ESSA Federal Report

  • Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)/Future Ready PA Index

    For the first time, the Pennsylvania Department of Education released the Future Ready PA Index as a method of evaluating schools in a more holistic manner than the School Performance Profile (SPP) alone, by utilizing a dashboard model to highlight how schools are performing and showing progress on multiple measures (PDE, 2018). The dashboard elements are designed to emphasize student growth measures focusing on all learners; English language (EL)  acquisition among EL students; career awareness instruction beginning at the elementary level; unequal weighting of content areas in the current SPP; indicators of student success after graduation; student access to course offerings such as AP, International Baccalaureate (IB),, college credit, and CTE programs of study; inclusion of locally-selected reading assessment (Grade 3) and math assessments (Grade 7) as additional snapshots of student progress; and on the offering of career pathways.
