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

Targeted Support 1

Schools receiving this designation have at least one student group that is performing at or below the level of the lowest performing schools in DC, which are the schools designated for Comprehensive Support 1. These low performing student groups are defined as "consistently underperforming" and schools will develop a plan, utilizing additional resources and supports to address this identified performance gap. The student group is included in the designation so that a plan can be developed to address the identified gap.
