2020 School Corporation Annual Performance Report (APR)

School Results

General Explanations
The APR is a report on the performance of schools and school corporations (districts) in your area. The
goal is to provide information regarding the progress schools are making to help students become
college-and–career ready. Where possible, this report contains three years of data to show trends – not
just this year’s results. In addition, the State Average is also shown for comparison purposes. There
are additional indicators that are available on the Indiana Department of Education’s Web site
(inview.doe.in.gov), including data broken out by different student subgroups, such as race, gender,
income level and special education.
