Assessments

IMPORTANT PSSA PARENT ANNOUNCEMENT: PSSA testing will begin April 15, 2019 during AM & PM time blocks. Students are allowed as much time as needed to complete the testing; however, they must finish testing on the same day. Students may remain after school to complete any unfinished worked. The school will contact parents by 2:45pm if extended time may be required for your child. The complete schedule is listed below.

The annual Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) is a standards based criterion-referenced assessment used to measure a student’s attainment of the academic standards while also determining the degree to which school programs enable students to attain proficiency of the standards. Every Pennsylvania student in grades 3 through 8 take PSSA assessments in the Spring of each school year. High School students take a Keystone exit examine at the conclusion of their Literature, Biology, and Algebra classes.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education recognizes that students – and the schools that serve them – are more than just standardized test scores. Launched in November 2018, the Future Ready PA Index is the result of discussions with thousands of educators, parents, advocates, policymakers, and business leaders across Pennsylvania about how communities should evaluate schools.
