Morey SPF Rating 2019

Hello Morey Families,

The annual Denver Public Schools School Performance Framework (SPF) was released on Friday. The SPF is like a report card, letting us know where a school is making progress and where we need to focus improvements. Our school report card puts special emphasis on student academic growth, or how much progress students have made from one year to the next. In DPS, we believe how much kids grow is more important than where they start.

This year’s SPF rating for Morey is “Yellow: Accredited on Watch.” The SPF measures many important aspects of what we know makes a great school – such as how satisfied students and parents are, how much students have improved their scores on state tests from year to year, and how well the school serves and challenges all of its students.

Morey is “Green: Meets Expectations” on both Student Status and Growth, but was “Yellow” on the Academic Gaps indicator. Even though the Status and Growth were “Green,” schools cannot receive an overall “Green: Meets Expectations” or “Blue: Distinguished” rating if they are not at least “Green” on the Academic Gaps indicator. DPS has placed an emphasis on making sure schools are closing the opportunity gaps for our students who have been historically underserved in our schools, including students of color, students in poverty, English language learners and students with special needs.

Morey’s “Achievement Gap” data reveals that our students of color and students in poverty are not growing and achieving academic proficiency levels at the same rate as our other students. Due to this fact, we are 5% points away from achieving a “Green” overall rating.

Here at Morey, we are committed to ensuring all our students are growing and achieving at high rates. We will work with our staff to make sure we are targeting instruction to close gaps and make sure all students are achieving at those high levels.

Morey is rated as “Green: Meets Expectations” on the state SPF from the Colorado Department of Education.
