A Profile of the California Partnership Academies, 2004-2005
ConnectEd: The California Center for College and Career
State legislation launched the California Partnership Academies (CPAs) in 1984. Now operating in more than 200 comprehensive high schools, CPAs have been used as a model for high school reform in California and elsewhere. Academies typically feature multi-age learning groups, team teaching and career-based instruction. Teachers help students connect high school lessons to future employment scenarios. Several evaluations have found positive student effects associated with academies. This report provides a picture of the CPAs for the 2004-05 school year based on annual reports each site sends to the California Department of Education. Appendices include: (1) Percentage of California Partnership Academies Responding "Yes" and "No" to Various Questions on the 2004-05 Annual Report of the California Department of Education; (2) Summary Statistics from California Partnership Academies, 2004-05; (3) Number and Percentage of Students Enrolled in CPAs, by Gender, by Industry Area, and Number of Academies Focusing on Each Industry Area, 2004-05; and (4) Number and Percentage of Students Enrolled in CPAs, by Race/Ethnicity, by Industry Area, and Number of Academies Focusing on Each Industry Area, 2004-05.
