RNN Data Tool

This data tool allows schools to see how they perform compared to schools with similar poverty. The RNN Data Tool also allows schools to search databases for the highest performing schools with similar poverty. On January 26, 2017, the tool was updated to include all schools in the state and the password to download was removed. Therefore, any school district in the state can now look at data in a new way.
