School and District Report Cards RIDE values transparency, and believes that education data should be as accessible and easy-to-understand as possible. In 2018, as part of the state’s updated system of school accountability under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the federal education law, Rhode Island created a new and user-friendly Report Card platform that makes it easier than ever for students, educators, and families to understand how their school community is performing. See the Report Cards The latest Rhode Island school and district Report Cards will be publicly available in November 2019. The Report Card platform displays a range of education data, including student performance, school-level spending, and SurveyWorks, the state’s annual school climate and culture survey. A major component of the Report Card platform is School Accountability. Within the accountability tab, you will find the data that are used in evaluating school performance, from traditional measures like test scores and graduation rates, to broader measures like chronic absenteeism for students and teachers. These data then result in a Star Rating for every public school in the state, which simplifies and summarizes overall performance.
