Have you ever checked the DESE School and District Profiles pages for information on your school?
DESE publishes public data related to local and statewide profiles. This includes data on school funding, student growth, MCAS scores, graduation rates and enrollment. DESE also publishes “profiles” of schools and districts and “report cards” that highlight the accountability and assistance levels.
Take a look at the “report card” for your school and district by searching at http://profiles.doe.mass.edu/.
DESE is currently collecting feedback on a redesigned School and Distric Profiles page:
Would you like to see better information displayed on your local “report card”? Should it be called a “report card”? Do you have opinions on what type of information should be highlighed?
Be sure to let DESE know if you think this page is a Level 5 – Needs Substantial Intervention or is Meeting Gap Narrowing Goals or if you have no idea what any of this information means for your school and students.
