MAYOR JIM KENNEY AND SUPERINTENDENT WILLIAM HITE TO ACKNOWLEDGE UNIVERSAL FAMILY OF SCHOOLS FOR RECEIVING TOP HONORS ON SCHOOL DISTRICT OF PHILADELPHIA PROGRESS REPORT
Superintendent Hite and Mayor Kenney to recognize Universal Alcorn, Universal Bluford and Universal Creighton for achieving academic success during the 2016-2017 School Progress Awards Ceremony on Monday, January 29, 2018, 10 a.m. at Potter-Thomas Elementary School, 3001 North 6th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19133.

The School Progress Report (SPR) is an innovative tool designed to help us support, respond to, and improve our schools. The SPR reflects our core belief that all students deserve to attend great schools and that we must hold ourselves to a standard of equitable educational excellence. The SPR enables us to both see whether we are meeting this standard, and to track progress and growth of students against the District’s anchor goals.

During the Awards Ceremony, Universal Alcorn, Universal Bluford and Universal Creighton will be commended for being Peer Leaders in their respective education grouping. Most recently, the three Renaissance Charter Schools outperformed other charters across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania: Universal Creighton outperformed 84% of charter schools across the state on the 2017 PA School Performance Profile (SPP), Universal Bluford outperformed 78% of charter schools across the state on the 2017 SPP; moving from 22nd percentile rank in 2016 to 78th percentile rank in 2017 and Universal Alcon outperformed 73% of charter schools across the state; going from 37th percentile rank in 2016 to 73rd percentile rank in 2017.
