Future Ready PA Index

The Future Ready PA Index will serve as Pennsylvania’s one-stop location for comprehensive information about school success, and will use a dashboard model to highlight how schools are performing and making progress on multiple indicators.


The dashboard approach to school reporting:  


  • Increases emphasis on student growth measures, which incentivizes a focus on all learners and is less sensitive to demographic variables.

  • Measures English language acquisition among ELL students, not simply performance on a test of grade level ELA standards.

  • Incentivizes career awareness instruction beginning at the elementary level.

  • Addresses the issue of unequal weighting of content areas in the current SPP.

  • Provides indicators of student success after graduation.

  • Increases the emphasis on student access to course offerings such as AP, IB, college credit, and CTE programs of study.

  • Allows LEAs to include locally-selected reading assessments (Grade 3) and math assessments (Grade 7) as additional snapshots of student progress.

  • Incentivizes schools to offer career pathways that culminate with high value, industry recognized credentials.
