North Dakota has a new accountability system reported through NDInsights, more commonly referred to as the “Dashboard.” The Dashboard contains reports that display the performance of school districts, schools, and student groups on a set of state and local measures to assist in identifying strengths, challenges, and areas in need of additional support. North Dakota’s new NDInsights website is designed to help communities across the state access important information about K-12 districts and school – including ours. The North Dakota Dashboard features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English Learner progress and attendance. The Dashboard replaces the former School District Report Card and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) reports. Please note, the data made available to the public masks or hides data for groups with 10 or fewer students to protect confidential information about individual students. For questions concerning K-12 education data, please contact the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction. Web: www.nd.gov/dpi/contact
