Academic Accountability

School performance for CSI's portfolio schools is measured against the performance frameworks of both the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) and CSI accountability systems. The purpose of both the CDE and CSI performance frameworks is to hold schools accountable for performance based on the same or similar set of indicators and measures. Both accountability systems look at four key performance indicators of academic achievement, academic growth, academic growth gaps, and postsecondary and workforce readiness.  CDE's annual school evaluation takes the form of the School Performance Framework (SPF) report.  CSI’s accountability system also evaluates schools against additional indicators as well as allows schools to identify mission-specific measures.  CSI's school annual evaluation takes the form of the Annual Performance Report (APR) and dashboard.

Accessing Student Performance Data
School leaders can access their school's student-level state assessment data and school performance framework reports through the Colorado Education Data Analysis & Reporting (CEDAR) system.  Tutorials on logging in to and accessing reports are available once logged in to CEDAR.  Click here for instructions on downloading the assessment flat files from CEDAR.
