District 51 Schools Fare Well In Accountability Reports

The results are in for the Colorado Department of Education's annual accountability reports.

The results are based on student performance in the CSAP tests, which are taken annually across the State.

On the whole, school's throughout District 51 received positive marks, with two schools earning ratings of excellent, 14 schools rated high, 20 schools scored in the average range, and 5 schools were rated low.

No schools in the district were given an unsatisfactory rating
and school district officials say the reports are a good way to plan for future academic achievements.

In addition to the report's annual performance indicator, a new measurement was added this year which charts academic growth, something that district officials say will help target individual student performance.
