The Keystone Exam requirements for graduation shall be defined in Chapter 4 of the Pennsylvania Code.

A graduation project must be approved and completed in order to graduate.  This will be completed as part of a student’s portfolio which meets the State’s mandated Chapter 339 Plan.  Chapter 339 is a Pennsylvania state mandate that requires all school districts in the Commonwealth to have a comprehensive guidance plan encompassing Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12. This plan must address the four Career Education & Work Standards. In order to graduate and earn a diploma, students must exhibit an understanding of these four areas through various career exploration activities by the end of their 11th grade year. Through these activities, students must produce eight pieces of evidence demonstrating their awareness and comprehension of the standards. The standards are as follows:
(1)    Career Awareness and Preparation 
(2)    Career Acquisition 
(3)    Career Retention and Advancement 
(4)    Entrepreneurship
