Pa. gives 62 city schools achievement awards

A Pennsylvania Department of Education official yesterday presented Keystone Achievement Awards to 62 schools in the School District of Philadelphia for meeting academic standards of the federal No Child Left Behind law for two years in a row.

Blue and gold keystone-shaped placards were given to the winning principals at the end of a citywide principals' meeting at Benjamin Rush High School in the Northeast.

The Philadelphia schools were among nearly 1,900 schools the state named Keystone Achievement winners in October.
