The ratings for the 2018-2019 school year (based on 2017-2018 data) are the fifth set of school ratings determined under SQRP. The purpose of the SQRP is to:
- Communicate to parents and community members about the academic success of individual schools and the district as a whole;
- Recognize high achieving and high growth schools and identifying best practices;
- Provide a framework for goal-setting for schools;
- Identify schools in need of targeted or intensive support; and
- Guide the Board's decision-making processes around school actions and turnarounds.
The SQRP is a five-tiered performance system based on a broad range of indicators of success, including, but not limited to, student test score performance, student academic growth, closing of achievement gaps, school culture and climate, attendance, graduation, and preparation for post-graduation success. More information is available in the documents below.
SQRP Stakeholder Survey
Chicago Public Schools (CPS) is redeveloping its School Quality Rating Policy, and we want feedback on the current policy from our staff, students, parents, and CPS partners. We will use the results to reshape the policy in a way that is more responsive to our valuable stakeholders. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.
