14 How to Get Help *If your child is struggling encourage them to arrange for extra help, otherwise sendan or write a note so arrangementscan be made(Lunch, before or afterschool)After school homework club with a teacherOnline tutorials available with textbook
15 Keystone ExamsKeystone Exams are given to any student who is taking a Full Year Algebra 1 Course. (Algebra 1 Part 1 does not take it)Keystone Exam scores in 8th Grade count towards the High School AYP numbers.Failure to pass the Algebra 1 Keystone Exam in 8th Grade will result in a remediation class requirement in next year’s schedule at NHS.Given the fast pace of the Algebra 1 Course and the ramifications of the Keystone Exam, if you see your child is struggling, do not hesitate to contact me to discuss possible options.Last year Sandburg had 96% of the Algebra I students pass the Keystone Exam.
16 We must continue to work even harder and get that number over 90%! PSSAThank you for an outstanding effort on last years PSSA. Sandburg was 85% Proficient/Advanced.We must continue to work even harder and get that number over 90%!
