PSSA/Keystone Opt Out Procedures
Section 4.4 of Title 22, Chapter 4 of the state school code provides for the rights of any parent or guardian to excuse his or her child from the state assessment if, upon inspection of the testing materials, they find the assessment to be in conflict with their religious beliefs. This is the only basis for a parent or guardian to excuse his or her child from the statewide assessments. Below is a copy of the Apollo-Ridge School District PSSA/Keystone Opt Out Procedures along with copies of the confidentiality agreements. Please contact the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment at (724) 478-6000 ext: 6032 with any questions or concerns regarding these procedures.
