The Alaska Department of Education and Early Development released this year’s school ratings earlier this month. Dillingham Schools faired very well, improving across the board. This is part of the Alaska School Performance Index.
The ASPI was adopted by the state in 2013. The index rates schools on a 100 point scale. The points are awarded based on test scores, improvement on tests, attendance, standardized tests and graduation rates. The schools are the given ratings based on a scale of one-five, five being the best.
