Study of Pennsylvania counties finds that Snyder County rates 1.86 (moderate to low risk) for social and economic conditions that put young children at a higher risk of academic failure. Summary There were 7 criteria used in determining each county considered to be at risk. Among these were the percentage of children under 5 and who are in low-income families or poverty level. Single mother families were also among the risk categories. Mothers who did not finish high school are a risk category, too. Snyder County was well below the state average of 2.49.

More than 2,100 Pennsylvania schools will be honored this year with Keystone Achievement Awards. The awards are given to public schools that achieved adequate yearly progress (AYP) in the 2005-06 and 2006-07 school years. Progress is measured in part by a school's performance on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment, the standardized test given annually to students in grades 3-8 and 11.
