IBO has updated two sections of its Education Indicators: Student Attendance (data on average attendance and chronic absenteeism rates in traditional public schools) & Student Achievement (standardized test scores for grades 3-8 and Regents exam performance for high school students).
In a series of charts and graphs, IBO compares enrollment changes during the first full school year impacted by the pandemic (20-21) with the second school year that just ended (21-22). We explore the different trends among the city’s traditional public schools and its charter schools.
In addition to the federal Covid-19 relief funds allocated to NYCs traditional public schools through the DOE, the city’s charter schools also received their own federal aid to help ease the impacts of the pandemic. IBO explores how much aid NYC’s roughly 300 charter schools received.
As part of our recently released Education Indicators, IBO examined what impact living in a low-income neighborhood may have on student achievement, as well as how attending a school with a higher concentration of students from low-income neighborhoods affects individual achievement.
