13. Data gathering and evaluation - promising practices in Alternative Education

Data gathering and evaluation efforts are ongoing and transparent and provide students, parents, educators, and the community information to assess the effectiveness of the Alternative Education program/school. Data may include the program/school enrollment, average daily attendance, number of referrals, number of students on the waitlist, the number and percentage of students disaggregated by race/ethnicity, limited English proficient status, disability, and low-income status. Program data should also be shared on suspensions, grade retentions, dropping out, transfers back to the school of origin, transfers to another school, and performance/scores on the MCAS.
