Differentiated Accountability for Districts and Community Schools

Districts and schools receive a percent ranking on four report card measures - Achievement, Gap Closing, Progress and Graduation Rate. All four are combined into overall percent ranking. Districts and schools receive targeted supports and interventions that best match the academic reason in their underperformance. Districts and schools in the lowest 5 percent receive the highest state support. The next 10 percent receive medium state support, followed by the next 20 percent that receives the lowest support.
