Pennsylvania Department of Education announces performance scores

Nov 7, 2014

Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Michael J. Conti, today issued the following statement regarding the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s release of its 2013-14 School Performance Profile:

“While we are heartened that our overall 55.5 score on the SPP surpasses the majority of cyber charter schools across the commonwealth, we have initiated changes to our curriculum and instructional model this school year in an effort to significantly increase our students’ academic performance moving forward.

“It’s always challenging to help our students excel academically in an atmosphere where a very high percentage of them are new to our school, but we continue to make inroads to overcoming them, and are hopeful our scores will reflect those changes on future SPPs.

“We salute the department for continuing to adopt more rigorous assessments, and are pleased to have the data available to use as a benchmark to evaluate our strengths and weaknesses.”
