ERS is partnering with The School District of Palm Beach County to map resource use and to support human capital strategy, strategic school design, help surface areas to reinvest to support their under-performing and growing English Language Learner (ELL) population.
Palm Beach has worked hard to be where it is today, with its students generally outperforming the state average in elementary and middle school, and high schoolers surpassing the state’s average graduation rates. Like many urban school districts, however, Palm Beach still faces several challenges in educating its approximately 177,000 students. One challenge the district is focused on is closing their ELL performance gap (a gap that is larger than their peers in Florida) while experiencing an increase in their ELL population. But this is also at a unique moment of opportunity: under the new Superintendent Robert Avossa, Palm Beach is poised to take stock of where they currently are and how they can best move forward on their overall path from good to great.
