    This year the tests will be administered with the traditional paper and pencil method. No iPads are needed. The dates for the Keystone Exams will be May 13 and 14.

    School District transportation will be provided for ALL testing days and occur at the regular time in the morning, and a 1:40PM dismissal time. All testing rooms and proctors will be posted in the High School lobby by May 6, 2024.
