NATIONAL ASSESSMENT OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRESS BPS 2015 NAEP RESULTS OCTOBER 26, 2015 Office of Data and Accountability BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS BPS achievement in both reading and math are now on par with the national average, as measured by NAEP - also known as the nations report card. For the first time since 2003, 4th graders in BPS performed on par with students across all other school districts throughout the nation in reading. BPS has successfully closed the 14 point gap between the district and the national average in 8th grade mathematics that existed in 2003, sustaining performance on par with the nation since 2009. 2 BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS 4th grade demographic comparisons Black Students Hispanic Students English Language Learners Students with Disabilities Students from Low-Income Families Note: Demographics for Boston Public Schools, across the nation, and across all large cities in the U.S. is almost identical for 4 th grade Math as it is for Reading. * In Cleveland, all students were categorized as eligible for the National School Lunch Program ** In 2015, all Boston students were categorized as eligible for the National School Lunch Program as part of the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program. 3 BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS 8th grade demographic comparisons Black Students Hispanic Students English Language Learners Students with Disabilities Students from Low-Income Families Note: Demographics for Boston Public Schools, across the nation, and across all large cities in the U.S. is almost identical for 4 th grade Math as it is for Reading. * In Cleveland, all students were categorized as eligible for the National School Lunch Program ** In 2015, all Boston students were categorized as eligible for the National School Lunch Program as part of the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program. 4 BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS 2015 4TH AND 8TH GRADE READING RESULTS Boston Public Schools was one of only 4 urban districts* to demonstrate significant gains in 4th grade reading between 2013 and 2015. For the first time since 2003, the performance of 4th graders in BPS is comparable to the national average in reading. In 4th and 8th grade reading, BPS exceeded or performed on par with 16 of the other 20 urban districts participating in NAEP TUDA in 2015. African-American, Latino, students with disabilities, and English Language Learners in BPS outperformed both the national average and that across large cities in the U.S. in 4th reading. BPS achieved significant gains with 4th graders in the lower percentile bands (10th and 25th) between 2013 and 2015. * Note: In 2015, Boston was one of 21 urban school districts to participate in the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA). In 2003, Boston was one of only ten districts that volunteered by participate in TUDA, which now includes these cities: Albuquerque, Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore City, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Detroit, Duval County (FL), Washington D.C., Fresno, Hillsborough County (FL), Houston, Jefferson County (KY), Los Angeles, Miami-Dada, New York, Philadelphia, and San Diego. 5 BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS 4TH GRADE READING 2003 - 2015 Grade 4 Reading Average scale scores: 2003-2015 500 230 Average Scale Score 220* 220 216*

In 2015, though, Boston successfully closed the gap between the district and the national average, being the only urban district to have done so. Boston has made some of the greatest long term gains in both 4th and 8th grade mathematics of any urban district since 2003. African-American students in both 4th and 8th grade in BPS are outperforming the national average and that of large cities in mathematics. Students with disabilities are outperforming the large cities average in 8th grade math. English Language Learners are outperforming the national average in 4th grade math.

While Boston has a higher than average proportion of English Language Learners and students with disabilities and, therefore, a lower than average proportion of general education students BPSs leads the nation in terms of its performance with this population. 27 BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS 4th grade Math: National and Large City comparisons Grade 4 Mathematics Average scale scores: 2003-2015 500 250 Average Scale Score 240 237* 234* 239* 239* 241* 237 233 236 230 220 240 229* 228* 230* 231* 2005 2007 2009 237 233 240 Nation 236*** Boston 235 234 2013 2015 Large City 224* 220* 210 200 0 2003 2011 NOTE: The NAEP Mathematics scale ranges from 0 to 500. * Significantly different (P < .05) from 2015. ** Significantly different (P < .05) from Large City in 2015. *** Significantly different (P < .05) from Nation in 2015. 28 BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS
