At CarolinaCAN, we want to make sure you have the resources you need to make informed decisions as a parent, educator, advocate or policymaker.
Today, I’m happy to unveil one more tool for your toolbox: CarolinaCAN’s 2013 school and district report cards.
Our easy-to-use online database features profiles for all 2,500 North Carolina public schools and their districts. With it, you can find out how your local school and district are performing across each of the following five categories:
- Overall student performance
- Subgroup performance (black, Latino and low-income)
- Achievement gaps
- Performance gains
- Four-year cohort performance gains.
In addition to holding a magnifying glass to some of North Carolina’s persistent achievement gaps, the report cards also celebrate the public schools that are proving all students not only can but are achieving at high levels.
CarolinaCAN’s Top 10 Schools lists showcase the schools out-performing the rest of the state in black, Latino and low-income student performance, as well as performance gains.
At CarolinaCAN, we believe that public awareness is the first step in making it possible for every child in North Carolina to attend an A+ school.
So please, check out the report cards and Top 10 lists, and shoot us a note or a tweet to let us know what you think!
