Please see information sent from Interim Superintendent Laura Perille about Boston Public Schools' School Quality Frameworks (SQF):
- Boston Public Schools will continue to use the School Quality Framework (SQF) for the purposes of school choice and student assignment for the upcoming school choice season. Data from 2016-17 and 2017-18 were used to calculate metrics and new tiers.
- Most schools received a school quality tier under the new framework. However, there are some schools—such as early education centers as well as special education and alternative schools—that are not given a score because they do not have students who take standardized tests or they are specialized schools.
- Updated SQF tiers and Quality Scores will be available to families on Discover BPS and in Welcome Centers beginning on November 17, 2018.
