• School Improvement Plans for RSD's Focus Schools

    Beginning with the 2013-14 school year, PDE no longer used Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) to determine a school’s designation. Instead, in accordance with the ESEA Flexibility Waiver, PDE uses four Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) to designate the Title I school as Reward – High Achievement, Reward – High Progress, Priority, or Focus schools.  The four AMOs include: measuring test participation rate; graduation/attendance rate; closing the achievement gap for all students; and closing the achievement gap for the historically underperforming students. In addition, all public schools in the state now receive a School Performance Profile score based on 100 points. This score will be considered the school’s academic performance score, and while not the criteria for determination of Reward, Priority or Focus status, it details student performance through scoring of multiple measures that define achievement. The School Performance Profile also includes supports to permit schools to access materials and resources to improve in defined areas related to achievement.
