Did you know that New Jersey’s School Performance Reports provide families, educators and the public a picture of overall school performance?  The performance reports offer valuable information across many elements, including school-wide academic achievement and progress, demographics, school climate, chronic absenteeism, and college and career readiness.  The School Performance Reports were developed with, and are continually enhanced by, input from stakeholders like you.


New Jersey School Performance One-Page Summary Reports
For the first time, the NJDOE is publishing one-page, parent-friendly Summary Reports providing easy-to-read highlights of each school. The Summary Reports are a dashboard of key indicators such as student progress, graduation rates and 2-year and 4-year college attendance. The NJDOE has also made available a guide (rc.doe.state.nj.us/Documents/SummaryReportGuide.html) to explain the different data points on the Summary Reports.


Over Two Dozen New Data Elements
The 2016-17 New Jersey School Performance Reports (rc.doe.state.nj.us/SearchForSchool.aspx) contain new data elements, including:

·         Updated school narratives with information across a variety of categories;

·         Full and/or half day Pre-K and K reporting;

·         Chronic Absenteeism by grade, subgroup, and progress toward statewide goals;

·         In-school and out-of-school suspensions; and

·         School start and end times.


Summative Rating
Federal law requires New Jersey to include a summative rating based on a formula that combines a few key measures (i.e., proficiency, student growth, graduation and chronic absenteeism). This summative rating is just one part of the overall performance of a school and it is used to determine which schools need the most intense support.
