Summary
Where Achievement Begins
San Fernando Effect
•
San Fernando Valley – 14 high schools, 80% parent,
student dissatisfaction with counseling program
•
Superintendent Robert Collins: “If you don’t submit a
written plan – for college, the military, a trade
school, or a job, you will not be able to attend the
graduation ceremonies.”
•
“Every student’s goal and dream is important and
should be nurtured by school administration,
counselors and teachers.”
Where Achievement Begins
Positive Results
•
June 2002: 18 months later – 100% of 3,764 grads
completed a written ‘post-secondary
commitment’ plan
•
Result: 10% decrease in the dropout rate
•
Result: 10% increase in the number of students
accepted to the University of California
•
Result: College admission rose 150% for African
Americans, 31% for Latinos.
Where Achievement Begins
“Achievement
is closer
than you think.”
Where Achievement Begins
Drive School Achievement
Ample evidence exists to indicate the impact of
more motivated students on key school outcomes
Achievement Outcome: Academic Achievement
“Students attending middle schools with more fully
implemented comprehensive guidance programs
reported….(c) believing education was more relevant and
important to their futures, ….(f) earning higher grades.”
(Helping 7th Graders Be Safe and Successful, Lapan, Gysbers et al, 2001)
Where Achievement Begins
Drive School Achievement
Achievement Outcome: Academic Achievement
“Students grades rose as they spent more time in career
academies. This study compared student grades before and
after enrollment in the academies.”
(California Partnership Academies – Evaluation Report, 1997)
“Participation in well implemented career academies raised
students’ GPA’s. This conclusion was based on a
comparison to non-academy students in the same district.”
(Career Academy Programs in California, Maxwell & Rubin, 2000)
Where Achievement Begins
To Drive School Achievement
Achievement Outcome: Dropout/Attendance Rates
“Students who can articulate a meaningful connection to
future education and/or employment, “are less likely to drop
out; their attendance and grades improve; …(and they have)
enhanced motivation and better planning for the future.”
(School-to-Work: Making a Difference in Education, Hughes et al, 2001)
Vertical/Horizontal Services
Medical Model
Vertical Services – responsive to specific types of
medical needs (eg. heart, skin, EENT, optometry,
spinal cord, pediatrics, emergency)
Horizontal Services – wellness - preventative services
(eg. nutrition/diet, physical fitness, stress mgmt.)
Proactive wellness services have positive value for all
physical ‘verticals’ of medicine.
Vertical/Horizontal Services
New Model for Education
Vertical Services – responsive to specific types of
educational needs (eg. English, math, biology,
geography, physical education, trades, Spanish)
Horizontal Services – motivation - proactive services
(eg. educational planning, balanced career/life
planning, financial planning, self-management)
Proactive motivation services have positive value for
all skills/information ‘verticals’ of education.
