What is the Performance Profile?
Beginning in 2013, school districts across Pennsylvania will now share student academic performance data using a School Performance Profile (SPP). While schools previously received a No Child Left Behind designation of “adequate yearly progress”, public schools will now receive an academic performance score.
 
The School Performance Profile academic performance score is based not only on test scores but many other factors that signal student achievement. A student growth factor measures how well students are progressing toward proficiency in state assessments. Also measured are graduation and attendance rates, degree of rigorous course offerings at the secondary level. In the last reported SPP year (2012-2013), only 17% of schools across the state scored a 90 or higher. In Peters Township, 4 of our 5 schools have achieved at a score of 90 or above in both years and were recognized with the PA Governor's Award for Excellence.
 
A summary of Peters Township’s scores is listed above and overall our scores are excellent and reflect the high standards that our parents and community expect from our schools. Schools are rated on a 100 point scale, and schools have the ability to earn extra credit points. Secondary schools  may earn up to 7 extra credit points for advanced achievement based on Keystone and Advanced Placement results; while elementary schools may earn fewer extra credit points based on advanced scores on PSSA tests alone. Administrators and data teams within the schools are looking closely at the data to determine where improvement can be made and what strategies are working best that can be employed in other areas of the District.
