The state Department of Education has released school district academic performance scores that Gov. Corbett had wanted to use to determine how schools spend state block grant money. The action was made possible by right-to-know requests.
The School Performance Profile scores for 2012-13 show several school districts in Chester County performed very well, including Unionville-Chadds Ford, Kennett Consolidated and Downingtown.
The highest possible score is 107 points, counting seven extra-credit points. The highest score in the state was 100 in Radnor Township in Delaware County.
In October, the state began rolling out the first School Performance Profiles — including new academic scores — for each school building in a system which replaced the old measurement of making adequate yearly progress, known as AYP.
