The Keystone Exams will be administered at Keystone Oaks High School during the winter testing phase from January 3-17, 2024. The exams will be administered to students who did not previously test with a score of proficient or above on assessments for Algebra I, Biology and Literature. Specific details will be forthcoming from the high school.
Section 4.4 of Chapter 4 of the State Board of Education Regulations provides for the right of any parents or guardians to excuse their children from the State Assessments if, upon inspection of the testing materials, they find the Assessments to be in conflict with their religious beliefs. Parents or guardians may review the Assessments by making arrangements with the building principals. A Parent Confidentiality Agreement must be signed after the review concludes.
Information for Parents or Guardians on the Pennsylvania Keystone Exams and the Pennsylvania Department of Education's policy prohibiting the use of cell phones or electronic devices during the Assessment is available on the District's website.
Please contact your child's principal with any additional questions.
