  • ESSA State Report Cards

    The Office of Public Instruction released the 2017-18 school year report cards on Monday, April 22, 2019. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires state, district, and school-level data to be displayed on report cards in a concise, understandable, and accessible manner for families and communities. The state, district, and local report cards will be available along with additional information on the OPI’s new report card webpage.  This data is already publicly available on the state’s GEMS Data warehouse. It is now being conveyed in an easier format for the public to understand.
