LANSDALE – To help parents and guardians have a better understanding of the Keystone exams and the expectations for students, the North Penn School District will hold two upcoming Keystone Parent Information Nights. During these information sessions, curriculum supervisors will review the curriculum and the academic program for secondary students that are aligned to Keystone expectations and the Pennsylvania Core Standards. Presenters will also review the support given to students through additional academic programs to ensure success on the exams. The various pathways for graduation, including Keystone readiness and state mandated project based assessment programs will also be discussed as well as a time for questions and answers. Currently, NPSD secondary students take three Keystone Exams in Algebra 1, Biology and English Literature.

On Tuesday, January 21, an information session will be held specifically for parents of incoming sixth grade parents. The January 21 Parent Information Night will be held at Penndale Middle School in the auditorium from 7 to 8 p.m. Penndale Middle School is located at 400 Penn Street in Lansdale.
