The current report looks at the effects of the Green Dot Locke (GDL) transformation on students over the past three years. Although the GDL transformation began in fall 2007 (with two small off-site schools), the majority of Locke students were not included in the transition until fall 2008. Comparing GDL students to a matched sample of students at Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), using propensity score matching, results suggested that 9th graders who entered GDL generally performed better on a range of student outcome measures than they would have if they attended a comparable LAUSD high school. Positive GDL transformation effects were generally more prevalent for the second and third cohorts of students than for the first cohort. Appended are: (1) Data Variables; (2) Estimation of Treatment Effects on Outcomes Not Observed for All Students; (3) Comparison of Green Dot Students and Their Matched Control students (Cohorts 1 and 3); and (4) Evaluation Question 1 Tables. (Contains 33 tables, 15 figures and 3 footnotes.)
