The Pennsylvania Department of Education has released the 2013-2014 School Performance Profile (SPP). The PA School Performance Profile is the state's information and support system designed to provide an Academic Performance Score for all public schools in Pennsylvania. This is the second year for this system, which replaces the "Adequate Yearly Progress" measure under No Child Left Behind that was in place for 12 years. New for 2014, the SPP will be used as part of the state's Educator Effectiveness regulations, which use student achievement as a component of teacher and principal evaluations.
