District and School Data
Note: The release of the 2015-16 Report Card Data has been delayed until November 14, 2016
At various times during the year, data is collected by the district and used to make decisions related to instructional programs, allocation of resources, or create or revise policies or procedures. Data is also collected in order to analyze our progress in achieving goals for improving student achievement. In many cases, this same data is reported to the NC Department of Public Instruction where it is aggregated into a state wide report and presented to the State Board of Education for approval and released to the public.
The annual NC School Report Card compiles this data and provides comprehensive information on student achievement, school climate, student demographics and teacher quality for each public school, each school district, and for the state as a whole.
This Report Card
includes important, detailed information about school and student performance, class
size, attendance, school safety, and instructional resources. The Report Cards also provide details about school performance under the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). They contain information about school discipline, high school graduation rates, and digital learning devices. For the first time, schools
will receive a letter grade A-F to reflect overall student academic
achievement and growth in the school. The letter grades are based on student
performance (80%) and academic growth (20%).
These Report Cards are an excellent tool for parents to use in gathering data about their school. Parents and community members are encouraged to view the information and ask additional questions to learn more about the special programs and efforts to improve student achievement.
