School Performance Profile (SPP) - What Is It?

The School Performance Profile (SPP) is the measure by which schools in Pennsylvania are held accountable for student academic performance. According to the state, the School Performance Profile is meant to serve several purposes:
  • Provide a building level score for teachers, as part of the Educator Effectiveness System.
  • Provide parents with performance measures for the school/district of residence, neighboring schools/districts, and schools/districts across the state.
  • Inform the public of the academic performance measures of each district, school, comprehensive career and technical center, cyber charter and charter school in Pennsylvania.
  • Use as a tool to inform goal-setting, planning and resource allocation to improve student achievement.
The SPP was developed and based on research and best practice, as well as feedback received through focus groups held across the state. It is meant to be a more comprehensive system of evaluating district and school performance because it is based on a number of indicators beyond PSSA (Pennsylvania System of Assessment) scores.
