Today, the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) recognized 526 public schools across the state as top performers in multiple areas of progress in school performance.

The recognition is a key part of the state’s new North Star accountability system that aims to create more equitable and well-rounded learning opportunities for all students across the state.

Using data from the five key indicators that make up North Star — achievement and progress on state reading and math tests over time, progress toward English language proficiency, graduation rates and consistent attendance — the state is better able to identify and learn from schools that consistently perform at high levels across multiple domains.
