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.
The Future Ready dashboard is searchable by district, school, career and technical center, or location; and it includes basic information and demographic data for each school.
