School Report Cards - How Are We Doing?

In accordance with state and federal law, The Utah State Board of Education is required to annually publish district and school accountability data in the form of school report cards. The USBE makes annual accountability determinations for schools and districts based on student outcomes and growth. Utah’s School Report Card is just one piece of information that communicates how well a school is performing across a range of multiple indicators of student performance. This information is used to accurately identify schools in need of support and improvement, and ultimately provide information about the educational practices. However, it is important to note that not all grades and subjects are included because not all grade levels and courses have statewide end-of-year assessments; kindergarten, first-grade, second-grade, social studies, world languages, health, physical education, and the arts are examples. (For more information about school report cards, click on the title "School Report Cards - How Are We Doing?")
