• Pennsylvania's New Graduation Requirements
    The Commonwealth's new graduation requirements will help guarantee that a Pennsylvania diploma reflects the skills and knowledge graduating students need to be successful in college and the workplace. These requirements will allow districts to ensure students - beginning with the class of 2015 - are meeting state standards. Through the Standards Aligned System (SAS) site, the Pennsylvania Department of Education will provide downloadable resources to guide planning and implementation, customizable tools and templates to help educators better inform parents and students, and general information and frequently asked questions concerning the new graduation requirements, including the Keystone Exams.
