The NYC Department of Education realeased its annual progress reports for high schools Monday.
The grades were based on performance on standardized tests, but also how well students are doing on a day-to-day basis including progress toward graduation, coursework and attendance.
The scores also reflect morale, incorporating the results from surveys of parents, students and teachers about their schools.
The DOE gave schools extra credit for progress made by students with disabilities and ESL students and for high graduation rates by black and Latino boys who entered high school struggling academically.
A change this year is that the reports also took into account how ready students are for college by looking at how many students are taking advanced courses (and how well they do in them) and how many enroll in a college or other postsecondary program.
Schools that get three C's in a row or a single year's grade of D or F could be closed. In Brooklyn, John Dewey High School was saved from the chopping block by earning a B after four straight years of C’s.
Citywide, there was a small (7 percent) jump in schools earning As and Bs compared to last year. In all, 142 schools received an A, 159 schools received a B, 88 schools received a C, 21 schools received a D, and 10 schools received an F.
New schools, schools that did not yet have a graduating class, and schools that are being closed were not graded.
