Strategic Indicator Reports

What is a Strategic Indicator Report?

Valencia's Strategic Indicator Reports provide an overview of key areas of importance to Valencia—student demographics, student progression, online students, etc.  The individual reports incorporate State of Florida accountability measures as well as Valencia-generated data to present a succinct overview of self-defined student performance and student success indicators. 

Additional Strategic Indicator Reports will be added in the future and current reports will be updated annually.
