Purpose of the Outcomes-Based Measures
All Early College High Schools are required to meet Outcomes-Based Measures (OBMs) on data indicators related to access, attainment, and achievement.
OBMs will phase in for opening Provisional ECHSs as the entering cohort of 9th graders advance through graduation. Upon the completion of the Provisional period, a campus must meet the state’s Designated OBM criteria. OBMs will be phased in for all ECHSs through 2021-22. OBM will be used to determine campus designation status for 2022-23, and thereafter.
Provisional Early College High School
Provisional Early Colleges are new ECHSs that demonstrate they can implement all design elements for each benchmark and meet the Provisional Early College OBMs. For public purposes, campuses are identified as Early College.
Early College High School

Outcomes-Based Measures (OBMs): Distinctions
Campuses may receive individual Distinctions in Access, Attainment, and Achievement for exemplar service to ECHS students.
