The Iowa School Performance Profiles is an online tool showing how public schools performed on required measures. The website was developed to meet both federal and state requirements for publishing online school report cards: The federal Every Student Succeeds Act and House File 215, adopted by Iowa lawmakers in 2013.
The website includes:
- Scores on school accountability measures required under ESSA
- Ratings based on those scores: Exceptional, High Performing, Commendable, Acceptable, Needs Improvement, and Priority
- Identification of schools for support and improvement based on accountability scores (Comprehensive and Targeted schools)
- Additional education data that must be reported by law but do not figure into school accountability scores
