Performance and Accountability

Seattle Public Schools provides detailed information on how each school, and the district overall, is performing and what we are doing to increase academic achievement and close the achievement gap across the district.

SPS performance and accountability reports are produced by the Research, Evaluation and Assessment (REA) department in partnership with the Department of Technology Services (DoTS).  These reports help guide and inform district improvement efforts and provide important information about our schools to our families, community partners, and the broader public.
