Getting On Track to Graduation: Ninth Graders’ Credit Accumulation in Philly

Getting On Track to Graduation: Ninth Graders’ Credit Accumulation in the School District of Philadelphia, 2014-2016

Abstract
PERC’s report retroactively applies the School District of Philadelphia’s new Ninth Grade On-Track Definition to two ninth-grade SDP cohorts to determine the number of students on track to graduation, the characteristics of on- and off-track students, and how on-track rates differ across high schools. This analysis provides a benchmark against which progress can be measured, identifies characteristics of students and schools that might need additional support, and has timely implications for policy and practice.
