The Virgin Islands School Report Card offers you important information about the progress of the Virgin Islands public education system at the territory, district, and school levels.
The Virgin Islands Department of Education is transforming its accountability system. On December 10, 2015, President Barack Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which reauthorized and updated the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The new law provides states more authority on how to best educate students, test students’ achievement levels, provide students with the supports and interventions they need, and how to best track a state’s progress to accomplishing these goals
The 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2019-20 school years are considered a transition period as the new ESSA law is implemented. During the transition period, the VIDE will continue to report on the academic performance of students across the territory. Full implementation of the Virgin Islands’ accountability state plan under ESSA will take place in the 2019-2020 school year.
