What is the DCPS school scorecard?
The purpose of the scorecard is to give parents, students and community members in the District of Columbia a clear, objective picture of school performance.
By incorporating multiple measures of school quality into one tool, the scorecard presents a unique opportunity to compare schools’ strengths and weaknesses across the District. The metrics within the Scorecard are aligned to the Effective Schools Framework and include information that parents have identified as vital to decision-making about their child’s school. These include school safety and culture, student achievement and student growth.
With a few exceptions, data are displayed for the previous two school years so school performance can be tracked over time. District averages for similar schools are displayed when available.
