Every year schools across New York receive report card grades, much like the ones they send schoolkids home with.
According to the Schools.nyc.gov website, which releases the reports, here’s how the schools’ grading system is broken down:
Progress Reports help parents, teachers, principals, and school communities understand schools’ strengths and weaknesses. Progress Reports grade each school with an A, B, C, D, or F and are based student progress (60%), student performance (25%), and school environment (15%). Scores are based on comparing results from one school to a peer group of up to 40 schools with the most similar student population and to all schools citywide.
Here are the District 21 high school progress grades for some of the schools in our area:
No “A” grades in the area, unfortunately, but it does seem that Dewey is maintaining their good grades, which is great news for Dewy supporters and staff.
