Assessment & Accountability

The Program Evaluation Department coordinates a range of assessment and evaluation projects including:  oversight of the distribution, administration, collection, and security of all state and district assessment; the School Accountability Report Cards (SARC), and Report of Progress (report cards). The department manages and supports the implementation of DnA, the district's assessment database.  To help facilitate informed decision-making the Program Evaluation Department analyzes, interprets, and disseminates student achievement results to schools, district office staff, and the community.
