This system takes a comprehensive look at both school and district performance based on a set of 12 indicators including academic achievement and growth, absenteeism, grade-level readiness, graduation, physical fitness and the arts. According to CSDE, the indicators help tell the story of how well a school is preparing its students for success in college, careers, and life. The system even moves beyond test scores and graduation rates and instead, provides a holistic multi factor perspective of the district and school performance while tracing a student’s growth over time.

These are some selected results.  All results and additional support materials for districts are available on the CSDE’s data portal EdSight at http://edsight.ct.gov.
