2015-16 was the first year that schools in the choice program (including Shining Star) submitted data to the DPI using a new data collection system. That data informed the school report cards that were released in November 2016 for all schools and districts. Due to a change in state law, private schools participating in the choice program now receive the same report cards as their public school counterparts.
While report cards were issued for all parental choice schools, no private schools have scores or ratings. At least two years of data are needed to produce a score or rating, and for private schools this is the first time data was submitted to DPI. The first private school report cards with scores and ratings will be for the 2016-17 school year, and will be released next fall.
Please remember that the report cards will not – cannot – measure all of the important work that happens in our school. It is critical that you pair any conversation about report card results with local data and stories that tell a fuller picture of student opportunities and performance.
