Released in October 2013, the School Performance Profile provides the public with detailed information of the academic performance of public schools. The profile does not only rely on results of the statewide assessments but it also incorporates other measures of student achievement, such as student academic growth from year to year; graduation rate; attendance rate; promotion rate; and increasing the achievement of all students, such as English language learners and economically disadvantaged students. At the high school level, the score takes into consideration other indicators such as Advanced Placement scores, SAT and ACT scores, PSAT participation and students scoring Advanced.
