School Report Cards

What Are School Report Cards?

In November of 2001, Arizona voters approved Proposition 301 that, among other things, provided funds to the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) to develop "a system to measure school performance based on student achievement, including student performance on the AIMS test." The actual legislative requirements for the accountability system are stated in section 15-241 of the Arizona Revised Statutes (ARS S 15-241). The accountability system created to satisfy the statute is referred to as the Arizona LEARNS Achievement Profile.

The Arizona Department of Education (ADE) has developed an integrated accountability system that evaluates the performance of all public schools, districts, and charter holders in the state. The following table provides an overview of the two parts of the accountability system.
