What are School Quality Reports, and how are they used to assess schools?

Each year, we evaluate the performance of every public charter school in the District. These evaluations are compiled into reports, which are used to rate schools as Tier 1, 2, or 3, with Tier 1 being the best. This helps rate their level of achievement compared with other public charter schools across DC. The School Quality Reports are calculated using the Performance Management Framework, or PMF, accountability system. Learn more about PMF here.  

Although every public charter school is unique, these reports focus on common metrics to rate and evaluate all schools on an equal footing. To learn more, view the School Quality Report here.
