The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) has published the 2017-2018 school accountability report cards. The redesigned interactive school report card, developed over the past 18 months, has been created to assist in evaluating academic performance of Utah schools. New features include reporting of test participation rates, consistent attendance rates and providing a 5 point rating descriptor for each of the following indicators of performance: achievement, growth, English learner progress, and post-secondary readiness. Viewers are able to drill down for more information within each indicator including how well a school performed compared to the district and state averages. Schools also have the ability to report two additional self-selected indicators of school performance. Noteworthy is that the Utah Legislature, having revised the accountability system in 2017, allowed USBE to suspend assigning letter grades for the 2018 school report cards.
