Quarter 3 Ending April 3, 2019

It’s hard to believe that we are approaching the end of quarter 3.  Students will be receiving Progress Reports on Friday, April 5, 2019.  These are just a snapshot in time and provide some information as to student’s progress.

Dear RINI Community,

The Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) has released the new school accountability system that is required under federal law, ESSA.  There are some very valuable metrics included in the report platform and there are some that RINI scored fairly well on.  However, the rating system, as expressed by RIDE, was created for schools to be as good as their lowest rating to provide laser focus on areas to improve. We will analyze these metrics thoroughly to inform our strategic decisions that will help students achieve even greater outcomes.   Continue reading “RINI Family Update”
