The Pennsylvania Accountability System:


Pennsylvania developed the Pennsylvania Accountability Plan in compliance with the Federal No Child Left Behind Law, which was enacted in 2002, as a way to measure school improvement and student achievement.

The Pennsylvania Accountability System:

  • Applies to all schools and students.
  • Is based on Pennsylvania's standards and content expectations.
  • Sets a goal to have 100% of students proficient or above by 2014.
  • Uses a valid, reliable assessment system.
  • Provides for rewards, assistance and consequences.

Schools are evaluated on achievement using the PSSA, participation in those tests, and on attendance (at the elementary/middle school level) and graduation rate (at the high school level). These measurements make up a school's Adequate Yearly Progress, commonly known as AYP.

These expectations apply not only to the school or district as a whole, but also to the performance of subgroups, including racial/ethnic categories, low-income students, students with disabilities, and English Language Learners.

The state, school districts, and schools will publish the results of the assessments every school year starting in 2002-2003 with the Academic Achievement Report.
