Future Ready PA Index

About the Future Ready PA Index

Note from the Pennsylvania Department of Education

Throughout the 2020-21 school year, Pennsylvania schools focused on delivering instruction in the safest way possible. Modes of instructional delivery, student attendance and participation, school staffing, pupil transportation, and testing conditions were impacted to varying degrees.

Additionally, last year’s extended testing window, certain federal and state testing flexibilities, and irregular and historically low test participation impact the availability and comparability of specific data elements. As a result, users may notice some modifications to Future Ready PA Index’s display and functionality.
