Pittsburgh Public Schools Superintendent Mark Roosevelt has released a four-year update on the Excellence For All Campaign. He says that while improvements have been made work still needs to be done. Roosevelt says that out of 38 categories in the plan, eight were met or exceeded. Roosevelt added that there was improvement in 23 other areas. One area that has not met expectations has been 11th grade performance on the PSSA's. Roosevelt said that he does expect to see those scores increase because for the last three years there have been increases in 8th grade PSSA scores. According to Roosevelt the next step in the Excellence For All Campaign is to update it.
