About The School Performance Scan:
The SPS is conducted in order to assess the current functioning of the school from the perspective of certified staff and administration. It is a required assessment for schools in NYS that are Focus or Priority status. PLC Associates, Inc. is a certified provider by The State Education Department of New York for these surveys and adheres to strict codes of delivery.

PLC Associates, Inc., based in Florida and New York, will conduct the survey and oversee all elements of survey protocol. They operate according to a strict Professional Code of Ethics that prohibits personalized disclosure (i.e. identifying respondents) of information. Respondents are anonymous. Data will be provided to the school and district (no names) for analysis, planning, and discussion purposes. Commentary will be provided in an unedited form. When entering commentary, please spell correctly (allows a word sort) and kindly refrain from inappropriate language. Reports will provide the data for the whole school in aggregate; there is no sorting by position or in a way that would identify respondents, so that anonymity is protected.
