District Performance Reports: A Handbook To Assist Utah School Districts in Preparing District Performance Reports As Required by H.B. 170 Passed by the Utah State Legislature.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
Since 1990, the Utah State Legislature (in House Bill 170) has required that all Utah School Districts submit an annual performance report to the State Board of Education and the Legislature by January 15th of each year. This document serves as a guide in compiling information, designing, and publishing school district performance reports. Suggestions for the content, information sources, and reporting standards for the data elements are included. An extensive table lists each of the specific data elements recommended for inclusion in district performance reports along with ideas about where such data may be found and standards for reporting each data element. A model for reporting achievement test trend results is also provided. The appendix includes copies of several documents pertinent to the creation of district performance reports: (1) House Bill 170; (2) a list of individuals and organizations that collect district information pertinent to district performance reports; (3) a list of publications that may be useful in preparing district performance reports; (4) state education statistics for 1987-89; (5) Utah ACT performance for 1990-91; (6) Utah and National Advanced Placement Performance for 1991; (7) Course-taking patterns of Utah high school seniors in 1991; and (8) sample district performance report.
