2020 Vision Goals & Framework   

How We Measure Success

We identified key measurable indicators evidenced to impact the racial disproportionality of academic achievement among Berkeley students. Based on national research and best practices, the indicators are:

  • Kindergarten Readiness
  • Reading Proficiency by 3rd Grade
  • Student Attendance
  • Successful Completion of 9th Grade Math Standards
  • College and Career Readiness
  • Disproportionality in Suspensions
  • Disproportionality in Police Contacts
  • Student Engagement

These measures have helped in our planning and will allow us to assess how we are doing in our work. We are currently working to refine the specifics of these measures and establish baseline data and systems for data collection.

Nationally, Kindergarten Readiness, Reading Proficiency by 3rd Grade, and Student Attendance are recognized as critical gateways for student success and key components in closing the academic achievement gap. Building upon this evidence, these three areas were selected first (among the indicators we identified) for interagency collaborative program development currently underway. The next two indicators of focus include Successful Completion of 9th Grade Math Standards and College and Career Readiness.
