|The PA Department of Education (PDE) has released guidance on the use of Keystone Exams related to the context of the current 2019-20 school year, federal assessment and accountability requirements, ESSA report card provisions, graduation requirements and moving into the 2020-21 school year. The guidance was released to address the various impacts related to the cancellation of this spring’s administration of Keystone Exams.|
The guidance also addresses upcoming Keystone testing windows. The summer Keystone Exam window will be delayed until September 28 through October 2, 2020 to accommodate schools in planning for make-up exams. Students affected by the cancellation of the exams during spring 2020 may choose to make-up one or more Keystone Exams in the delayed summer window, the winter testing window (December 1, 2020 through January 15, 2021), or the spring testing window (May 17-28, 2021).
