Academic Performance Reports

Every year, school districts in Colorado report about their performance to their communities, based on requirements in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA). In addition, state law has required that districts report district accreditation information.

Both the information required by federal law and district accreditation information is now available on the Colo
rado Department of Education’s Web site.

There, the district profile for Crowley County School District includes the following information:

Assessment Data

The Colorado Growth Model provides a common understanding of how individual students and groups of students progress from year to year on the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP) toward state standards based on where each individual student begins. Results are dis-aggregated by race/ethnicity, English language learners, economically disadvantaged students and students with disabilities.

  2. CSAP results by grade level for each school and for the district. Results are dis-aggregated by race/ethnicity, English language learners, economically disadvantaged students and students with disabilities.
