The new School Performance Reports are designed to enhance both educator and stakeholder engagement in discussions about how well a school is preparing their students for college and careers. In particular, the new School Performance Reports seek to:
▪ Focus attention on metrics that are indicative of college and career readiness.
▪ Benchmark a school’s performance against other peer schools that are educating similar students, against statewide outcomes and against state targets, to illuminate and build upon a school’s strengths and identify areas for improvement.
▪ Improve educational outcomes for students by providing both longitudinal and growth data so that progress can be measured as part of an individual school’s efforts to engage incontinuous improvement.”
