i
The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted many facets of education including instruction and assessment during the 2020-2021 school year. These disruptions may have influenced a student’s opportunity to learn, motivation and/or assessment administration conditions. Results presented should not be considered comparable to prior years.
There are no new A-F letter grades for districts and schools because assessments were not administered in 2019-2020 and growth could not be calculated.
