How is our school doing overall?
Accountability and assistance levels
Our school
Level1
Meeting gap narrowing goals
Our district
Level2
One or more schools in the district classified into Level 2

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. 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.mass.gov/ese/accountability.
