Results in Diplomas Now Schools
Based on the goals set, the Diplomas Now team tracks attendance, behavior and course performance – student by student – on a biweekly basis. We regularly review the effectiveness of the strategy for the school and make adjustments accordingly. Twice a year, we report overall statistics for attendance, behavior and course performance for the school. We also survey teachers, principals and students to determine if they believe they are making the progress they want to make.
Already, we are seeing early promising results. During the 2013-2014 school year, Diplomas Now achieved a:
- 44 percent reduction in absenteeism
- 59 percent reduction in suspensions
- 57 percent reduction in students failing English
- 58 percent reduction in students failing math
