Other state priorities require local methods (local indicators) of measuring progress on the state’s eight priorities. 

    • The State Board of Education (SBE) approved standards for the local indicators districts may use in measuring and reporting progress within the appropriate priority area. The approved performance standards require a local educational agency (LEA) to: 
    • Annually measure progress on the local performance indicator based on locally available data. 
    • Report results at a public meeting of the local governing board. 
    • Report results to the public through the Dashboard.
