Student placement and promotion decisions are based on student achievement and a careful review of student records. Decisions are made through a collaborative process involving school staff and parents.
Parents may request conferences with teachers at any time to discuss concerns regarding placement and progress related to their child's instructional program.
In the elementary grades, students are promoted from one grade to the next as they progress through the essential curriculum toward the attainment of essential goals in all subject areas.
In grades 6-8, FCPS promotes a student who passes all subjects or fails only one of the four core (major) subjects for the year. FCPS offers summer school on a limited basis to middle school students who need to repeat a core subject course. Summer offerings vary year to year depending on enrollment, teacher availability, overall program needs and resources. A student who fails all four major subjects for the year will not be promoted. Promotion recommendations for students who receive passing grades only in the major subjects will be based on careful review of student records.
High school students must show progress toward meeting state and local graduation requirements. Student promotion to the next grade level is based on the number of credits earned as of the start of the school year. The minimum number of credits that must be earned for promotion is as follows:
- Promotion to grade 10: 6 credits
- Promotion to grade 11: 12 credits
- Promotion to grade 12: 18 credits
- Students who do not have the required number of credits by the end of the school year may earn additional credit in summer school.
In some cases, the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team, which includes parents, may be responsible for promotion decisions regarding special education students.
See Regulation 500-10 .
A sign of excellence, the Honor Roll recognizes students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievements. In order to be included on the local school's academic honor roll, the student must meet certain criteria:
- The student must not have earned an I (incomplete) or below a C.
- The student must have earned no more than one C.
- Any C must be balanced by an A, course for course.
- All students, except seniors, must be enrolled for a minimum of 6 credits.
All courses are weighted equally. The principal sets up a procedure and assigns staff to establish the honor roll. The honor roll is validated and published by the principal.
The honor roll has two categories:
- First Honors--grade point average of 4.0.
- Second Honors--grade point average of 3.0-3.9.
See Regulation 400-14 .
FCPS uses the Schoology learning management system for access to elementary, middle and high school grades from any internet-connected device. After grading and entering assignments and assessments, both students and parents can view grades in the Grade Report screen. Schoology organizes data for convenient online viewing. Parents/students can sign up for timely notifications via email or text message about student progress. ★
Assignment grades will be visible for PK-12 while course averages will be available for Grades 6-12.
To learn more about Schoology and parent accounts, please visit: www.fcps.org/schoology .
Report cards are issued four times during the year to communicate students’ term grades and other classroom achievement information. Report card formats vary with the student's grade level. There are different report cards for pre-k through 5th grade. Middle schools use one format for all students in grades 6-8. High schools use one format for grades 9-12.
Report Card Examples
Interim reports may be issued between report cards and at any time throughout the year to notify students and parents about a significant decline or improvement in performance or to indicate a unique problem that may require attention. Parents or guardians must sign and return interim reports of unsatisfactory or declining performance within five days.
Important 2022-23 Dates
Dates may change due to school closings:
* Elementary report cards are issued the last day of school. ** Depending on days closed due to inclement weather. All dates may change due to school closings.
Transcripts are official records of high school credit courses taken, final grades and credits earned. Each student's cumulative weighted and unweighted Grade Point Average (GPA), class ranking and attendance are included on the transcript. A high school student's marking term GPA is included on each report card. The cumulative GPA is included on the end-of-year report card. Contact your school counselor for more information about transcripts or to request an official copy of a transcript.

2022-23 report cards issued for each Wisconsin school district
Posted: November 14, 2023 | Last updated: November 14, 2023
(WLUK) – The state Department of Public Instruction (DPI) released school district report cards for the 2022-23 school year Tuesday.
Each district gets an overall score, and each individual school gets a score.
According to DPI:
Report cards include data on multiple indicators for multiple school years across four priority areas: Achievement, Growth, Target Group Outcomes, and On-Track to Graduation. A district or school’s overall accountability score places it into one of five overall accountability ratings: Significantly Exceeds Expectations (five stars), Exceeds Expectations (four stars), Meets Expectations (three stars), Meets Few Expectations (two stars), and Fails to Meet Expectations (one star). Report cards use up to three years of data, including achievement data from 2020-21, 2021-22, and 2022-23. This is the first report card that does not include achievement data from assessments occurring prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The DPI urges caution when interpreting scores and ratings due to impacts resulting from the pandemic.

Report cards are issued in November, February, April and June. The major purpose of the report card is to report student progress to parents; however, it should be only one of many means of ongoing communication between parents and teachers.
The report card provides information about your child’s progress in the four major academic areas of language arts, math, science and social studies, as well as in art, music, physical education and technology. The strengths and weaknesses of your child’s work habits are also reported.
Students may be working above, on or below grade level as indicated on the report card.
Students working below grade level may receive grades higher than C or 2 (satisfactory). Parents and students must clearly understand that the letter grades reflect the child’s achievement on his or her instructional level.

These templates provide a structured format for documenting and reporting students’ grades, achievements, and areas for improvement. Report Card Templates offer a consistent and organized way to evaluate student learning, communicate results to parents or guardians, and facilitate meaningful conversations about students’ educational development .
Report Card Templates serve as valuable tools for assessing and reporting students’ academic performance and growth. By utilizing these templates, educational institutions can standardize the reporting process, maintain consistency across grade levels , and ensure effective communication with parents or guardians. The structured format of Report Card Templates facilitates meaningful discussions about students’ progress, identifies areas for further support or enrichment, and promotes collaboration between teachers, students, and parents to support student success . These templates can be customized to align with specific grading systems, educational standards, and institutional requirements.
Characteristics of report card
A report card is a document that summarizes a student’s academic performance over a given period of time, typically a semester or a school year. The purpose of a report card is to provide students, parents, and teachers with an overview of a student’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as areas where improvement is needed. A typical report card includes the following features:
Grades: The most important aspect of a report card is the student’s grades. These are usually represented by letters or numbers, such as A, B, C, D, and F, or by a percentage or numerical scale. Grades are usually given for each subject or class the student is taking, and provide an overall measure of the student’s academic performance in that particular subject.
Attendance: Report cards often include information on a student’s attendance record. This can include the number of days absent or tardy, as well as any excused or unexcused absences. Attendance is important because it can be an indicator of a student’s overall engagement and commitment to their education.
Comments or Feedback: Many report cards include comments or feedback from teachers. These can provide valuable insights into a student’s performance and can help parents and students understand what areas need improvement. Comments can also highlight a student’s strengths and achievements.
Standards-Based Grading: A growing number of schools are moving towards standards-based grading. This method of grading focuses on the specific knowledge and skills that students are expected to learn in each subject, rather than on the student’s overall performance. Standards-based report cards show students’ level of proficiency in each standard and give a clear picture of student’s understanding and knowledge.
Progress Reports: Some report cards include progress reports, which provide more detailed information about a student’s performance over a specific period of time, such as a quarter or trimester. Progress reports can help parents and teachers identify areas where a student may be struggling or excelling and make adjustments as necessary.
Goals and Objectives: Report cards may also include information about a student’s progress towards meeting specific goals or objectives. This can include information about academic or behavioral goals that have been set for the student, as well as any interventions or support services that have been put in place to help the student achieve these goals.
Additional Information: Report cards may also include additional information, such as the student’s enrollment status, grade level, or any special programs or services the student is receiving.
Why is the report card important?
The report card is an important tool for both students and parents to track a student’s academic progress and identify areas for improvement. Report cards provide a clear and concise summary of a student’s performance in each subject, making it easy for parents and students to see where they are excelling and where they may be struggling. This information can be used to set realistic and achievable goals for the student, as well as to identify any interventions or support services that may be needed to help the student achieve these goals.
One of the most important aspects of a report card is the grades. These grades provide an overall measure of the student’s academic performance in each subject, and can be used to identify areas where the student may need extra help or support. For example, if a student is consistently receiving low grades in math, it may be an indication that they are struggling with the material and may need additional help in that area.
Attendance is also an important aspect of a report card, as it can be an indicator of a student’s overall engagement and commitment to their education. If a student has a high number of absences or tardies, it may be an indication that they are not fully engaged in their education and may need additional support or interventions to help them stay on track.
How does the school report beneficial?
The school report card helps in several ways:
Identifying areas of strength and weakness : The report card provides a clear and concise summary of a student’s performance in each subject, making it easy for parents and students to see where they are excelling and where they may be struggling. This information can be used to set realistic and achievable goals for the student and identify areas that need extra help or support.
Tracking progress: Report cards are usually issued at regular intervals , such as at the end of each semester or school year. By comparing report cards from different periods, parents and students can track a student’s progress over time, and see how the student is improving or not.
Communicating with teachers: Report cards often include comments or feedback from teachers. These comments provide valuable insights into a student’s performance, and can help parents and students understand what areas need improvement. This can also be an opportunity for parents to communicate with teachers and discuss their child’s performance.
Identifying potential issues: Report cards can also help identify potential issues, such as a high number of absences or tardies, low grades in certain subjects, or poor performance in a specific area. This information can be used to take early action to address the issues, rather than waiting until they become more serious.
Identifying Special Needs: Report cards can also help identify students who may need special services or interventions. If a student is consistently receiving low grades, or has a high number of absences or tardies, this may be an indication that they need additional support or interventions to help them stay on track.
Making informed decisions: Report cards can be used by parents and students to make informed decisions about a student’s education. For example, if a student is consistently receiving low grades in a certain subject, parents may decide to enroll the student in a tutoring program or seek additional help from a teacher.
In conclusion, school report cards are an important tool that helps in measuring students’ academic progress, identifying areas of strength and weakness, tracking progress, communicating with teachers, identifying potential issues and special needs and making informed decisions about a student’s education.
Process of Report Card ( Detailed Steps)
The report card process is a multi-step process that involves several key players, including teachers, administrators, and parents. The following is a general overview of the steps involved in the report card process:
Data collection: The first step in the report card process is collecting data on a student’s academic performance. This data is typically collected by teachers, who use a variety of assessment methods, such as tests, quizzes, homework assignments, and observations, to evaluate a student’s understanding and knowledge of the material.
Data entry: Once the data has been collected, it is then entered into a system, typically an online grade book or a spreadsheet, by the teacher. This step is important because it ensures that the data is accurate and easily accessible to all stakeholders.
Data analysis: After the data has been entered, teachers will analyze the data to determine a student’s overall performance and identify areas of strength and weakness. They will also use the data to determine the student’s grades.
Report card preparation : Once the data has been analyzed, the report card is prepared. This step typically involves the use of a template, which is filled in with the student’s grades and other relevant information, such as attendance, comments, and additional information.
Report card review: Before the report card is finalized, it is reviewed by the teacher, as well as by administrators, such as the principal or department head, to ensure that the information is accurate and complete.
Parent-teacher conference: After the report card is reviewed and finalized, a parent-teacher conference is held, where the report card is discussed with the parents. This is an opportunity for parents to ask questions, discuss their child’s performance, and talk about any concerns or issues.
Distribution: Once the report card has been reviewed, the report card is distributed to the parents and students. This is usually done by sending the report card home with the student or by mailing it to the parents.
Follow-up: After the report card has been distributed, the school may follow-up with parents and students to ensure that they understand the report card and to answer any questions they may have. This step is also important for tracking the student’s progress and making any necessary adjustments to the student’s education.
How often are report cards issued?
Report cards are typically issued on a regular schedule, such as every quarter or semester. The frequency of report cards may vary depending on the school or district.
Who receives a report card?
Report cards are typically given to students and their parents or guardians.
What information is included on a report card?
A report card typically includes a student’s grades for individual subjects, as well as information about their attendance and behavior. Some report cards may also include comments from teachers.
What do the grades on a report card mean?
The grades on a report card typically represent a student’s level of understanding and mastery of the material covered in a particular class or subject. Grading systems vary by school or district, but often use letters (A, B, C, etc.) or numbers (4.0, 3.0, 2.0, etc.) to indicate a student’s performance.
How can I improve my grades on a report card?
To improve your grades on a report card, you can try to spend more time studying and reviewing material, ask your teacher for help or extra practice, and make sure you fully understand the material before moving on. Additionally, you can try to stay organized and manage your time effectively, and participate actively in class.
What should I do if I have a concern about my child’s report card?
If you have a concern about your child’s report card, you should first speak with your child’s teacher. They can provide more information about your child’s performance and give you specific strategies to help your child improve. If your concern is not addressed after speaking with the teacher, you may want to schedule a meeting with the school’s principal or counselor for additional support.
How can parents use report cards to support their child’s education?
Parents can use report cards to monitor their child’s progress in school, identify areas where their child may need extra help, and work with teachers and school staff to provide support and resources. They should also use report cards as an opportunity to communicate with their child about their performance, and to set goals and work together to improve.
Can report cards be used to evaluate a teacher’s performance?
Report cards are primarily used to evaluate a student’s performance, but they can also provide information about a teacher’s effectiveness. For example, if a large number of students in a teacher’s class are not performing well, it may indicate that the teacher is not providing appropriate instruction or support. However, report cards should not be the sole factor used to evaluate a teacher’s performance, as other factors such as classroom observation and student feedback should also be taken into account.
Are report cards available online?
Many schools now offer online report cards, which can be accessed by parents and students via a secure website. This allows for easy access to report cards and also make it easy for parents to keep track of their child’s progress throughout the school year.

Passing at home, failing abroad: Grading Mike Johnson's first month as speaker
- In late October, House Republicans settled on a little-known congressman as their next leader.
- Mike Johnson, who succeeded Rep. Kevin McCarthy, has now led the chamber for just under a month.
- Business Insider drafted a report card for his performance thus far.
Mike Johnson has been the speaker of the House for just under a month now following a testy race to succeed ousted former Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
As Business Insider detailed a day before the House promoted Johnson to the role, a mountain of responsibilities quickly piled up on the vacant speaker's desk as Republicans deliberated for weeks before coming to an agreement on Johnson.
Nearly a month later — and with about five weeks until the new year — here's a report card to assess how successful the newly crowned speaker has been thus far.
Government funding: Pass (for now)
In October, McCarthy was ousted from leadership after passing bipartisan legislation to temporarily fund the government via a "clean" continuing resolution.
More than a month later, Johnson narrowly avoided a government shutdown and passed nearly the same legislation , but with a catch: The plan fully funds the government through the end of the year, but following that, various sectors of the government face the possibility of shutting down if Congress can't come together to prolong its funding.
Johnson's so-called "laddered" approach has been heavily criticized by congressional Democrats, Republicans, and even the White House, who called it an "unserious proposal."
Nevertheless, it's the plan Johnson pushed, Congress approved, and Biden enacted. The government's funded — for now — but there's no guarantee it'll remain that way much longer.
Wartime/humanitarian funding for the Israel-Gaza conflict: Fail
Mere days after McCarthy's sudden ouster, Hamas fighters launched a surprise terror attack on Israel, killing more than 1,000 civilians. Since then, Israel's military response has killed more than 12,000 Palestinians.
In late October, Biden asked Congress for $14.3 billion to send to Israel's wartime effort in addition to billions in humanitarian assistance to Gaza.
Johnson and House Republicans acquiesced to the $14.3 billion, however, the plan they pushed funds the cash infusion by cutting billions in funding for the Internal Revenue Service the agency received from the Inflation Reduction Act.
Though the bill did pass in the House, it entered the Democratic-led Senate dead on arrival, especially after the White House promised to veto it if brought to Biden's desk.
Recent reports have predicted that congressional leaders still have hopes of passing a bill giving supplementary aid to Israel, but there don't appear to be many concrete details to the plan as of yet.
Additional wartime funds to Ukraine: Fail
The conflict in the Middle East isn't the only wartime effort the US government is publicly looking to fund.
Over the course of more than a year, the US has already sent more than $75 billion in aid to Ukraine's ongoing fight against Russia's invading forces. The White House also asked Congress to approve $61.4 billion more for Ukraine, but Johnson has yet to bring any piece of legislation up for a vote regarding potential Ukrainian funding.
Several Republicans in Congress have said they'll only consider supporting any additional funding to Ukraine if it's coupled with an influx of funds to fortify the US-Mexico border, further complicating the process.
Republican Rep. Michael McCaul, who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee, recently told The Hill he thinks the Senate will pass a bill packaging funding for the conflicts in Ukraine and Israel, US border security, as well as Taiwan.
"I think we're going to have a Ukraine-border bill," McCaul said. "And then the Senate, after Thanksgiving, will probably pass their Ukraine-Israel-border-Taiwan bill. And that will come over to us, and the Speaker's going to have to make a decision."
Farm bill: Pass (for now)
The laddered continuing resolution recently passed by Congress didn't just temporarily fund the government: it also included a one-year extension to the deal passed by Congress in 2018.
The 2018 farm bill was notably enacted prior to the pandemic and subsequent spike in inflation, both of which have had tremendous impacts on the industry at large.
The president of the American Farm Bureau Federation recently told the Texas Farm Bureau that while extending the 2018 bill is a start, a new one is needed by early 2024 to directly "reflect today's realities."
Section 702: Fail
Without any congressional intervention, Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act is set to expire by the end of the year. Initially established in 2008, Section 702 allows the US government to covertly surveil foreigners outside the country "who are expected to possess, receive, or communicate foreign intelligence information."
According to the Associated Press , information obtained by the federal government authorized by Section 702 compiles nearly 60% of the president's daily briefing.
A bipartisan coalition of members of Congress introduced the "Government Surveillance Reform Act" in early November, which would in part reauthorize Section 702 for four more years, though it also included several proposed reforms to the extent the intelligence community can surveil Americans which the White House has already said is a nonstarter.
Johnson has a well-documented history criticizing the intelligence-gathering statute. In January, he sent a letter alongside GOP Rep. Jim Jordan to the director of the FBI alleging "apparent widespread violations of privacy rules" committed by the intelligence community with the permission of the statute.
With just over a month left until the authorization expires, though, Johnson's been mum on the topic since becoming speaker.
Fundraising: To be determined
Johnson, who's been in Congress since 2017, had very little experience fundraising before suddenly being thrust to the top of the presidential line of succession. In fact, he'd never raised more than $1.3 million in any single one of his elections.
So after surprisingly becoming speaker, a position that requires him to be a leading fundraiser for his party, it was unclear how Johnson would take to the additional responsibility.
Johnson's since hired McCarthy's former "fundraising guru" in addition to a slew of other advisors to support him in his new role. He also recently launched a new joint fundraising committee aimed at backing GOP House candidates, Grow the Majority.
As of late November, though it's unclear just how much Johnson's raised just yet.
Watch: Speaker of the House finally elected, ending three weeks of leaderless chaos

State of Climate Action 2023
The State of Climate Action 2023 provides the world’s most comprehensive roadmap of how to close the gap in climate action across sectors to limit global warming to 1.5°C. It finds that recent progress toward 1.5°C-aligned targets isn’t happening at the pace and scale necessary and highlights where action must urgently accelerate this decade to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, scale up carbon removal and increase climate finance.

State of Climate Action
Methodology underpinning the state of climate action series: 2023 update.
- Methodology Underpinning the State of Climate Action Series
- State of Climate Action 2022
- State of Climate Action 2021: Systems Transformations Required to Limit Global Warming to 1.5°C
- State of Climate Action: Assessing Progress toward 2030 and 2050
Published ahead of the final phase of the Global Stocktake, the State of Climate Action 2023 offers a roadmap that the world can follow to avoid increasingly dangerous and irreversible climate impacts, while minimizing harms to biodiversity and food security. It translates the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C temperature limit into 2030 and 2050 targets across sectors that account for roughly 85% of global GHG emissions — power, buildings, industry, transport, forests and land, food and agriculture — as well as those focused on the scale-up of technological carbon removal and climate finance. The report then assesses collective global progress and highlights where action must urgently accelerate this decade to limit warming to 1.5°C.
The State of Climate Action 2023 finds that global efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C are failing across the board, with recent progress made on every indicator — except electric passenger car sales — lagging significantly behind the pace and scale that is necessary to address the climate crisis.
This year’s State of Climate Action finds that progress made in closing the global gap in climate action remains woefully inadequate — 41 of 42 indicators assessed are not on track to achieve their 2030 targets. Progress for more than half of these indicators remains well off track, such that recent efforts must accelerate at least twofold this decade. Worse still, another six indicators are heading in the wrong direction entirely.
Within this set of laggards, efforts to end public financing for fossil fuels, dramatically reduce deforestation and expand carbon pricing systems experienced the most significant setbacks to progress in a single year, relative to recent trends. In 2021, for example, public financing for fossil fuels increased sharply, with government subsidies, specifically, nearly doubling from 2020 to reach the highest levels seen in almost a decade. And in 2022, deforestation increased slightly to 5.8 million hectares (Mha) worldwide, losing an area of forests greater than the size of Croatia in a single year.
But amid such bad news, several bright spots underscore the possibility of rapid change. Over the past five years, the share of electric vehicles in passenger car sales has grown exponentially at an average annual rate of 65% — up from 1.6% of sales in 2018 to 10% of sales in 2022. For the first time in this report series, such progress puts this indicator on track for 2030.
Global efforts are heading in the right direction at a promising, albeit still insufficient, pace for another six indicators, and with the right support, some could soon experience exponential changes. And among all indicators heading in the right direction, those focused on increasing mandatory corporate climate risk disclosure, sales of electric trucks and the share of EVs in the passenger car fleet saw the most significant gains in a single year, relative to recent trends.
Still, an enormous acceleration in effort will be required across all sectors to get on track for 2030. For example, the world needs to:
- Dramatically increase growth in solar and wind power. The share of these two technologies in electricity generation has grown by an annual average of 14 percent in recent years, but this needs to reach 24 percent to get on track for 2030.
- Phase out coal in electricity generation seven times faster than current rates. This is equivalent to retiring roughly 240 average-sized coal-fired power plants each year through 2030. Though continued build-out of coal-fired power will increase the number of plants that need to be shuttered in the coming years.
- Expand the coverage of rapid transit infrastructure six times faster. This is equivalent to constructing public transit systems roughly three times the size of New York City’s network of subway rails, bus lanes and light-rail tracks each year throughout this decade.
- The annual rate of deforestation — equivalent to deforesting 15 football (soccer) fields per minute in 2022 — needs to be reduced four times faster over this decade.
- Shift to healthier, more sustainable diets eight times faster by lowering per capita consumption of meat from cows, goats and sheep to approximately two servings per week or less across high-consuming regions (the Americas, Europe and Oceania) by 2030. This shift does not require reducing consumption for populations who already consume below this target level, especially in low-income countries where modest increases in consumption can boost nutrition.

Thousands of HSBC customers in UK unable to access online banking services
Consumers report problems using bank’s app on one of the busiest shopping days of year, Black Friday
Thousands of HSBC customers reported they were unable to access its online and mobile banking services on one of the busiest online shopping days of the year – Black Friday .
More than 4,000 customers said they could not access their accounts via the HSBC app on Friday, according to Downdetector, which tracks and collates website outages and complaints.
At 11pm on Friday, the bank announced on X that its “online and mobile banking services are getting back up and running for all our customers”.
It added: “Once again we’re really sorry, and understand this was deeply frustrating for many of our customers. We’ll continue to work behind the scenes to ensure a full recovery.”
Earlier, the bank said the disruption was “the result of an internal system issue” and that services via its apps and online had been affected, as well as online card purchases.
With 24 November being the last Friday of the month, it will also be payday for some customers. One X user posted in response to HSBC UK’s message: “Literally the worst timing ever. People got paid and have bills to pay.”
Another wrote: “Got to move some money so I can buy some Black Friday purchases (that I don’t need). Maybe it’s a sign!”
Users accessing the HSBC mobile app were being shown a message on Friday morning saying the bank was “performing a system upgrade to bring you a better banking experience”.
The disruption did not affect First Direct or M&S Bank customers.
after newsletter promotion
HSBC, which has about 15 million customers in the UK, has previously announced that it would close a total of 114 physical branches across the country this year.
By the end of this year, the high street bank, which said the closures were in part down to customers making the shift to online banking, will have 327 branches nationwide – down from 590 in 2021.

New performance report cards go live on each indiana school’s website, replacing a-f grades, casey smith - indiana capital chronicle.
A school performance report for Jeffersonville High School, located in southern Indiana’s Greater Clark County Schools district, posted on the school’s website. As of Oct. 15, most Indiana schools are required to post the report cards online.
To increase transparency around Indiana students’ education performance, new report cards issued by the state education department are now required to be posted on nearly every Hoosier school’s website.
Beginning Oct. 15, each public and state-accredited non-public school must post online a performance report from the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) that shows how its students are doing on academic and other measures.
The report cards replace the state’s previous accountability system in which the state assigned A through F grades to measure a school’s quality.
School grades have been effectively suspended since 2018, when Indiana shifted from ISTEP to a new state standardized test and later grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic.
State officials maintain that the new school performance reports will provide additional transparency around key data points, like test results, attendance rates and career readiness.
Indiana Secretary of Education Katie Jenner said she also hopes the move will help parents, families and communities to better understand what’s happening in their schools.
What’s in the reports
Information included in the performance reports covers the 2022-23 and 2023-24 academic years and varies by the grade levels served by a school.
For example, reports for elementary schools — which are defined as those serving grades K-8 — will include pass rates for the 3rd grade literacy test, known as IREAD-3, along with pass rates for the statewide ILEARN exam, chronic absenteeism rates, and per-student funding.
High school report cards will also highlight per-student funding, along with average composite SAT scores, as well as graduation and non-waiver graduation rates. Additionally, secondary school performance reports will provide the percentage of students who enrolled in and passed any of the following: an Advanced Placement exam, International Baccalaureate exam, dual credit course, or Cambridge International exam.
All schools are also required to compare their data to those serving similar grade bands. Schools with high rates of students who receive free or reduced lunch additionally provide a comparison of their metrics to schools with a similar population.
Much of the data for the new report cards is already available to the public, though, and was drawn from the Indiana Graduates Prepared to Succeed (GPS) dashboard , which the state released earlier this year.
State lawmakers required the performance reports earlier this year in House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1591.
Even so, the A-F school grades are still required in the state code. Under the new law, however, the state education department will issue “null” grades for each school for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 school years, as it has since 2018.
Under the new law, IDOE is also charged with providing the Indiana General Assembly with future accountability recommendations that can be used in subsequent years. Those are due to state lawmakers by Dec. 1, 2024.
What the data shows — and what the state is doing
Hundreds of schools across the state already have performance reports embedded on their websites, according to the IDOE. It’s not yet clear whether any schools are not complying with the new requirement.
The performance reports come amid a statewide push to help Hoosier students recover from the academic impacts of the pandemic and ensure new high school graduates are more adequately prepared to enter the workforce .
That includes vigorous efforts to improve literacy among the state’s youngest students , largely through the mandatory adoption of science of reading instruction .
Earlier this year, the state board of education additionally reduced the number of Indiana academic standards and approved a revision of the ILEARN assessment . The goal is to make it easier for teachers to craft individualized lesson plans and allow schools more flexibility in administering the standardized exams.
State leaders are also rethinking efforts to get kids into the classroom every day. New state data released earlier this month showed about 40% of Hoosier students missed 10 or more school days last year, and nearly one in five were “chronically absent,” meaning they missed at least 18 days.
More broadly, Jenner has maintained that Indiana’s prior school accountability measures are outdated and need to be updated.
