Goals

Focused on Outcomes

Our success is gauged by measurable outcomes for children and families. Working with our evaluation teams from Wilder Research and the University of Minnesota, we will show measurable improvements over time in closing the achievement gap. Our long-term outcomes include:

  1. Increase kindergarten readiness from 28% to 80%
  2. Reading at grade-level by third grade from 16% to 70%
  3. Grade-level math proficiency by eighth grade from 29% to 70%
  4. Graduating on time, prepared for college from 51% to 80%

See our latest progress against these goals on our Results page.

Note that baseline data reflects 2011-12 data, except reading which reflects the 2012-2013 results based on the new standard test.
