We believe every neighborhood deserves a high-performing school. The state keeps track of school and district performance through an accountability system that includes 5 levels.
We partner with level 1 and 2 schools to share their best practices with other districts throughout the state. Level 3 and 4 districts receive targeted support, resources, and training from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to help boost student learning.
In the case of level 5 schools and districts, the state takes control of the school or district, implements a turnaround plan, and remains engaged until student performance improves dramatically and sustainably.
