Student Data and Reporting

There are many types of data that support student learning—and they’re so much more than test scores. But individual data points don’t give the full picture needed to support the incredibly important education goals of parents, students, educators, and policymakers. See the types of data that can come together—under requirements like privacy and security—to form a full picture of student learning. When used effectively, data empowers everyone.
  • PowerSchool Parent/Student Portal

    The PowerSchool Parent Portal allows parents, guardians, students, and other appropriate individuals to view information contained in the ACPS PowerSchool student information system (SIS). Some of the types of information available through this portal are: school announcements, attendance, grades (current and historical), SOL student reports, and schedules.
  • Statistics & Reports

    VDOE reports a variety of data on public education in the commonwealth, including information on enrollment, demographics, student achievement, finances and safety.

    Report cards for schools, school divisions and the commonwealth provide detailed information about the quality of learning and instruction, including state and federal accountability ratings, grade-by-grade data on student achievement, graduation rates and teacher qualifications.
  • School Quality Profile

    School Quality Profiles are a new way to look at the performance of Virginia’s public schools. School Quality Profiles were developed by the state Board of Education in response to the 2015 Virginia General Assembly, which directed the board to redesign online reports for schools and school divisions to more effectively communicate to parents and the public about the status and achievements of the Virginia’s public schools. School Quality Profiles are available for all schools, school divisions, and for the state.
  • SOL Pass Rates & Other Test Results

    Virginia's system of support for schools and accountability for student outcomes includes a commitment to provide usable data to the public.
  • Accreditation & Federal Reports

    Virginia public schools receive annual state and federal accountability ratings based on the performance of students on state assessments in English, mathematics and science and on other measures of quality and performance.

    The state Board of Education’s revised Regulations Establishing Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia (SOA), support continuous improvement for all schools and college, career and civic readiness for all students.

    Federal accountability benchmarks, as outlined in the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

  • School Climate Reports

    The Code of Virginia requires school divisions to submit data to VDOE on incidents of discipline, crime and violence (DCV). Current reports contain selected comparisons to prior years. DCV data are used also to complete federal reports required by the Gun-Free Schools Act of 1994 (GFSA) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). GFSA requires annual reporting of the number of students suspended or expelled statewide for possessing or bringing firearms on school property. IDEA contains requirements for reporting disciplinary actions involving students with disabilities.
