School District Data Shows West Oak Lane Charter School Performance Spike
WEST OAK LANE—West Oak Lane Charter School’s (WOLCS) overall performance has increased by 19 percent as measured by the School District of Philadelphia’s newly released School Progress Report (SPR). The SPR is a school district tool used to monitor annual progress of district schools and public charter schools. Released at the beginning of each calendar year, the SPR reflects the prior school year’s scores.
The SPR divides scores into four tiers. The two highest tiers are “REINFORCE” (50-74 percent) and “MODEL” (75-100 percent). West Oak Lane Charter School is nudging the second-highest tier “REINFORCE” model in the “Overall” category—an accomplishment we hope to report this time next year. WOLCS scores as a MODEL school in the category of School Climate.
“The good news about WOLCS surge in overall progress comes at a time when many of our eighth grade students are receiving acceptance letters from Philadelphia’s most prestigious magnet, special admission, and charter high schools,” West Oak Lane Charter School CEO Dr. Debbera Peoples-Lee said. “The continued trend of WOLCS students earning acceptances into the most competitive high schools along with our more than 1,000 student body representing nearly every Philadelphia zip code shows our education model is working.”
