Keystone Exams

   

Students are required to attain proficiency, as defined by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on the Keystone exams. Current interpretation would be proficient or higher on the Algebra I and Literature Keystone Exams. Students who do not eventually achieve a score of proficient or higher will participate in a district based remediation program prior to graduation. Any policy developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education regarding the Keystone exams and graduation requirements will supersede the district policy.
