Annual Progress Reports

The Department of Education requires that each school district provide a yearly report to the community that outlines the district’s progress toward achievement of established academic achievement goals. The Annual Progress Report (APR) is now released by the Department of Education for each district in the state of Iowa and is called the Iowa School Performance Profiles.

The Iowa Department of Education releases updates to its online school accountability reporting system called the Iowa School Performance Profiles annually. The website shows how schools are performing on multiple measures and meets federal and state requirements for publishing report cards.

The Iowa School Performance Profiles include scores and ratings on a set of accountability measures, such as student growth and graduation rate, and additional data that are required by law. The majority of the scores are drawn from the Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) and the Conditions for Learning survey. The website also specifies schools that have been identified for additional support and improvement based on their performance.

Report cards provide an overall view of school performance as well as more detailed information. The overall performance includes both an overall score and performance rating for all Iowa schools. The rating categories include Exceptional, High Performing, Commendable, Acceptable, Needs Improvement, and Priority.
