School Outcomes

  1. Disciplinary action rate- The frequency of disciplinary actions is a strong, leading indicator of academic success or failure. Fewer disciplinary actions mean that students are more likely to be engaged in learning. Also, every disciplinary action costs time and money. 
  2. Dropout rate- Dropouts are an extreme indicator of the lack of academic success and lead to high personal and societal costs. 
  3. Achievement Exam Performance-  Any school improvement program needs to have a focus on student achievement.The Pennsylvania Department of Education is pushing all testing to be online. Students taking online achievement tests will need to rely on a different skill set to perform well in an online testing environment and the 1:1 initiative will provide a different mode of learning that will develop those skills.
  4. Implement- a model of continuous school-wide improvement.
  5. Paper and copying expenses- Reduction in paper, printing, and copying across the school. 
  6. Paperwork reduction- This factor is a proxy for efficiency savings attributable to technology. When paperwork is reduced, teachers have more time to spend on educationally productive tasks, and schools save other costs (such as storage, records retention and human resources spent at the copy machine).
  7. Teacher attendance- Substitute teachers cost the district money and may impact student performance. 
  8. AP course enrollment- This factor indicates the quality of curriculum and instruction and reduces the time required to graduate from college, saving money for families.
  9. College attendance plans- This factor indicates the quality of curriculum and instruction and facilitates students’ educational planning in post-secondary matriculation.
  10. Course completion rates- This factor indicates student engagement, achievement, and school quality. Conversely, course failure has severe negative academic and financial implications.
  11. Dual/joint enrollment in college- This factor indicates a high level of student achievement and savings in future college expenses. 
  12. Graduation rates- This factor indicates school quality and effective curriculum, instruction, and student planning.
  13. Focused equipment deployment- Elimination of computer labs, computer carts, and technology locations as locations of learning. Learning occurs anywhere at anytime.
