High school graduation is a key gateway in our society. Once past that milestone, young adults are more likely to go on to post-secondary career training or college. That post-secondary education and training sets students up for good careers.
To measure how successful Alamance Achieves is in this goal, we will measure two core indicators:
- High school graduation rates. In American society, high school graduation is the key that unlocks social mobility and career success.
- College enrollment rates. Nearly all good jobs require some post-secondary education or training, which can mean anything from a certificate earned at a community college to a four-year college degree.
In addition, the Alamance Achieves team will also track other indicators that contribute, positively or negatively, to these positive outcomes. These include:
- FAFSA completion
- Teen pregnancy rate
- Involvement in extracurricular activities
- ABSS senior survey/Pride survey data
- Number of students taking the ACT
- Average ACT scores
- Scholarship dollars awarded to students
- Number of AP/CTE courses completed
- Number of students graduating with credentials, military qualifications or apprenticeships
- Justice system involvement
