Scorecards Listing 2009-2010 Campus Performance Now Available
Reports are designed to provide school data directly to parents and the community
DALLAS–School scorecards with performance data from the 2009-2010 school year are now available on the district’s Web site at www.dallasisd.org/scorecards. The scorecards are annual reports to parents and the community that provide information about a school’s performance and progress toward the district’s goals for student achievement. The performance measures used to create the scorecards go beyond test scores to include outcomes such as graduation rates, college readiness, attendance, and other key measures of success.
The scorecard system is different from previous documentation, because it is designed to convey information to parents and the community. Important information is in one place and formatted for ease of use.
