District Report Card

In the Fall of 2018, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) released the first edition of the Future Ready PA Index, a comprehensive progress report that provides parents and community members with easy-to-understand information about Pennsylvania schools and student success.

PDE's Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Report Card is designed to provide education leaders and all stakeholders with additional data on student outcomes and equity considerations. The inaugural edition of the Report Card is based on information available for reporting in the 2017-18 school year.

Previously, as part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), school districts were required to publish an annual district report card. The purpose of the report card was to inform stakeholders of the District’s progress in meeting forty-one targets established under NCLB. The targets included graduation rate, attendance rates for students in Kindergarten through Grade 8, and academic performance as measured by the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA). This report card provided information on how well South Middleton students met targets, as well as a comparison between the achievement levels of our schools and those of other schools across the state. Due to the change in federal legislation, the No Child Left Behind Act reporting was replaced with the Every Student Succeeds Act reporting index.

The previous report cards (2003-2011) are listed below. Additionally, current reports through the Future Ready PA Index are also available for review.
