Performance Rating of the District
State accountability ratings are based on a framework of three domains that are used to evaluate the performance of each public school campus and district in the state. This framework includes a range of indicators to calculate a score for each domain and enables a thorough assessment of campus and district effectiveness.
Accountability ratings are based on achieving a target established for each of three performance domains:
A-F letter grades are used to rate the overall performance of districts and campuses .
Due to the impact of COVID related school closures, all districts and schools in the state received a label of Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster for their 2019 – 20 and 2020 – 21 accountability ratings.
