Pittsburgh Public Schools partners with Pa. on school improvement plan

Jul 16, 2018 by

Pittsburgh Public Schools’ latest efforts to turn around its struggling schools are going to be a model for other Pennsylvania districts looking to boost their performance.

The district was one of three across the state to participate in the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s school improvement pilot program, a new plan to more closely share state resources with districts that have the lowest-performing schools.

The strategy is a major piece of the state blueprint under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act, a new accountability plan that gives state more flexibility to measure student success beyond standardized testing.

Previously, if the state’s persistently lowest-achieving schools failed to meet standards, they would have to restructure, which could include reopening as a charter, replacing staff or installing a new principal.
