Impact and Programs
In FY17 NEO portfolio schools provided approximately 2,416 high-quality seats compared to approximately 1,653 in FY14, the year NEO is using as a baseline. In FY17, the schools collectively achieved 39.29% of all possible positive z-scores, compared to 28% in FY14, the year NEO began using this metric.
The goals are part of the strategic plan of the organization and are held for 5-years. Collectively, the schools authorized by NEO will provide at least 3,000 high quality seats as measured by the number of "proficient" math, reading and science scores for all students enrolled by October 1st by 2020, in addition to the number of all students graduating (proficient scores in reading + proficient scores in math + proficient scores in science + number of graduates). The NEO Board will maintain at least 30% fund balance to support its schools. The percent of positive z-scores in math and reading proficiency and growth, as well as focus proficiency and focus growth, that schools authorized by NEO achieve will exceed 50% by 2020 as measured by the State Academic Portfolio Performance Data Report that MDE provides to authorizers.
