Introduction

Since its creation in 2017 , the annual State of Education report has served as a barometer of not only the key indicators of public school performance , such as standardized test scores and school finances , but also the timely challenges that public schools are facing and how they are coping with them .
While the goal of the report is to provide a statewide view of the key indicators of the state of public education in the commonwealth , this year ’ s report focuses solely on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic ( hereinafter referred to as “ pandemic ”) on the state ’ s 500 public school districts .
Data used in the report comes from two primary sources – first , a survey of chief school administrators at Pennsylvania ’ s public school districts ; and the second , the compilation and analysis of available data from sources such as the Pennsylvania Department of Education .
