Accelerating MOMENTUM! Excellent 2014-15 Student Results

07/01/2015

We are celebrating great results in RUSD!

This school year has been one of accelerating MOMENTUM for our Racine Unified students. Thanks to the excellent work of our RUSD staff this year, we are encouraged by great student achievement results at all grade levels across the District including: 

  • A more than 5% increase in our four-year graduation rate – among the highest increases in the state! 
  • Our black students’ graduation rate now exceeds the state average.
  • 7% more freshmen completing ninth grade with 6 or more credits, which means they are four times more likely to graduate. (We’ve gone from 60% to more than 74% in two years.
  • At every grade level (K-8) the percent of students reading at or above the national average on the MAP Assessment (Measures of Academic Progress) has increased. Our kindergarten and first grade average reading scores now exceed the national average. 
  • We are closing achievement gaps for students with disabilities and students of color, according to MAP results.
