Advanced Academic Enrollment and Completion By Subgroup

Description: This measure is often used as a proxy for school quality.  Residents and businesses are attracted to areas with high quality schools. While any particular metric of school quality cannot encompass the full breadth of what a school does, perceptions of school quality are important in that they drive location decisions for parents and companies.

Performance Measure: Percent of Graduates Who Passed at Least One Advanced Enrollment Course by Subgroup  measures the percent of Fairfax County high school graduates that have passed at least one AP/IB/Dual enrollment course by subgroup (economically disadvantaged, English learner, and students with disabilities).

Data  Student Success – Report to the School Board (April 2018) – page 9

Interpretation: A significant increase in the percent of English learners who have passed at least one AP/IB/Dual Enrollment course.  All subgroups remain steady at 70%. Typically, this data may be interpreted as college readiness for students within a certain subgroup.
