What is the School Performance Framework?

The School Performance Framework is a report card for your school, rating how well the school supports student growth and achievement and how well it serves students and families. The framework provides essential feedback for a school’s leaders, helping them to focus on its strengths and make progress in key areas where improvement is needed.

Each fall, your school receives a rating based on the previous year’s state test results. Because Colorado transitioned to a new state test in 2015, we are unable to compare results from the old test to results from the new test, so the district did not issue any School Performance Framework ratings for 2015.

2016 School Performance Framework ratings will be announced in October.

How does DPS use School Performance Framework ratings to support schools?

Each year, the district reviews school performance, including SPF ratings. These ratings are one of the ways that DPS identifies lower-performing schools that might need additional support and/or resources to improve.
