Announcing Our 2014 Community Achievement Scorecard

With the invaluable help of its Data Support Council, the Commit! Partnership presents its 2014 Community Achievement Scorecard. Rather than comparing one district to another or one school to another, this scorecard focuses on what is most important: our collective ability to support Dallas County’s 750,000+ students on their journey from cradle to career. Overall analysis of our scorecard reflects the following gains:
    • Across the board gains in four of our K-12 indicators
    • Our region now exceeds the state in the percentage of students taking the SAT/ACT
    • Continued improvement in postsecondary retention and 4-year and 6-year completion reates

Public-Private Partnership

An unprecedented partnership between 18 Dallas ISD elementary schools serving 11,370 Pre-K-5th grade students and 10 private schools formed in 2013 to advance 3rd grade reading proficiency.
The public-private partnership between these 28 schools focus on improving literacy through two key strategies:

    1. Create collaborative partnerships that bring valuable resources to local schools, including tutoring, books, volunteers, and unique programming.
    2. Hold bi-monthly lunch and learn meetings where guest speakers and network members share best practices.
Responding to data showing only 2 in 5 children in North Dallas reading on grade level, the partnership has focused on engaging high school students from the nearby private schools to tutor 3rd-5th grade students across the Dallas ISD elementary schools. Since the partnership launched, private school students from the network have contributed a combined total 15,000 hours across 10 Dallas ISD schools.

Community Mobilizes around Pre-K Enrollment in South Oak Cliff and Molina

As shared previously, more than 40 community organizations have joined together to support students and families in Dallas ISD’s South Oak Cliff and Molina feeder patterns. Their shared focus: supporting children’s early childhood development and, therefore, their path to college and career. Their goals: increasing the number of children entering Kindergarten ready to succeed and reading on a college-ready pace by 3rd grade. Fueled by data showing that students attending pre-K in the local elementary schools are more than twice as likely to enter “Kindergarten Ready” than those who do not, community partners in both feeder patterns have seized the opportunity to increase enrollment of eligible children in pre-K. The networks have mobilized to spread the word about Dallas ISD’s Pre-K Registration Week (April 6-11) by using their unique relationships to reach parents and raise awareness.
