PA School Performance
The Pennsylvania Department of Education released the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile (SPP). This public site, which can be found by visiting http://www.paschoolperformance.org, provides an academic performance score for public schools in the state.
The 2013-14 School Performance Profile scores have been calculated based upon 2013-14 assessment data, including PSSA, PASA, and Keystone Exam performance as well as progress schools have made in closing the achievement gap in science.
The School Performance Profile is based upon many data points, which are factored into the scoring:
In addition to the scoring aspect of the site, the public can compare schools within their geographical area and across the state. For schools, the site also offers supports to consider as they identify needs associated with the performance measures in the School Performance Profile.
