School board approves plan to boost test scores at Pottstown H.S.

    The Pottstown School Board is responding to poor state exam scores with a new plan to help Pottstown High School improve, after the school failed to reach federal benchmarks.

    According to The Mercury, school board members approved a plan to improve instruction at the school.

    The plan includes creating an “enrichment course,” which will help to address specific reading skills.  Teachers will also have new ways to address math issues with students.

    The Mercury says as a result of the school’s most recent shortfall, the district must formulate and institute a School Improvement Plan.
