Welcome to Information Works!

Welcome to the 7th edition of Information Works!, Rhode Island's annual report on public education.

The report cards show the results of the 2003 state assessments, socioeconomic data, financial data on school spending, and much more.

To begin, you can currently search for an individual School Report Card. The User’s Guide gives detailed information on all the charts and graphs in these reports.

The State Report Card provides data on the state as a whole, and a Spanish translation is now available.
