School Quality Rating Policy

The CPS School Quality Rating Policy (SQRP) is the District's policy for measuring annual school performance. The ratings for the 2019-2020 school year (based on 2018-2019 data) are the third set of school ratings determined under SQRP. The purpose of the SQRP is to:

  1. Communicate to parents and community members about the academic success of individual schools and the district as a whole;
  2. Recognize high achieving and high growth schools and identifying best practices;
  3. Provide a framework for goal-setting for schools;
  4. Identify schools in need of targeted or intensive support; and
  5. Guide the Board's decision-making processes around school actions and turnarounds.

The SQRP is a five-tiered performance system based on a broad range of indicators of success, including, but not limited to, student test score performance, student academic growth, the closing of achievement gaps, school culture and climate, attendance, graduation, and preparation for post-graduation success. More information is available in the documents below.
