Chronically Underperforming Schools and Districts

Chronically Underperforming Schools and Districts

Chronically Underperforming is the most serious category in Massachusetts' accountability system, representing receivership. The Commissioner may place an underperforming or chronically underperforming at the expiration of its redesign plan if the school has failed to improve as required by the goals, benchmarks, or timetable of its redesign plan; or if district conditions make it unlikely that the school will make significant improvement without a chronically underperforming designation.
