Miami-Dade County Public High School Graduates: Suggestions for Recruitment. Information Capsule 2000-07C.
The report summarizes key indicators for Miami-Dade County public high schools to provide information useful to recruiters at Miami-Dade Community College (M-DCC) (Florida). Schools are grouped into high, moderate, and low performing categories based on the Florida School Indicators report. The report also displays continuation rates into public postsecondary education, and continuation to M-DCC, Florida International University, Broward, and other colleges and universities. The letter grade assigned to each school under the Florida School Accountability Act is shown, and Magnets are identified where applicable. Recruitment suggestions focus on honors (a priority area in the 2000-05 Strategic Plan), ESOL, and vocational programs. Table 1 displays Miami-Dade County public high schools sorted by the number of indicators "flagged" from the Florida School Indicators report. Information in the table includes comments about the schools based on the data, recruitment suggestions, the continuation rate into public postsecondary education if the rate was below 50%, the destination of high school graduates, and the existence of magnet programs. Tables 2 and 3 describe the background data used in the summary of Table 1. Table 2 displays the School Indicators selected for this report, and shows the State Average and Miami-Dade County average for each. Table 3 displays data on the destination of 1997-98 public high school graduates. (JA)
