PSSA Testing

Students in grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 are required to participate in the 2020-2021 PSSA assessments. Please refer to the attached parent letters below that will outline information for both our Cyber Academy students and students attending in-person. Please take a few minutes to read the information and, most importantly, the hyperlinks to provide even more specific information for parents.

Please note: Non-school travel requests that will result in student absences will not be approved during these assessment dates. Parental requests for exclusion from the assessments must be made directly to the building principal and addressed to the Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Lloyd, and must adhere to the protocol identified on page 18 of the 2021 Pennsylvania System of School Assessment Handbook.
