Miller, Shazia Rafiullah; Luppescu, Stuart; Correa, Macarena
Consortium on Chicago School Research
This school report follows Vivaldi students in two ways. First, it tracks for five year members of the eighth-grade class of 1997 who enrolled in Chicago Public Schools (CPS) high schools or Academic Preparatory Centers (APCs). Second, it follows members of the eighth grade classes of 1997 to 2001 for one year to show their achievement during their first year after elementary school using the "on-track" indicator. The on-track indicator is important because it is strongly related to students' likelihood of graduating. (Contains 10 tables and 2 figures.)
