Summative designations help families and communities understand how well schools are serving all students. Illinois has four summative designations: Exemplary School, Commendable School, Underperforming School, and Lowest-Performing School. Underperforming schools and Lowest-Performing schools receive additional funding and supports to build local capacity and improve student outcomes. Multiple measures of school performance and growth determine a school’s designation. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act requires states to provide a summative designation to each school with the required indicators, beginning in 2018. ISBE includes school designations annually in the Illinois Report Card at www.illinoisreportcard.com.​
