Additionally, star ratings did not apply nor were federal classifications calculated for 2019-2020. Data included in the School Report Card release include transition to adult life/graduation rates, overview information of the faculty, staff, and community, and the education opportunity/CTE snapshot.
Trend lines and progress toward state goals information is new to the School Report Card for 2020. Trend lines are currently available within the School Report Card for student enrollment, Kindergarten screener data, and graduation rate.
