Last year. Redmond School District developed its own Performance Meter defining key indicators to continually measure and guide improvement efforts. The indicators are centered on the District goals for graduation, academic achievement, attendance, and teacher and principal effectiveness.

 Redmond School District is committed to a focus on performance-based measures to evaluate and improve student achievement.  The targets in the RSD Performance Meter will act as a guidepost to help ensure the work continues toward the District’s promise of all students graduating from Redmond School District college prepared and career ready.
