Prior to each test administration outlined above, all testing students will receive an email with test dates and room numbers. Student’s attendance at the scheduled assessments is mandatory and any absences will result in a loss of instruction time in order to attend make-up sessions as needed. The Pennsylvania Department of Education does not provide a remote option to take the Keystone Exam.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education does not provide a remote option to take the Keystone Exam. Please note that the use of calculators is permitted and encouraged for use during the Algebra 1 and Biology Keystone Exams.  All students should be sure to bring their own calculator for use during testing.  Extra calculators for students to borrow are in limited supply and we do not guarantee your child will receive one.

 

It is extremely important that students make their best effort in completing the assessments.  I encourage you to make sure that your student is well rested the night before testing and eats a nutritious breakfast on the mornings of the exam.
