NOTE FROM PRINCIPAL ABOUT PSSA ATTENDANCE
PSSA Exams requires very tight security in administering the test. If your student is not in the PSSA room by 7:45 AM he/she will not be taking the test that day. Your student will be sitting in the front office conference room for approximately 3 hours and should be prepared with work to do.
We can not interrupt the testing room once the test has begun. Please do not schedule doctor appointments during the time of PSSA testing. Please click here for PSSA schedule
PSSA Exams and Cellphones and Electronic Devices
If a student is discovered using and/or having a cell phone or other electronic device in his or her possession during the administration of the PSSA, parents will be notified and appropriate consequences will be given. The student could receive both school and Pennsylvania Department of Education consequences, which may include scores being invalidated and/or a fine to replace test items. All testing materials are copyrighted property of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Penalties for violations of the Copyright Act may include the cost of replacing the compromised test item(s) or fines of no less than $750 up to $30,000 for a single violation. 17 U.S.C 101 et seq.
