Also, parents, students, teachers, and school officials in all 50 states now can find out how their local schools are performing by visiting a new national website - SchoolMatters.com.


SchoolMatters.com offers parents and teachers immediate access to information about the performance and demographic makeup of their local schools, neighboring schools and districts, and the entire state.


Teachers can use this information as a diagnostic tool to identify areas in need of improvement, as well as identify other schools from which to learn effective practices.  The website also provides valuable comparative tools and benchmarks to monitor relative progress of local schools and districts within the state.
