  • Data explanation: 2% enrollment is based on New York City’s NAF enrollment (2% of all public high school students are enrolled in a NAF academy)$165 is the cost to the district per NAF enrolled student for one year0.03% is the increase in cost to the district if 2% of their students enroll in NAFOver 10% increase in students retainedIncrease in state aid varies by state, however it is usually determined by number of students, so the increase in retained students often increases state aid received at a level high enough that it more than covers the incremental cost of NAFNAF students outperform their non-NAF counterparts on virtually all measures10% increase in graduation rates Wages earned per year increase by $8,100 with high school diplomaLifetime earnings increase by $324,000 with high school diplomaEarnings increase even more dramatically with college degrees and beyond (which NAF helps students achieve)Explanation from the one-pager:The measurable benefit is evident in metrics such as students retained and graduated, which directly leads to additional funding for schools and thus is a monetary benefit they receive. The additional funding more than covers the cost of NAF. Additional benefits are much more far reaching, when you look at student performance and see that NAF increases the number of students attending school regularly, earning required credits, reaching Math and English proficiency, and achieving GPAs over 2.0. The additional wages and lifetime earnings are calculated based on the earning of a high school diploma. This benefit to students continues to increase as more NAF students attend college than their non-NAF counterparts and therefore continue achieve even higher lifetime earnings. The value of NAF continues beyond the school district and continues to society in general, as these students will contribute to the growing skilled workforce and development of the nation’s economy.

  • SPS Assets Continued • Incredible staff committed to the growth and development of all students • Partnerships with organizations like NAF, Microsoft, ConnectEDU who share our vision for better serving all students from K-12 to post-secondary. • HS & Beyond Plan is a state graduation requirement
  • The Challenge • Perception that career readiness is less important and rigorous than college readiness. • Students have limited exposure to a broad scope of career possibilities. • Far too many students move through and out of high school without a clear goal and connection to their next step.
  • Opportunities • Improve ratios of counselors and teachers to better personalize education • Integration of Common Core and Common Technical Core into applied settings • Create more authentic work site learning opportunities for students • Implement current initiatives with fidelity and build sustainability.
