School, District, and State level Report Cards

The 2015 Report Card reflects a return to a Report Card with full data and new classifications.

South Dakota’s accountability system uses a 100-point School Performance Index, or SPI. The SPI consists of multiple indicators to measure a school’s performance. Two distinct indexes are used: one for elementary/middle school accountability and one for high school accountability.

This year’s SPI scores will look a bit different from previous years’ report cards. The Student Achievement key indicator reflects the proficiency levels achieved under the new state assessment, Smarter Balanced. In addition, the state changed the method of calculating points for the Attendance key indicator. Therefore, neither of these two indicators should be compared with previous years’ results.
