On November 15, 2018, The Pennsylvania Department of Education launched the Future Ready PA Index, a database of information measuring student and school success. The online tool, developed by our team at PLS 3rd Learning in collaboration with PDE, gives parents, teachers and communities within Pennsylvania a better way to evaluate schools with a broader set of measurements that go beyond standardized tests.

The index’s website,, uses a dashboard approach to present school-level data in three main categories: academic performance, student progress and whether graduating students are prepared to go to college or start a career.

The Future Ready PA Index is the result of an initiative of Gov. Tom Wolf where his goal was to present a more holistic and comprehensive analysis and assessment of how schools are educating students.

Based on data from the 2017-18 academic year, the index covers elementary, middle and high schools at the state’s 500 school districts as well as charter and cyber-charter and vocational schools.
