Accountability and Performance in Secondary Education in the Milwaukee Public Schools

This two-year grant, received from the U.S. Department of Education and administered by the Council of the Great City Schools, uses Milwaukee Public School (MPS) middle and high school transcript data to develop an "Early Warning" system to identify students at high risk of dropping out. Parallel tracks of work involved with the project include the development of an "on-time" indicator of student progress each year and the expansion of the existing MPS system of value-added performance to the high school level.
