Pennsylvania Accountability System
Governor Mifflin School District Report Card
The Pennsylvania Accountability System applies to all public schools and districts. It is based upon the state’s content and achievement standards, valid and reliable measures of academic achievement, and other key indicators of school and district performances, such as attendance and graduation rates. The Pennsylvania Accountability System meets the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind legislation and has the same end goal of having every child in the Commonwealth proficient or above in reading and mathematics by the year 2014.
The Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) is the main assessment tool of the Pennsylvania Accountability System. Currently, students in grades 3, 4, 5, 8, and 11 take PSSA tests in reading and math. Assessment results are reported annually by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and to the general public via district and school building report cards. The report cards are designed to ensure that the public is fully informed about performance and to promote broader participation and better decision-making by providing a shared source of performance data.
The posting of the report cards meets the requirements of the Federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation. All Governor Mifflin School District buildings are represented, along with a district-wide report. If you have questions regarding the interpretation of this information please contact the Education Center at 610-775-1461.

No Child Left Behind - Parent Rights
The No Child Left Behind legislation is the federal law enacted in January of 2002 to ensure that all children receive a quality education. Included in the law are the following parents’ rights:
To review curriculum and instructional materials utilized by their children
To review surveys and/or request that their children not participate in surveys conducted by outside organizations
To request that their child’s name not be released to military recruiters without prior parent consent.
To request information about the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher
If parents wish to exercise these rights, they should send their requests in writing to the building principal.
