The STAR Framework gives families, educators, policymakers, and the community the opportunity to broaden understanding of school performance and growth and to share common data across schools. The STAR Framework is designed to help school communities celebrate successes, focus discussions, identify areas for support, and inform strategic planning.
The School Transparency and Reporting (STAR) Framework is DC's school accountability system. Schools receive a rating of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest, based on their performance across multiple metrics. A school that does not meet the minimum population size to generate a STAR rating is shown as 'Not Applicable'. Explore this data using the links below to review performance by student group or click on the School Framework tab above to explore performance within each measure.

School Support Designations
Comprehensive Support 1
Schools that score in the bottom 5 percent of the total number of points on the STAR Framework as compared to their peers are identified for additional school supports. This designation is made every three years and requires schools to work with their community, educators, parents, and other partners to develop a plan aligned to the needs of their students and school. OSSE makes available significant additional supports and financial supports for schools to develop and implement these plans.
