In summer 2021, the School District of Philadelphia (SDP) offered a series of virtual and in person summer programs for students who had completed grades PreK-12. In response to students experiencing digital and hybrid learning from March 2020 – June 2021, summer 2021 programming offerings were expanded from previous summers. Nearly 16,000 students enrolled in summer programming, over 12,000 students attended a program for at least one day, and nearly 6,000 students attended at least one program for 75% or more of days.
District-level report on findings from a 2020 survey of exiting seniors about whether they plan to obtain additional education, secure employment, or pursue other activities after graduation.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education requires each district to survey exiting seniors about their intentions after high school—specifically, whether students plan to obtain additional education, secure employment, or pursue other activities. This graduate follow-up survey asked Career and Technical Education (CTE) students from the class of 2020 about their experiences after graduation.
This brief summarizes findings from a study of the “summer melt” rates of the cohort of college-intending 2020 School District of Philadelphia (SDP) seniors.
This brief explores patterns in the SDP 2019-20 four-year high school graduation rate by sector (District, Charter, and Alternative), Network, Admission type, and student demographics. This brief also includes an analysis of changes in graduation rates for student cohorts with target four-year graduation years of 2018-19 and 2019-20, as well as an examination of potential contributing factors to increased graduation rates from 2018-19 to 2019-20.
This brief examines “summer melt” rates (or the rates at which students who said they intended to pursue post-secondary education as seniors did not enroll in college the following fall) among student subgroups in the SDP senior classes of 2017, 2018, and 2019.

SDP’s Ninth Grade On-Track metric is an established and validated tool for early identification of students who are not likely to graduate on time. This slide deck summarizes findings found in From Ninth Grade On-Track to College Matriculation: The Path of the 2015-16 SDP Ninth-Grade Cohort, which compared matriculation outcomes across demographic and educational characteristics (gender, race/ethnicity, IEP status, EL status, economic disadvantage, and GPA).
