Most students become seniors in 4 years. Some don’t. Here’s why.

Historically, some students are held back in 9th grade, especially in high need districts, because they are not prepared for high school work. Therefore, they don’t become seniors within 4 years. This shows the percentage of 9th grade students held back each year since we began to collect data in 1995-96.

what should we do to close the achievement gap
What should we do to close the achievement gap?
  • Too many students reach high school unable to read and write and do math beyond the elementary level. Start in middle school and earlier to focus on those who are falling behind.
  • Create transition plans to help low performing 8th graders succeed in 9th grade.

  • Learn from those who are making impressive gains, getting students to pass at 65. Mobilize school staff to keep better track of each student, analyze problems, give extensive extra help.
  • Place the most qualified teachers in the lowest performing schools.
  • Adopt the Regents proposal to reform State Aid to schools.
