    The spring session of the state mandated Keystone Exams will be held May 14th through May 25th. Testing will begin promptly at 7:35 AM. Please make every effort to have your student arrive on time. Homeroom will be after the testing is completed. We have allotted approximately 90-100 minutes for each testing module.

    The following students will take a Spring Keystone exam:

    • Students who are currently enrolled in College Prep or Advanced Algebra I.
    • Students who are currently enrolled in College Prep, Advanced, or Honors Biology.
    • Students who are currently enrolled in College Prep, Advanced, or Honors World Literature, as well as those enrolled in Global Issues.
    • Any student who has completed Algebra I, Biology or 10th grade English and who has not yet taken the Keystone exam in that subject area.

    Any student who took the Keystone exams in December for the first time and scored Basic or Below Basic will be given the opportunity to retest. Additionally, any student who was enrolled in a Keystone Biology or Keystone Math course is eligible to retest if they did not completed their Project Based Assessment. Please reach out to your student’s guidance counselor by May 1st if you would like your child to be added to the test session.

    If your student is not being assessed, he/she will report to their normally scheduled class.

    As always, we are very appreciative of the student and parent support as we continue with this challenging time in public education.

    Please feel free to contact Mr. David Stango, Assistant Principal of Student Services, at David.Stango@rtsd.org if you have any questions.
