PDE - PA School Performance Profile

Effective Fall 2013 PA public schools' achievement are now reported in a new manner. The District AYP is no longer graded/reported as a whole. Each school gets its own report card (Performance Profile) with a score out of a possible 100. Look on the right hand of the school's Academic Performance tab for: reading, math, science and writing scores on grade level. The individual grades achievement are also no longer being reported. Only whole school data is reported with the exception of 3rd grade reading. High School and some Middle School students are taking the new Keystone Exams in Literature, Algebra 1 and Biology at the end of the course. PSSAs spring exams continue for grades 3rd-8th. PSSAs were discontinued for 11th grade.

Curious or Concerned about the Keystone Exams and Common Core Standards?

Get the FACTS - PA Sec. of Education Carolyn Dumaresq on new Core Standards

PA has gotten a NCLB exemption from the Feds. AYP under the No Child Left Behind Act will no longer be reported. Students in grades 3rd through 8th will still take the 4 PSSAs. (reading, writing, math and science) Older students will take 3 Keystone Exams instead. The State's graduation project mandate has been abolished.
