School report cards are an important source of information about school performance and accountability. They allow schools to compare data in a consistent way and highlight opportunities for improvement. This report card will show not only the achievement of students overall, but also the progress that disaggregated groups are making in closing achievement gaps. School report card data help Pennsylvania school districts and the Pennsylvania Department of Education focus on specific groups of students who are currently not meeting academic standards.
The report card is designed to ensure that the public is fully informed about school performance, and to promote broader participation and better decision-making by providing a shared source of performance data. This federal initiative is based on the idea that a well-informed public plays an important part in school improvement. Click here to view the report.
