School Performance Profile results posted
HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Department of Education has released the new School Performance Profiles for several schools, which show the academic performance of the state’s public schools. Some school’s profiles are not yet complete due to missing information from the Keystone Exams, but several area schools report cards have been posted at www.paschoolperformance.org . The School Performance Profile replaces the Adequate Yearly Progress report as part of the No Child Left Behind Act.
In our region, Lewisburg schools continue to be very successful. Kelly Elementary received a score of 91.1 out of a possible 100, while Linntown received a 92. Data was not yet available for the middle or high schools.
