On October 30th, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) released the School Report Card for every district and school in the state of Illinois.  The Report Card shows how well our schools are progressing on a wide range of educational goals. The 2019 Illinois
Report Card pairs fiscal and academic data to support inquiry into the relationship between financial investments, equity, and student outcomes.  Each school’s Report Card also now includes a designation--a descriptor of how well our schools are meeting the needs of all students.  This designation is based on multiple measures including PARCC and SAT proficiency, student growth, graduation rate, and student absenteeism.  This is very different from School Report Cards of the past that only measured proficiency on standardized tests.

The four possible school designations are:

1. EXEMPLARY
  • Performance in the top 10% of all schools in the State of Illinois
  • High schools with graduation rate higher than 67%
  • No underperforming student groups at or below the “all students” group in the lowest-performing 5% of all schools
2. COMMENDABLE
  • Performance not in the top 10% of all schools in the State of Illinois
  • High schools with graduation rate higher than 67%
  • No underperforming student groups at or below the “all students” group in the lowest-performing 5% of all schools
3. UNDERPERFORMING
  • One or more student groups underperforming at or below the “all students” group in the lowest-performing 5% of all schools; groups must have at least 20 students in at least three indicators
4. LOWEST-PERFORMING
  • In the lowest-performing 5% of Title I eligible schools statewide
  • High schools with the graduation rate at or below 67%
We are very proud of all of our schools and are happy to report that all six schools in the Triad District received designations of “Exemplary” or “Commendable”.  In the coming weeks, you will receive more information regarding these designations and what you can do to help our district continue to receive top marks from the state.  Having successful schools is more than just having great teachers and students. It takes a community effort to ensure that students get to school on time and have the resources necessary to be successful. We want to thank everyone in our community for the continued support of the Triad School District.
