A quality school is one wherein students are learning and will be ready for college or careers. CPS measures school quality with a tool called the School Quality Rating Policy (SQRP). This measures many different factors including: attendance, student academic growth, and student performance in terms of grades.

Every year, all schools receive a level rating that determines their accountability status. There are five level ratings:

– Level 3: Far below average performance

– Level 2: Below average performance

– Level 2+: Average performance

– Level 1: Above average performance

– Level 1+: Far above average performance
