2022-2023 MCAS & Accountability Data


Dear CPS Community: 

At noon today, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released the MCAS and accountability results for the 2022-2023 school year. We are delighted to share that the district has made tremendous progress in English Language Arts (ELA) and math spanning all grades 3-8 and 10. Overall, we are seeing a return of achievement that is similar to before the COVID pandemic and the percentage of students meeting/exceeding expectations is well above the state in every grade and subject.

% of Students Meeting/Exceeding Expectations: 2023 MCAS





ELA: Grades 3-8



+17 points

ELA: Grade 10



+9 points

Math: Grades 3-8



+12 points

Math: Grade 10



+9 points

Additional highlights of the district-wide data are outlined in our news release.

While the district celebrates the progress that has been made, CPS is keenly aware of the opportunities and areas for growth. When the data is disaggregated, it is evident that CPS continues to experience challenges in achievement among some student demographic groups. As evident in the District Plan’s four main objectives and 12 core initiatives, CPS is deeply committed to closing the opportunity gap and continuing to implement robust, data-driven systems to support each of our students in achieving their full potential. 

  • Teaching and Learning Framework aligns instructional practices across content areas and grade bands.

  • Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) supports students’ academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs, with an emphasis on strong Tier 1 instruction.

  • Implementation of elementary and secondary scheduling guidelines among all K-8 schools.

  • Strategic Tutoring for eligible grade 3-8 students and targeted Math/ELA Acceleration Academies for grades 6-8.

We look forward to having more conversations and keeping our community updated as the work moves forward.

Thank you for your continued support.


Dr. Victoria L. Greer
