Keystone Readiness CLASSROOM DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS (CDT) Is a set of online assessments, divided by content area, designed to provide diagnostic information in order to guide instruction and remediation. Assists educators in identifying student academic strengths, and areas in need of improvement, by providing links to classroom resources. The CDT reporting system is fully integrated in the Standards Aligned System (SAS) through PDE.
CLASSROOM DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS (CDT) Consists of multiplechoice questions. Based on content assessed by the Pennsylvania System of School Assessments (PSSA) and the Keystone Exams. Includes interactive and dynamic reporting for various diagnostic reporting categories.

GARNET VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL COURSE SELECTION GUIDE FOR 2014-2015
What is the Process? Master Schedule is a 5 step process CSG is the First Step Spring of previous year- student interest Teacher /Admin analysis Student surveys Networking with other districts LEA /BAC information Fall of Current year- teacher collaboration Building Department meetings/6-12 meetings State Requirements- PSSA to Keystones/Special education New pilots Edits and Revisions and technology
…Process continued Fall of Current year Review suggestions-Department chairs, Supervisors and Administration Building Administrators meet with central Administration Presentation to the School Board for approval CSG book updated and sent to printer Prepare for Phase II: Tally Collection

Proposed Pilot: Science Biology Keystone Workshop Remediation course for students who have not shown proficiency on the Keystone Exam State requirement for remediation Taken prior to the retest in Biology Focus on topics included in both modules of the exam.5 credit
Proposed Changes to Science Sequence Recommendation: To increase the number of students who will be exposed to Biology in grade 9, giving students the opportunity to select from a variety of high level science courses as junior and seniors. It is recommended that 8 th grade students who have completed Algebra & General Science be scheduled for Biology in Grade 9.
Proposed Pilot: Social Studies: Selection Process Reviewed offerings of 20 high schools Teachers poled to select 2 courses to pilot 450 students surveyed spring 2013- asked to select 3 courses from the teachers list Data analyzed- 4 courses of interest emerged
Proposed Pilot: Social Studies Sociology: The Evolution of U.S. Society through Sports Examines the role, purpose and value of sports in history Focus on the relationship of sports to the political, economic, and cultural institutions and value of society Use of primary and secondary sources.5 elective credit
Edits and Changes Art: Increase in materials fees Delaware County Technical School: Add – Dental Technology Eliminate – Pre Engineering Study of the current class rank and GPA system LEA format involving stakeholders to collect data and make recommendation Committee to include school board members, administrators, teachers, parents and students.
AP Exam Scores AP Exam scores are a weighted combination of student scores on the multiple-choice and free-response sections.
