Curriculum & Instruction
Curriculum Statement: East Pennsboro Area School District is committed to providing a rigorous and comprehensive K-12 curriculum based on the Pennsylvania Core and Academic Standards. Our curriculum serves to attain the goal of creating future-ready students through the development of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to be successful in the 21st Century.
Assessment Overview: East Pennsboro Area School District (EPASD) students participate in Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) testing and Keystone exams.
The PSSA helps us understand how students in our elementary and middle schools are performing relative to Pennsylvania’s academic standards in English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, and Science and Technology. Individual student scores can be used to provide additional educational opportunities for students in need, and school scores help our District improve its curriculum and instructional approaches.
The Keystone exams assess middle and high school student proficiency in core subject areas and are one component used to determine whether our students meet high school graduation requirements. Like the PSSA, the Keystone Exams will help our District improve its progress related to state standards.
