AUSL Impact

Through building a college-going culture and climate, our staff has set a high bar for the academic results of our students, and our students have stepped up to meet this challenge.

Three years ago, CPS initiated the School Quality Rating Policy (SQRP), which places schools into one of five rating scales (from highest to lowest: 1+, 1, 2+, 2, 3) to gauge the overall effectiveness of a school. SQRP is based on multiple measures of school results, including standardized assessment scores and attendance rates. Level 2+ is the current threshold to be considered in “good standing” with CPS.

The charts demonstrate the improvement our network has made under SQRP since CPS implemented the policy in School Year 20014.
