Broad Prize recognizes Northside ISD

An analysis of data collected for the 2010 Broad Prize found Northside Independent School District to be among the top 30 large urban school districts in the nation at educating disadvantaged students.

The traditionally disadvantaged student groups include African Americans, Hispanics and low-income students. The analysis was based on 2009 state reading and mathematics assessments. (Full story)

Does the definition of disadvantaged also include refugee students from abroad? It seems like NISD has a number from Iraq, Somalia, etc.

Here's some info from Board Prize's website:

Quote:

What data are considered to determine the finalists and the winner?


No formula is used to choose either the finalists or the winner. Members of the selection jury and review board rely on their analysis of publicly available data, their professional judgment, experience and mutual discussion. The selection jury and the review board consider the following data:
  • Performance and improvement results on mandated state tests in reading and math for elementary, middle and high schools.
  • Performance and improvement of the district compared with expected results for similar districts (based on poverty levels) in the state.
  • Performance and improvement of the district compared with results for the rest of the state.
  • Performance and improvement of the district relative to other districts in the state.
  • The reduction and magnitude of achievement gaps between ethnic groups and between low-income and non-low-income students.
  • Graduation rates calculated using the latest enrollment data available from the National Center for Education Statistics’ Common Core of Data (CCD) according to three different methods: the Average Freshman Graduation Rates (AFGR), the Urban Institute Graduation Rate (Cumulative Promotion Index or CPI), and the Manhattan Institute Graduation Rate (Greene’s Graduation Indicator or CGI).
  • Advanced Placement exam participation and passing rates.
  • SAT and ACT exam participation rates and scores.
  • Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) results.
  • District demographic data (e.g., student enrollment, income, language, special education, ethnicity)

I think the bolded bit may be where NISD's immigrant population may come into play.

Way to go Northside!
