A Parent Guide to State and Local Report Cards

Cover of A Parent Guide to State and Local Report Cards

New!

States and districts are required to publish report cards that show how the state, district, and schools are doing. The report cards provide parents and the public with important information on state, district, and school performance and progress. This document, titled A Parent Guide to State and Local Report Cards, has been released by U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to provide an overview of the types of information included on report cards.
