As some of you are aware, PDE released the final SPP scores for the 2013-2014 school year. SPP scores are based on students’ standardized math, science, reading, and literature test scores, academic growth from the previous year, attendance, and other measures. A score of 70 or above indicates a school is making adequate progress. Nonetheless, I am quite pleased to report, as compared to other middle schools in the county, Manor Middle School received the highest SPP score (89.6)…Manor Middle School is #1! This certainly highlights and supports our understanding of what the Manor Middle School community represents…love and commitment to students.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education has developed a website http://paacademicreview.org to solicit feedback from the public on the eligible content in English language arts and mathematics in grades three through eight, and Algebra I and Literature at the secondary level.
Pennsylvania’s eligible content statements are a straightforward set of what we want students to know and do at each grade level, and serve as the blueprint for the state assessments.
