Thirteen public schools that enroll a large share of the District of Columbia’s at-risk students are closing the achievement gap at a rate 10 times faster than other schools in the city and nationally. For their growth in academic performance, and for the instructional, analytical and cultural practices these schools employ to achieve such progress, the education nonprofit EmpowerK12 has named these campuses its 2019 Bold Improvement Schools.

Our newest DC educational dashboard utilizes recently released additional student group outcomes data on report card metrics. OSSE published results for more granular student groups like "Not At-Risk Students without Disabilities" and "Black/African-American Males" in a raw file. We applied our interactive data warehousing and dashboarding expertise to let the public robustly explore the new information.
Learn more about the dashboard in our blog post about the Equity Tool.
