What Is the A-F Accountability System?
The A-F Accountability System is required by federal law to measure school performance and is required by state law to do so through an A-F letter grade system. The A-F system quantitatively measures student proficiency and annual growth in key areas as well as readiness to take the next step in their education or career. Specifically, schools annually earn a letter grade based on a range of comprehensive measures including:
*Proficiency in English Language Arts, Math and Science
*Growth in English Language Arts and Math
*Proficiency and Growth of English Language Learners
*Acceleration and Readiness Measurer, which consists of several measures including chronic absenteeism and the improved growth of subgroups.
*College and Career Readiness Indicators, which includes passing the ACT or SAT or earning an industry credential, certificate or license.
