Index Summary

2012 School Progress Index (SPI)

The School Progress Index and the resulting Strand classification help identify schools for intervention, support, and recognition depending on their progress.

The School Progress Index evaluates schools on indicators of Achievement, Growth, and Gap Reduction for elementary and middle schools, and Achievement, Gap, and College- and Career-Readiness for high schools. The School Progress Index is compensatory so that a low value on one indicator can be balanced by a high value on another indicator.

An SPI Value is calculated for each grade span (elementary, middle, and high school) based on the school’s performance on the Indicators. If a school serves students in multiple grade spans, the overall SPI for that school is calculated based on the SPI for each grade span weighted by the population in each grade span.
