2017 Academic Achievement & Growth Report & Resources
Academic Achievement & Growth Report (Interactive Version)
Presentation Document (PDF)The mission of the Pine-Richland School District is to focus on learning for every student every day. The vision at PRSD emphasizes the fact that learning is reflected in both achievement and growth. In the fifth year of publication, the format and structure of this report have been refined each year to provide descriptive statistics and analyses across a series of standardized assessments. For the 2017 report, we have again included PSSA performance level comparisons with a Pennsylvania top decile benchmark. We also strengthened a focus on action by revising the structure of recommendations (i.e., key personnel, timeline, and major action steps).
As a disclaimer to all who review this report, it is important to note the narrow focus on standardized achievement test results (i.e., PSSA, Keystone Exams, SAT, ACT, and AP). These are important and high stakes assessments. However, we also know that measures of school effectiveness and learning are far more comprehensive than the information in this report. Those measures include: classroom-based assessments; school climate; participation in extra- and co-curricular activities; graduation rates; attendance; discipline; post-secondary readiness; and more.
In 2017 - 2018, we are focused on making our mission actionable. We have asked, “How do we focus on academic learning for every student every day?” The academic system at Pine-Richland School District is illustrated by the following image:
