North Carolina School Report Cards to be Released

ncrcThe North Carolina School Report Cards have been produced annually since 2001 to provide more detailed information about student performance and other key data such as class size, school safety and teacher qualifications. Legislation (G.S. §115C-83.15) passed by the General Assembly in 2013 now requires the inclusion of School Performance Grades on these Report Cards.

When the redesigned NC School Report Cards website launches during the State Board of Education meeting on Feb. 5, every traditional and public charter school in the state will receive an A-F letter grade. The School Performance Grades will be based 80 percent on the school’s achievement score (calculated using a composite method based on the sum of points earned by a school on all of the indicators measured for that school), and 20 percent on students’ academic growth (compares the actual performance of the school’s students to their expected performance based on their prior testing performance).

Beginning in the 2015-16 school year, the NC School Report Cards will be released in September and will incorporate both the school performance grades and state READY accountability results. For more information, visit the Accountability Division website.

Dr. Stegall will be sharing more information about our district and school report cards upon their release.
