Schools may choose to describe up to two additional pieces of information about how their school is supporting students. These self-reported indicators are not factored into school accountability calculations but provide the opportunity for schools to highlight successful programs or practices in addition to the indicators included in school accountability.
EQUITABLE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
Balanced participation by demographic subgroups
Across Utah, many districts have participation gaps for students who are enrolled in signature programs. This means certain groups (racial minorities, economically disadvantaged, etc.) are not well represented in signature programs and honors classes. At OPA, we encourage students to take the most advanced coursework they wish to, and we strive to support each student. We are proud to say that all of our student demographics are well represented within our programs, as demonstrated by the information below. See www.ogdenprep.org for additional information. Subgroup: Hispanic Whole School: 71% AVID: 82% Honors/Advanced Coursework: 62% Subgroup: Economically Disadvantaged Whole School: 66% AVID: 65% Honors/Advanced Coursework: 50% Subgroup: Students with Disabilities Whole School: 12% AVID: 5% Honors/Advanced Coursework: 4% English Learners Whole School: 22% AVID: 33% Honors/Advanced Coursework: 15%

Our goal for all our 9th graders is to leave OPA “on track” for graduation. At the end of the school year, only 23% were still at risk and 77% of our 9th graders were on track for graduation.
