The Illinois Report Card is an annual report released by the Illinois State Board of Education that shows how the state, and each school and district, are progressing on a wide range of educational goals. The Report Card was redesigned in 2013 to be more user-friendly and to provide data on a wider range of indicators than previous versions. The Report Card now offers a more complete picture of student and school performance in order to inform and empower families and communities as they support their local schools.
There are two versions of the Illinois Report Card for the state, schools, and districts. The first version is the Classic Report Card. This is a static PDF version of the official Report Card. The second version is the Illinois Interactive Report Card or IIRC. This version is web-based, intuitive, and allows for users to view performance comparisons between school and districts, review trend data, and break data into subcategories.
