The statistical analysis of the last reported PSSA scores of district totals (2011-12), located on the PDE website, show Harrisburg’s ranking in the state as 496 of 498 for proficiency/advance students in Reading, Math, and Science. According to PDE, the district’s last AYP status in 2012 was Corrective Action II, 10th Year.  It had a 5.88 percent dropout rate – the 10 highest in the state.  A review of the district’s School Performance profiles reveals that only one school in the district – the Math Science Academy – a magnet middle school was considered in “blue status” – an SPP over 90.  Six schools were in “red status” – an SPP under 60 and indicating academic deficiency and three schools in yellow status.  Schools under an SPP Score of 70 have a showing of needed academic improvement.  Key Charter School of Harrisburg will provide the city a comprehensive K-12 opportunity for all students. Research shows, the developmental, hands-on, project-based approach Key Charter School of Harrisburg will implement will benefit all students making them career and/or college ready upon graduation.  Moreover, Key Charter School of Harrisburg will be a unique public charter school for families in Harrisburg.  It is time to give another option to the children in Harrisburg. Once again, vote ‘YES’ to Key Charter School of Harrisburg!

      Hbg school dist is terrible. The principal at my daughters school REFUSES to have her tested for learning disabilities. She will not help the kids that need it and told me they will just push them through. I want my kids to have a quality education with teachers who care about them. This new charter school will give these kids a new start. Smaller classes and more attention where it is needed

      This school may not be what it seems and I would like to remove my name from the list of supporters. Thank you.
