State officials this week unveiled the ratings for 2,080 schools or programs under the Education Accountability Act of 2009. Only those ratings agreed upon by state and district officials have been released. Another 99 campuses are still being reviewed.
Ratings possible are Performance, Improvement, Priority Improvement and Turnaround. The label determines what type of improvement plan a school must file with the state. To learn more about the new state accountability system, see this EdNews’ story.
Check out this neat-o search function at Education News Colorado created by EdNews staff writer Nancy Mitchell. If your school doesn’t pop up when you enter it in the search field, plug in your district and search for it there.
