District Summary

 

What is the School Performance Framework?

The SPF (School Performance Framework) is a comprehensive system to help schools focus on strengths and areas for targeted improvement. A wide range of measures are used to calculate ratings of how well each school supports student growth and achievement, and how well it serves students and families.

What Does the Rating Mean?

Based on the percentage of overall points earned, schools receive one of five possible ratings.

Distinguished (80-100%) Schools rated Distinguished are exceeding district expectations and have very high ratings in both Academic Growth and Academic Proficiency.
 
Meets Expectations (51-79%) Schools that Meet Expectations are performing at the level that the district expects and have high ratings in either the Academic Growth or Academic Proficiency category, or the school has good ratings in both categories. Schools with this rating that have seen a decline in student performance from previous years receive increased instructional supports, such as assistance with enhanced training for staff.
 
Accredited on Watch (40-50%) Schools are rated as Accredited on Watch when they are performing below the district’s expectations. Improvement is needed on either Academic Growth or Academic Proficiency measures. Schools with this rating receive intensive instructional supports, such as enhanced, targeted training for staff, consultation on curriculum and assistance using data to increase student achievement. Accredited on Watch schools that show a lack of improvement from previous years may be subject to interventions, such as replacement of staff or changes in the academic program.

Accredited on Priority Watch (34-39%) Schools rated Accredited on Priority Watch are performing significantly below expectations and are expected to dramatically improve student achievement. Accredited on Priority Watch schools receive intensive instructional supports, such as enhanced, targeted training for staff, consultation on curriculum and assistance using data to increase student achievement. These schools are subject to interventions that may include changes to academic programs or school staff or implementation of school-turnaround strategies.
 
Accredited on Probation (up to 33%) Schools rated Accredited on Probation are performing significantly below expectations and are expected to dramatically improve student performance. Accredited on Probation schools receive intensive instructional supports, such as enhanced, targeted training for staff, consultation on curriculum and assistance using data to increase student achievement. Accredited on Probation schools require additional budget review, and the district provides additional financial resources and strategic planning supports to help the school improve. These schools are subject to interventions that may include changes to academic programs or school staff or implementation of school-turnaround strategies.
 

How Are Schools Evaluated?
