The Every Student Succeeds Act, or ESSA, the main federal law for K-12 public education, requires that states hold public schools accountable for how students achieve. New York State established a set of indicators to measure school and district performance.
The accountability system classifies schools into one of three categories: In Good Standing, a Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) school, or a Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) school.
School District Designations
Good Standing District
A district in Good Standing demonstrates success in all performance goals.
Districts that struggled to prepare some of their student subgroups on some or all indicators are identified as Target Districts.
