Denver’s Steck Elementary tops all schools on the district’s 2012 School Performance Framework.
District leaders on Monday released the school ratings, which consist of five possible labels for schools – Distinguished, Meets Expectations, Accredited on Watch, Accredited on Priority Watch and Accredited on Probation.
Fifteen schools, including eight with poverty rates of more than 50 percent, are Distinguished while 18 schools are Accredited on Probation.
Beach Court Elementary, where the principal was recently fired after a cheating investigation, is not rated. See top, bottom schools on the SPF.
- You can select more than one school by holding down the “Ctrl” or “Cmd” button and clicking on as many names as you’d like to see.
- To see all schools with a certain rating, skip the “School Name” search box and click on a rating in the “School Rating” search box.
- After finding your school, click on the “Details” button in the search results field to learn more about the school’s demographics and to see more detail about the factors behind the ratings.
- After clicking through to “Details,” you’ll see scores in the various areas that make up the overall rating. This includes growth, performance, student engagement, parent satisfaction and, for high schools, readiness growth and performance. Each area is rated, from best to worst, as “Exceeds,” “Meets,” “Approaching” or “Does Not Meet.”
- If your school does not have a rating for 2011, that typically means it is a new school. So it also will not have data under growth categories.
