Our Goals

Partners in LAUNCH Flagstaff commit to build cross-sector relationships and use a data-driven collective impact framework to improve a core set of academic outcomes. We accept that it is our responsibility as adult citizens to provide the resources and devote the effort necessary for that potential to be realized.

Improving the following educational outcomes forms the foundation for the shared agenda of the LAUNCH Flagstaff partners.

Launch Flagstaff Goals

With this common agenda, our partnership makes strategic decisions based on local dis-aggregated data that validates successful practices and reveals areas of need. This information drives the analysis which determines the collaborative strategic actions the Partnership will champion and support to increase our impact. This data also serves both as a measure of our progress and a means for continuous improvement.

The data shows that…

Kindergarten Readiness:  The data shows that nearly half of our five-year olds enter kindergarten without basic foundational skills needed for best social and academic growth; therefore, communitywide data will reflect evidence of continuous improvement annually in the percentage of children entering kindergarten ready for school – socially, behaviorally and academically.

Third-Grade Reading Proficiency:  The data shows that approximately 73% of third-graders are performing at grade level in reading; therefore, communitywide data will reflect evidence of continuous improvement annually in the percentage of students reading on grade level by the end of third grade.

Eighth-Grade Math Proficiency:  The data shows that 56% of eighth graders are performing at grade level in math; therefore, communitywide data will reflect evidence of continuous improvement annually in the percentage of eighth-grade students performing at grade level in math.

High School Graduation:  The data shows that 85% of ninth-graders graduate high school in four years; therefore, communitywide data will reflect evidence of continuous improvement annually in the percentage of students graduating from high school.

Enrollment onto a Post-Secondary Career Path:  The data shows that only 55% of high school graduates in Flagstaff enroll in some form of post-secondary education; therefore, communitywide data will reflect evidence of continuous improvement annually in the percentage of high school graduates who enter a post-secondary career path including, but not limited to, a two or four-year degree program, military or civic service, training or apprenticeship leading to certification in a desired field.
