(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania education officials say they have released the remaining performance scores for all 3,200 traditional, charter, cyber and technical schools after complaints about inaccurately entered data delayed some for two months.

Wednesday's release of scores accounted for more than 620 schools, mostly high and middle schools, whose scores had been suppressed over concerns about accuracy.

The state Department of Education says the results indicate that 2,181, or nearly 73%, of public schools received a score of 70 or higher.

School Performance Profiles offer academic ratings for each building based on a 100-point scale.
