Reviewing the CEP Goals for 2018-2019

-We read the goals aloud and asked clarifying questions

-We discussed 1 goal as a group:


Goal #2 By June 2019, there will be a 5% increase in the number (from 48% to 53%) of our students that graduate from our high school and enroll in college or another post-secondary program within 6 months.
-Need to know exactly what the data is- why-Get some students to follow peers when leave school 
-Document data and the reasons why they didn't go to post secondary school -Don't know what the disconnect it -- must find out.
-Reasons- could be that team wasn't in touch/Don't necessarily respond -Use under matching- pilot (tiers line up better) 
-Issue is that if they are going to CUNY is there someone that is going to be following them 
-If they don't declare major- are they getting the right classes?
-2 year course vs 4 year course 
-Once get in the door have to stay in the door-  important point and when why I like CUNY- if your out of town it is different 
-Carla- pros and cons to CUNY- when goal setting have mindset
