Schools and educators across Pennsylvania are supported in their efforts to implement SAS by the development of a state-of-the-art portal.

Melanie is special education transition coordinator at Slippery Rock Area High School in the Slippery Rock Area School District.

The Milken Educator Awards celebrate, elevate, and activate exemplary K-12 educators. The awards have been instrumental in communicating to parents and policy makers alike the proven fact that the quality of the teacher in the classroom is by far the most important school-based determinant of student achievement.
