Performance on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) for all district schools by grade. Performance is provided as counts and percentage for Below Basic, Basic Proficient, Advanced, and Proficient/Advanced scores. The following subgroups are also provided: English Language Learner (ELL), Special Education (IEP) status, Gender, Ethnicity, and Economically disadvantaged.

An important note about results for SY 2019-2020 and SY 2020-2021: Due to COVID-19 school closures, the PSSA and Keystone exams were not administered in Spring 2020 (for SY 2019-20). In SY 2020-21, due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, students were 100% virtual for most of the school year. SY 2020-21 PSSA & Keystone participation was low, and therefore, results are not published here. To learn more about district-wide assessments administered in SY 2020-2021, view this issue brief.

Notes:

  1. This data does not include Charter Schools.
  2. This data includes PASA tests.

This longitudinal open data file includes information about the graduation rates for the district broken out by: aggregation level (including alternative schools or excluding alternative schools), graduation rate type (four-year, five-year, or six-year), demographic category (EL status, IEP status, Economically Disadvantaged Status, Gender, or Ethnicity), and ninth-grade cohort.

The “Graduation Rate – Including Alternative Schools” includes traditional District K-12 schools, alternative education schools, Philadelphia Virtual Academy, and Widener Memorial School. The “Graduation Rate – Excluding Alternative Schools” includes traditional District K-12 schools, Philadelphia Virtual Academy, and Widener Memorial School only.

Students are attributed to the last school at which they actively attended in the respective graduation window, which ends on September 30 each year. Students are classified as EL, as having an IEP, and/or economically disadvantaged if they were designated as such at any point during their high school career. This file includes information for all ninth-grade cohorts dating back to the 2010-2011 ninth grade cohort.

Visit our interactive College & Career data website to further explore our 9th grade on track, high school graduation, college matriculation and persistence data, including breakouts by subgroups, student grades, and type of college students enrolled in.

Special Note: The 2017-2018 “Four-Year Cohort Graduation Rate – Excluding Alternative Schools” published on the District Scorecard did not include students who were last enrolled at a school that closed before the 2017-2018 school year. If it had, the 2017-2018 rate would have been 78% (rounded to the nearest integer). This open data file correctly identifies that the 4-Year Graduation Rate (Excluding Alternative Schools) for all students in the 2014-2015 cohort is 78.39%.

The files include, at the school level, the distribution of students across performance tiers based on the aimswebPlus and Star assessments, which measure student’s reading and math skills. Starting in 2020-2021, aimswebPlus is required for students in grades K-5, and Star is required for students in grades 6-8. Special education students who are not exempted in their Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) take aimswebPlus in grades K-5, aimswebPlus and Star in grades 6-8 and Star in grades 9-12.

For further information, please visit the Office of Assessment and review the following research reports provided by the Office of Research and Evaluation:

  1. K-12 Student Participation and Performance on aimswebPlus and Star Assessments, Fall 2019 and Fall 2020
  2. Assessing Student Performance Before and During Virtual Learning

aimswebPlus, administered three times per year, measures essential literacy and math skills using a battery of assessments that fall into two categories: curriculum-based measures (CBMs)—brief, timed measures of fluency on essential basic skills—and standards-based assessments (SBAs), which are comprehensive measures aligned to current learning standards. The tool is used to develop baselines and progress monitoring. It is also used to identify students who may need intervention. aimswebPlus designates each student to one of three performance tiers based on the number of correct answers.

Star Reading and Math screeners, administered four times per year, are computer-adaptive assessments that measure students’ reading comprehension and math skills, monitor achievement and growth, and track understanding of skills aligned to state-specific learning standards. STAR data will inform instructional reading levels for grades 6-8, and help to identify students in grades 6-12 who need intervention. Students are placed in one of four performance tiers based on their National Percentile Rank (NPR) in Star assessments.

Visit our interactive Goals & Guardrails Progress Monitoring data website to further explore district-level performance by grade level and subgroup on Star Reading and Star Math, leading indicators for Board Goals 1-4.

The Average Daily Attendance (ADA) calculation aggregates the absences for all students recorded in the Student Information System (SIS) and compares them to the total number of possible attended days based on the enrollment records of each student at the school. All classifications and reasons for student absences are included in calculating the absences used to calculate ADA.

The 95% Attendance (District- and School-Level) files display the number and percent of enrolled students in each grade that attended at least 95% of instructional days. The 95% Attendance – District figures are calculated cumulatively by month at the District level; the rate listed for June (except SY2019-20; see footnote 4) is the official year-end number for reporting and accountability purposes. The 95% Attendance – School is calculated cumulatively at year-end at the school level. All classifications and reasons for student absences are included in calculating absences used to calculate 95% Attendance.

For further information, please visit How does the School District of Philadelphia calculate student attendance?

Notes:

  1. These data sets do not include Charter Schools.
  2. Data only includes students enrolled in the District/school for 10 or more days.
  3. Summing numerators and denominators in the school-level file will not result in the numbers listed in the District-level file. This is because the figures in the school file are school-specific, meaning (a) a student who transfers schools mid-year will generally be attributed to both schools in the school file, but only counted once in the District file; and (b) a student may have a 95% attendance rate at one school but a less-than-95% attendance rate when considering their attendance across all schools
  4. All Attendance file calculations for SY2019-2020 only consider data through March 13, 2020 due to state-wide COVID-19 school closures.
  5. Previously published files are available as a ZIP file archive.

The Out-of-School Suspensions (District– and School-Level) files display the number and percent of enrolled students in each grade that had out-of-school suspensions (OSS). The OSS – District figures is calculated cumulatively by month at the District level; the rate listed for June (except SY2019-20; see footnote 4) is the official year-end number for reporting and accountability purposes. The OSS – School file is calculated cumulatively at year-end at the school level.

Notes:

  1. This data does not include Charter Schools.
  2. Data only includes students enrolled in the District/school for 10 or more days.
  3. Summing numerators and denominators in the school-level file will not result in the numbers listed in the District-level file. This is because the figures in the school file are school-specific, meaning (a) a student who transfers schools mid-year will generally be attributed to both schools in the school file, but only counted once in the District file; and (b) a student may have zero suspensions at one school but one or more suspensions at a different school, and thus be excluded from the count of students with zero OSS at the District level.
  4. All OSS calculations for SY2019-2020 only consider data through March 13, 2020 due to state-wide COVID-19 school closures.
  5. Previously published files are available as a ZIP file archive.

Click on the Reporting Cycle below to download a Zip folder that contains National Student Clearinghouse Student Tracker Reports for individual schools and the District as a whole. These reports contain data on student post-secondary enrollment, persistence, and graduation.

Please use our School NSC Code Crosswalk to identify the NSC code for the school report and year you want to view. The NSC code is found in the third component of each report file name, after “HS”. For example a report for the school with NSC code 392779 will appear as follows: “4218990hs_10000345_HS392779…”

The District does not share student academic or demographic information with the NSC. Therefore, the NSC is unable to generate many of the subgroup analyses contained in the Academic and Demographic reports (i.e., these report types are mostly left blank).

Note: District reports include data for District, Charter, and Alternative schools.
