Why does az label schools

Why does AZ label schools?

  • Public Notice: To provide parents and the general public with information on how AZ schools are performing

  • Accountability: To identify schools that are struggling so that action can be taken to improve student learning

Changes to how AZ labels schools

  • Presently, all AZ schools are labeled as either:

    • Excelling

    • Highly Performing

    • Performing / Performing Plus

    • Underperforming

    • Failing

  • This school year AZ will begin to transition to an A, B, C, D and F labeling system.

  • Growth (50% of calculation)

    • Measurement of how much students haveimproved during the school year (measured by AIMS scores)

    • Places greater emphasis on the improvement of students performing in the bottom quartile

Transition to new labels

Transition To New Labels

  • Because the method of calculating labels will change we can expect some variance between the old labels and the new.

    • For example, a school that was labeled “excelling” under the existing system may be labeled a “B” under the new system.

  • To give schools time to adjust to the new labels AZ law provides for a two year transition period.

    • For the next two years schools will receive both the traditional label (excelling, highly performing, etc.) and the new label (A – F).

    • During this time the State will enforce the traditional labels (excelling, highly performing, etc.)

  • Beginning in 2013 AZ will only utilize the A-F labels.
