MATTERS NOT REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
What Success Looks Like [P-12/HE (D) 1] – the Committees and representatives from the Malverne Union Free School District and Yonkers Public Schools continued the discussion that started at the September Board meeting about “What Success Looks Like” in high schools that surpass the overall NYS graduation rate of 80 percent for young men of color or have a three year positive trajectory. Both Malverne High School and Saunders Trades and Technical Senior High School significantly exceed the overall statewide graduation rate for all students with their young men of color. Additionally, these districts have worked closely with PLC Associates, Inc. to do an in-depth study into the work that is occurring at the district level to support these outcomes and document how they can be replicated. The discussion included three-year trend data on their graduation rates, as well as some of the practices that assist in their efforts.
