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.

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.
