For the second year, the Pennsylvania Department of Education is reporting a School Performance Profile (SPP) for schools across the state. The SPP is a building-specific academic score based on many categories. The categories include student performance on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) and Keystone Exams, graduation rate, promotion rate, attendance rate and closing the achievement gap. This score provides a comprehensive overview of a school’s program. Additionally, this score provides the public with a means for comparing the performance of different schools. Once again, the Wilson Schools did well in their overall scores relative to schools across the state of Pennsylvania. The released report reflects both the achievement and the growth of Wilson’s students for the 2013-14 School Year. To read more about Wilson's score, please click here.
When looking at the exemplary scores for Wilson, please take notice of the failing scores for the Cyber Charter schools that exist in Pennsylvania. Here is just one article showing how the Cyber Charter schools perform on the state's high stakes tests.

Lucky for all of us, the co-founder of Boundless has a fabulous new infographic they just launched. Dubbed the EdTech Cheat Sheet, I think it’s one of the most useful infographics out there today.
