Ranking causes concern for school board

January 12, 2012

A recent ranking from SchoolDigger.com was a cause for concern during Tuesday night's Ridgway Area School District Board of Directors meeting.
"I was looking at the school rankings [Tuesday] based on the PSSA scores, which I know aren't necessarily an accurate portrayal, but I was a little disturbed and I think I know the reason why," said director Kathy Lampman. "We are ranked at 406 out of 683 and we had dropped 290 places from last year and that's just the difference between the two 11th grade classes."
