As a part of her vision for New York City’s schools, Chancellor Fariña has announced a set of new accountability tools for New York City public schools: the School Quality Snapshot and School Quality Guide.
A result of months of consultation with school leaders, parents and experts throughout the country, these reports will replace the Progress Report. They are tailored to specific audiences and are designed to provide a more complete picture of school quality based on multiple measures. They include information from a formal school visit and evaluation by an experienced educator; feedback from parents, students and teachers from the NYC School Survey; and a variety of achievement and progress measures.
The School Quality Snapshot is a family-facing report that provides a concise picture of the quality of each school in a user-friendly format. The School Quality Guide provides a more robust set of information about each school, including multiple years of data so that schools’ progress over time can be more easily tracked. Draft versions of the new school quality reports and accompanying parent guides are available below by school type. Spanish and Chinese language versions of the Middle School Quality Snapshot are available below. Additional translated versions will be available soon. Reports for individual schools will be available later this fall.Elementary School Reports • Elementary School Quality Snapshot • Family Guide to Elementary School Quality Snapshot • Elementary School Quality GuideMiddle School Reports • Middle School Quality Snapshot ( Chinese | Spanish ) • Family Guide to Middle School Quality Snapshot • Middle School Quality GuideHigh School Reports • High School Quality Snapshot ( Russian ) • Family Guide to High School Quality Snapshot • High School Quality Guide
