Please interpret our individual district productivity evaluations with a heavy dose of caution. The connection between spending and educational achievement is complex, and our data does not capture everything that goes into creating an effective school system. Our data comes from the 2011 school year, the latest available from the U.S. Department of Education, and we're aware that some of the information reported by states has reliability issues. Nevertheless, we believe that our evaluations are the best available given existing data and research methods. You can read more about our methodology here.
We have ranked the educational effectiveness of more than 7,000 school districts in almost 40 states. Please use this online tool to benchmark the performance of your district—and approach our evaluations with caution.
