How East Uses Data

At East, our work is focused on enabling students to be empowered graduates and responsible, productive citizens ready for the transition to adulthood. As a part of these efforts, East is developing data-systems to build organizational capacity, support continuous improvement, and ensure the success of ALL students. As a school, we use this information to make decisions about where resources and funding should go, and about what types of supports to provide to teachers, students, and families. We seek to ensure that reporting about school performance is easily accessible to the public.  We hope that parents can use this information to make informed decisions about the education of their children.

School Data

Current school data available here:  Coming soon!
The New York State Education Department reports on school performance through school-level report cards.  These reports contain historical school accountability information including Annual Professional Performance Review Ratings, State-Provided Growth Ratings, assessment scores, enrollment data, graduation rate, and more.
