The Progress Reports were the main accountability tool used by the New York City Department of Education from 2007 through 2013. Progress Reports graded each school with an A, B, C, D, or F and were based on student progress (60%), student performance (25%), and school environment (15%). Scores were based on comparing results from one school to a peer group of up to 40 schools with the most similar student population and to all schools citywide.
The School Quality Reports replace the Progress Report. Progress Reports and Progress Report Overviews for previous years are still available by searching for the school in the main school search tool, then clicking on the “statistics and budget” page.

Progress Report Citywide Results
Spreadsheets with citywide results from previously released Progress Reports can be found in the table below. There is also a multi-year summary that covers all six years of the Progress Report in a single sheet.
2006-07 was the first year of the Progress Report. School performance data for years before then (back to 1998-99) can be found on the New York State school report card website
(look for the "school report card database" - not the reports themselves which are mostly missing).
The methods of the Progress Report are described in the Educator’s Guide to the Progress Report. If you have additional questions, you can contact email@example.com.
Progress Report Changes
The Progress Report was reviewed and revised each year through a four-step process:
Step 1: Release “proposed changes” document
Step 2: Collect feedback from stakeholders on the proposed changes
Step 3: Release “final changes” and "responses to feedback"
Step 4: Publish new reports and Educator’s Guides
High School Preparatory Course Certification (HSPCC) and College Preparatory Course Certification (CPCC)
The High School Readiness Metrics on the Middle School Progress Report and the College and Career Preparatory Course Index (CCPCI) on the high school Progress Report award schools credit for preparing students for the next level. The High School Preparatory Course Certification (HSPCC) and College Preparatory Course Certification (CPCC) processes allow schools to expand the range of courses for which schools can receive credit on these metrics.
New applications for CPCC/HSPCC will not be accepted for the 2014-15 school year. Schools that are currently certified as of the end of 2013-14 will still receive credit in the appropriate metrics on the 2013-14 School Quality Reports, and schools that received multi-year certifications will still receive credit in all of those years. Later this year, school leaders will be engaged to discuss the future of these programs. If these programs are continued in 2015-16, any expiring courses that did not have a chance to renew their applications in 2014-15 will automatically be extended.
