School Performance Report

The Annual Performance Report (APR) is a required publication that includes academic and performance data for all Indiana school corporations

The report cards replace the state’s previous accountability system in which the state assigned A through F grades to measure a school’s quality. School grades have been effectively suspended since 2018 when Indiana shifted from ISTEP to a new state standardized test and later grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic.
