NOTE: The PSSA, administered in grades 3 through 8 in English Language Arts and Mathematics, was fully aligned to the more rigorous PA Core Standards for the first time in 2015. As a result, PSSA results for 2015 were not used to recalculate School Performance Profiles for elementary and middle school buildings during the last school year. Only schools with an 11th grade configuration were subject to a new SPP calculation for 2014-15.
The Pennsylvania School Performance Profile offers a web-based resource for schools to communicate performance results to various constituencies and assists districts and schools in aligning and focusing resources for continuous improvement.
This PA School Performance Profile also serves several other purposes:
