2013 State Report Cards Released
The new school district and school report cards for 2013 have just been released by the state.
As we told you back in the spring, Illinois changed the way it scores the annual state assessment test (ISAT) making it much more difficult for students to meet or exceed state standards. As expected, a lower percentage of District 153 students cleared that new higher bar. Still, a slightly higher percentage of our students are scoring above the state average even under the new scoring method. It's important to note that If the same cut scores were used last year to compute the number of kids performing at the "meet" or "exceeds" levels, our results would have been very similar to previous years.
There are two ways to obtain information:
- “At A Glance” report cards that contains a two-page summary of data
- An online report card with an interactive tool for exploring school performance data in more depth. Users can search by school or district name
