The dropout crisis l.jpg
The Dropout Crisis

  • Nationally, nearly one in five high schools has weak promoting power (<60%).

  • Arizona is one of 15 states that collectively house almost 80% of the country’s high schools producing the highest number of dropouts.

    Sunnyside High School and Desert View High School made the nation’s “dropout factory” list in a follow-up brief given to the Associated Press from Johns Hopkins University in 2007. Based upon data for the graduating classes of 2004-06, 35 high schools in Arizona—one in five—made this list of schools that qualified by having weak promoting power (<60%).

    Challenges – Financial History

    July 2008 – SUSD adopts a $98.7 million FY09 M&O budget

    May 2009 - SUSD directed to reduce its FY09 M&O budget to $96.7 million. Expenditures are reduced to $96.7 million level.

    July 2009 – SUSD adopts a $93.8 million FY10 M&O budget. Prior Year expenditures @ $96.7 million – SUSD facing a $2.9 million deficit.

    September 2009 – SUSD directed to reduce it FY10 M&O budget to ???? (a budget of $91.9 = $4.8 million deficit)


    Susd s response l.jpg
    SUSD’s Response

    • Students and quality first instruction need to be the first priority

    • Reduce programs first, personnel second

    • Maintain staffing & sectioning allocations

    • Academics have priority over activities

    • Achieve savings through maximizing alignment & efficiency


    Responses financial l.jpg
    Responses - Financial

    • $2.9 million savings formula

      $1.1 million repurposing aides

      $1.8 million staffing & sectioning

    • $4.8 million savings formula

      • $2.9 above plus:

      • ESI contract savings $0.4 million

      • Prevention Specialist funding change $0.3 million

      • Organizational efficiency (hiring freeze in non-instructional areas, attrition savings, Homebound Program refinement) $0.2 million

      • Implement furloughs as a last resort - $1.0 million

    • Attendance

      Student: ADM is the lifeblood of all school districts. Keeping absences below 5.7% through first 100 days ensures maximum funding.

      Staff: No one can do your job better than you. Reducing staff absences also will result in reduced substitute costs.

    • Organizational efficiency

    • Access to the Literacy CORE -It is strongly recommended that schools use their current reading/Literacy adoption for a portion of the four-hour block and accommodate for the needs of English language learners.

    • Explicit development of language -Schools are encouraged to use the current Language Development materials and best practices to develop the four Domains of Language.

    • Deliberate interactions with language models -Opportunities must be made available for ELLs to integrate with mainstream students.

    Rigor/Relevance Framework

    International Center for Leadership in Education

    The Rigor/Relevance Framework is a tool developed by staff of the International Center for Leadership in Education to examine curriculum, instruction and assessment. It is based on two dimensions of higher standards and student achievement. Knowledge Taxonomy, a continuum based on the six levels of Bloom's Taxonomy, describes the increasingly complex ways in which we think.

    Application Model is one of action. Its five levels describe putting knowledge to use.
