In an effort to address the discrepancy between the number of students proficient in mathematics on the PSSA in the elementary grades and the number of students proficient in the eleventh grade, the districts of Schuylkill County have made the decision to form the Mathematics Advisory Council.

The council will meet monthly to review data, conduct research, consult with experts in the appropriate content area and, most importantly, to network. The end result will be recommendations for best practices in the areas of curricular sequencing and instructional strategies.
