PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Business Times has released its 2019 school district rankings, covering more than 100 districts in seven counties.
The 2019 ranking is based on PSSA and Keystone exams taken in 2016, 2017, and 2018. A proprietary formula combines the results on PSSA tests taken by students in grades three, four, five, six, seven, and eight, and the Keystone Exams given to high school students, generally in 11th grade. The three unranked districts did not offer all grades.
This is the 15th year that the Business Times has published the school district ranking. New to the 2019 edition is an average 15-year rank, tracking each district's average spot over the history of this feature.
