On January 30, The School District of Philadelphia released its 2017-2018 School Progress Report (SPR). For the third year in a row, since the School District launched its Action Plan 3.0, we are seeing steady progress citywide. Results released today show that the average Overall SPR score for citywide schools increased nine points from 33 percent in 2014-2015 to 42 percent in 2017-2018.

The SPR is the District’s primary tool to measure progress towards the Action Plan 3.0 anchor goals on grade-level literacy and college and career readiness. Now in its sixth year, the SPR evaluates schools in multiple areas, including student achievement, student progress, school climate, and for high schools, college and career readiness. The SPR speaks to the District’s belief in school autonomy, paired with support and accountability, and is a transparent, actionable way to gauge the progress and achievement of a school.
