Does your child have to take the Keystone Exams?
If you're the parent of a student in grades seven through 11, you're invited to an informational meeting this Wednesday, Oct. 24, to hear more about the Keystone Exam from Keystone Oaks School District officials.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. and is expected to last one hour. It will be held in the Large Group Instruction Area (LGI) at Keystone Oaks Middle School.
The Keystone Exams are end-of–course proficiency assessment tests designed by the PA Department of Education as part of the changing school assessment system in Pennsylvania.
During the 2012-13 school year, Keystone Exams will be administered in Algebra I, Literature, and Biology. The Keystone Exams are part of new graduation requirements intended to ensure that a Pennsylvania high school diploma reflects skills and knowledge graduating students need to acquire to be successful in college and the workplace.
The Algebra I Keystone Exam will be administered to students in both Honors Math 8 and Honors Math 9 who previously completed Algebra I. All 10th-grade students will take Keystone Exams in Algebra I and Biology. All 11th-grade students will take Keystone Exams in Algebra I, Literature, and Biology.
