2017 DC Public Charter School Board Performance Management Framework Results

November 08 2017 | School News

 
Today, the DC Public Charter School Board (PCSB) released 2017 Performance Management Framework (PMF) results for charter schools. The reports offer a comprehensive overview of public charter schools in the city – measuring performance on a variety of indicators including test scores, attendance, and re-enrollment rates, among others – and serve as a resource for families. PMFs score each school between 0-100, placing the school in one of three performance tiers. Tier 1 are top-performing schools, Tier 2 are mid-performing, and Tier 3 are low-performing. 

In the 2017 PMFs, DC Prep’s Edgewood Middle and Elementary Campuses, Benning Elementary Campus, and Anacostia Elementary Campus (AEC) were designated Tier 1. Of special note, AEC achieved Tier 1 status in its first year of being scored.* Benning Middle Campus (BMC) missed the Tier 1 cut-off by six points and was designated Tier 2 for 2017; BMC is doing excellent work and we remain confident that performance this year will result in 2018 Tier 1 status. Looking ahead, we have more to do, including accelerating academic growth for all of our students.

*PMFs are not calculated for Year 1 schools – 2017 is AEC’s inaugural year of PMF eligibility.

What our Teachers are Saying

“DC Prep is the one school I know where I can have colleagues who share my educational philosophy, an organizational structure that values and supports my instructional practice, and where I can also live the best family life possible given the demands of working at a no excuses school like DC Prep.”
John Becker, 6th Grade Math Teacher (EMC)
