The Report Cards Are Here ... How Did Your School Do?


BUFFALO, N.Y. - The New York State Education Department announced on Thursday the release of 2009-10 School Report Cards for all schools and districts throughout New York.

Results for the Buffalo City School District are located here.

In addition to school and district information, there is also a School Report Card for the entire State. The compete set of Report Cards is available on the New York State Education Department website.

Much of the data contained in the School Report Cards has already been publicly released throughout the past year, but the Report Cards represent a single place for finding all of that information. Previously released information includes:

  • Grades 3-8 Mathematics and English Language Arts test results for 2009-10;
  • School and district graduation rates for the 2005 cohort (i.e., the group of students who entered ninth grade in September 2005);
  • Schools that have failed to make Adequate Yearly Progress and that have been placed on the Schools in Need of Improvement (SINI) list;

The previously released data and press releases can be accessed here.

Data contained in the 2009-10 School Report Cards, but not previously released, includes:

  • The percentage of core classes taught by Highly Qualified Teachers;
  • School and district performance on Regents Exams including, for the first time, performance on the Regents Examination in Algebra 2/Trigonometry;
  • Annual testing results Regents Competency Tests (RCTs), Second Language Proficiency exams, and NYS English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT);
  • Grades 4 and 8 Science test results for 2009-10;
  • Grades 5 and 8 Social Studies test results for 2009-10;
  • Accountability data for the 2009-10 school year “disaggregated” by subgroups;
  •  Annual high school completers and non-completers, post secondary plans, and CTE results.

Please note that, for the 2009-2010 school year results, the Education Department raised the English Language Arts and Math “cut scores” for the “Basic” and “Proficient” performance levels.  Raising the cut scores in this manner caused a statewide drop in the percent of students scoring at proficiency levels 3 and 4.  Additional information about the change in cut scores can be found at the following locations:
