HELENA— The Montana Office of Public Instruction announced today that report cards for Montana schools, districts, and the state are now publicly available. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires state, district, and school-level data to be displayed on report cards in a concise, understandable, and accessible manner for families and communities.
The report cards can be viewed along with additional information on the OPI’s new report card webpage. Report cards showcase student achievement data, college and career readiness, school finances, and school climate data.
“Montana’s report cards reflect extensive input from families, communities, and educators across the state,” State Superintendent Elsie Arntzen said Monday. “This new educational tool will allow further family and community engagement with schools to create better outcomes for students.”
