The Connecticut State Department of Education is excited to announce the release of the “Connecticut Report Cards” on our data portal EdSight at http://edsight.ct.gov. The report cards are user-friendly, visual reports for all schools, districts, and the state. The Connecticut Report Cards are also designed to fulfill the reporting requirements outlined in the Every Student Succeeds Act and the Connecticut General Statutes.
Each report card provides essential information about:
- Students (e.g., enrollment, demographics, attendance, discipline)
- Educators (e.g., capacity, demographics, attendance)
- Instruction/Resources (e.g., course participation, time with non-disabled peers, per-pupil expenditures)
- Performance (e.g., state test achievement and growth, high school graduation, college readiness, physical fitness, college entrance)
The report cards use simple charts to visualize the data and make them accessible and understandable to a broad audience. Most charts offer trend data and encourage a longer-term perspective. District and/or state data are offered as comparisons in many cases. An “info icon” next to every chart contains a brief explanation of the data. When new data are available, the particular chart in the report card will be updated.
