TRIO Wolf Creek - Create Different and Innovative Forms of Measuring Outcomes
Wolf Creek Online High School focuses on telling the story of our unique population of students through the measurement of a modified graduation rate. As a charter school with a rolling enrollment, we find students come to us behind in credits or at unique points in their graduation journey. Wolf Creek is passionate about serving each individual student at their own pace, however, we also know that one accountability measure is graduation rates. Therefore, we have developed a method to analyze students enrolled at Wolf Creek on track in credits their senior year to determine impacts our curriculum has on a student's ability to graduate. This modified graduation rate puts the emphasis on what work is being accomplished while enrolled at Wolf Creek and focuses on success measures. This modified graduation rate also inspires staff to know they're making a difference for these students.
