N.C. School Report Cards
Dear Parents and Families:
Just as we provide regular updates to you about your student’s academic progress by sending home a report card, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) develops a report card for every school and district in the state. On May 1, 2019, NCDPI released the 2017-2018 North Carolina School Report Card. The School Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, teacher qualifications, and more.
Educational leaders are committed to sharing information with parents and families. With this information, families can better participate in their children’s education and enhance the learning environment for students.
Every public school in the state is given a letter grade by NCDPI based on student performance. The School Performance Grade is comprised of 80 percent for student achievement and 20 percent for academic growth.
I encourage you to review your NCDPI School Report Card carefully, then feel free to contact your principal to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. I also welcome your feedback regarding other interests you have in your school and our district. If you need assistance in reviewing the NCDPI School Report Cards in a language other than English or Spanish, please contact Ana Ortiz (336) 748-4000 Ext. 51514 firstname.lastname@example.org or our English Learner Office at (336) 727-8029.
Along with the NCDPI School Report Cards, there is a NCDPI District Snapshot and a report for the state’s education system as a whole. Visit the Parents/Community section on our website to see the NCDPI District Snapshot.
Thank you for allowing me to share the NCDPI School Report Card with you, and thank you for supporting our efforts to provide your child with a high-quality education.
Kenneth Simington, Interim Superintendent
