High School Award

Tuesday night at the free senior citizen supper, Larry Persing from Senator Scarnati's office presented a "Keystone Award" to the high school. Mr. Persing presented the award to students who were helping at the senior citizen supper.  The Keystone Award is given to high schools in Pennsylvania who have met "adequate yearly progress" (AYP) for two or more years.  AYP is determined by meeting the requirements set forth in "No Child Left Behind".  Along with the Keystone Award the high school has also been recognized by "school" as the 6th most improved high school in Pennsylvania last year based on test scores.  The improvement places the high school 116 of over 600 high schools in the State.  Great job to the students and staff at the high school!  The senior supper and presentation were part of the RASD Celebration which is wrapping up this week.
