District and School Performance Framework Results


The District Performance Framework (DPF) reports and School Performance Framework (SPF) reports provide the annual district and school ratings in support of Colorado’s state accountability system. Preliminary ratings for the prior school-year are released annually in September. Following the Request to Reconsider process (RTR), final DPF reports are released in November, and final SPF reports are released in December, following approval by the State Board of Education. For example, ratings for the 2017-2018 school year are referred to as the 2018 framework results. Preliminary results are released in September of 2018; final results are released in November and December of 2018. Alternative Education Campus (AEC) framework results are released on the same schedule as the school performance framework results. Framework results are presented in the formats below.
