The PA Department of Education has launched its new “Future Ready PA Index” with a dashboard that allows for a look at how Pennsylvania schools – including those here in DTSD - are educating students. In addition to proficiency, the dashboard illustrates growth, achievement, and other data by student group - such as economically disadvantaged students, English Learners, students receiving special education services, and racial and ethnic groups.
