On November 14th, the D.C. Public Charter School Board announced the results of the 2014 Performance Management Framework (PMF), an evaluation tool created to assess and monitor charter school performance. The PMF evaluates schools holistically and takes multiple measures into account, including growth and achievement over time, attendance and re-enrollment rates, and “gateway outcomes” like the percentage of students scoring proficient or advanced in math in eighth grade, high school graduation rates, PSAT/SAT scores, and college acceptance rates.
Once again, we are incredibly proud of our results. Here are some highlights:
- All five of KIPP DC’s eligible schools (Promise, KEY, AIM, WILL, and KCP) have been rated Tier 1
- KIPP DC is the largest LEA to have all of its schools rated Tier 1 — 5 of the 22 Tier 1 schools are KIPP DC schools
- KCP, our high school, earned the highest rating of any public charter high school
- Promise earned the highest rating of any public charter elementary school
- For middle schools, KEY earned the second highest rating, AIM earned the third highest rating, and WILL earned the sixth highest rating
- AIM, WILL, and KCP were all recognized for being both high-quality and serving a large percentage of Special Education students
- Promise was recognized for some of the highest reading and math growth of any charter school in the city

Our results are a testament to the hard work of our school leaders, teachers, and students. Congratulations to our KIPPsters and the KIPP DC team!
