Updates on School Accountability 2020-2021
School Report Cards and the School Accountability System are an essential part of keeping teachers, students, parents, and the community informed on the progress of their schools. RIDE plans to release accountability results for the 2020-21 school year in Fall 2021, but some of the measures will be affected by COVID-19. For example, to support public health guidance that it is especially important to stay home when students and teachers are sick, RIDE intends to remove the student and teacher absenteeism measures from the accountability system for 2020-21.

In response to questions about school accountability for 2020-21, RIDE has posted a FAQ document on 2021 school accountability.  RIDE will continue updating this document throughout the fall as schools reopen and we receive additional clarity on requirements from the US Department of Education and feedback fromstakeholders.

RIDE Professional Learning Offerings

RIDE continues to commit to helping RI schools and districts strengthen their professional learning systems and practices. Therefore, RIDE has compiled a diverse list of no-cost options for professional learning available to RI educators throughout the week of August 24-28, 2020. We hope both the synchronous and asynchronous offerings provided around health, safety, wellness, and instruction will enhance opportunities for educators, administrators, and staff alike. To maximize time now afforded to educators due to the later start to the school year, we are working with our providers to determine if they can repeat their synchronous offerings, and/or offer new options, also during the week of 8/31-9/4. Therefore, we encourage users to revisit this list throughout the next couple of weeks for the latest information on professional learning offerings. Please email PL@ride.ri.gov for any professional learning questions or concerns.
