Celerity Schools Singled Out For Top Academic Gains
According to the LA School Report analysis of the data in a new study by the Stanford-based Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) on charter management organizations, Celerity Educational Group charter network was number one in learning gains. The CREDO study examined 240 charter management organizations in 26 states, obtaining data from 3.7 million students.
According to the report, students in 13 of the largest Los Angeles charter school networks gained an average of 50 additional days of learning in math and 24 days in reading compared to other Los Angeles public school students.
Celerity’s students made the most math gains — equivalent to 120 additional days of learning — and second in reading gains — equivalent to 60 extra days of learning.
The CREDO study was established to improve empirical evidence about education reform and student performance at the primary and secondary levels. CREDO’s valuable insight helps educators and policymakers strengthen their focus on the results from innovative programs, curricula, policies and accountability practices.
“We are extremely proud of our schools and this recognition,” said Nadia Shaiq, Chief Academic Officer. “The data clearly demonstrates that great things are happening at Celerity schools — a testament to our outstanding students and dedicated teachers.”
