In addition to the state-wide data available in the Annual Performance Report, the department has created Local Annual Performance Reports for each supervisory union and supervisory district for 14 indicators.
- Use the State Performance Plan to Provide Context: The Revised Part B State Performance Plan (SPP) for 2005-2010 provides the background and context necessary to help interpret those data contained in the Local Annual Performance Reports. For each local reporting indicator, the SPP provides a full explanation of the measurement methodology, baseline data, performance targets and improvement activities associated with each indicator.
- Data Suppression: Data has been suppressed in the reports when cell counts are <11 in accordance with the department small “n” policy for public reporting. This policy is designed to prevent the release of potentially personally identifying student information and/or statistically unreliable information. Suppressed data is noted by “***” or “N/A” depending on the indicator (an explanation is included in the footnotes accompanying each Local Annual Performance Report).
