Annual District and School Grades Under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act
All schools are required by the state to annually complete a Self-Assessment in order to assist the state in determining school and district compliance in implementing the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights (ABR) Act. Click here to review a PowerPoint presentation that was provided to the board outlining the process and summary results for 2016-2017. In late fall/early winter, the state will release an official report containing this data, which is used to assign school and district grades. The school grade is a raw score of data and the sum of the ratings for all indicators within each core element on the Self-Assessment. The maximum total score for a school is 78 points. The district’s grade is an average of the total scores of all schools in the district. Click here to view the last published state report that includes all school and district grades. In order to foster safe and positive learning conditions for students, this data, along with feedback from School and District Safety Teams, is used as part of an integrated process for reinforcing and strengthening our school and district climate and culture.
