs. Within KPIs, suspensions show the largest disproportionalities across student groups.
Background: The Equity for All 2025 Dashboard displays all KPIs across student groups simultaneously to allow school and division leaders to see a broad picture of disproportionalities across student performance outcomes and within student groups using a representation index.
Recommendation: The Interim Superintendent recommends that the School Board review this information to inform future budgetary and programmatic decisions.
