Local Education Agency

District of Columbia Public Schools

A local education agency (LEA) is an organization that operates publicly funded schools. In DC, our LEAs include DC Public Schools (DCPS) and more than 60 charter organizations.

Star Rating

The School Transparency and Reporting (STAR) Framework is DC's school accountability system. Each school receives a rating of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest, based on its performance across multiple metrics. Not Applicable means the school did not meet the minimum population size to generate a score or was not in operation during the previous school year.
