Backstrand, Jeffrey R.; Donaldson, Kristi
Online Submission
This report is a longitudinal study of the college-going patterns of almost 13,500 Newark high school students from the district, charter, vocational technical, and parochial sectors. It includes students who graduated high school between 2011 and 2016 from the Newark Public Schools (NPS) -- both comprehensive and magnet, Essex County Vocational Technical Schools (ECVTS), KIPP New Jersey, and St. Benedict's Preparatory School (SBP). Taken together, these schools and districts represent about 85 percent of Newark high school students during this period. Building on a 2014 analysis of post-secondary outcomes for 2004-2011 NPS graduates, this report describes the college enrollment, persistence, and completion patterns of Newark high school graduates from multiple sectors. Current findings will aid Newark in identifying areas of improvement, strength, and success in the city's post-secondary pipeline. By gaining a better understanding of post-secondary outcomes -- including the gaps along the path to college enrollment, persistence, and completion -- Newark's students, parents, teachers, counselors, principals, community members, policy makers, and businesses can collectively evaluate the current systems and policies to better improve college outcomes for Newark's students moving forward. [This report is a joint project of the Newark City of Learning Collaborative and the School of Public Affairs and Administration, Rutgers University-Newark.]
