Public Policy Forum
This is the 13th annual report on the conditions affecting the Racine Unified School District (RUSD). This year, the analysis again focuses on the long-term historical trends in RUSD and compares the district to nine peer districts across the state. The peer districts are those with the most similar enrollments to RUSD. The report is configured in accordance with district-determined quality objectives of operational efficiency, student engagement, and student achievement. To assess RUSD's progress in meeting those objectives, the report analyzes finance data, attendance and disciplinary data, and standardized test scores and graduation rates. Context is provided with enrollment and demographic data. New to the report this year are three features intended to better link the report to district reform efforts. Throughout the report, data that speak to any of the district's North Star performance targets are highlighted in a blue sidebar. In addition, the five-year trends in third grade reading are organized into school performance quadrants to better identify those schools demonstrating high achievement and score improvement, as well as those with low initial achievement, but demonstrated improvement. Finally, this year's report includes aggregate results of the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test administered to most students twice a year. These scores provide a better understanding of student learning over time. (Contains 28 tables and 27 figures.)
