Illinois School Report Cards

A School-Performance Data Comparison App for Parents

Each year, the Illinois State Board of Education releases “report cards,” detailed analyses of the performance of public schools and school districts in Illinois.

We built the Illinois Schools Report Card app for parents of school-age children, so that they may learn about and compare schools, as well as read the stories we write about school performance.
