Spring 2017 PSSA Parent Information
Dear Parent/Guardian:

In a few weeks, students in grades 3-8 will begin to take the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA).

The PSSA is a standardized test administered in all public schools in Pennsylvania. The content areas included on the test are English Language Arts and Mathematics (grades 3-8) and Science (grades 4 and 8). For your reference, the testing window is listed below.

Spring 2017 PSSA Testing Window - Assessment Dates Testing Groups

English Language Arts April 3-7, 2017 Grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8
Mathematics April 24-28, 2017 Grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8
Science May 1-5, 2017 Grades 4 & 8
Make-up May 8-12, 2017 All Grades

It is critical that students are in school and arrive on time the days of the test. In the event a child arrives to school after the testing start time, he/she will be sent to an alternative location and will make up the assessment on an alternative day. In addition, students who are absent during the assessment will be required to make up any missed sections on alternative days. We ask that you schedule any appointments for your child outside of the testing window. While make-ups will be given, it is best for students to take the tests with their peers.

Parents and guardians may review the assessments prior to the testing window by making arrangements with the building principal. If after reviewing the test, parents/guardians find the test to be in conflict with their religious belief(s) and wish their child to be excused from the test, the parents/guardians must provide a written request that states the objection to the Superintendent of Schools. Please be aware that students who do not participate in the assessment due to parental request \ will negatively affect the school’s participation rate and can potentially have a negative impact on the School Performance Profile.

Enclosed is a parent informational sheet outlining the purpose of the PSSA as well as a document describing the “Code of Conduct” for test takers and the use of electronic devices during testing. In addition, information regarding the PSSA is available on the district home page under the Department, Curriculum & Instruction tab. Please contact the building principal of your child’s school if you have specific questions regarding the administration of the PSSA. Thank you for your continued support.
