Palouse Prairie School State Report Card
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is required by No Child Left Behind (NCLB) as a measure of all schools, school districts, and the state in meeting required federal benchmarks. Idaho uses the results of the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to calculate AYP. Each year, all schools are required to reach state-approved goals in reading, math and a third category (typically language arts for elementary schools and graduation rate for high schools). They also must meet goals for the number of students participating on the ISAT. The results of assessments are used to determine whether a school is making Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). The School Report Card provides an in-depth look at student achievement at the state, local and school level. These reports are a great way for Idaho parents and citizens to see how Idaho schools are performing.

Public Charter School Commission Annual Report
The Idaho Public Charter School Commission issues an annual performance report to every school it has chartered. This report serves several purposes, including providing transparent, data-driven information about charter school quality. It contains an overview of the school, including its history, mission, leadership, and demographics. The overview is followed by the school’s performance framework looking at academic, mission-specific, operational, and financial measures and criteria.
Public charter schools operations are inherently complex. For this reason, readers are encouraged to consider the scores on individual measures within the framework as a starting point for gaining full, contextualized understanding of the school’s performance. See the additional resource below for information about understanding the report.
