A notice from U.S. Department of Education (ED)
The COVID-19 pandemic prompted the U.S. Department of Education (ED) to offer states a waiver of all federally required assessments, summative designations, and many reporting requirements for the Illinois Report Card for the 2019-20 school year. View the approved ED waiver application requested by ISBE.
The ED ruling:
- Waived all federally required assessments in the 2019-20 school year;
- Waived the requirement to provide summative designations and identify schools for targeted and comprehensive support in the 2019-20 school year; and
- Waived the requirement to report on accountability indicators on the 2019-20 school year Report Card.
The federal waiver impacts the majority of metrics typically reported on the At-a-Glance. Therefore, the 2020 Ata-Glance is not being produced.
