School Accreditation and Request to Reconsider Form

Each school year, districts must submit to the Department the accreditation category that the district has assigned to each school and the performance framework used by the district for that accreditation assignment, including evidence of the school's level of attainment on the State's key performance indicators: Academic Achievement, Academic Growth, and Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness. Districts may use the State's school performance framework, in which case the CDE plan type serves as the accreditation category. Alternatively, districts may use their own local, more comprehensive and rigorous framework, in which case it must include the same performance indicators and give the greatest weight to growth and, for high schools, postsecondary and workforce readiness.

In addition, each school year, if a district disagrees with the Department's initial assignment of an accreditation category for the district or if the district disagrees with any of the Department's initial assignments of a school plan type for any of the district's schools, the district may submit additional information for CDE's consideration.

Districts must submit this information using the School Accreditation and Request to Reconsider form by October 16th. The form must be signed by the district superintendent and the local board chair.
