Putting Kids on the Pathway to College: How Is Your School Doing? The College Pathways Tools
Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University (NJ1)
The College Pathways series grew out of the findings in "Beating the Odds," a study of thirteen high-performing New York City high schools by Carol Ascher and Cindy Maguire for the Annenberg Institute for School Reform. Each of the schools admitted ninth-graders with high poverty rates and far-below-average reading and math scores but produced four-year graduation rates and college acceptance above the district average, and well above other high schools serving similar students. To help other schools benefit from what these schools have learned, the Annenberg Institute has developed a set of tools that schools can use to assess their status in the key component areas and to strengthen their practices to put all their students on a path-way to college. The tools in this series are intended to be used together in order to involve the full school community--educators, families, students, and community members--in assessing their school's efforts and finding ways to strengthen them. This series include the following tools: (1) Framework and Rubric (Carol Ascher, Anne T. Henderson, and Cindy Maguire); (2) Student Survey Tool (Carol Ascher, Anne T. Henderson, and Sara McAlister); (3) Focus Group Protocol for Students (Anne T. Henderson and Carol Ascher); and (4) Focus Group Protocol for Families (Anne T. Henderson, Kavitha Mediratta, Carol Ascher, and Sara McAlister).
