Act 82 Building Level Score

The Act 82 Building Level Score (formerly the School Performance Profile*) is a component of the Educator Effectiveness System. The profile provides a school level academic score for public schools, charter and cyber charter schools, and full-time comprehensive career and technical centers.

The Educator Effectiveness System (Act 82 of 2012) is designed to evaluate both principals and teachers. Teacher evaluations are based upon classroom observations, teacher specific data, elective data, and building level data. The building level data is derived from the profile. The academic performance score comprises 15% of each teacher and principal's evaluation.

*The Act 82 Building Level Score was formerly called the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile; it was changed in 2018 as a result of the U.S. Department of Education's approval of Pennsylvania's Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Consolidated State Plan.
