12:51p, 1/29/2016 SHENANDOAH, Penna. - Last week, Pennsylvania State Legislators approved a bill that will delay the use of the state's Keystone Exams as a graduation requirement to the 2018-2019 School Year. Previously, members of the Class of 2017, this year's Junior Class, would be required to pass the exams to graduate. The Keystone Exams were introduced as a graduation requirement in 2013, and consist of three test subjects, Algebra 1, Literature, and Biology. Since the tests were introduced, schools have struggled across the commonwealth, including Shenandoah Valley, which had one student score "Advanced" on the Biology tests in the 2013-14 school year. Linked below are a few articles from different sources on the topic. We will also have an editorial later today on the subject.
