View Resource: SPF School Performance Stoplight
This report is a sample stoplight report produced by the Denver School Performance Rating. The report is color-coded similar to a stoplight where red indicates low performance, green indicates adequate performance and blue indicates exceptional performance. This version of the stoplight is intended for an audience of educators. The stoplight is simplified when it is presented to the community. The relative weightings of the various indicators are easy to identify in this report based on comparing the total possible points for each group of indicators. This sample report shows how a school that serves a relatively high percentage of FRL students (77%) and ELL students (49%) can achieve the highest rating of distinguished on the Denver SPF.
Outcomes and Lessons Learned: Denver is continuing to refine the weightings applied to the various indicators on the School Performance Framework. Over time, new weightings will be introduced to ensure that there is more balance between growth and proficiency, but at present growth is factored much more heavily than proficiency. In addition, Denver is continuing to refine the indicators that measure college readiness.
