School Choice Demonstration Project
This report is the fifth in a series of annual reports produced by the School Choice Demonstration Project (SCDP) providing descriptive information about the schools participating in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP). Following a brief history of the MPCP, this year's report contains descriptive statistics about schools participating in the MPCP and provides comparisons to Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) when possible. A total of 107 schools participated in the MPCP for the entire 2010-11 academic year, with 20,996 students enrolled in private schools using MPCP vouchers. Generally speaking, MPCP students made up a large part of participating schools' total enrollment--the average school-level percentage of MPCP students in these schools was 83 percent. Seventy-three percent of participating schools had student enrollments that were greater than 80 percent MPCP students, while 58 percent had MPCP enrollment percentages above 90 percent. Collectively, private schools participating in the MPCP in 2010-11 offered the full range of grade options, from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Eighty-nine percent of schools served elementary students, while 79 percent served middle school students. Twenty-five percent offered high school. Appended are: (1) Details of Non-Respondents; (2) List of Schools that Participated in the MPCP for the Entire 2010-11 School Year; and (3) MPCP Participating Schools No Longer Receiving Public Funds, 2006-07 through 2010-11. (Contains 17 tables, 8 figures and 6 footnotes.) [For the "The Milwaukee Parental Choice Program: Descriptive Report on Participating Schools, 2009-2010. SCDP Milwaukee Evaluation.
