This presentation, shared at the December 8, 2014 School Board meeting, reflects PSSA, Keystone Exam, and AP Exam achievement data from the 2013-14 school year. The presentation commences with a comparison of our District's achievement to the aggregate achievement across the State and provides an analysis of the District's performance trends on state and national assessments over multiple years. The presentation concludes with an overview of the components of the School Performance Profile (SPP) and corresponding profile data for each school. The SPP building scores are based on several measures of performance including state test scores, data that measures how much progress students make in a year, graduation rates, attendance rates, and more. Wissahickon's student achievement indicates specific areas to be targeted and the significant strengths that exist within many of our education programs.
