PA Act 158 Graduation Pathways requires that all students in the state of Pennsylvania demonstrate proficiency on all three Keystone exams, or through an alternate pathway, in order to meet the statewide graduation requirement. This requirement applies to students in the Class of 2023 and beyond.
Students in the Class of 2023 and beyond who do not score “Proficient” or “Advanced” on all three Keystone exams must take further action to demonstrate proficiency and meet the statewide graduation requirement per Act 158 and also, by completing their Career Readiness Portfolio, which is already a requirement for all Emmaus High School students.
