To hold itself accountable, the Rhode Island Department of Elementary and Secondary Education established annual performance measures to ensure that progress is being made toward reaching each of its 2014 goals. These goals are based on the Strategic Education Plan and the State Scope of Work that is part of our Race to the Top grant. Of the 33 performance measures, 4 were met, 3 were nearly met, and 24 were not met. Two of the performance measures do not have data available at this time.
On the whole, a year of treading water. Bad for Providence elementary schools, better for middle. In PPSD high schools, the only remaining bright spot is E-Cubed, which has managed to avoid being systematically destroyed by the state and city, unlike the rest of their reform cohort.
