The 2017 Report Cards continue to report on South Dakota’s accountability system as defined in the state’s ESEA flexibility waiver. This is the final year of Report Cards under the waiver.

This year’s report cards look similar to the previous year. Important elements include:

  • Academic Growth remains as an indicator for elementary and middle schools;
  • Student Achievement scores are based on adding together three years of performance on the state assessments;
  • College and Career Readiness incorporates performance on the Smarter Balanced assessment, in addition to the ACT and Accuplacer, and therefore looks at the college readiness of all graduates. Therefore, this indicator now more accurately reflects how prepared South Dakota’s high school graduates are for college.

The overall system continues to be based on a 100-point School Performance Index (SPI), consisting of multiple indicators to measure a school’s performance. These indicators are different at the elementary and high school levels.

South Dakota will transition to the Every Student Succeeds Act, for the 2017-18 school year. Because this is the final year of the transition from the waiver to ESSA, schools have new SPI scores but classifications remain those that were made in 2015.
