The NYS Education Department releases School Report Cards on every public school and district in the state. Based on some key assessments taken by students in New York public schools, the report cards provide achievement data on districts and schools, as compared to their past years' performances and to other similar schools. Report cards are released each spring for the previous school year.
New York State mandates that all public school districts offer Academic Intervention Services (AIS) to any student who is falling behind in meeting state standards. Students are identified for AIS according to their performance on the state ELA, math, and science exams in grades 3-8. RCS students who score in Performance Levels 1 and 2 are eligible to receive AIS in the designated subject area.
The RCS School District is working to ensure that our
students are well prepared for the competitive workplace and continuing
education. Participation in the New York State assessments in grades 3
through 8 is one piece of this complex puzzle. These state assessments
are one of the few opportunities we have to more clearly compare our
students’ growth and achievement to other students within the district
and throughout New York State. Your child will be competing against
these other boys and girls when he/she enters higher education or the
