The APR is a report on the performance of schools and school corporations in your area. The goal is to provide information regarding the progress schools are making to help students become college-and–career ready. Where possible, this report contains three years of data to show trends – not just this year’s results. In addition, the State Average is also shown for comparison purposes. There are additional indicators that are available on the Indiana Department of Education’s Web site (compass.doe.in.gov), including data broken out by different student subgroups, such as race, gender, income level and special education.
The data in this report have been supplied by the Indiana Department of Education and local school corporations. The report provides the most recent data available.
Indiana educators and citizens have developed higher academic standards for all students. These standards are necessary to prepare Indiana students to be successful in life, whether they go directly to higher education or to the workplace. The scores for ISTEP+ are listed under each school to reflect student progress toward those standards. Note: In 2014-15 Indiana transitioned to a new, more rigorous college–and–career ready standards and a new statewide assessment to measure these standards. Therefore ISTEP results are not comparable to previous data. For high schools, you also will see graduation rates and the percentage of graduates who plan to go on to college.
Other important data are provided, such as average attendance rates and indicators of school safety, including expulsions and suspensions. Also included is information about your school corporation, such as how much teachers are paid; and the percentage of corporation students who are in special education classes or gifted and talented classes.
