The School Rating Calculation Combination of: – Achievement Index (In need of Improvement, Satisfactory, Outstanding) O-50 / 50-79.9 / 80 or higher – Attendance Rate – Participation Rate – Graduation Rate / Improvement Data @ High School – Adequate Yearly Progress status *The overall rating is based on the Achievement Index. It is reduced to the lowest rating of (Attendance, Graduation, Participation) *If Adequate Yearly Progress is Met, the Rating cannot be lower than Satisfactory
The School Rating Calculation Achievement Index (Weighted Counts) – Weighted formula: More weight is given for students who exceed vs. meets or meets growth – For Example (Exceeds is multiplied by 133 and Meets or Growth by 100) Extra weight is given for students in disadvantaged subgroups. – (This is how the State holds schools accountable to focus on these students)
The School Rating Calculation Achievement Index (Calculation) – Two year total of Reading index / 2 = (RI) – Two year total of Math index / 2 = (MI) – Added together then / 2 – ((RIp+RIc)/2 + (MIp+MIc)/2) / 2
The School Rating Calculation Attendance Rate (will lower rating) – Two year average Participation Rate (will lower rating) – One year total Graduation Rate (will lower rating) – Two year average Improvement Data @ High School Only – Increasing Performance Index by 5 or higher raises the Achievement index one category (explains how the High School received an Outstanding Rating) Adequate Yearly Progress
School Results Index Score Index Breakdown (results over time) Assessment Results (last 3 or 4 years) – Exceed and Met % compared to Comparison Schools and State
