Making Progress through California Multiple Pathways: Findings from the ConnectEd Network of Schools Evaluation 2007-2008--Lessons Learned from Our Grantmaking Programs. Insight
James Irvine Foundation
High school students participating in 16 California multiple pathways programs generally graduated at higher rates, met university requirements in greater numbers, performed better on high school exit exams and were more engaged in school and learning. This report summarizes a 2007-2008 study of the ConnectEd Network of Schools, capturing positive results as well as challenges. Results are not considered conclusive, but provide encouragement and insight as Irvine launches a larger-scale demonstration: the California Multiple Pathways District Initiative. The report is also intended to offer insights to funders, policymakers and practitioners who, like Irvine, see great potential in California multiple pathways to help students build a strong foundation for success in college and career--and life. The study was conducted by MPR Associates, Inc., a leading education research and consulting firm. (Contains 4 exhibits.)
