NC Report Card Information

posted Jun 5, 2019, 6:58 AM by Kimberly Ward

Parents, Guardian and other Stakeholders - Information regarding NC Report Cards went home with students this week. We will have our computer lab and Media Center open this week for parents to have access to the information below.

North Carolina’s school report cards are an important resource for parents, educators, state leaders, researchers, and others, providing information about school- and district-level data in a number of areas. These include student performance and academic growth, school and student characteristics, and many other details.

Report cards are provided for all North Carolina public schools, including charter and alternative schools.

North Carolina's School Report Cards are presented two different ways, designed to meet the needs of all users. An interactive, easy-to-navigate section was redesigned in 2017 and is available here. This citizen-friendly website addresses the need for quick reference on topics that are most important to parents and educators. A more analytic section is intended for those who prefer a more detailed view of the data. The two areas, both designed and hosted by SAS and available to anyone, include printable versions of the North Carolina School Report Card snapshots.

Under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the 2017-18SY School Report Card includes the following:

EL Progress indicator
Long term goals
Grade 8th Math Exception configurations
Combined EOG/EOC scores
Separated EOG/EOC
School Performance Grades by subgroup
Subgroup reporting changes for several academic Indicators
ACT/ACT Workkeys
Alternative School reporting adjusted to comply SBE directive
CSI/TSI Designations (including the reasons for any such designations)
Participation rate reporting
Chronic absenteeism by subgroup
School Safety by subgroup
Charter school demographics by subgroup
Preschool Enrollment by subgroup
Specialized Course Enrollment by subgroup
Preschool Enrollment by subgroup
School improvement plans
Additionally, the Report Card will include data for College Endorsements, KEA School Readiness, and Arts & Education.

Parents and others should note that the information in the School Report Card, while important, cannot tell you the entire story about a school. Other important factors — the extra hours put in by teachers preparing for class and grading assignments, the school spirit felt by families, the involvement in sports, arts, or other extracurriculars — are crucial aspects of a school community, but are not reflected on the Report Card.
