Agenda Item Summary: Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) administered the Search Institute’s Developmental Assets Survey during spring 2019 to students in grades 8, 10, and 12. Overall, results showed growth (> 2 percentage points) from the 2010 administration in 53% of assets, relative stability (+/- 2 percentage points) in 28% of assets, and decline in 20% of assets. ACPS will work collaboratively with the CYFCC in how these data can inform the upcoming strategic planning processes for both ACPS and CYFCC to increase outcomes for the youth of Alexandria City.
Background: In partnership with the Children, Youth, and Families Collaborative Commission (CYFCC), Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) administered the Search Institute’s Developmental Assets Survey during spring 2019 to students in grades 8, 10, and 12 (n = 1,786). The survey is administered once every three years to ACPS students with results being used to inform the efforts of city agencies, local non-profits, community leaders, and schools in ensuring the health and wellbeing of tomorrow’s citizenry.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends the School Board review the 2018-2019 Search Institute Developmental Assets Survey results and historical trends for an understanding of ACPS student health and well-being.
