How we calculate academic ratings…
High performing = better than the MN average
High potential = better than the Minneapolis district average
Mid performing = below Minneapolis district average
Low performing = in the bottom 25% of schools in proficiency or growth
Persistently low performing = in the bottom 25% of schools in proficiency & growth
Limited Data = limited data, alternative programming or new school
Academic ratings for K-8 schools are informed by 3 years of MCA data, &, for high schools, a combination of ACT scores & college persistence.
