Standards Aligned System

The Standards Aligned System (SAS), developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, is a comprehensive, researched-based resource to improve student achievement. SAS identifies six elements that impact student achievement: Standards, Assessments, Curriculum Framework, Instruction, Materials & Resources, and Safe and Supportive Schools. Schools and educators across Pennsylvania are supported in their efforts to implement SAS by the development of a state-of-the-art portal.

In order to truly educate a person, you must light a fire in them. Igniting the flame allows a person to pursue passion in understanding. More so; however, one must light that fire alongside a relationship and mutual respect.
