Career and technical schools strive to not only teach the technical skills required for students enrolled in their programs, but they also try to ensure that students achieve on state standardized academic tests. In Pennsylvania, all students are required to take the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSAs). The PA Department of Education’s Bureau of Career and Technical Education has developed many initiatives to help improve student achievement on this exam for students enrolled in CTE. One specifically is the PIL (Pennsylvania Inspired Leadership) program. This 30-hour program was developed to “provide CTE leaders with the knowledge and skills to work with teachers to improve the achievement on the PSSA math and reading assessments.” Participants were provided with material to understand the PSSA assessment for math and reading, and taught how to enhance instruction for the areas addressed.
