Failing grade: 2 off 15 Delaware Co. schools fail to meet state academic target

    Two of 15 school districts in Delaware County did not meet a state academic target based on standardized testing in the 2010-11 school year.

    The Daily Times reports the two school failed to meet an overall Pennsylvania Department of Education-mandated academic target.

    According to a report released this week by the state’s Department of Education, Upper Darby and Chester Upland school districts did not meet the overall adequate yearly progress (AYP).

    The Daily Times says while the two districts did not meet the target, two of the nine schools in Chester Upland made the state target and seven of Upper Darby’s 13 schools made AYP.
