Future Ready PA Index

About the Future Ready PA Index

Launched in November 2018, the Future Ready PA Index  is a collection of school progress measures related to school and student success. The Index includes a range of assessment, on-track, and readiness indicators, to more accurately report student learning, growth, and success in the classroom and beyond.

The Future Ready PA Index contains the most recent data available (2018-2019 school year). 
 

Categories

Progress is measured using three categories: 

State Assessment Measures 

  • Percent proficient in PSSA and Keystone Exam results in math, English Language Arts, and science 
  • Annual growth expectations through the Pennsylvania Value-Added Assessment System

On-Track Measures

  • English Language proficiency
  • Chronic absenteeism
  • Grade 3 reading/grade 7 math early indicators of success
College and Career Measures
  • Graduation rate
  • Career readiness benchmark
  • Industry-based learning (such as industry standards-based competency assessments, high-value industry recognized credentials or work-based experiences)
  • Rigorous courses of study, including Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, college courses or CTE career pathways
Schools are evaluated in these three areas, and receive an overall score for each. The score is illustrated with a blue, green, or red dot. Blue indicates a school has met or exceeded standards or goals for the category, green indicates a school has met or exceeded the interim target, and red indicates a school has not met the standard or interim target. 

Stories of Student Success

In addition to the measures of school performance reported by the Future Ready PA Index, we are proud to share a video series showcasing "Stories of Student Success." The videos tell OUR story through student interviews and data analysis. What better way to measure the growth and success of our students than to talk to them about their experiences. Click here to view.
