Attention parents of Virtual High School and MWCA High School students. If your child was in a Keystone eligible course during the 2019-2020 school year, you may opt them in to the December Keystone test by calling into the building. All students must meet state graduation requirements before a diploma can be granted. Participating and performing well in the Keystone assessment is one avenue a student can take.

The following courses are Keystone eligible courses: 10th grade English, Biology, Algebra IB, Algebra I, and Accelerate Algebra I/II. If your child took any of these course during the 2019-2020 school year, they are eligible to opt in to the Keystone make-up assessments this December. Please contact the school if your child qualifies and you wish to opt them in. 570-837-0046 ex. 2001 or 2003
