Atglen, Pennsylvania – Octorara Area School District announced today that the LEA will use data from Pennsylvania’s School Performance Profile (SPP) to more comprehensively assess the academic performance of each of its schools. While schools previously received a No Child Left Behind designation, public schools will now receive an academic performance score. An online public portal, the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile will now provide demographic data, academic data, and an academic performance score for public schools in the state.
“Unlike previous measures of our schools, the School Performance Profile utilizes many data points to measure our schools’ academic strength,” said Elena Wilson, Director of Curriculum and Instruction. “While we receive a score for our schools, the more important aspect of this resource is that it allows us to acknowledge our strengths and use the profile as a tool for student improvement.”
