I want accountability!!! New superintendent (about 2 years ago) and new Team CV School Board members and 35th isn't impressive at ALL! In Pittsburgh Business Times, rank of schools based on 2012 PSSA scores as compared to 2011 we dropped from 42 to 45. However, in the list of fastest growing communities Collier Twp ranks #7, which means increased tax dollars. Now, I was recently told by someone that Chartiers Valley spends the same, or very close per student, as Upper St. Clair (and they are ranked one in the region, as well as number one in the state)

35th out of how many?

The list was compiled from schools around Westerns Pennsylvania. There are more than 100 school districts in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler Washington and Westmoreland counties. But other counties in the other surrounding areas (Armstrong, Indiana, Lawrence, Greene and Fayette) may have also been included in list.
