What is the School Performance Framework?

The School Performance Framework (SPF) is like a report card for your school. It is a comprehensive system to help schools focus on strengths and areas for targeted improvement. 

The SPF guides schools and the community in setting priorities for improvement with specific groups of students. The report uses color-coded tiers based on the school’s levels of performance in the categories. The SPF guides schools and the community with improvement—aligned to the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The SPF is used by the district to determine specific interventions and support and define the amount of autonomy school receive to make decisions.

​Reports will be released annually for each OUSD school in the fall beginning in 2016. Oakland charter schools will receive their own SPF ratings in future releases.
