MOUNT UNION - PSSA results released Friday from the Pennsylvania Department of Education report that three schools in neighboring districts failed to meet 2011-2012 adequate yearly progress goals set by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
During the 2011-2012 school year, schools were to be 78 percent proficient or advanced in math and 81 percent proficient or advanced in reading to meet AYP goals.
The Mount Union School District was issued a warning, giving schools in the district one year to achieve AYP goals before corrective action is taken. Two schools in the district did not meet required targets: Mount Union Area High School and Shirley Township Elementary School.
Greenwood High School was the only school in its district to fail to meet goals. Overall, the Greenwood School District met AYP goals this year.
According to the federal No Child Left Behind Act, students must be 100 percent proficient in reading and math by 2014.
