Northeast, West Are Top Glenwood Schools In Performance Ratings
Glenwood’s two elementary schools – Northeast Elementary and West Elementary – both received “High Performing” ratings in the latest Iowa Department Of Education Iowa School Performance Profiles.
Northeast and West had identical Index Score Ratings of 60.72, the highest of all Mills County schools.
IDOE has six rating categories – Exceptional (66.31 or above), High Performing (60.61-66.30), Commendable (54.91 – 60.60), Acceptable (49.21 – 54.90), Needs Improvement (44.17 – 49.20) and Priority (44.16 and below).
The updated scores and state school performance ratings for all public schools in Iowa are based on how they performed on multiple measures, including student proficiency and growth, during the the 2022-23 school year. Educator effectiveness and per pupil expenditures are also included with the ratings.
“Our performance profiles provide critical information for families, educators, and communities on how our schools are serving all students,” said IDOE Director McKenzie Snow. “We celebrate the hard work of schools to accelerate student learning and improve their ratings, while focusing on what we need to do to best serve students most in need of support, especially students with disabilities.
“Together with our school partners, the department is targeting resources to support school improvement achieved through high-quality instruction and interventions.”
The Iowa School Performance Profiles, launched in 2018, meets state and federal requirements to publish report cards reflecting the performance of all public schools.
