    2016 PARCC Results

    (School year 2015-16)
    Interactive analysis - PARCC and FARMs: This analysis groups schools by the percent of students in 2015-16 who were identified as having free or reduced meal status on the official Baltimore City Public Schools’ 2015-16 September enrollment file. Please note that beginning in the 2015-16 school year, all City Schools’ students have transitioned to receiving free lunch under the USDA Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). Therefore, FARMs applications are no longer collected. For 2016 PARCC FARMs comparison purposes, this is determined under CEP guidelines that include students that are directly certified, receive Medicaid, or had a completed FARMs application for the 2014-15 school year.

    Public Charter Schools Policy: Compliance Report Review of SY 2015-16


    City Schools Poverty Measures


    In 2014-15, City Schools joined the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), under which all students would be eligible for free meals, eliminating the paperwork burden associated with collecting Free and Reduced Meals (FARMs) applications. Historically, the proportion of students eligible for FARMs has been the measure used by many school systems as a proxy for poverty. As a result of the transition, City Schools now uses the proportion of children receiving direct services (Direct Certification), including Medicaid as its proxy for poverty and as its substitute FARMs rate for state enrollment reporting. Government programs included in Direct Certification are Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance program (SNAP), homeless students, and students in foster care. This approach undercounts the number of students in circumstances of poverty because it excludes those that would have been previously included in the FARMs count in the reduced meals category based on an district- led application collection process. This data set reports various measures of poverty in City Schools for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 school years.

    School Survey

    The annual School Survey provides the opportunity for students, staff, and families to let school leaders and the district know what is working well at their school and what areas need improvement. Each student in grades 3-12, and each staff member at a school have the opportunity to participate. All parents of students in grades Pre-K-12 also have the opportunity to participate. This survey is anonymous and data is reported at the school and district level.
