  • What Does 9th Grade Success Mean and Why Is It Important?: With the district focusing on grade 9 as being pivotal to high school completion, the School District of Philadelphia (@PHLschools) shares how it combined internal and external research capacity to develop a 9th grade on-track metric in order to support students in graduating high school.
  • Getting On Track to Graduation: The Philadelphia Education Research Consortium (@PHLedResearch) examines the characteristics of 9th grade students who are on track and off track to graduate in Philadelphia. 67% of students were on track at the end of their 9th grade year. Of the off-track students in the sample, about 40% of the off-track students were missing just one of the five requirements, while about 20% of off-track students were missing four or five requirements, meaning they were essentially an entire year behind. Rates differed by by gender, race, and ethnicity.
