|Program Goal: To enable low-performing students to improve their achievement to meet challenging standards|
|Objective 1 of 2: Student achievement in core subjects generally will show marked improvement in comprehensive school reform (CSR) program schools.|
|Indicator 1.1 of 1: AYP results: The percentage of Comprehensive School Reform schools that have or have had a CSR grant and made AYP|
Source: U.S. Department of Education, Consolidated State Performance Report, grantee submissions.
Next Data Available: June 2006
Data Validated By: No Formal Verification.
It should be noted that each year's data will represent a different cohort of schools reporting on their progress after three years of implementing CRS. This change in cohort means that a variation in the percentage meeting AYP may be a factor of the schools reporting rather than an indication of improvement or lack of it.
Limitations: The data for this indicator were self-reported by state educational agencies.
Explanation: FY 2004 data are baseline data. The target for FY 2005 is baseline plus 1%.
|Objective 2 of 2: The number of schools providing high-quality curriculum and instruction and improving student outcomes will increase each year.|
|Indicator 2.1 of 1: Impact on school improvement: By 2014 no schools that have received CSR program funds will be designated as in need of improvement, while CSR funds continue to be targeted on the lowest achieving schools.|
