State Department of Education Accepts Charleroi Special Education Plan 2016-19

New Bill Proposed to Fund Schools If There Is Another Budget Impasse

The next state budget is not due for two months, but after last year's gridlock, legislators recently took a step toward preventing a repeat of the stalemate that kept school funding bottled up for months.



Returning after a two-week recess, members of the House Education Committee approved a bill that would keep school funds flowing if a budget is not enacted by Aug. 15 - six weeks after the next fiscal year starts July 1.

PITTSBURGH BUSINESS TIMES EDUCATIONAL RANKINGS

The annual 2016 Pittsburgh Business Times Report School Rankings were just released. The Pittsburgh Business Times annually ranks the state's school districts based on three years of state-administered assessment tests. This report analyzed over 126 school districts in our seven county Western Pennsylvania region and the 500 school districts across the state. The 2016 PBTR recognized the Charleroi Area School District in the Statewide Honor Roll category with one of the largest one year improvements; we improved 29 spots in the Statewide Honor Roll rankings, from 379 to 350.

In addition we were recognized for continuing to improve within the overachiever rank from the previous year. While the other rankings in this guide look only at students’ results on state standardized test scores, the overachiever rank also takes into account the economic situation in the district. Specifically, the percentage of students identified as economically disadvantaged — those who qualify for free or reduced lunch — is included in the formula for calculating this ranking. We moved up an additional 3 spots in the overachiever rankings, from 70 to 67. Congratulations to our entire learning community.
