Pittsburgh School Board Rated

A+ Schools, Pittsburgh's education watchdog group released its first report card of the school year based on observations by its Board Watch volunteers.

The school board got a B-, the same grade they got last school year but Carey Harris, the group's executive director says it is a stronger B- because the group showed improvement in several areas.

At least three volunteers attend agenda reviews and legislative meetings and judge the bard members on five criteria. They are how well they manage time, transparency, conduct, role clarity and competency.
