- Monitor and assure that current year student performance shows progress relative to progress shown in comparable districts.
- Monitor and assure that achievement/opportunity gaps are closing.
- Monitor and assure the progress of students participating in special district programs.
- Monitor and assure that student growth exceeds average student growth in Washington State and is comparable to student growth in other high performing, neighboring districts.
- Monitor and assure that the district’s instructional program focus enables student to learn the skills attributes, and content knowledge specified within the district’s Student Profile and supports the accomplishment of performance targets for the indicators associated with the Student Learning Milestones.
- Monitor and assure that each school’s Continuous Improvement Process Plan supports the accomplishment of the performance targets for the indicators associated with the Student Learning Milestones.
- Be disaggregated by groups (ethnic, free and reduced lunch, gender, program);
- Include the length of time the measure has been reported;
- Be reported district wide, built upon actual individual student performance data; and,
- Where appropriate show a progression of class performance over time and show a progression of cohort data over time.

- Multi-year report card score data for each interdisciplinary content presented as percent of students at standard (elementary 3 and above and secondary C) available through the data dashboard;
- Multi-year report card score data for each interdisciplinary skill and attribute available through the data dashboard;
- Multi-year by class data on large scale measures which measure the content area;
- Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS);
