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

2016 CSIU 16 region school districts/schools: Graduation rates 2006-2016

The Pennsylvania Department of Education has posted the 2016 results by school and grade at PSSA Information. (Spetember 29, 2016) High school students do not take PSSAs. They take the Keystone Exams: Reading/Literature, Biology 1 and Algebra 1. Listed in order of the district high school's School Performance Profiles (SPP's).

The Wolf Administration's Pennsylvania Department of Education withheld the 2015 School Performance Profile on all schools. The PDE explained they withheld the scores due to many schools experiencing precipitous declines in student reading and math achievement on the PSSAs in 2015. The PDE posted the results by school and grade at PSSA Information. High school students no longer take PSSAs. They take the Keystone Exams at the end of the course.

PDE - PA School Performance Profile | Keystone/PSSA 2016 data | PSSA 2015 data

Effective Fall 2013 PA public schools' achievement are now reported in a new manner. The District AYP is no longer graded/reported as a whole. Each school gets its own report card (Performance Profile) with a score out of a possible 100. Look on the right hand of the school's Academic Performance tab for: reading, math, science and writing scores on grade level. The individual grades achievement are also no longer being reported. Only whole school data is reported with the exception of 3rd grade reading. High School and some Middle School students are taking the new Keystone Exams in Literature, Algebra 1 and Biology at the end of the course. PSSAs spring exams continue for grades 3rd-8th. PSSAs were 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 No Child Left Behind 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.
