Rhode Island School and District Accountability System Technical Bulletin
Rhode Island Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
On January 8, 2002, the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was reauthorized as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). NCLB required states to establish a single accountability system that includes every school and district. Rhode Island proposed an accountability model incorporating NCLB requirements to the US Department of Education for approval and this model was first implemented to interpret performance on student assessments during the 2002-03 school year, building on previous state legislation Article 31 that put into place a policy framework and accountability system that included all Rhode Island public schools. The information in this Technical Bulletin discusses how the calculations were done in order to create the Accountability Report Cards for schools and districts, baselines, criteria for school classification, intervention categories, system flexibility, exemptions, and appeals. (Contains 16 figures.) [For previous version, see ED484098.]
