The Educator Effectiveness System (24 P.S. § 11-1123 – Act 82 – 2012) is designed to evaluate teachers based upon classroom observations, teacher specific data, elective data, and building level data. The building level data are used to develop the school academic performance score derived from the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile. It comprises 15 percent of each teacher and principal’s evaluation beginning with the teacher rating in the 2013-2014 school year and the principal rating in the 2014-2015 school year.
The score for a school is based upon indicators that define a high performing school. Many data elements come together to create the academic score. These elements are categorized into five areas.
The first three areas represent 50 percent of the school academic performance score:
This category represents 40 percent of the school academic performance score:
This category represents 10 percent of the school academic performance score:
Schools may earn up to 7 additional points via Extra Credit for Advanced Achievement based upon advanced performance on state and industry assessments, as well as for students earning a 3 or higher on an Advanced Placement exam.

|* Note: For 2012-13 data, Closing the Achievement Gap will not be measured as this is the baseline year. This AMO will be considered as having been met if the proficiency for the All Student group and the Historically Underperforming Student group is above the statewide proficiency for that group.|
