Components of the School Profile Explained

All data for the most recent profiles has been drawn from EdSight, and is for the 2016-17 school year.

 

The Basics

  • School Type distinguishes between Magnet schools and Neighborhood/District schools.
  • Grades lists the grades the school serves.
  • Enrollment numbers reflect the total enrollment of a school.
  • Demographics data includes the percentages of minority students, English Language Learners, Special Education students, and students who qualify for free and reduced price lunch. Several of these display values as ">X%." In these cases, data from EdSight is incomplete, but there is enough to determine that the true value is at least X%.
  • Chronic Absenteeism calculates the percentage of students who have missed 18 days (10%) of school or more, regardless of reason (excused or unexcused).

 

SBAC

There are two tables: one for ELA, and one for math. The two tables rank all SBAC-administering schools against each other and the overall district average by the percentage of students meeting/exceeding the Achievement Goal. The percentages shown for each school are for all grade levels in the school combined.

  • Schools in the same zone as the school being profiles are shaded in Green.
  • The overall district average is highlighted in Blue.
  • The profiled school average is outlined.
  • The few chools whose data has been suppressed for privacy reasons are given the value of "N/A." They are unranked, and listed at the bottom of the table.

 

SAT

Again, there are two tables: one for ELA, and one for math. The two tables rank all SAT-administering schools against each other and the overall district average by the average score students achieved on each test.

  • Schools in the same zone as the school being profiles are shaded in Green.
  • The overall district average is highlighted in Blue.
  • The profiled school average is outlined.
