Each year, Colorado schools receive performance ratings so that everyone can know how well they are doing. These reports are called the School Performance Frameworks (SPFs). The ratings assigned are based on achievement and growth on state assessments, along with graduation rates, drop-out rates, college entrance exams, and college matriculation rates.
In August 2020, the Denver Public School Board adopted Resolution 4079 in which DPS should adopt the State School Performance Framework for accountability. Included in that resolution was the development of a public dashboard which will be created by a committee of teachers, leaders, families, students, and community members.
The School Dashboard Advisory Committee that is being created by DPS has three primary goals:
- Make recommendations to the superintendent on information to include in the school dashboard
- Provide feedback to inform changes to initial versions of the school dashboard
- A subset of the committee will be asked to solicit community input and feedback, with support from our Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Department, to help inform the school dashboard work.
School Dashboard Advisory Committee is tentatively scheduled to begin on February 7, 2023, and will typically meet on the first Tuesday evening of each month until June 2024. In the fall of 2024, the comprehensive school dashboard will go live.
