PSSA Testing begins April 4, 2017.

March 3, 2017
Dear Parents and Guardians:

Please note that beginning on Tuesday, April 4, 2017, we will administer the PSSA (Pennsylvania System of School Assessment) according to the schedule below.

The Middle School and Intermediate School will be administering the PSSA Assessments on the following dates:

PSSA English Language Arts (Grades 3-8):  April 4, 5, 6, 7

PSSA Math (Grades 3-8): April 24, 25, 26

PSSA Science (Grades 4 and 8): May 2, 3

Not all students will be testing for the entire testing window above. The building administrators have developed a schedule of specific dates and times for each test within the required testing window for that test. The schedule provides adequate time for students to complete the assessments and is aligned with the age group and developmental needs of students in their building.

Attached for your review are Frequently Asked Questions regarding the PSSA state assessments. As in the past, we very much appreciate your support in emphasizing the importance of these assessments and that each child does his or her best work. Please be sure that your child is well rested and eats a healthy breakfast as the students do expend considerable effort during these assessments. 

If you have any questions or need any additional information, please feel free to contact your building principal or me.



 Mr. David Deramo                              

Assistant Superintendent
