Accessing Performance Framework Data
The Colorado Department of Education publishes annual School and District Performance Frameworks (SPFs and DPFs) that provide school plan type and district accreditation ratings under the state accountability system. Official ratings are based on student outcomes on key performance indicators: Academic Achievement, Academic Growth, and Postsecondary & Workforce Readiness. Districts and schools earn points for each key indicator, and then points are combined to determine the overall percentage of points earned. The State Board of Education defines cut-points for accreditation ratings based on the overall percentage of points earned on the performance framework.
Districts and Schools are assigned plan types as displayed by the triangles in the graphics below. The colored lines beneath the respective triangles indicate the possible ratings with score ranges.
Accessing Improvement Plans
Unified Improvement Planning was developed to streamline state and federal improvement requirements, as well as create a single plan that meaningfully engages stakeholders. Colorado schools and districts can improve student learning and system effectiveness by engaging in a cycle of continuous improvement to manage their performance. To support this purpose, each Colorado district and school creates improvement plan.
The most recent published version of school and district improvement plans are available in the gray box above, titled "Unified Improvement Plan (UIP)".
