District and School Accountability

Understanding Accountability Measures

The Massachusetts School and District Accountability system, established in 1999, is designed to measure the progress schools and districts are making toward helping all students reach high levels of achievement. A district or school's Accountability and Assistance Level is used to appropriately target interventions and supports, and recognize or reward excellence.
