Subject:   PA Academic Review Website

The Pennsylvania Department of Education is now fully populated with Eligible Content for English Language Arts and Mathematics in grades 3 through 8, and in Algebra I and Literature at the secondary level.

The academic review site is designed to promote awareness and understanding of our Eligible Content.  Our goal will be to inform and seek feedback from our educators, parents, and other community members on the Eligible Content statements, their purpose, and value.  If after we gather feedback and conclude that significant changes need to be made, we will engage in a revision process via public hearings.

Please encourage educators, parents, community members, and other interested parties to visit and review the content.  The feedback we receive will be invaluable as we evaluate and refine our career and post secondary expectations for our students.
