Description

Dear Pennsylvania Superintendents,

We are looking forward to our second convening of this council in just a few weeks on January 25th at the Harrisburg Hilton, 10AM – 3PM.

As previously communicated, the goal of bringing this group together is to engage with regional and national College Board staff to discuss key education policy, hear early information on new College Board initiatives and resources, share current/future best practices with your colleagues, and provide feedback that will help shape our new programs and resources to best support Pennsylvania educators and students.

Thank you all so much for the candid and informative feedback from the survey. Your responses greatly informed the development of the agenda for this upcoming meeting which includes time for open Q&A with leaders from our AP division to discuss areas conveyed by all of you in the survey: future plans for AP and flexibility with exam dates, increased support for teachers and students to succeed, challenges with access to courses in certain areas, co-existence of AP and Dual Enrollment, and concern over the loss of federal funding for low income AP exams. Per the survey, we are also providing you all with open discussion time with leadership from our Assessment division to dig “under the hood” of the SAT Suite of Assessments. The survey expressed a desire to learn more about alignment to PA standards/eligible content, what are the resources to inform curriculum/instruction, what PD can be provided by College Board, and understanding test development to ensure protection against bias.

We will also provide plenty of time for sharing of best practices around implementation of the Khan Academy Official SAT Practice tool as this tool will become a key component of providing support for AP students in the near future as well.
