Graduation Outcomes of Students who Entered New York City Public Schools in Grade 5 or 6 as English Language Learners

Full Description: 

This study describes high school graduation outcomes for students who entered New York City schools in grade 5 or 6 as English learner students. It uses longitudinal administrative data from New York City public schools for 2003/04 through 2012/13 to analyze high school graduation outcomes for students who entered New York City schools in grade 5 or 6 in 2003/04 as English learner students. Approximately 64 percent of students in these cohorts graduated from high school on time (within four years of entering grade 9), and an additional 15 percent graduated within six years of entering grade 9. Students in the two cohorts earned a variety of diploma types within six years, including the standard Regents diploma (41 percent), the less rigorous Local diploma (19 percent), and the more rigorous Advanced Regents diploma (19 percent).
