To Members of the Council Rock Community:

The Board of School Directors is publishing the following schedule of Board Meetings and Special Meetings that are part of the development of a new Capital Plan for our School District. Recommendations and discussions will include, among other things,  the potential of one or more school closures along with the potential of redistricting.  These meetings, particularly the special sessions on October 9th and October 23rd, are designed to receive input from members of our public on the components of the Plan.

Interested members of our community can view information regarding our plans and process at the Capital Planning LINK on the front page of the Council Rock webpage.  Questions can be directed to this email address:  capitalplanning@crsd.org

CR High School Rankings 
High School Rankings occur across many different periodicals and reporting sites. In the past, we have seen our high schools ranked in publications such as the Washington Post, Newsweek, US News and World Reports and Philadelphia Magazine. Last week, Council Rock  received notification from a web site associated with Newsweek – The Daily Beast – that their 2014 Rankings would be published and that both of our high schools would appear on the rankings.  Released last Wednesday, the rankings show Council Rock South as #133 in the country and Council Rock North as #141.  You can view the rankings at this LINK.  The methodology of these rankings avoids the use of state test scores but rather uses indicators that are common across all of our nation’s high schools.  The rankings are based on SAT/ACT scores, Graduation Rates, College Acceptance, Academic Rigor and Free and Reduced Lunch Rates.
