Pa. releases list of lowest-achieving schools

February 4, 2013 7:57:19 AM PST
The Pennsylvania Department of Education has published its list of the lowest-achieving schools.

178 of the 406 schools on the list are in Philadelphia.

27 schools from Delaware County made the list as well, along with 13 schools in Reading.

Students in those low-achieving schools may be eligible to obtain a voucher to attend a higher achieving public or private school that participates in the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program.

The program was created last summer.

According to the Pa. Dept. of Education website, "A low-achieving school is defined as a public elementary or secondary school ranking in the bottom 15 percent of their designation as an elementary or secondary school based upon combined math and reading Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) scores."
