Central Bucks’ acting superintendent will give an update on the state’s new School Performance Profile during a meeting Tuesday.
The School Performance Profile, new this year, includes mainly data from PSSA assessments and Keystone Exams, explained Paul Beltz, the district’s supervisor of reading, federal programs and elementary technology.
According to Pennsylvania Department of Education website, the School Performance Profile “provides the public with a comprehensive overview of student academic performance in every Pennsylvania public school building, including traditional public schools, charter schools, cyber charter schools and career and technology centers.”
The School Performance Profile was created to serve three purposes, according to the state. The information will be used for:
- Federal accountability for Title I schools under the state’s approved federal No Child Left Behind waiver
- The new teacher and principal evaluation system that was signed into law in 2012
- To provide the public with information on how public schools across Pennsylvania are academically performing.
The Pennsylvania School Performance Profile will be released annually each fall starting this year.
More information will be available at Tuesday's school board meeting, scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Central Bucks Educational Services Center, 16 Welden Drive. Click here to view the full agenda.
