How Dallas ISD Middle Schools are doing 1-18-15

Below is a just completed report about DISD Middle Schools, listed in order by student poverty from the highest poverty level schools to the least, with the ranking by School Effectiveness Indices and the percentage of limited English proficiency students also given.

Look at the schools with the highest poverty and highest LEP percentages who are also doing the best with the highest SEI scores.

The two middle schools with the most actively used School Time Capsule Projects for the most years are Quintanilla Middle School since 2005 and Greiner Middle School since 2009.  Student performance improves as students more actively focus on their own futures.  Actively planning for the future is one of the most powerful factors helping to overcome hindrances associated with poverty and limited English proficiency.  It is one part of a complex system needed for our students to embrace high expectations for themselves and excel!

I welcome questions.

Notice that only two schools have higher poverty rates that Quintanilla and only 4 have higher LEP percentages.
