    Assessment Results
    For students in the Class of 2023 or beyond, statewide graduation requirements include proficiency in the subject areas of Algebra I, Biology, and Literature. Students have options for meeting graduation requirements through passing the course-affiliated Keystone Exams and other pathways. Assessment results will be sent to families when they are received.

    Testing Participation
    All students who are enrolled in Algebra I, Biology and/or English 10 - including remote and in-person learners - will complete the Keystone Exam for that subject. Students who missed a previous administration of one or more of these subjects will take the Keystone exam for that subject as well.

    Parents/guardians may review the Keystone Exams if they believe they may be in conflict with their religious beliefs. Please contact the respective assessment coordinator to arrange an appointment by May 6:

    If, after viewing the exams, parents wish to exclude their child from testing due to a conflict with their religious beliefs, the parent may write a letter specifying their objection to Dr. John Rozzo, Superintendent, which must be received by the close of business on Friday, May 13, 2022.
