2016 Iowa School Report Card
Dear Families and Community:
Knowing where you are and where you want to go is a key part of growth and improvement. Our district regularly uses education data to tell us how our students are progressing and to adjust instruction for better results.
The state is now providing an additional source of information with the release of the Iowa School Report Card. This web-based tool provides a snapshot of every Iowa public school’s performance on certain educational measures, such as student attendance and proficiency rates on the Iowa Assessments.
The goal of the Iowa School Report Card is to present certain education data that makes it easy for the public to find and understand. The Iowa Department of Education developed this tool in response to a 2013 legislative requirement (House File 215).
