State Senate Democrats unanimously re-elected Senator Lisa M. Boscola to chair the Senate Democratic Policy Committee.

“I am proud to have the support of my senate caucus colleagues and look forward to working with both Democrats and Republicans in the upcoming session,” Boscola said.

The Democratic Policy Committee researches issues and develops the Democratic Caucus’ legislative policy. Boscola was first elected to the leadership position in 2011.

Under Boscola’s leadership, the committee has been active statewide. From Scranton to Pittsburgh, the Democratic Policy Committee has held numerous hearings throughout the state on issues such as prison reform and lowering recidivism, voting accessibility, work force development initiatives, hospital funding, our foster care system, human services budget cuts, aligning community college curriculums with available jobs, early voting, helping war veterans, the economic plight of small cities, food safety, gas drilling near lakes and rivers, school voucher legislation, economic development initiatives, the impact of liquor laws in commercial districts, improving the charter school law and government reform.

Boscola said that numerous bills enacted into law over the years originated or partially used proposals developed from her Policy Committee hearings and meetings.

“The Pennsylvania Senate Democrats had a great cycle picking up five seats,” Boscola said. “We need to continue to develop legislation and initiatives that strengthen the middle class, create jobs, generate economic development, protect our environment, improve our education system, reduce the burden of property taxes on homeowners and give voters a stronger voice.”

First taking public office as a state representative in 1994, Boscola was elected to the state senate in 1998. She continues to serve as the only elected female senator in a leadership position in either Senate caucus.

Future Ready PA Index Launching Today

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) is launching the Future Ready PA Index, the new public-facing, one-stop location for comprehensive information and data on student and school success.

The Future Ready PA Index will serve as a tool for evaluating schools, relying on a broader set of meaningful indicators, recognizing that students, and the schools that teach them, are more than just standardized tests.  The Index features a collection of indicators in three main categories that illustrate academic proficiency, on-track progress, and college and career readiness.  The Index illustrates not only academic proficiency, but also growth, achievement, and other data by student group, including economically disadvantaged students, English Learners, students receiving special education services, and racial and ethnic groups, improving transparency around student performance.

This Index is easy for parents and educators to navigate and is searchable by district, school, career and technical center, or location. It also includes basic information and demographic data for each school, plus features filters and options to enable comparison between multiple schools.
