LEA Annual Report Cards:

Beginning with 2017-2018 data, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires each local educational agency (LEA) that receives Title I assistance to prepare and disseminate an annual LEA report card. An LEA report card must be concise and presented in an understandable and uniform format for parents.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Indiana received a waiver from calculating Federal Accountability ratings for the 2019-2020 school year. In addition, Indiana has requested a waiver for the 2020-2021 school year as well.

Moran’s Federal Rating from the 2018-2019 school year was Meets Expectations.
