  • The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) is requiring PSSA’s and Keystone exams to be administered in-person only. If parents/guardians would like to request to opt-out their students from PSSA’s due to religious reasons, please notify your students’ principals by April 9 so they can plan accordingly. Opt-out students may be assigned to a different room location or will be assigned asynchronous work at home on scheduled testing days due to space and proctor limitations.  See the opt-out procedures below.
