The Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) gives us an idea of how well the schools are doing overall educating the students in their charge. There hasn’t been much, if any, public discussion about these scores (have you even seen them?) and it might be a good time to consider how well the students are doing, especially in light of some current issues before the district and when considering spending priorities going forward.
There’s a lot to see here and the data is shown below in considerable detail. Click on the images to see them full size and form your own conclusions. The links at the bottom takes you to the trends page where you can display the data in different ways and to numerous spreadsheets of data from all PA schools and multiple years.
