Iowa School Performance Profiles

Students at desks

The state has released their annual online reporting tool called the Iowa School Performance Profiles, as required by a federal education law called the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). These profiles reflect how public schools performed on a set of accountability measures, such as results on the statewide assessment, graduation rates, and academic growth.

The tool displays a school’s score based on overall performance, as well as scores based on the performance of subgroups of students. Based on these scores, schools can be identified for additional funding, support, and improvement.

In order to put the information into perspective, below you will find links to the following charts. 

  1. Comparisons between each of Ankeny’s schools to the state average

Key Club Raises Awareness for Homelessness

Key Club recently participated in a Reggie’s Sleep out event, a night to raise awareness and money for the homeless and at-risk youth in Iowa. Due to COVID-19 Drake University has no longer been able to host the event in their stadium but Key Club was able to spend the evening at Ankeny High School learning more about the homelessness in Iowa, picking up trash around the school, and we also made 84 care packages for the Ankeny Service Center. As a club we were able to raise $525, all of which will be donated to Reggie’s Sleep out to help those in need in our community.
