2017 School And District Accountability

Level

How is this school doing overall?


Not meeting gap narrowing goals

Most schools are assigned a level from 1-5, with those meeting their proficiency gap-narrowing goals in Level 1 and the lowest performing in Levels 4 and 5. A district is typically assigned a level based on the level of its lowest performing school. In 2017, the majority of schools and districts were given an accountability designation of "no level" if students in grades 3-8 participated in the Next-Generation MCAS tests. Placing schools and districts into levels helps districts know which schools need more support, and helps the state know which districts need the most assistance. More information is available here: http://www.doe.mass.edu/accountability/.

Legacy MCAS (CPI)

The Composite Performance Index (CPI) is a number from 1-100 that represents the extent to which students have attained or are progressing toward proficiency in a given subject. Students who demonstrate proficiency on MCAS tests, and students with severe cognitive disabilities who score at the Progressing level on the MCAS-Alternate assessment, receive 100 CPI points. Our school's CPIs for 2017 are below.
