I will continue to inform the region on how our children are doing in school through PSSA Reading, Math, Science and Graduation rate annual rankings.

Effective Fall 2013 PA public schools' achievement will now be reported in a new manner. The District is no longer graded as a whole. Each school gets its own report card with a score out of a possible 100. Look on the left hand of the document for reading, math, science and writing scores on grade level. The individual grades are not being reported. High School and some Middle School students will be taking the new Keystone Exams in Literature, Algebra 1 and Biology at the end of the course. PSSAs continue for grades 3rd-8th and are discontinued for 11th grade.

Curious or Concerned about the Keystone Exams and Common Core Standards?

Get the FACTS - PA Sec. of Education Carolyn Dumaresq on new Core Standards

PA has gotten a NCLB exemption from the Feds. AYP under the No Child Left Behind Act will no longer be reported. Students in grades 3rd through 8th will still take the 4 PSSAs. (reading, writing, math and science) Older students will take 3 Keystone Exams instead. The State's graduation project mandate has been abolished.
