CCTI’s SPP Academic Score is the highest score in the state among 18 comprehensive career and technical schools.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education has recently released the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile. This public site (http://www.paschoolperformance.org) provides an academic performance score for public schools in the state. The performance score is designed with several purposes in mind:
- to inform the public of school performance
- to provide a building level score for educators as part of their evaluation system
- to allow the public to compare schools across the state
- to give schools a methodology to analyze their strengths and needs
We are proud to announce that our Pennsylvania School Performance Profile Academic Score for the 2014-15 school year rose 9.2 percentage points to 88.4%. There are 18 comprehensive career and technical schools in Pennsylvania. For the second consecutive year, CCTI’s SPP Academic Score is the highest score in the state among these 18 comprehensive career and technical schools. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our students, parents, staff, JOC, and all stakeholders within the community, CCTI has achieved this commendable ranking. The score the highest school building score in Carbon and neighboring Schuylkill county.
For the 2013-14 school year, CCTI’s School Performance Profile score was 79.2. Since then we studied the elements that were used to determine our score, and developed plans to raise the school score in the future. We revised our curricula, master schedule, and delivery systems, and worked as a team to maintain our high standards for grading, attendance, and work ethic.
In addition, we are once again pleased with our indicators of academic growth (PVAAS) for all three keystone subjects which illustrate that our students exceeded the state’s expectations for growth when they enter CCTI. We were awarded the maximum points for growth in Biology and Literature. We were awareded 80% of the points in Algebra I. Our career and technical based industry standard(NOCTI/NIMS) overall score of 96% of our students scoring Advanced (80%) or Competent (14%) is well above the state average. The overall score combines written and performance scores. And finally, our most recent State Audit Report showed no findings.
