Pennsylvania’s new school accountability system has hit enough bumps that the state is delaying the public release of the first results.

The release date has been moved from Monday to Friday of next week.

Even when the results come out, some data for some schools — primarily high schools — won’t be included in the results because of questions about its accuracy. The state plans to issue a revised report for those schools in January after corrected data is available.

Tim Eller, spokesman for the state Department of Education, said, “The department has provided additional time to local education agencies to review their data to ensure it is accurate and to get accustomed to the new system.”
