Taking Action for DPS Students

Updated: Dec 7, 2023

The famous quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin reads, "'If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail." Planning is a critical first step to develop a clear roadmap for stronger schools and student success.

That is why Learn to Earn Dayton was pleased to support Dayton Public Schools in the creation of an academic action plan for student success.

The plan focuses on benchmarks toward student success, including regular attendance, third grade reading, eighth grade math, disciplinary actions, and college and career readiness, as well as developing a positive culture and climate where students and staff feel safe and supported.

The unveiling of the plan was featured in the Dayton Daily News, and Dr. David Lawrence shared details in the video below. Get additional details by viewing a recent school board meeting where Associate Superintendent Lisa Minor and Chief Academic Officer Akisha Shehee presented the plan to the board.

Learn to Earn Dayton collects, analyzes, and reports on educational data for the region, disaggregated as needed for districts/communities. We will continue to support this effort in leveraging data to track progress toward the targeted benchmarks as the community comes together in support of student success.
