The New York State Report Cards provide enrollment, demographic, attendance, suspension, dropout, teacher, assessment, accountability, graduation rate, post-graduate plan, and fiscal data for public and charter schools, districts, and the State.
The 2011-2012 report cards consist of three parts: The New York State Report Card, The New York State Accountability Report, and The Fiscal Accountability Supplement.
Prior to 2011, the New York State Report Cards consisted of two reports: Accountability and Overview Report (AOR) which shows district/school profile data, accountability statuses, and data on accountability measures like English language arts, mathematics, science and graduation rate, and Comprehensive Information Report (CIR) which shows non-accountability data, expenditures per pupil and some information about students with disabilities.
Data in the report cards were submitted by local school district officials. School superintendents and charter school principals were provided with an opportunity to review verification reports of data and make data corrections until the reporting deadline. Data in the report cards are those submitted to the New York State Education Department (NYSED) by the reporting deadline. Districts and charter schools may have made modifications to the data or notified the NYSED of errors in the data after the reporting deadline. Therefore, interested individuals should contact the district to be sure that they have the latest data available.
