The Every Students Succeeds Act accountability system was designed, in consultation with stakeholders and detailed in New Jersey’s approved ESSA State Plan, to assist schools and local educational agencies in preparing students for postsecondary success. An overview of the 2022-2023 accountability system was outlined in an Oct. 4, 2023, broadcast.
In a new broadcast, the NJDOE announced the opening of the embargo period for LEA and school leads to access and review their 2023 ESSA Accountability Profiles. The profiles provide data for each of New Jersey’s accountability indicators and show whether student groups met annual ESSA accountability targets and standards.
Accessing and Using the Profiles
The 2023 ESSA Accountability Profiles may be accessed through the ESSA Data folder in Homeroom. LEA and school administrators will need to log in to this folder to gain access to the profiles.
All information contained in the 2023 ESSA Accountability profiles is embargoed. Therefore, the information contained in the profiles may not be shared with the media or public until it is released by the NJDOE through the 2022-2023 School Performance Reports.
Once the link to the profiles is selected, users will be routed to the “Overview” page of the profile, which is also the first tab in the horizontal navigation bar at the top of the page. On this page, select the County and LEA (or district) from the dropdown menus at the top of the page. The default school will be the LEA’s profile, or the district-level data. Use the dropdown menu under “School” to view the profile for a specific school within the LEA. The remaining tabs on the top navigation bar provide more detailed information for each accountability indicator, including outcomes and annual targets for each student group. Simply click on a tab to view how the LEA or school performed on each indicator.
The latest advisory also includes detailed information on student-level data spreadsheets and details on reviewing ESSA Accountability Profiles, how LEA administrators can file an appeal if an error is identified in documented, grounds for an appeal and more.
Refer to the full advisory for complete information.
