CENTRAL VALLEY SCHOOL DISTRICT IS CLOSED - ALL ACTIVITIES CANCELED
The Beaver County School Districts and the Career and Technology Center continue to work together as we receive guidance from our state and federal leaders. Today, Governor Wolf announced that all schools would remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year. Therefore, all Beaver County school facilities are closed, and events canceled through the end of the school year. While much uncertainty still exists, this announcement will allow families to plan for their needs in the coming months. All schools will continue to provide continuity of education and meals through the last regularly scheduled day of school. We understand that this is heartbreaking for the Class of 2020, but please be patient as we seek additional guidance from our state leaders regarding graduation and other special events. We appreciate your patience and support during this closure, and we will continue to provide updates as we move forward together.

Future Ready PA Index

What is the Future Ready PA Index (FRPAI)

In looking at ways to create a more holistic school evaluation tool, the Pennsylvania Department of Education conducted dozens of feedback sessions to solicit recommendations from more than 1,000 stakeholders around a new measure.

The Future Ready PA Index will serve as Pennsylvania’s one-stop location for comprehensive information about school success and will use a dashboard model to highlight how schools are performing and making progress on multiple indicators.

The dashboard approach to school reporting:  

  • Increases emphasis on student growth measures, which incentivizes a focus on all learners and is less sensitive to demographic variables.
  • Measures English language acquisition among ELL students, not simply performance on a test of grade level ELA standards.
  • Incentivizes career awareness instruction beginning at the elementary level.
  • Addresses the issue of unequal weighting of content areas in the current SPP.
  • Provides indicators of student success after graduation.
  • Increases the emphasis on student access to course offerings such as AP, IB, college credit, and CTE programs of study.
  • Allows LEAs to include locally-selected reading assessments (Grade 3) and math assessments (Grade 7) as additional snapshots of student progress.
  • Incentivizes schools to offer career pathways that culminate with high value, industry-recognized credentials.
