Title:Putting kids on the pathway to college: How is your school doing? A college pathways rubric
Organization:Annenberg Institute for School Reform
Short Description:This five-part tool (one of the College Pathways series) was developed to help anyone with a stake in improving high schools assess the extent to which a school has adopted practices that researchers have discovered in high-performing high schools. The tool presents four key components, along with indicators of good practice, found in a group of high schools whose low-income students of color are “beating the odds."
Annotation:This five-part tool (one of the College Pathways series) was developed to help anyone with a stake in improving high schools assess the extent to which a school has adopted practices that researchers have discovered in high-performing high schools. The tool presents four key components, along with indicators of good practice, found in a group of high schools whose low-income students of color are “beating the odds”: although they entered ninth grade with well-below-grade level skills and test scores, almost 70 percent of these students graduate four years later planning to attend college or technical school (see sidebar).
