PA House Votes To Give Keystone Exam Alternatives

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – The PA House approved legislation that would amend the Public School Code to provide alternatives to the Keystone Exam as a high school graduation requirement. Senate Bill 1095 would give students options in addition to the Keystone Exam, including appropriate ACT or PSAT scores, completion of a pre-apprenticeship program and acceptance to an accredited four-year nonprofit institution of higher education. The bill acknowledges that students have different strengths and learning styles, and it would take them into account. The bill now goes to the state Senate for a concurrence vote. If approved, it would go to the governor’s desk.
