    The PA School Performance Profile serves several purposes:
     
    ~ Provide a building level score for facilitators, as part of the Educator Effectiveness System
    ~ Provide parents with comparative measures for the school/district of residence, neighboring school/districts and schools/districts across the state
    ~ Inform the public of the academic performance measures of each school, comprehensive career and technical center, cyber charter and charter
       school in Pennsylvania
    ~ Offer a resource for districts to communicate and compare performance, analyze performance indicators as related to achievement, and encourage
       best practice
             * Communicate performance to various constituencies
             * Employ as an analysis tool to inform goal setting, planning, and allocating resources to improve learner achievement
             * Compare performance to local schools
             * Compare performance to schools with similar demographics
             * Encourage implementation of best practices
     
    The PA School Performance Profile will provide a quantitative academic score based upon a 100-point scale for Educator Effectiveness (facilitator evaluation) ratings.  Scores are calculated based upon defined weighted data elements.  If a school has insufficient data to calculate a representative score, the display area will reflect that circumstance and adjust total points accordingly.

    Fast Facts
    While not included in the calculation of grades, Fast Facts provide demographic and other relevant information for each component.  District Fast Facts include such items as district enrollment, number of schools, average years of teaching experience, and geographic size of district.  Links to related agencies, such as career and technical centers and intermediate units, are available.  School Fast Facts include similar information but are school specific (e.g., school enrollment, average years of teaching experience, school enrollment data).
