PDE TO RELEASE NEW MEASUREMENT TOOL FOR SCHOOLS AND STUDENTS

In fall 2018, PDE will introduce the Future Ready PA Index, a new public-facing portal for comprehensive information and data on student and school success. According to PDE, The Future Ready PA Index recognizes that students and the schools that serve them are more than just standardized test scores. To that end, the Index features a collection of indicators that illustrate academic proficiency, on-track progress, and college and career readiness – helping to demonstrate how schools are doing in preparing students for postsecondary success.

As noted above, PDE expects to release the dashboard in its entirety in fall 2018; an exact date has not been provided to districts yet, however. Once released, CR community members will be able to view district data. To learn more about the new Future Ready PA Index, click on the following links:
