The 2019 accreditation results are up.
- Please recall that these ratings are so thoroughly rigged as to be bogus.
- VDOE calls them the “2019-2020 Accreditation Ratings” because they supposedly apply to the current school year, not the 2019 school year for which they (purportedly) measure performance.
- In the interest of honest reporting, the tables below say “Flunked” where VDOE says “Accredited With Conditions.” That official euphemism allows everybody to say a school is “accredited” when it actually flunked, even by the current, rigged standards.
Here, then are the school totals for the state, Richmond, three peer cities, and poor Petersburg:
Or, expressing the numbers percentages of the totals:
Richmond is up this year as to the percentage of schools accredited, from 43.2% to 45.5% (one school difference), and also improved on the percentage flunking, from 54.5% to 50% (two schools).
Caveat: The table below shows that both of the schools “Accredited Pending Review of Alternative Plan” deserve to flunk.
Richmond had 2.3% of the schools in Virginia this year and 16.7% of the schools that flunked.
Finally, here is a summary of the “indicators” for the Richmond schools as to the basic subjects as well as truancy, graduation rate, and dropout rate.
A reader (THE reader?) tells me to say what L1 et al. mean. L1 means the school met the requirement, such as it is; L2 means it met a relaxed requirement; L3 is the laggards. It’s more complicated than that; details here.
In cases that are all L1 here but the school flunked, e.g. Albert Hill, you can dig into the complete table or the “ profile ” to see what drove the rating. Albert Hill is all L1 on this table but flunked on the achievement gaps.
Despite, appalling pass rates this year, Fairfield Court was accredited on a three year average (that included two years of excellent numbers that almost certainly were based on cheating). The current school year should resolve that anomaly.
