Report card on Pennsylvania schools is set for Thursday barring any unforeseen issues arising at the last minute, according to the state Department of Education.
The department is expected to release the School Performance Profiles that provide parents, taxpayers, educators and students with a look at how well their school performed in 2013-14 on various measures.
The profiles provide information on graduation rate, attendance rate, promotion rate, student’s academic growth and various other measures. Along with that, each school will receive an academic score.
New to this year’s profiles is a trend line that will include information about a school’s performance on the various indicators from the 2012-13 school year. The plan is to ultimately show a five-year trend line on each school’s performance, said department spokesman Tim Eller.
